Fat transfer breast augmentation
1. only one cup size can be achieved
2. some of the re-injected fat calcifies, which could be mistaken for breast cancer on a mammogram.
3. you may develop oil cysts and tissue scarring
4. results can be unpredictable and require many sessions to achieve your desired results.
Currently, there is no research that proves fat transfer is safer than implants (silicone or saline).
