Fat transfer breast augmentation represents a modern and natural approach to enhancing breast size and shape. Unlike traditional breast implants, this procedure utilises the body’s own fat cells to achieve subtle and personalized results.  

In this blog, we’ll explore fat transfer breast augmentation, including its process, benefits, and considerations.  

What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation: An Overview 

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a surgical technique used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts using the patient’s own fat cells. 

During the procedure, through liposuction, fat is suctioned from areas of the body where it is abundant, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. Following extraction, the fat is purified and processed before being meticulously injected into the breast region to achieve the desired shape and volume. 

Benefits of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation 

Fat transfer breast augmentation offers several potential benefits compared to traditional breast implants: 

  • Natural look and feel: Using the patient’s tissue results in a more natural appearance and texture than implants. 
  • Dual benefit: In addition to augmenting the breasts, fat transfer allows for body contouring through liposuction of donor areas. This can result in improved overall body proportions and symmetry. 
  • Minimal scarring: Small incisions for fat harvesting and injection points result in minimal scarring. 
  • Lower risk of complications: There is a reduced risk of certain complications associated with breast implants, such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, or implant-related infections. 

It’s important to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to evaluate if fat transfer breast augmentation is suitable for you, considering your aesthetic goals, medical history, and anatomy. 

Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation 

To be an ideal candidate for the procedure, you’ll need to:  

  • Be in overall good health. 
  • Be 18 years or older. 
  • Not smoke or can quit smoking weeks before the procedure. 
  • Just looking for a cup size increase in breast. 
  • Have enough available fat to achieve your desired results.  
  • Have enough breast volume to receive that fat. 
  • Don’t plan to get pregnant or lose weight in the future. 
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome. 

Before undergoing fat transfer breast augmentation, consult a board-certified plastic surgeon, who can evaluate your candidacy based on your individual circumstances and aesthetic goals. 

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure 

The breast augmentation through fat transfer procedure typically involves several steps: 

Consultation and Pre-Operative Preparation: 

The process begins with a consultation with a plastic surgeon, who will conduct a medical history evaluation, discuss your goals and expectations, and assess whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. 

You will also undergo a thorough pre-operative evaluation, which may include medical tests and measurements of the breasts and body areas from which fat will be harvested. 

During the Procedure: 

The fat transfer breast augmentation procedure is usually performed under anaesthesia to ensure the comfort and safety of the patient during the procedure. 

  • Fat Harvest: The surgeon will use liposuction techniques to extract fat from donor areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. Small incisions are made in the donor areas, and a thin cannula is used to suction out the fat.  
  • Purification: After harvesting, it is processed and purified using specialized techniques to prepare it for injection into the breasts. This involves centrifugation or filtration to separate the fat cells from other components, like blood and oil. 
  • Transfer and Injection: The purified fat is injected into the breasts using small, strategically placed incisions. The surgeon will carefully layer the fat within the tissue of the breasts to achieve the desired volume and contour. Multiple injections may be performed to ensure even distribution and optimal results. 

What to Expect: Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Recovery 

Here’s what you can generally expect during the fat transfer breast augmentation recovery process: 

  • Post-surgery, you will spend some time in the recovery area under observation. Once you are awake and stable, you will be allowed to return home. 
  • During the first few days after surgery, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, bruising, and mild to moderate pain in both the donor sites (where fat was harvested) and the breasts. Your surgeon will prescribe pain relievers to help manage any discomfort. 
  • You will be advised to avoid participating in strenuous activities for several weeks post-surgery. 
  • You will wear compression garments or a supportive bra to reduce swelling and provide support to the breasts and donor areas. 
  • Sleep on your back or side to avoid putting pressure on your breasts for at least the first month.  

By following these precautions and guidelines, you can promote a smooth and successful recovery from fat transfer breast augmentation and enjoy optimal results. 


Fat transfer breast augmentation offers long-term results, typically considered permanent. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is vital for sustaining these results.  

The transferred fat cells integrate into surrounding tissue and should remain stable for several years. It’s important to note that natural body changes and weight fluctuations can affect breast appearance over time.  

Protecting the breasts from environmental factors and attending regular follow-up appointments can help ensure sustained results. 

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Complications 

Fat transfer breast augmentation is safe, but like all surgery, it comes with potential risks:  

  • Infection 
  • Bleeding 
  • Persistent pain 
  • Formation of lumps or cysts in breasts 
  • Not obtaining the desired size or aesthetics 
  • Temporary or permanent changes in nipple sensation 

Discussing these risks and complications with a qualified surgeon is essential before undergoing fat transfer breast augmentation. Following pre-operative and post-operative instructions can also help mitigate these risks and optimise outcomes.

  • How soon will you see the final results from fat transfer breast augmentation? 

Final results from fat transfer breast augmentation typically become apparent within a few months as swelling resolves, with optimal outcomes usually visible around six months post-surgery. However, some subtle changes may continue to occur over time. 

  • Does fat transfer breast augmentation hurt? 

During fat transfer breast augmentation, you won’t experience pain as you’ll receive either local or general anaesthesia. However, you may feel sore in the weeks following the operation, but you’ll be given pain medication to help manage this. 

  • What is breast augmentation through fat transfer recovery time? 

Recovery from breast augmentation through fat transfer typically takes 1-2 weeks for initial healing, with full recovery and final results often achieved within 4-6 weeks.

I am an Italian woman and I would like to share my amazing experience with Dr. Faisal. When I decided to have my breast augmentation I visited several doctors, and I must say that every time I was more and more confused because I always received different advice and I felt a little lost. However, I decided to continue searching and found Dr. Faisal's profile on google, read some of his reviews and contacted him for a consultation. For the first time I really felt listened to, where I wasn't a "30 min visit" to sell the operation, but it was me as a person. Dr. Faisal asked me many questions to make me feel at ease and understand what my goals were (there was no time, he was just listening to me). I had finally left the studio happy, and sure he was the right surgeon. I want to clarify that I am a super sporty girl (I do running, CrossFit, kickboxing, tennis hiking), and also during the appointment, for me the most important aspect was to obtain a natural effect and be able to continue to do my sports activities as before. So I took a couple of weeks where every time I needed clarification he asked me to stop by the studio to explain me everything in detail! After my thousand dramas I decided the date of the operation :) it was a Friday. The day after I went out for a walk (Dr. please don't read, that I promised you I would be rested). On Monday I was already back to work and on Wednesday I could already drive. As for sport, I followed everything the Dr. advised me and after about 3 weeks I was back to running a bit. After about 5 weeks I was back to doing some weights. Now after 3 months I'm back to doing all my sports. I was already super happy with the result after the operation, now is absolutely incredible. I hope my experience can help other people because in addition to professionalism, he is a doctor who truly listens and cares about the person's happiness and I can't recommend him enough.

I highly recommend Dr Faisal to anyone thinking of undergoing surgery. I had a few consultations with other Drs but instantly i had a really good feeling when discussing everything with Dr Faisal. He really took the time to listen and understand exactly what I wanted to achieve. He reassured all the way through the process and made me feel so at ease. I had done extensive research (15 years) before I decided to do the surgery of Breast Augmentation. Dubai can be a minefield trying to find the right surgeon but he came highly recommended from many people and I now know why. I’m so happy with my results.

I had the best experience with Dr.Faisal for my 360 lypo surgery. Starting from my very first consultation in which he was very welcoming and open to listening to what I was looking to achieve. He really took my case with all care and professionalism, and I couldn’t be happier with what we achieved. Beyond his professional capabilities, his after care and support post operation has been second to none. I highly recommend Dr.Faisal to anyone who is looking to do any cosmetic work- minor or major in Dubai, there is no need to travel abroad looking for better doctors or prices ..etc. Dr.Faisal’s procedure and care have been the utmost best in class.

I decided to undergo lower eyelid surgery with Dr. Faisal Salim after many years of having a complex and I can truly say that it was one of the best choice I've made. Knowing Dr. Faisal for some years I had plenty of faith that he would do a great job. His care to detail, precision, and overall perfectionist that he is are what made me put my trust in him to perform my surgery and it shows as I'm highly happy with the result!

I am 27 yrs old and I had a desire of getting larger and proportionate breasts since my younger age. When I researched surgeons and was looking through many, many galleries of results, I wasn’t impressed by almost any of the doctor's work. After a long search, I came across the website of Dr. Faisal Salim, read his reviews, and looked at his results. I was so happy and just knew i had to do a consultation with him! I spoke with his clinic first on the phone and she gave me so much information even before booking a consultation with a doctor. From the first tele conversation, I was so impressed, and comfortable and felt that they cared about me as a patient. I went to my consultation where he explained every part of the procedure and answered all my questions. As we have a family history of breast cancer, Dr Faisal referred me to do an ultrasound mammogram, along with a health screening and tests to check i was a proper candidate for surgery. When I was cleared I had my surgery in October 2021, and have had many checkups with Dr. Faisal since he is very involved and wanting to make sure i have the best results. He and his team are better than I could have imagined. I have had a lot of friends, and even strangers ask me to know my doctor's name because they are wondering about my result. I recommend him to every female out there wanting the Best Results!!!

I had been thinking about getting a tummy tuck for years but I was so afraid of doing it. I had been searching for various surgeons because I knew it is an extensive surgery. But when I met Dr. Faisal Salim, I just knew he was the one I was searching for. After my first consultation with him, I got a confidence of doing tummy tuck surgery. It has been 6 months since my procedure and the result is amazing. He and his staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive and answered to all my questions in a positive way. I had a wonderful experience at his clinic, and his staffs were more caring. Thank you for your entire support and caring you had given me during my days in your clinic
