Are you considering enhancing your breast size, but find the idea of implants daunting? If saline and silicone gel aren’t your preferred options, a fat transfer breast augmentation (FTBA) might be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Unlike traditional breast augmentation methods, FTBA utilizes the body’s own fat tissue to enhance size and shape, eliminating the need for implants or foreign materials. Typically, one can expect a modest one-cup size increase with this technique, though the procedure can be repeated for those desiring larger sizes.

The process involves liposuction from donor areas like the thighs or abdomen, with the harvested fat then injected into the breasts to enhance volume, symmetry, and contour. Given the rising popularity of both liposuction and breast augmentations, FTBA has gained traction as a viable and implant-free alternative.

Benefits of FTBA include the elimination of additional risks associated with implants, contouring of other body areas through liposuction, a more natural appearance, and a one-time procedure with lifelong results. Physically, the breasts feel more natural compared to implant-based augmentations.

Preparing for FTBA involves finding the right doctor, and Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery is here to provide you with top-notch care and service from your consultation to your post-op. After having a FTBA procedure,  post-surgery patients will be advised to wear a specialized bra for six weeks, with the understanding that it may take six months to a year to see final results as some of the fat gets reabsorbed.

A FTBA offers a natural alternative to traditional implants, with fewer side effects and enhanced safety. If you’re considering a fat transfer breast augmentation, consult with Dr. J.J. Wendel today to explore all options and see if this is the right procedure for your desired results.
