What to know about breast augmentation with fat injection. The following statements for those who want to have breast augmentation with fat injection:

What is fat injection?

– Fat injection, also known as fat transfer, is the process of transporting fat tissue located in one area of an individual’s own body to another area. Fat required for fat injection is taken from another part of the individual’s body with a liposuction probe. The collected fat is prepared for transfer to another part of the body. Fat to be used in the fat injection process is usually taken from the abdomen, waist and buttocks.

What are the benefits of breast augmentation with fat injection?

– Natural breast augmentation is an alternative to breast implants, a procedure performed by fat injection. In addition to the absence of natural substances or substances, the benefits of breast augmentation with fat injection can be listed as follows;

1. Very small traces remain in the area where the oil was taken for injection

2. Shorter recovery time compared to traditional breast augmentation operations

3. Less risks and problems in terms of cosmetics and healing process

Who is breast augmentation with fat injection suitable for?

– The person’s skin flexibility and tone should be good. Fat injection only enlarges the breast height; it does not correct stretched, saggy skin and breast tissue. People with saggy breast tissue are also suitable for this procedure, but a breast lift may be necessary.

– A person’s body must have enough adipose tissue for the fat injection process. For example, there is a higher fat requirement for breast augmentation with fat injection than for face fat injection. For this reason, fat can be taken from not only one area of the body but also from several different areas to achieve the ideal result.

How is breast augmentation performed with fat injection?

– For the procedure, fat is collected from a certain area of the body or from different parts of the body with a liposuction probe, and the collected fat is carefully injected into the breast area. Even in individuals with low body fat, this process is performed quite successfully. After this process, fat grows in the tissue matrix, and breast augmentation also occurs naturally.

– As a result of this procedure, which is performed using the individual’s own body fat, visible growth occurs in the breast area with eyes. This procedure is also a very ideal method for women who are new mothers to enlarge the shrinking breast area after birth. Regional slimming also occurs thanks to fat injection. Before breast augmentation with fat injection, the person should be examined by a doctor who specializes in their field.

– There are also different options for people with implants, capsule contracture and rippling problems. The Implant can be removed and fat injection ensures that the breast area has a more natural appearance than the implant. Breast lift is recommended for some people.

How long does breast augmentation with fat injection take?

– Breast augmentation with fat injection has two stages. The first stage is the removal of fat from one or more areas of the body, and the second stage is the injection of fat tissue into the breast area. This process takes about 2 to 4 hours.

How long does breast augmentation with fat injection last?

– After breast augmentation with fat injection, some fat cells are expected to die. But this rate is quite low. Fat cells injected into the breast area remain here indefinitely. All injected fat cells can grow or shrink more than the weight of the person’s body. For example, if you lose weight after breast augmentation with fat injection, the breast size may also decrease. Breast size can grow if you gain weight. Factors such as age and gravity can also lead to factors such as sagging. In such a case, a breast lift can be performed.

Healing process after breast augmentation with fat injection

– People who grow breasts with this application say that the healing process is quite fast, contrary to their expectations. After 1 to 2 days after the procedure, the person can return to their daily routine. After the procedure, swelling, pain, and in some cases bruises may occur in the areas where fat is taken and injected.

Breast augmentation with fat injection is a painful procedure?

– Breast augmentation with fat injection is performed by anesthesia, and therefore the person does not feel pain.

Is breast augmentation safe with fat injection?

– Breast augmentation with fat injection is a very reliable procedure. But this procedure must be performed by doctors who specialize in this field.

Risks of breast augmentation with fat injection

– Infection and bleeding are the main risks in all surgical procedures. Liposuction is applied during breast augmentation with fat injection. If it is not performed by experts in the field, this procedure can lead to a defective appearance in the body.
