Fat transfer to breast: how much can be injected?
Doctor Answers 4
The most important aspect is the quality rather than the quantity. Also the amount that can be transferred is dependent on how much excess fat you have. It is important to consult with an experienced plastic surgeon who can show you results of patients similar to you so that you can make an informed decision to proceed.

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 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
The amount of fat transferred is dependent upon the amount of available fat for transfer and the size of your breasts. Large breasts can accommodate more fat. Not all fat transferred survives.
