Breast Augmentation by Fat Transfer – Pros and Cons

Breast Augmentation by Fat Transfer – Pros and Cons

Considering Breast Augmentation Fat Transfer? Here are the pros and cons

Breast Augmentation Fat Transfer is fast becoming one of the most popular procedures for women who are looking to increase the size of their breasts without needing to have breast implants. 

Before undergoing any procedure, it is important to understand the pros and cons associated with the procedure:


The pros for undergoing a Breast Augmentation by Fat transfer include:

  • Natural Look – Since the procedure involves using the tissue from the patients own body, it allows for a 100% natural look.
  • Improved contours – Having a breast augmentation completed by fat transfer can not only change the look but also can improve the contours of the body.
  • Minimally Invasive – Unlike breast implants that require surgery, fat transfer involves taking fat from the thigh and hip area and injecting it into each breast. There is also minimal scarring, as only tiny incisions are used during the procedure.
  • Doesn’t affect breastfeeding – If the patient becomes pregnant after the procedure is completed, they are still able to breastfeed. The nipples will also retain their feeling of sensation.


The cons for undergoing a Breast Augmentation Fat transfer includes:

  • Multiple treatments may be required – since some of the fat can be absorbed by the body, multiple treatments may be needed to obtain desired results.
  • Not suitable for everyone – since fat is required to be taken from the thigh and hip region, patients with little or no excess fat are unable to undergo the treatment.
  • Increase in small volumes – Unlike other treatment options, a fat transfer can only increase the oversize of the breasts by up to ½ cup size.
