Augmentation With Fat Transfer

Dr. Malek understands that many women prefer to maintain a natural appearance. For those seeking a modest increase in cup size without the use of implants, he suggests breast augmentation through fat transfer.

Fat transfer breast augmentation involves the gentle extraction of fat from the patient's own body, followed by purification and injection to enhance breast fullness or achieve a slight increase in cup size. Utilizing the body's own fat is deemed safe and is suitable for individuals with excess fat they wish to utilize elsewhere. This procedure demands advanced skills and precision, making Dr. Malek an excellent choice.

What Can I Expect From A Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation In Scottsdale?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is performed under local anesthesia, like any other breast augmentation procedure. During the procedure, Dr. Malek will extract fat from areas with excess fatty tissue using liposuction. The areas of fat removal are typically the legs, lower back, and stomach areas, if possible. The fat is then purified and meticulously injected into the breasts through small incisions.

Compared to traditional breast augmentation, this procedure is less invasive, with results having the ability of lasting a lifetime. While most of the transferred fat remains in the breast area, a small portion may be reabsorbed by the body over time. There are many benefits to breast augmentation with fat transfer, including:

  • Subtle increase in breast volume, achieving balance
  • Enhanced self-assurance
  • Ability to wear desired clothing styles
  • Breasts with a natural look and feel
