I have scheduled a Fat Graft Brest Augmentation...

I have scheduled a Fat Graft Brest Augmentation for next week but am having second thoughts about the procedure.

One of my concerns being the impact of the surgery on my body and the actual recovery from the lipo.

I have also been told that my breasts (although all my own tissue) will NEVER feel like 'my' breasts again.

Size has never been important to me I am just looking for a little fullness, this is something I have been thinking about on and off for 10 years but never wanted an implant.

I was very excited about the procedure but now I am considering postponing... I would appreciate any feedback particularly if you have had this procedure.

Post Op

I had the procedure done yesterday and so far I am thrilled with the results.
I know I will lose some volume but they do look amazing.

My Surgeon put 280cc's he said more than that affects the chances of the fat surviving.

The Lipo part is very painful but I think it will all be worth it in the end.

Day 4

Day 4 and doing well, the pain from the Lipo is still the worst part, movement is uncomfortable and difficult. Bruising on my legs and nerve damage will take a while to heal I'm sure and I am still very swollen in the harvested areas. I didn't use the BRAVA system. I have lost a little volume in my breasts as the swelling comes down, which is to be expected but have had almost no pain or bruising in my breasts. I hope the % of fat take will be good, I find it a little difficult being so careful and having to continue to be careful for the next 2 month, as I believe the less pressure on the breasts the better the chances of fat survival/take. Patience is definitely required for this kind of procedure. I do wish my PS had put a little more volume in as I don't think I would want to go through this all over again for more volume.
