5 out of 5 stars Breast Fat Transfer

23 Year Old Asian Fat Transfer to Breasts - Charlotte, NC

Well I've been reading the posts on this site for awhile now, and I finally had the courage to contact some doctors about breast fat transfer. I originally talked to Dr. Yovino, Dr. Park and Dr. Ronan but they all said I was too skinny. I thought it was finally over for me until I found Dr. Bednar's work and reviews. I honestly don't even think I'm super skinny compared to friends of my height...

Dr. Bednar - Fat Transfer to Breasts - Charlotte, NC

I am 5'11 and 165 lbs. - a healthy weight. Measurements: 36D bust (they look/function more like a B, but are technically a D or even DD), 30" waist, 44" at my thigh's widest. My body does not change its shape no matter how much I exercise or eat healthy. This is just my shape, and I've had enough of it!! Full disclosure: I am an artistic nude model - it is very important to me that I...

41 Year Old, 2 Kids, 5' 7", 140lbs, Fat Transfer to the Breasts - Charlotte, NC

I have an athletic build and have always had small breasts. I breast fed both my boys. Because they are so small they aren't sagging and still actually have a nice shape. Per Victoria Secret I should wear a 32A bra. I really want more fullness and I'm tired of never filling out any of my cute clothes. Since I'm so active breast implants are a bit scary to me. I don't like the idea of more...

55yr old -Dr Bednar- fat transfer to breast (and a bit to face)

Like so many, breastfed kids so deflated chest. I exercise daily and eat healthy balanced diet most days, but have stubborn areas of fat that I hope are good deposits for survival after transfer to breasts. I'm on schedule but not yet made up my mind whether to have small amount transferred to face at same time. Is there anyone out there who had closer to 10 days to get to point of hiding...

Implant Removal with Fat Transfer to Breasts - Charlotte, NC

This site has been invaluable to me as far as information, motivation and support so I want to do the same for other women out there considering this procedure and share my experience. Dr. Bednar and his ENTIRE staff are beyond amazing!! I have never in my life met a group of people that are so compassionate, skilled, knowledgeable and work so seamlessly together. From the initial consultation...

Tightening the Tootie - Charlotte, NC

I will be having the first of a series of three Femilift treatments on June 20th. I am not telling my husband. I thought about it and decided I wanted to get his unprompted review. Due to having another procedure the same day, I will have to wait a few weeks before turning my husband into a unknowingly recruited data scientist. But I plan to report ASAP as this is a newer procedure and I...

Dr. Bednar - Breast Implant Removal with Fat Transfer to Breasts - Charlotte, NC

After having implant for 13 years, it's time for a change! I have decided to have my implants, which are Mentor High Profile 380 f.t 450 (R) 425 (L), replaced using the fat transfer method. How many times have we wanted to take fat from one place and put it in another? Well June 20th, I will have that opportunity. Can anyone who has had this procedure recommend clothing options during...

Happy 30th to Me! - Charlotte, NC

In 2009 I read this amazing article in WIRED magazine about a procedure that could transfer fat from different parts of your body to your breasts. Being a small 32a, I was instantly intrigued as I did not like the idea of having a foreign object (such as an implant) inserted into my body. At the time, however, fat transfer was not widely used and the cost was about $15k! I had to put my boob...

Extremly Satisfied with Fat Transfer to Breasts - Charlotte, NC

I'm pretty late writing this review, but wanted to wait to see the long term results. I had liposuction with fat transfer to breasts. I have increased and maintained a full two cup size increase. My breasts are fuller and I have much better cleavage. I am very happy with the results and I'd do it again! It looks so natural that I forget I've had something done, until I try to wear old...

Breast Fat Transfer - 28 Yr, No Kids, 5'6" 120 Lbs

I couldn't be more ecstatic I'm finally doing this! I have been 34A since puberty and have been waiting patiently for the day I grew into a full B cup. After all this time, it hasn't happened, so here we go! I thought about implants initially, but I didn't want to have fake looking breasts, nor the loss of sensation in my breasts. And since I'm really physically active, I never wanted...
