For many years, some women have longed for more shapely breasts or buttocks but didn’t like the idea of getting implants. Dr. Mel and the team at Sierra Ridge Cosmetic Surgery offer an innovative solution with a procedure called autologous fat transfer.
During a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Mel or a member of his team uses liposuction or VASERlipo® to remove excess fat from one area of your body. Then, they inject that fat into your breasts or buttocks. Because the fat comes from your body, there’s minimal risk of complications.
Fat transfer offers a double benefit to women who want to reduce the amount of fat in one area of their body while adding on to another. Common areas to remove fat from include:
The best spot to remove fat from varies depending on your unique body composition and aesthetic goals. Dr. Mel or a member of his team recommends the ideal place to subtract fat from during your initial consultation.
A fat transfer breast augmentation is a great option for women who seek a relatively small increase in breast volume with natural-looking results. Your body can only support a limited amount of transferred fat without its own blood supply to sustain it. This means breast enlargement is usually limited to one cup size.
Fat transfers also provide little to no lift for women who have sagging breasts. If you have sagging breasts and want to avoid implants, you may want to consider a breast lift along with your fat transfer procedure.
Also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, a fat transfer butt augmentation creates a rounder bottom with excess fat from another area. A Brazilian Butt Lift improves the shape of your backside in two ways: by recontouring surrounding areas to enhance buttock definition and by increasing tissue volume in your butt.
Dr. Mel or a member of his team carefully evaluates your body composition and listens to your personal preferences to recommend the best area to remove fat from. The abdomen and love handles are particularly common areas because sculpting a smaller waist naturally accentuates your curvy hips and butt.
