Fat Grafting Surgery In Austin, Texas
Women who desire a small enhancement or specifically want the most natural approach to breast augmentation, often choose breast fat grafting as the solution. Dr. Haydon and his trusted team at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute & Skin Care Clinic have performed fat grafting on numerous patients, offering a small enhancement to the breasts while simultaneously reducing fat tissue in another part of the body. In essence, liposuction is done from one area and the fat is saved. It is then carefully processed and injected into the breasts to create the best shape possible.
What Is Breast Fat Grafting?
Unlike other breast augmentation procedures, fat grafting utilizes your own fat and does not call for a foreign object to be placed in the body. Without an implant, your body foregoes the possibility of capsular contracture and other rare complications like leaking or rupture.
Rather than inserting a silicone or saline implant, Dr. Haydon removes fat from one part of your body and injects it into the breasts. Dr. Haydon will first perform liposuction, to retrieve the fat needed for the augmentation. The most common source of fat for the grafting procedure is the abdomen and flanks. During your initial consultation with Dr. Haydon, you will discuss the best option for the fat removal process. Certain medical conditions or past surgeries may make one area of your body a better choice than others, so be sure to disclose your entire medical history to the Austin Plastic Surgery Institute team.
Once the fat has been removed, it is then injected into the breasts. Depending on the breast size desired, you may need two sessions of injections to complete the process and optimize your result. It’s important to note that up to 50% of the fat injected into the breast might be absorbed by the body
