Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Rather than unnatural implants to improve the size and shape of your breasts, we offer a natural way of using fat from your own body to increase cup sizes. We are now offering a much more natural way of using fat from your own body rather than unnatural implants to improve the size and shape of your breasts. We have the surgeon with the skills to transfer fat obtained from your own body (such as tummy, hips and waist) during a liposuction procedure, then place the tissue into your breasts to increase their size up to one and a half cup sizes.

The tissue added to your breasts is indistinguishable from the look and feel of your natural breasts; there is simply no more natural way to enhance your breast size and shape. Read on to learn more about our Phoenix Breast Augmentation Procedures!

Experience Matters

We understand you have questions; you want the latest information and facts. In this relatively new procedure we also know you want the best care and expertise available.

Leading our Phoenix, Arizona team is William E. Shuell, M.D. He is one of only four physicians nationwide who is Double Board-Certified as a specialist in both Obstetrics & Gynecology and Cosmetic Plastic Surgery.

This unique combination has given Dr. Shuell a deep understanding of the fatty areas of a woman’s body, of the need to restore proper proportion, symmetry and balance–and to be certain the areas being contoured will result in a pleasing and natural appearance.

He and our staff will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and safe before, during and after your breast enhancement treatment.

Is Breast Enhancement Right for You?

Known as “Structural Fat Grafting,” this process has been used successfully for several decades, but the science has advanced recently to greatly improve results.

A very high percentage of your transferred fat typically survives and thrives allowing you to keep a full, new appearance for life. Patients who want restoration of lost breast fullness or a moderate size increase are excellent candidates. Many candidates have naturally small breasts or have a mismatch in size. Others may be concerned by contour changes after breast implant surgery or other breast issues.

How Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Works

You will have a pre-operative exam and consultation with Dr. Shuell, who will explain the process and address all of your concerns. A baseline mammogram may be needed.

On the day of your procedure you can enjoy your usual breakfast, and then come to the clinic. Photos will be taken, some mild medications will be given to you, and a local anesthetic will be used. The fat will be collected in a specially designed sterile container, which will wash and separate the living fat cells from the unwanted fluid and debris, providing your surgeon with healthy fat that will then be transferred into your breasts, all according to the plan that you created with Dr. Shuell.

You will be awake (but lightly sedated with oral medications), and all treatment areas will be numb. Discomfort is minimal and far less than a traditional breast implant surgery. There may be some mild bruising, and you will be asked to take it easy for a few days; there is really no “down time.”

To summarize natural breast augmentation’s advantages:

  • Breast enlargement using your own “natural” filler
  • No need for saline or silicone gel implants
  • Rapid return to your usual activities
  • No incisions! Your procedure is done through small needle entry only
  • Significantly reduced cost versus implant surgery
  • Avoidance of direct surgery, its risks, incisions and scarring
  • No need for the costs and risks of general anesthesia
  • Appearance that is undetectable to anyone-even an intimate partner
  • No decrease in nipple sensation
  • No interference with future breastfeeding
