Fat Transfer to breasts: Dr. Leeman - Austin, TX
I am very happy with the outcome. It is important...
I had a difficult case because I had breast implants and they were removed almost 10 years ago. When they were removed my breasts had a lot of scar tissue and indentations. As a result, my breasts were smaller than when I initially had the implants, and they were misshapen. I waited a long time before posting my results because I lost all of the fat from my first surgery. Now, I can honestly say that it has been over 3 months and I am still a B-cup (I was barely an A-cup... I could fit an A on top, but not on the bottom due to my scarring).
I was very unhappy with the first fat transfer, which was performed by a doctor in Huntington Beach, California (who I do not recommend, Dr. Altman). The second procedure was performed by Dr. Leeman (Austin, TX), who I highly recommend. I will review Dr. Leeman below.
Correction - Dr. Altman is a good plastic surgeon, Dr. Accetta was my first doctor
I am so happy with the results of my procedure with Dr. Leeman. He was honest with me from the beginning and told me that I probably would not get a full cup increase due to my limited amount of fat. (Sidenote: I actually did get a full cup increase, but he was being conservative, which I prefer). He was creative in trying to manage my difficult situation of having scar tissue and ensuring that my fat stayed. He suggested an A-cell sheet to help with the scar tissue, which pulled out the indentation that was on one of my breasts (this was a result of implants). He focused on placing the fat at the bottom of my breast, which helped to correct the shape of my breast. He also suggested using PRP, which he can explain better but involves drawing a small amount of blood and mixing it with the fat (I think) to ensure that the fat will stay. Dr. Leeman and his staff are amazing! They make you feel comfortable and are quick to respond to emails. They are supportive and helpful. My husband was with me on the day of the surgery and they phoned him to let him know when the surgery was done and they helped me downstairs... they were great! During the surgery a nurse was helping me through some of the painful parts and would literally hold my hand when she could tell I was uncomfortable. Again, such wonderful supportive staff! I would definitely return to Dr. Leeman and his wonderful team if I were to get any other procedure done and I highly recommend him to anyone getting this procedure.
