Fat transfer breast augmentation is a less invasive method that can increase breast size by up to one size. The most frequent application involves filling in the upper part of the breasts to create a fuller décolletage. During the procedure a certain amount of fat tissue (approx. 600 ml) is removed via liposuction, cleaned in a special device and applied to the breasts. This method does not replace breast augmentation with implants. Only a limited amount of fat can be transferred using this method, because the surrounding tissues must be well perfused for the fat to incorporate into its new location. Since transferred fat tissue has a tendency to re-absorb partially after the first treatment, the procedure is usually repeated twice. Then the breast augmentation is permanent. Fat cells will not form again in the area where the fat was removed, giving patients a double effect of body contouring through liposuction and breast augmentation. This method can be repeated three months after the first application at the earliest.
