Fat Grafting FAQs

Are the results of fat transfer long lasting?


Fat that is transferred and taken is permanent. However, not all fat will take. Some is reabsorbed by the body. By 6 months, you should see your final result of what fat has taken.

Is fat grafting to the breasts a more natural approach than a breast augmentation?


Fat grafting to the breasts looks and feels natural to touch. You can also get natural-looking results with a breast augmentation, so it is always best to discuss your aesthetic goals in detail with your surgeon to make sure you get the results you desire. 

Can I gain more than two cup sizes with a fat graft to the breasts?


If you are looking to gain more than a half cup size, a breast augmentation using silicone or saline implants may be the route that is recommended for you to take due to the limited amount of fat you have available to utilize from other parts of your body.
