I had Macrolane done years ago. Slight really slight difference it made. Lots of pain and it only did last around 8 months. Complete waste of money ...

I do not advise a fat transfer for breast augmentation. My result is undesirable. My breasts are lumpy and clumpy which make breast cancer detection a challenge. Just had a mammogram which led to the radiologist performing my ultrasound. I go again in 7 months for more of the same. An $11,000 disaster. Wish I'd opted for a lift.

having fat transfer has been amazing, we have not yet finished my revisions l am aware that there is no guarantee of symmetry, l am very pleased with results so far, anything was better than a mastectomy,
l now have a cleverage and more fuller breasts and love the results so far.

Thanks so much for writing a review of your experience, anon7741. How much of a difference does fat transfer make in cup sizes?

hi sharon,
l was a 38D before my reconstruction, l was advised by one surgeon to aim for a 36B, l am very lucky that Mr Staiano has given me 38D even though my radiation side it a little smaller, but have been reassured that we will eventually get there with more fat transfer,
my breasts feel more firm with no droop also feel natural

Wow, I didn't realise there would be that much of a jump! I saw a show about Macrolane breast enhancement a few years ago (not the same as fat transfer, but also non-invasive) and it wasn't even a cup size difference. It's great you were able to get the results you were hoping for.

hi sharon,
thank you for your reply,l have a little more revision but yes l am very pleased.
As for Macrolane there as been quite alot of different opinions about this surgery.

l am quite surprised that on this site fat transfer is only 40% voted.
l have spoken to quite a number of people who are as happy with there results from fat transfer, in cosmetic and breast cancer reconstructions.

I've heard mixed reviews for Macrolane too. I don't hear much about it anymore so I guess it never really caught on?

I think the fat transfer rating has a lot to do with where it's injected. Under the eyes, for example, it can turn into lumps if it's not put in perfectly. A lot of people have problems here. My non-medical head says there might be a little less nuance to injecting breasts... the skin in thicker, there's more volume, etc.

This is why people who decide to have any plastic surgery should choose a plastic surgeon who is fully qualified.
