Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Where to Get Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation in Houston, TX
With advancements in plastic surgery, it is no longer necessary to use traditional silicone or saline implants to improve the appearance and volume of breasts. Fat transfer is intended for women seeking natural-appearing breasts with subtle cleavage who may be skeptical about foreign objects (implants) in their breasts. The procedure involves removing excess, unwanted fat from predetermined areas via liposuction and then injecting the purified donor fat cells (also known as microfat grafting technique) into the breasts to achieve a soft, natural shape and organic appearance. There are minimal incisions, so possible scarring is reduced. In Houston, Katy, and surrounding neighborhoods, patients choose and trust Dr. Ravi when they consider Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Consultation
During the initial consultation, Dr. Ravi will carefully gather all pertinent medical history. He prides himself on personally educating patients on various cosmetic surgery options to allow for a more informed decision-making process. Depending on your goals, a breast lift may be recommended as well. Dr. Ravi selects liposuction donor sites that will complement and highlight the renewed, overall look of the breasts. This selection process is individualized during the consultation with the goal of sculpting your body to achieve your ideal aesthetic. A candidate should have a stable body weight with enough fat for successful transfer and should be a non-smoker.
All patients will be seen approximately two weeks prior to surgery for their pre-operative appointments. At that time, surgical consents are signed, photos are taken, and patients are given an informational packet which includes detailed instructions for before and after surgery.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure
The Natural Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at a credentialed hospital with a board certified anesthesiologist. Dr. Ravi initially starts with liposuctioning unwanted fat from certain areas of the body. This fat is purified and then injected into multiple locations and planes of the breasts. The purified fat integrates into the body with hope for a long-lasting, potentially permanent, result. There is a small possibility that additional procedures will be needed to reach the goal cup size if enough fat tissue does not survive. Good donor areas are the back, abdomen, thighs and flanks. This will be individualized during the consultation with Dr. Ravi in order to sculpt your specific body.
Recovery time varies from person to person and is largely dependent on the fat donor sites being liposuctioned. There will be breast swelling with bruising and discomfort for several days. Patients spend one to two days resting and generally return to normal activities in one week. Strenuous activities should be avoided for three weeks. It is realistic to expect the breast to go up by one cup size per procedure, with final results to appear at three months. Liposuction can cause sagging of skin at donor sites which can be corrected once final healing occurs.
