Fat transfer breast enlargement.

Why is it not a good idea to have fat transfer to your breasts if you're planning on having a baby in the 12 months following?

Fat transfer before or after pregnancy

Thanks for your great question.  The reason is because breast size, shape, and volume can all change after pregnancy.  This is why you may want to wait.

Breasts do tend to change with pregnancy, and you may want to wait until after pregnancy.

Natural breast augmentation with fat grafting

I appreciate your question

I perform a natural breast augmentation with fat. This can be removed from any unwanted areas including the breast itself as part of my lipo-lift procedure. I perform the fat grafting in multiple planes including under the muscle to give the best, most natural enhancement. Fat grafting is a great solution for someone who wants to bring their breast size up a cup or so and use natural tissue vs an implant. However, it can also be combined with an implant or used as a secondary procedure to fill in areas that are flat or thin. It does not affect mammograms or breast feeding. It can be a little lump or hard at first but tends to soften over time.

Its best to have this done after having children if its going t happen soon since your beasts will change.

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 breast plastic surgery.

 

Best of luck!
