The Procedure

Dr. Hasen’s fat transfer breast enhancement protocol is based on the research and teachings of Dr. Roger Khouri from Miami, who is renowned for his success with these procedures. Because fat transfer requires fat cells to be removed from one area of the body (usually the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks), the first step in the surgical process is liposuction, which we can perform using our Smartlipo® technology.

Fat Purification

Once the fat is collected via liposuction, Dr. Hasen uses the Sientra Viality™ fat purification device to enhance the fat’s survivability during the transfer. Viality is an innovative technology that allows Dr. Hasen to filter and purify the patient’s fat, eliminating unwanted substances and excess fluids. The result is pure, high-quality fat that is ideal for transfer.

Fat Transfer

Once the fat is purified, Dr. Hasen carefully injects it into the breasts. However, after all fat transfer procedures, either for the breasts, buttocks, or facial enhancement, some of the fat that is injected gets naturally absorbed by the body rather than staying in place.

To prevent this absorption during breast reconstruction and to encourage more of the fat to “take,” Dr. Hasen has his patients use the BRAVA® system, a special bra that places sustained tension on the breasts to encourage circulation and tissue expansion.

Multi-Staged Approach

After wearing the BRAVA system bra for several weeks, patients return for a second round of fat transfer around 3 months after the prior treatment and sometimes a third after a few more months depending on their results. This multi-staged procedure allows Dr. Hasen to achieve beautiful, natural-looking contours as the breasts heal and fat settles over time.

The Recovery

Generally, the donor sites where the fat is taken from will heal just like regular liposuction sites. There may be some temporary swelling or bruising at the recipient sites in the breasts, but there is typically only minimal discomfort. It’s important to avoid sleeping on your stomach for the first 4 weeks after surgery. Patients usually feel well enough to return to most regular activities after 1 to 2 weeks and can resume exercise or more strenuous activities slowly thereafter.

The Result

With each round of fat transfer, a patient’s results improve. One of the most significant benefits of fat transfer breast enhancement is how natural the results look and feel.

Commonly Combined Procedures

Often, you can safely combine your fat transfer breast augmentation with other surgeries or medical spa procedures.

On the surgical side, many patients also choose to get a breast lift to address excess skin or sagging breasts and nipples. Other patients combine their breast enhancement with a tummy tuck as part of a more extensive mommy makeover.

If you want to enhance your fat transfer results after surgery, you may be interested in body contouring options such as CoolSculpting® or EMSCULPT Neo®.
