What is the operation of breast augmentation with its own fat?
The transfer of its own fat is also used for breast augmentation, basically it is harvested fat from areas with excess and injected into the breast after the fat has been conditioned for injection. Several injection stages are usually required until the desired volume is reached.
Many women now choose breast augmentation with fat transfer as a natural alternative for augmentation without resorting to breast implants. Breast augmentation with fat transfer is considered a more natural approach to this procedure, because it uses its own fat cells instead of artificial materials such as silicone implants.
The costs of the operation of breast augmentation with its own fat.
The costs of a harvest and injection stage are 2500-3000 euros. It usually takes at least two stages of injection. These costs include all the necessary materials, the anesthesia operation and a night of hospitalization.

How does the operation of breast augmentation with its own fat?
This intervention can be carried out either in local anesthesia with sedation or in general anesthesia. The operation usually takes 2 hours.
Its own fat is used in this type of breast augmentation. After washing and filtering for the removal of non-fatty tissue fat is injected into the area usually subcutaneously by trying to avoid injection into the glandular tissue (proper breast)
As an additional benefit, liposuction can be used to remove the fat that will then be used for breast augmentation through fat transfer. The fat is removed from the thighs, abdomen, buttocks or another area with excess fat, providing the additional advantage of slimming and toning.
Fat transfer can be used as an adjunct after an implant or in combination with an implant process.
If there is very little coverage on the chest wall, which translates through very little coverage over an implant, the fat can be used to increase the thickness of the coating tissue. Some breast asymses can be treated by a combination of implants and fat transfer. The neckline line can also be improved by transferring fat. However, this technique is not suitable for each patient. It is recommended to those patients who want to increase the size of the cup with a size, those who need increased augmentation in the upper breast area, as well as after a “conservation” surgery following breast cancer.
What do I expect after the operation?
If the operation was done with general anesthesia after you wake up from anesthesia pain and feeling of nausea drowsiness and weakness will be the things that need to be controlled by anti-angic and anti-emetic drugs.
The breasts and the area from which the fat has been extracted will be swollen and painful until a week. Multiple ecchymosis can be formed in both places but they will gradually retire.
You will need to wear a medical bra to support breast shape for 6 weeks. At the level of the donor area you will wear a compressive garment for 4 weeks.
At 3 months post operator swelling of the breasts will be 90 last and they will have almost the final form. At 6 months, the surgeon will be able to decide if another lipofiling session is needed to achieve the initial planned volume.
Risks and side effects associated with the operation.
Specific risks and special considerations related to the procedure.
Patients undergoing this type of treatment should have been examined by a mammogram and ultrasound prior to surgical intervention in accordance with the guidelines established by the American Society of Aesthetic Surgery, and followed of mammograms and Echographies performed regularly for several years after intervention. The information currently available is not sufficient for patients to appear in the ambulatory, carry out the procedure and be discharged immediately after intervention. If patients are not treated on the basis of these lines of conduct, fat transfer can be used improperly, worsening of the patient’s condition and causing serious breast problems.
- asymmetry Due to the fact that the fat may not survive the same in all areas where it has been transplanted.
- infection is a very rare possibility but should be treated from the first signs and you will usually be given a prophylactic antibiotic treatment.
- bleeding is usually limited and does not constitute a problem.
- erythema may manifest up to one week post intervention especially in cases of an increased amount of fat transferred due to the fact that the fat does not survive in full and the one that dies determines erythema.
