The Downsides to Breast Fat Transfer

Breast fat transfer (also known as autologous augmentation) may be a good choice for some patients, but there can be significant downsides to this procedure that may make it unappealing for others.

One major disadvantage is that there’s no one standardized approach to performing the breast fat transfer procedure. As a result, there can be little information out there as to how a patient can expect her breast fat transfer to be performed, as it truly comes down to each plastic surgeon’s own preference and training.

Another downside is that breast fat transfer surgery requires a tissue expansion system to make room for the patient’s fat tissue. Essentially, the patient will be required to wear an expander for up to three months, which can be an uncomfortable and potentially difficult routine to follow for patients with busy lifestyles.

Finally, breast fat transfer procedures usually only result in the patient’s breasts increasing by a single cup size. That means if you want to enhance your bust by a couple of cup sizes, you won’t get the results you’re looking for from a breast fat transfer.

Add to the fact that the results can be difficult to control (some fat is naturally reabsorbed after the surgery), and it’s clear that breast augmentation with an implant is better than breast fat transfer.

Why Dr. Vitolo Prefers Breast Surgery to Breast Fat Transfer

Dr. Vitolo has used his decades of experience to create breast surgery approaches that ensure each patient gets the personalized care and attention they deserve. Additionally, Dr. Vitolo exclusively uses the scar less breast augmentation technique, making him one of the few plastic surgeons in the world to do so. 

This technique involves placing A ½ inch incision in the belly button – your natural scar – and creating two channels under the breast tissue or muscle. Deflated implants are inserted through these channels, positioned, and then filled with a saline solution. This entire procedure takes 30 minutes, and recovery is one day! 

The end result? Fantastic augmentation without scars, expanders, or unpredictable results!

“I just had breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Vitolo. I want to express my deepest gratitude to him and his team. They treated me so well. The staff is very comforting and exceptionally nice. I highly recommend this doctor.” *
