Thank you for your question. About 60-70% of the grafted fat survives. At 6 months you will have a good idea of your results. Some women have a second or third procedure which continues to increase your volume safely. The best way to assess if you have donor fat available and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery. Best of luck! Dr. Schwartz Board Certified Plastic Surgeon #RealSelf100Surgeon
Fat transfer in thin patients
their is always somewhere a plastic surgeon can find some fat to suction and then transfer to your breasts, it just depends on how much is available and what the goals of the procedure are.

You need some fat to transfer to your breasts
- You need to have some fat to transfer. Most skinny people still have some fat in their bums. Often they don't want to touch that area though. Nonetheless, if you have some fat and wonder if you would be a candidate, then see a plastic surgeon that does a lot of fat transfer.
- Not all plastic surgeons do fat grafting well. It is very meticulous and fat must be gently removed and processed prior to being injected. Injection needs to be done drop by drop to get the best survival. Many great plastic surgeons don't have the patience for this surgery. Make sure that your surgeon does a ton of this as part of their practise. Otherwise you will pay to have fat transferred that does not survive in the end.
