Hi everyone, I am 31 y.o 5.5 115lb
On march I did Natural Breast Augmentation,
with Fat Transfer

Natural Breast Augmentation- doctor take fat from area that has enough fat, area u don't want to have fat, then he put this fat in breast, he make little incision in each breast, side of breast

Well, I actually decided last moment to transfer my fat to breast, my main goal was liposuction from auther thigh, but I knew that its possible to transfer my fat to breasts too,
It was very difficult decision for me because its scary:( what if my breast will be ugly:(
But I knew that if I don't decide fast because surgery was upcoming I will end up with waisted fat, what I mean is that if I don't put fat in my breast from my thigh then I will be unable to transfer fat to my breast next time,

In the first place I had very little fat in my thigh, doctor said that, however he said that he can improve my breast shape, I was around 34a , not sure but very little breast,

Doctor took around 220 cc from my thigh And a little bit from waist, ( there I had really not much)

Well I am 5 days after surgery, I like my breast, shape changed, nice, I still did not got used to them:) but I am really surprised that they look fuller,

Very important - I had little fat so it's not like silicone or other implants that make size or 2 bigger, that's not the case, also risky to much fat in breasts at once !!!!! Because of lumbs ,

I am still in pain, not in my breasts but my legs! Difficult to go to bathroom because I have to wear special garment (shorts)

Hi Sandra, You look awesome. How are you doing now? Are you still glad you did the transfer? Can you post an update w/pics? How does your lipo look and scars? Would you highly recommend your doctor still?

I think you look absolutely amazing and honestly if I was you I would stick to fat transfer. I had implants for 19 years (my original surgeon never informed me they would need replacing, I think if he had I would never have had the surgery) I had a removal last year with no replacement or lift.... I'm extremely happy with the tissue I have left.... I am now a 32C but I am considering fat drafting for the upper breast (just to fill in a little tiny bit... maybe 100cc per breast at the max.... if I had your shape I wouldn't even consider it....)

Hi b4 ever, thank you for information! I want implants but I know once I do there is no way back, so I think I will wait with that... It's too serious , to have something unnatural in your body, not really want that:( but on the other hand fat transfer did very little change and I lost at least half of that, if u have enough fat it's good to do, but remember- u will have scars, ( every cut ) some places scars more visible some places less visible ( under arms I have very Small scars, but on legs it's more visible, if u do this 100 cc maybe not enough, rember u will loose 40-50at least % But this is something u should ask doctor , Implants did u had?What type of

I am like you and on the fence about implants. I have decided to do the transfer to the breast to restore fullness, I think your body looks amazing the way it is btw. I would worry about the damage implants can do and thats why I personally choose not to get them. Good luck, keep updating!

Hi , timeforme3, thank u , u have nice body too, how much do you weight and height? I think you should lypo first, all procedures for cellulite( if this is what u meant) will make only temporary results, and u need to do few procedures and to do it again after awhile. Right now there is no method that will cure it 100%. But doctors won't say that to u because they want to make money! It's expensive also, I personally tried " wella shape , around 100$ per treatment, I did twice, second time I had bruises because they left on one area the equipment too long or pressed to hard, I stoped because I find out I need to do 6-10 treatments, and after that I need to repeat the procedure all over again ( because this procedure needs to repeat after certain time , u can try that such treatments / or other similar procedure but lypo should be first. ( I think) because they will remove fat from area where u have to much or where u want to get rid of it, area needs to heal , it takes time, then u will see whether u need to do or no, Hope it helps:)

You should do whatever is going to make you happy. I don't think implants cause health issues. Both saline and silicone implants are made of the same silicone shell. Rupture is rare and usually inky happens after you've had the implants for a while and d they're typically replaced before then. The new silicone implants are highly cohesive and do not leak. Most common problem with breast implant I think is capsular contracture which is greatly reduced by massaging smooth implants or getting textured implants. Next to that is infection but that's typical because of non sterile environment, poor hygiene

Until you have gotten ill from implants you cannot make that statement "work in progress"..a lot of us girls "got ill from our implants" saline and silicone. Ladies if you can do lifts and any thing natural is so much better and much less risks. How do you explain 100% pure healthy, like riding my bike 450 miles in the Colorado Mountain Rockies to not being able to hike a simple 2 miles after my Saline Implants. Seriously, ladies, do not take this lightly. Yes, you may not get ill from implants especially if you have the money to replace every 4 to 5 years! Or if you have the money when your implants have a capsular contracture, hopefully you will have the money to replace them. I had mine for 11 years, no problem with them as far as capsular contracture but white matter on the brain, pain and swelling in the body, those things feeling as fake as fake can be! Poor Hygiene, sorry, you can get sick with out having an infection when these saline and silicone implants are put in your body because SILICONE lined implants are poisonous! Our body does not need anything fake in our bodies especially silicone...No thanks, natural is better as my husbands has told me! He is soooo very thankful that my implants are in my refrigerator instead of in my chest!! And now how do you explain that I feel so much better physically and mentally with out my implants out of my body!! I can get out of bed!!! I can hike with confidence! I am going to try and get back on my bike and start Doing Ride the Rockies again!! My only problem now is "can I reverse the white spots on my brain?" I guess only time will tell. Do real research on real women and see how many women have gotten ill from their implants!

I never said you cannot get ill from implants. Any foreign object placed in Your body can cause harm. Simple OTC Meds people take can and does cause problems. And everyone should throughly research everything in my opinion and make the choice as to what they want to do from there. Also just because getting a lift or fat transfer doesn't add a foreign object to your body, there's still risks and complicatins with those

Procedures as well. Especially with fat transfer. One of the tops cons I saw about it was the increase difficulty with finding lumps performing a breast exam because of the added fat deposit that do get more lumpy sometimes. With any fat transfer there's risk of fat embolism which can and does cause death and there's been a few people on here that have died from that. Bottom line everything has risks. Do what makes you happy, but if the bad outweighs the good the answer should be simple.

I am sorry but you are down playing it to the many women that have gotten ill from the implants. You said "you don't think implants cause health issues" in your post on July 30th. Well, I am here to tell women, YES, they do!! I am not talking about surgery risks. I am talking about "HEALTH ISSUES" from silicone and saline implants. The HEALTH RISKS can be short term, long term and even death. Yes, Ladies, please do your research in all areas when doing plastic surgery and make sure you get a well qualified plastic surgeon. Ask your doctor to see the insert if you decide to go ahead with implants and you will see the warnings in the insert. Work in progress, if you start to have thyroid issues and female issue, please just remember to start with your implants...I do care about the outcome of women's issues...we go thru enough in our lives that we really do not need to go thru more in our lives than we have to!

As far as breast exams, my gynecologist understands my fat transfer and can determine if a lump is part of the fat transfer or cancer and my PS gave me the name of a qualified technician who knows how to read a mammogram and is very informed with fat transfers. I did my homework.

I think you are over analyzing my comments. I never said that you cannot get any health risks from implants. I gave my opinion on what I think. Of course there are health risks involved. For ex: if I'm outside and it's raining and lighting do I think I will get struck by lighting or electrocuted? No. Can it happen, absolutely. Anything can happen. You can have a bad reaction to the anesthesia and die. As I've stated over and over I recommend everyone research as much as possible on anything they plan on getting themselves into before they make any decisions. I have not told anyone whether they should or should not have a certain surgery done because it is there decision to make. And I have done my homework. I visit the implant manufactures websites on a regular basis and whatever information they had available for download, I downloaded it and have read over and over. Safety, data sheets, clinical trials.

Read your July 30th comment please, I am not over analyzing. Every one has a right to share their experience, just do not down play the fact that women DO get ill from implants...If I am outside and it is raining and it is lightning, yes, I do think there is a chance that I could get struck by lightning , therefore I take precautions. I think women need to heed the warning of Breast Implants and the fact that YES, they can get ill after the implants due to the fact that the implants are lined with silicone....that is a fact, not an opinion. I have spoken to enough women and going thru it myself to know for a fact that WE do and you can get ill from implants. All I am asking is do not sit there and say that "you do not think that implants can give you health issues" because you are NOT a doctor as you stated....I have spoken to all of my doctors and my neurologist told me about a female friend of his who took her implants out and is now back to her normal self after two years...have your opinion, just do not down play the fact that there are sick women out there from "IMPLANTS" ...end of story...

Hi work in progress, how much pain did u felt after surgery? Any limitations?
  • Reply
With any fat transfer you have to have to have enough fat to transfer bottom line. From the pics I don't think you did but of course I'm not a doc. And if you're ps knew you didn't have enough for your desired outcome, he shouldn'thave performed the surgery . Also when you're transferring fat to breast you can only transfer so much. It's only for a small augmentation and you really font know what your end result will be. Also Fay transfer is not always a good option because of necrosis and other things and the breasts can become very lumpy making it more difficult to detect cancerous lumps. If you're not opposed to implants which I don't think u are since I keep asking about them, I would suggest a shaped implant. But it kinda sucks you already spend $5k

Hi work in progress, doctor did informed me that I won't have dramatic results, I did lypo because I had little bit fat on my thigh, again not much, and I also wanted bigger breasts, it is difficult for me to see the change, but I can feel it when I touch, I think my only options is implants but once I do there is no wAy back.
