Over the last few years, the use of fat grafting to the breast has been investigated extensively across the world. The technique involves gentle liposuction to obtain fat from one area of the body, typically the tummy or thighs, processing of this fat and then reinjection into the breast. Following an extensive investigation, this technique has now been authorised for use in the UK. Our medical director Mr Sivarajan has been involved in some of the initial research on this technique as part of a European trial.
This exciting new technique takes fat from one area and uses it to enlarge, improve or even uplift your breasts. There are some great advantages to fat transfer breast enlargement; it is entirely natural, so there is no foreign material within the body, you don’t need a general anaesthetic, and treatment results in a very natural look and feel to the enlarged breast. You also receive gentle liposuction where the excess fat is removed from, typically the tummy or thighs, so that area is improved too.
Treatment can be used to:
- Moderately increase the cup size of the breasts
- Correct a size discrepancy between the breasts
- Replace lost breast tissue after pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Restore and fill indentations and scars
