Fat transfer to the breasts
You are definitely an excellent candidate for fat transfer to the breast. You just need to be careful with your expectations on the fat transfer. A limited amount can be transferred at each time, usually 250-300cc. This is very roughly one breast size. Achieving an E is definitely not possible with fat transfer. This procedure is better served for those desiring a more natural appearance, providing more fullness with your own tissue. Fat transfer to the breasts have the following advantages:
- 1.No foreign body (no implant)
- 2.No significant incisions or dissection
- 3.No risks associated with breast implants – hardening (capsular contracture), infection, removal of implants, no injury to the pectoralis muscle.
- 4.Patients own tissue, natural softer feel
Fat transfer expectations
I think your expectations for breast augmentation using autologous fat grafting are unrealistic. The photo you showed of is of a woman augmented with an oversized breast implant. If that's the look you're after, then consider augmentation using a breast implant and combine that procedure with liposuction. Much more reliable than fat grafting to the breast.
