I would visit with a plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your goals.
Breast Fat transfer over 50 years age
Am I too old for fat grafting?
The bottom line is if you are in good health, without systemic disease and have reasonable expectations then this is a good option for you. The usual surgical risks are still there: infection, bleeding, sensory changes, scarring, fat necrosis (for transfers), blood clots, etc. You may experience some sensory changes but it should be short lived ~ a few months, possibly. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience with fat transfers to the breast. Good luck!
