Breast augmentation can be performed by fat transfer into the breast. In order to perform fat transfer into the breast shape, fat cells are harvested from a different area of the body and then these fats are prepared and transferred into the breast. While some of the transferred fat melts and disappears over time, some of them live here and become permanent. With fat transfer to the breast, breast augmentation cannot be achieved as large as it is the case with breast implants. Fat transfer may be a good option for people who want a smaller volume increase or who desire a more natural appearance.

What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation surgery is a surgery recommended for people who are not satisfied with breast volume but do not consider breast prosthesis.

In this procedure, fat cells harvested from an area of the body with excess fat is transferred. Firstly, it should be decided from where the fat cells will be harvested from the patient. After determining the areas to harvest fat cells, how much fat cells will be harvested should be planned. The fat is made ready for transfer in an enclosed system without contact with air.

Afterwards, fat transfer is performed in both breast shapes. In breast fat transfer surgeries, there is no scarring except for the incisions made for fat cells harvesting. Fat harvesting incisions are approximately 0.5 cm in size. Over time, the scars on these incisions disappear.

You can find detailed information about the operation and organisation before you come to Türkiye. You can contact your sales representative for any other questions you may have.

Yes, breast fat injection is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon in a reputable clinic or hospital setting.

Good candidates for breast fat injection are individuals who desire a modest increase in breast size, have sufficient donor fat available for transfer, and are in good overall health.

Benefits include natural-looking results, minimal scarring, simultaneous body contouring through liposuction, and potentially long-lasting outcomes.

Risks may include infection, fat necrosis, asymmetry, and changes in breast sensation. However, serious complications are rare when performed by a skilled surgeon.

The duration of the procedure varies depending on the extent of liposuction and the amount of fat transfer required but typically ranges from 1 to 3 hours.

Discomfort during and after the procedure is usually minimal and can be managed with pain medication prescribed by the surgeon.

Recovery involves some bruising, swelling, and discomfort, which gradually subside over a few weeks. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and wear a supportive bra during the initial healing phase.

Some patients may require multiple sessions spaced several months apart to achieve their desired breast size and shape.

While some fat may be reabsorbed by the body, the remaining fat cells typically establish a blood supply and become permanent. However, maintaining a stable weight is essential for long-term results.

Yes, breast fat injection can help improve breast asymmetry by adding volume to one breast to match the size of the other.

Breast fat injection should not interfere with mammograms or breast cancer screening. However, it's essential to inform the radiologist about the procedure to ensure accurate interpretation.

Yes, breast fat injection can be combined with procedures such as breast lift (mastopexy) or breast augmentation with implants for enhanced results.

While some immediate enhancement is noticeable, final results may take several months as swelling subsides, and the injected fat settles into place.

Your surgeon may recommend avoiding certain medications and supplements that can increase bleeding risk before surgery. Afterward, maintaining a healthy diet can support optimal healing.

Fluctuations in weight can affect the appearance of the breasts. It's advisable to maintain a stable weight to preserve the results of breast fat injection.

Our doctor's advice on the operation

Explore the operation further

Breast fat injection in Turkey offers a safe and effective solution for those seeking natural breast augmentation or enhancement. This procedure, also known as autologous fat transfer, involves transferring fat from one area of the body, typically the abdomen or thighs, to the breasts to increase volume and improve shape. Patients benefit from the combination of affordable prices, high-quality medical care, and the opportunity to enjoy the rich culture and hospitality Turkey has to offer. Whether for cosmetic reasons or reconstruction following mastectomy, breast fat injection provides a minimally invasive option with long-lasting, natural-looking results.

What Is Breast Fat Injection?

Breast fat injection involves the transfer of fat tissue from another part of the body to the breast tissue. This procedure is used for breast augmentation or shaping and is typically performed as part of breast aesthetic surgeries. Fat injection offers a natural alternative to increase breast volume or improve breast contour without the use of breast implants. Since the patient's fat tissue is used in this procedure, the risk of tissue rejection is low, resulting in more natural and long-lasting results.

Why Should You Get Your Breast Fat Injection In Turkey?

  • Cost: Breast fat injection in Turkey is more affordable than in many Western countries without compromising the quality of the operation.
  • Qualified Surgeons: Turkey has well-trained and qualified plastic surgeons who have received education and training from reputable institutions.
  • Modern Facilities: Many private clinics and hospitals such as TrustMed in Turkey are equipped with modern facilities and adhere to international standards.
  • Privacy: You may prefer to undergo your breast fat injection in Turkey, away from your local community for added privacy. Turkey offers a degree of anonymity for individuals seeking cosmetic surgery.

Are You A Good Candidate For Breast Fat Injection?

You are a good candidate for breast fat injection if you:

  • are not pleased with your current body contour,
  • stopped breastfeeding at least a year ago,
  • have no problem in the examination of your breast tissue with imaging methods (mammography, breast USG),
  • are determined to undergo cosmetic surgeries to have your desired body.

Preoperative Preparation and Operation Process

Breast fat injection is typically performed as a surgical procedure and involves the following steps:

  • Fat Harvesting (Liposuction): Initially, the necessary fat tissue for fat injection is harvested from another area of the body, typically the abdomen, hips, or thighs, using liposuction. This step is used to obtain the fat tissue required for the procedure.
  • Fat Preparation: The harvested fat tissue is processed and prepared through a specialized procedure. This involves separating and cleaning the fat from its pure cells, making it ready for injection.
  • Injection: The prepared fat tissue is then injected into the breast tissue using a thin cannula or syringe. Injections are administered evenly across different areas of the breast tissue according to the need.

Final Check-Up and Recovery: After the injection procedure, final checks are conducted to ensure the symmetry of the breast tissue and achieve the desired appearance. The recovery process begins, and the patient is instructed to follow recommended guidelines to complete the healing process.
