insure fat survival in breasts
First no pressure on breasts or massage for 2 months. Second eat some carbohydrates. Carbs raise yor insulin level which protects and preserves your fat.These are my two most practical. Waring the Brava also will help

Optimizing fat graft take
Here are some suggestions:
1) Keep your weight stable
2) Don't smoke
3) For fat grafting to the breast, consider using the BRAVA post-op
4) Don't lie on the fat grafted area - it's sensitive to pressure.
The rest is up to mother nature!
Survival Fat Grafting - Some Tips
It is easier to tell you what not to do than what to do to increase survival of your fat grafts. Common sense would dictate that eating a balanced diet and not fasting (avoid catabolism), and no heavy lifting or pressure on your chest for 3-6 weeks might be beneficial. I personally do not recommend massage should be done until after an adequate blood supply and cell stability has been restored, so would wait at least 3 weeks or more. Most of all smoking will decrease fat survival after transfer.
I am unaware of any specific medications or supplements that specifically enhance fat survival.
