Thank you for your question.  Yes, it would be best to wait after having babies before getting a breast fat transfer.  Also, it may be likely that you would need a breast lift as well.  Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.  Good luck!

Fat transfer

If you plan to become pregnant soon, yes, it is best to wait. If you don't plan to have children anytime soon, you might want tot proceed. Do remember that breasts can change--bigger or smaller-- with pregnancy. After pregnancy, you might also need a lift.

Fat grafting to breasts

Fat transfer is a great alternative to breast implants for breast augmentation or reshaping of the breast.  Your question regarding timing is rather common.  You natural breast can or may change after pregnancy but it is rather unpredictable.  In some situation there is only minor changes.  The fat that is transferred will not change much given it is not breast tissue.  Discuss the timing and the procedure with your surgeon to get a better idea of the changes you might expect.
