Breast lipofilling: breast augmentation by fat transfer


What is breast lipofilling?

Breast lipofilling, also called breast fat transfer or breast fat grafting, is a cosmetic mammoplasty technique that has recently gained popularity and is increasingly used in breast plastic surgery. Concerns had already been expressed about its safety when used for breast remodelling. However, these concerns have been ruled out.

Over the last two decades, little evidence has been found to confirm these theoretical concerns, and a growing number of proponents of technology have confidence in its security. Numerous developments and improvements in the method have taken place in recent years and several studies have been published concerning the safety of breast lipofilling.

Breast fat transfer surgery combines the technique of liposuction with breast augmentation by fat injection, where your own fat is reinjected to increase the volume of your breasts. The reinjected fat comes from natural fat taken from your abdomen, thighs, and back.

How is breast lipofilling performed?

The breast lipofilling surgery consists of the following steps:

  • The surgeon performs a liposuction from areas where there are natural reserves of fat (abdomen, back, hips, etc.).
  • The specialist performs purification of fat by centrifugation in order to extract the good quality fat cells.
  • After making micro-incisions under the breasts, the specialist injects the fat into the breast area to fill through a cannula.
  • Finally, the surgeon closes the incisions using dissolvable stitches and places a bandage on the sutures.
  • The permanent wearing of a special bra is mandatory for 2 months.


Scars of a fat transfer breast augmentation

Breast augmentation without implant scars will be minimal and, in most cases, invisible.


The post-operative stage of breast lipofilling

After your breast lipostructure, you can expect:

– Oedema and bruising mild to moderate in the breasts and the fat extraction areas

– Mild to moderate pain that can be relieved by common analgesic medications.

– A temporary loss of sensitivity in the nipples or breasts that will disappear over the days.

Results and outcome of breast fat transfer surgery

Once the dressings are removed, the patient can already observe the results.

However, it’s necessary to wait 2 to 3 months to see the primary breast lipofilling result and it is towards the end of the fourth month that the final results can be fully seen. This delay is necessary for the scars to mature and be non-perceptible.

Breastfeeding after breast lipofilling surgery is possible. However, the patient should talk to the surgeon during the preoperative consultations so that he can make the necessary arrangements.

Advice before and after breast lipofilling

Before breast lipofilling surgery:

  • Make a list of questions that you think are ambiguous to ask the surgeon during the pre- and post-operative consultations. This will allow you to understand the progress of the operation and the complications that may arise.
  • Stop smoking at least 15 days before surgery to reduce the risk of necrosis.
  • Discontinue oral contraceptive use at least one month before surgery to reduce thromboembolic risk
  • Stop taking certain medications (aspirin, anti-inflammatories, oral anticoagulants, etc.) and any medication not prescribed by a doctor and any type of drug, at least 2 weeks before breast lipofilling to reduce the risk of haemorrhage and anaesthetic complications.
  • Stop alcoholic drinks consumption one week before and one week after the operation
  • Allow a sufficient period of professional unavailability after the operation.
  • Fasting for 8 hours before the breast lipofilling surgery


 After breast lipofilling surgery

  • Lie on your back to avoid pain
  • Adopt a healthy lifestyle to maximize results.
  • Resume physical effort and sports activity in a progressive way and this after three months.
  • Massage gently the scars with a moisturizer.
