Fat transfer to breast and face

I have always been very self conscious of my...

I have always been very self conscious of my breasts, size and shape. I wear a 34 B cup heavily padded push up bra. I have not inherited this size as ALL my female relatives are DD or bigger, even my daughter!

Any way I booked and paid my deposit for saline breast implants, but I totally freaked out and forfeited my deposit in 2010. I am so excited to stumble upon AFT for breast augmentation.

I am booked in for 17th June, I am using Noogleberry for pre expansion which is working very well. I have been noogling for a few months now and I my swelling lasts for a few days and I think I have some actually growth. ( always the optimist)

I am 5'5 150 lbs (ish) so about 10lbs above my ideal weight. I want to lose the weight before my procedure.

Hi. Do you have a photo of what you looked like before NB, as I have done this procedure myself and find I can't compare when the NB enlarges them. If you are UK based, would you mind saying who is doing your FT? Good luck!

Thank you Amelia, I have been avidly reading all the reviews, your results are amazing, not just your breasts but your lipo as well. Did you have a mammogram before your AFT?
Reply
Hi Exq, yes, I had a mammogram pre-op and 8 months post op since gyn found a couple tiny lumps that I did not see or feel. Post op mammo just showed fat and oil cysts from transfer.

Thanks, it has tons of padding, think that is why it my fav!

Your date is coming! To be able to look similar to your 'wish pics' you would need to have both your abs & your waist lipoed. When they lipo abs, they do not do the waist as included (it is a separate area). Or, you could wear a corset to taper in your waist line but if done incorrectly it has risks. I have considered it as my measurements are 36,26,36 and my waist feels too big. I'd really like it to be a 24 or 25. Just something for you to consider. Also, after getting my hips done, my waist seems too big for my hips (they do not have the drama they used to have that comes with the more difference in inches between the 2) so I kinda wish I asked for a little off of the waist to make my new hips in proportion to my waist. Everything kinda goes together so when we only get one part lipoed it seems like something is 'off', out of balance. I hope this makes sense.

A month to get everything in order. How long u r taking off work? Do u need to wear a special bra or anything? Good luck.

Thank you. I will take a week off work, do you think that will be long enough? I live 5 hours from the surgery, I am staying in a hotel for two nights after with my daughter then I will have to drive home alone as my daughter lives near the surgery. I will have to wear my noogleberry breast pump a couple hours a day before surgery (this is on my own volition not prescribed by my Dr)

Personally a week would have been fine but everybody is different. Good luck.

Today was THE day

Surgery went well, I was operated on under local anestic , they took a litre out of my upper lower abdomin, not very painful but horrible feeling as they inject the anestic fluid and do the lipo.
I had 156cc in right breast, 180cc in left, I was hoping for more but this is the first of two maybe three procedures.
I will bet u r going to look terrific. Keep us informed.

Look at all my typos, one should not blog when one is on Valium

Feeling remarkably well today after great night sleep, I have to sleep on my back, naturally a side sleeper. I used a travel pillow to help me keep there. Guess where all my bruising and swelling is? I will add a guess what this is pic
Good luck your inspiring keep us posted.

Day 2

Physically feeling good, if the feeling of a herd of horses trampling over your stomach is good. Only in pain when standing up or bending. Very apprehensive about my fat and if any will stay, I am being so careful, I have not had any caffeine or alcohol for a month leading up to AFT and will try to keep at it.

Had a brief meeting with my Dr today, he is happy with progress, we will be taking fat from love handles and outer thigh for next graft in Sept 14.
So far you look great. I feel we have similar body types and I want to have a similar procedure done. Please keep posting :)

Thank you time! I had a look at your profile and we do have very similar shape. I also see that your considering breast implants? Please please look further into that procedure, I have read so many horror stories about them. Good luck with what ever you decide xxx

Good luck with your healing!!

Day 5

Feeling great, only mild pain on stomach. Yesterday I decided to spring clean my bedroom, my goodness didn't I get a work out! I am always worried about my boobies, is stretching my arms when I hang the washing damaging my fat, is washing my windows interrupting the grafting process, will my boobies shrink if I lift heavy things and on and on it goes, OMG, it is doing my head in! I have decided that what will be will be. To give my fat the incentive to stay with me by looking after myself well.

I am obsessed with my boobies, I know they still look small but for me they are a big improvement. I just love love love them, I massage them very gently with coconut oil every day, coo and smile at them like they are my babies. Ha ha my partner watches on with slightly tinged green amusement.

Before my procedure I did a month detox, no alcohol, caffeine and limited sugar, drank fresh coconut juice, lemon water, lots of fresh veg and salad, exercised, had lymphatic massages. What more could a girl do?

Daily ritual, 5 min skin brush, very lightly over stomach and breasts, shower, no direct water on boobs as I read somewhere sometime in my obsessive search for info that hot water could melt the fat and it not graft, then I lay on my bed in the sun and massage my stomach with coconut oil using a jade roller. Bach to work on Monday so this will change. I drink lemon water first thing in the morning and one or two glasses of home made kefir. Kefir is my new health obsession, my 86 yr old aunt put me onto it.
How pain full is recovery overall after fat transfer to boonies? It looks like it would be tender for a very long time.

My breasts were not painful at all. They were swollen and heavy for a few weeks but very minimal pain.

Good healing. I hope u see wonderful results, u r much braver than I.

6 weeks Feeling like all my fat has disappeared

At the six week mark and so worried that I will lose more fat. Lipo sites are fine, a few lumps on my stomach but they seem to be improving. Started back at the gym this week and loving it
Thanks for your story. I had my implants removed and fat transfer 1 1/2 weeks ago. I'm hoping my fat stays. Will definitely be following your progress. You look great!

Thanks shantel, how is your fat transfer going?

Hi, thanks for the update! you look amazing! I am wondering about stomach lipo and end results. Please when you have time update with a photo or experience in that area. I have a doctor who wants to do full stomach and flanks on me, and another that just says stomach alone. What do you think? thanks!

You look great! What type of lipo did they use on you? Traditional, or Vaser???
Reply
Thanks salt, they used regular lipo and were very careful as they need to protect the fat and keep it healthy for transfer
Reply
How did it go? Hope you are feeling well! Let us know how many cc's they were able to get!

Day one after 2nd AFT

Wow! Looking good! Nice transfer and projection this time.
Reply
Thanks Amelia, I know it's mostly swelling but I am very happy. I should stop comparing myself to others and stop worrying about how many cc's and be content. I will go back for a couple of touch ups to build up my breasts under Neath the nipple. I have 370cc frozen fat so thankfully no more lipo for a while.
Reply
No more lipo for a while sounds good! Frozen fat sounds great! Glad you are happy. I really do love the fat transfer procedure. I think it is the neatest thing to take fat from one place & put it anywhere we want!
