Looking to enhance the size and shape of your breasts in a natural and safe way? Consider fat transfer breast augmentation! This revolutionary cosmetic procedure involves transferring fat from one part of your body to your breasts, resulting in a fuller, more voluptuous look.

With no implants required, fat transfer breast augmentation offers a minimally invasive option for women who want to achieve their ideal breast size and shape without undergoing major surgery.


What Is A Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

A fat transfer breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing fat from one area of the body, typically the abdomen, thighs, or hips, and transferring it to the breasts to enhance their size and shape. This procedure is an alternative to traditional breast augmentation with implants and is often preferred by women who are looking for a more natural and subtle enhancement.

During the procedure, a plastic surgeon will use liposuction to remove fat from the donor area. The harvested fat is then purified and injected into the breasts to increase their volume and improve their contour. This technique can also be used to correct asymmetry and improve the overall appearance of the breasts.

You’ll have your surgery at our state-of-the-art surgical facility, which is fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).

AAAASF medicare certification is considered the gold standard in accreditation and one of the highest certifications any ambulatory center can obtain in the country.


The procedure generally takes about an hour and a half. The following is a general outline:

before & After



Your recovery is shorter than when implants are placed. However, you will still need to be mindful of your body. You’ll be wearing a compression garment in the area where the fat was harvested and will need to continue wearing this garment for about two weeks. This is to help with swelling and bruising, as well as allow your skin to retract to your leaner contours. You’ll also need to wear a soft cotton sports bra without underwire.

At first, your breasts and liposuctioned areas will be affected by swelling and bruising. Swelling will make your breasts look larger than you may like. In a couple of weeks, these side effects will gradually subside.

You can start showering the day after surgery, using mild soap to clean your incisions. You won’t be able to take a bath until about two weeks after your surgery. This will help reduce your risk of infection.


You can return to sedentary work within a couple of days to a week.

You can start working out again in about three weeks. Make sure to start off slowly and increase intensity gradually.


After having breast enhancement with fat transfer, your breasts will be fuller and more proportionate. The great thing about this technique is that your results will look and feel totally natural!

The consultation with Dr. Gartner is a private medical appointment to discuss how you would like to enhance your appearance with breast augmentation.

You may want to bring notes of what you’d like to discuss as well, so you can get all the information you need to make an informed decision. Make sure to include your questions and concerns about Dr. Gartner’s experience, our facility, the surgery and your recovery.

Benefits Of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Fat transfer breast augmentation offers a number of benefits over traditional breast augmentation with implants. Here are some of the key advantages of this procedure:

Two weeks before your surgery, you’ll need to stop smoking. Smoking has been associated with a delayed recovery and can also increase your risk of infection.

Two weeks before your surgery, you’ll need to stop taking medications and supplements that increase your risk of bruising and bleeding, such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen and Vitamin E.

If you are too thin and don’t have enough fat to transfer to your breasts, you may need to gain weight. Dr. Gartner will let you know if this is necessary during your consultation.


How do you know if you’re a candidate for a fat transfer breast reduction surgery? Here are some questions we’ll ask you to help determine this:

Do you have a medical condition that would make surgery dangerous?


Do you take any medications that would increase your risk of developing complications, such as bleeding or blood clots?


Are you pregnant or breastfeeding?


Do you understand the risks related to breast augmentation?


Are you making the decision to improve your appearance for yourself, rather than to satisfy someone else?


Do you have realistic expectations of your treatment?

Dr. Gartner uses a micro-droplet injection technique that involves making a series of injections with a microcannula to deliver the fat into your breasts. Doing this gives each breast a smoother, more balanced contour. It also improves the rate at which the injected fat will take to your breasts, since it allows micro blood vessels to form in each droplet of fat, supporting its survival. The size of the microcannula is so small that any resulting scars will be practically invisible.

Dr. Gartner can perform more than one injection session to achieve the results you want.


In fact, it may be recommended, according to a study that found patients experienced satisfying results and less complications when a series of injections were performed to augment their breast size for reconstruction or cosmetic purposes[1].

How Long Do The Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Results Last For?

The results of a fat transfer breast augmentation can vary, but typically they can be long-lasting and even permanent. During the procedure, purified fat cells are injected into the breasts, which can integrate with the surrounding tissue and blood supply. Although some of the injected fat cells may be reabsorbed by the body over time, many can remain in place, resulting in lasting results. However, factors such as weight fluctuations and aging can affect the appearance of the breasts over time. To ensure the best long-term results, it’s important to follow guidelines for post-operative care.
