What is Fat Injection to Breasts?
Fat injection to breasts is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that takes fat from another part of the body. Fat is removed from the donor area with the help of liposuction, and transferred to the breasts as fat grafts. As the fat is harvested from the patient’s own body, fat grafting uses 100% natural autologous filler. The grafted fat then needs to find blood supply in order to survive. Typically, around 30% to 50% of grafted fat successfully survives and natural and long-lasting results are achieved.
You are an ideal candidate for fat injection to breasts if you:
Want volume in your breasts without implants
Would like to improve your breast symmetry
Wish to improve your confidence
Are healthy and at a stable weight
You have done your research on the procedure
You might experience some bruising and discomfort around the donor area and some level of tightness and skin redness around the injected area. You may feel like the treated area is over-filled but that is to ensure satisfying results once the swelling goes down. There is no need for a hospital stay. You may resume all activities right after the procedure but it is generally advised that you avoid strenuous activities for the first 48 hours to minimize swelling and discomfort.
As the Voila health care team, we will ensure that you have gone through all the necessary health checkups before your surgery, and always be there for you during recovery to ensure you feel your best the whole time.
Aftercare is as important as the surgery itself when it comes to boosting the effects of the procedure.
Make sure you keep yourself propped up with multiple pillows while lying down or sleeping.
Swelling is expected but it will start to go down after day 2 and 3, which are the most challenging. If necessary, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers.
Patience is key. A better you is on the way!
