Can breast be lifted by using your own fat?
Yes and no. It depends how much sagging of the breasts you have. Without a frontal and side view photos no specific advise can be given. Do you like the volume of your breasts or you also want to be larger. A lot of women loose volume after pregnancy in the superior aspects of the breasts. If you have minimal sagging (your nipple is at the inframmmary crease or 1cm below it) you can get a nice improvement in shape and volume of your breasts. If your breasts sag more than that, you might benefit from a short scar breast lift first, followed by fat grafts later if you want to avoid implants.

Breast Lift with Fat Transfer?
Breast lifting surgery is designed to raise the position of the breasts and nipples/areola complexes on the chest wall. This cannot be accomplished with fat transfer. Breast lifting typically involve some degree of skin and/or subcutaneous tissue excision and a resulting tightening of the “skin envelope” of the breasts. This skin excision and tightening effect serves to raise the position of the breasts on the chest wall.
I hope this helps.
Breast Enhancement Using Your Own Body Fat
Thank you for your question.
While breasts cannot be lifted by transferring your own body fat, they can certainly be augmented (made larger). In many cases fat transfer alone can produce cosmetically desirable results. However, depending on the size and shape of your breast a breast lift (removing excess skin and re-positioning the areola) may also be required to achieve your preferred results. In our San Francisco Bay Area practice we have a high patient satisfaction rate with fat transfer. In addition to transferring fat to the breasts we frequently transfer fat to the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift) and to the face to replace volume loss as an alternative to temporary fillers.
I hope this helps.

Breast lift with autogolus fat transfer
Breast lift is a procedure to restore your nipple to a more youthful position on your chest wall. Depending on the amount of volume that has been lost and streeching of the skin over the years, there are various techniques that can accomplish this goal. If your current status provides a good skin envelope and appropriate nipple position you can correct this droopy nipple with an increase in volume. The most commonly used method is breast implants; silicone or saline. Fat transfer might also be used, assuming an adquate donor site for the fatty tissue. There have been some interesting results published in the Plastic Surgery literature in this regards. The ultmate decision should be made with a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in fat transfer. I hope this information is useful to you.

Using body fat to enhance breasts
Fat transfer is the new trend for transferring volume from one area of the body to the other. Popular areas include the face, the buttocks and recently the breasts. However, fat transfer is not magic. It is just another way to add volume. So, the volume addition may have a very slight lifting effect. However, if you have loose skin for ptotic (loose) breasts then you will more than likely require a mastopexy to achieve a nice result. If you post pictures, we may be able to give you more specific advice.

Breast lift by using one's own body fat?
If you have loose breast skin, droopy or sagging breasts, deflated breast skin from weight loss or breast feeding, you PROBABLY need surgical skin tightening to achieve a more youthful or "perky" look. This procedure (mastopexy) requires skin incisions to shape and reconfigure the breasts in virtually all cases where the nipples are below the inframammary crease line, or where they point down rather than forward.
In some mild cases, where the nipple/areola complexes face forward and are at or somewhat above the inframammary crease level, adding volume to the skin brassiere can provide the appearance of "lift" by adding bulk behind and below the lower pole of the breasts. Implants are the usual way plastic surgeons accomplish this, but fat grafting is an interesting consideration that has been widely promoted by a relatively small number of plastic surgeons or "cosmetic surgeons." The latest buzz or hype is to promote "stem cell grafting" by implying that "special" separation or concentration techniques can give superior fat for grafting than the "standard" grafts. I believe this is mostly baloney!
Fat grafting can provide modest amounts of volume to breasts, if properly performed, but most plastic surgeons are properly wary of injecting fat into tissues when they know some of the transferred fat may not survive, causing scars, lumps, or calcium deposits that can interfere with the mammographic detection of breast cancer. Getting enough fat to survive to adequately fill the breasts (evenly and smoothly) to give the appearance of lifting may not be realistically possible in most cases. If it is possible, I would expect multiple fat grafting sessions being necessary, at prohibitively high costs.
Ultimately, you could end up spending wads of cash to get scars, lumps, and calcium deposits in your breasts, and still end up needing the surgical mastopexy (and scars) you probably should consider in the first place. Read between the lines in the answers from my colleagues. I'm just telling it like it is!

Can Breasts be Lifted Using Own Body Fat?
Your body fat can be used to replenish lost breast volume.It will not help in significantly lifting your breasts.
Fat Grafting Is Not A Substitute For A Breast Lift
Despite the desire to lift breasts by any method other than that which creates a scar, it simply is not possible. Fat grafting like breast implants is all about making the breast bigger...but that will not change the position of the nipple which is the barometer by which the sagging breasts are defined. All fat grafting will do is take what you have and make the existing shape of your breasts bigger. Real breast lifts require real scars.
