What is the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation procedure?

The Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation procedure is the most natural breast augmentation procedure available today. In simple terms, it involves using your excess fat deposits from other parts of your body and reinjecting your fat cells into your breasts to give you a rounder breast shape, especially in the upper pole region. Call it the jiggle with the sizzle.

  • Done under local anesthesia as an out-patient procedure at Infini Liposuction in Scottsdale, Arizona

How do I prepare for my liposuction procedure?

  • Do not take thinning drugs like Aspirin and Ibuprofen several days before
  • Avoid drinking alcohol or smoking
  • On the day of your surgery have a regular breakfast
  • A Baseline mammogram may be needed
  • Organize for a person to take you to the clinic and drive you back home

What kind of results can I expect?

Following surgery, the breasts will appear initially fuller. Patients can experience a 1-2 cup size increase from the procedure, followed by a decrease in size due to fat loss. It is typical for 1/3 of the transferred fat to be lost after a month or two after the breast augmentation surgery. After that, you can expect to see the final size and look of your new figure.

The procedure is designed to subtly improve the shape, contour, and fullness to your upper chest. If those are your goals, then this will be an ideal procedure for you

What is the downtime for the procedure?

The usual downtime for this procedure is 2-3 days. Most patients state that the procedure’s liposuction portion is associated with more discomfort than the actual breast transfer procedure. The majority of patients are back to work in 3 days. Mild to moderate exercise is encouraged after the first few weeks, but it must be low impact.

We advise patients to avoid any rigorous jumping or running for two months after the procedure.

Can I wear my regular bra after the surgery?

The doctor will suggest a special bra after the surgery. After a week, you will be able to wear a regular bra.

What is the cost of the procedure?

If you come in for a liposuction procedure, you can add the added Fat transfer Breast Augmentation for $5,000. If you are focused on the surgery, it starts at $10,000, depending on each patient’s different surgical requirements.
