What is the fat volume recommended for breast fat transfer for each time?
Doctor Answers 3
thank you for your question. There are so many variables that gI into fat transfer. The concept of removing fat from one area of the body and transferring to another is analogous to a farmer planting seeds. Fat is living tissue and therefore cannot be simply injected otherwise complications develop. Because it is living tissue it must be placed and surrounded by healthy tissue to promote integration and new blood vessel connections. This is technique dependent and varies from surgeon the surgeon. It also depends on each patient and variations such as the size of the breast, breast expansion from pregnancy or weight fluctuations, and the amount of breast tissue vs. Fat and donor site availability. It is also encouraging to know that if a single transfer process does not yield the desired volume, additional fat transfer can certainly be performed and greater volumes can actually be achieved because of the foundation established from the first session. BRAVA expansion is also helpful in allowing external expansion of the breast prior to fat transfer which has been shown to increase both the amount of fat that can be placed and also long-term retention. Finally, in patients who want to be larger Kama Fitness Troy and combination with an implant may actually prove to be the best option. This would allow the implant to establish the Baseline volume and fat to further refine and shape the breast as well. In any case, I would encourage you to seek out a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in these matters. There are many videos on my website that extensively discuss all the aspects of fat transfer. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day. Dr. Kayser - Detroit
Volume of fat transfer to the breasts
Thank you for the question. The amount of fat transferred depends on the amount of fat available. I prefer to transfer more fat > 250 cc just because 40-60% of the fat will dissolve keep in mind that the remaining transferred fat may increase or decrease as you gain or lose weight
The fat transfer procedure may be repeated but that does not guarantee an increase in breast size by 2 cup sizes
To have more realistic and predictable expectations you may consider breast implants
Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience with both procedures so you can choose the best option to suit your needs
Best of luck!
The amount of fat that can be transferred depends upon the amount of fat available, and the donor site. If your breasts are very small, they may not accept too much fat at one time. Your doctor, who has examined you, will be the best one to tell you how much fat realistically can be transferred to each breast at one time.
