Contrary to popular belief, enhancing your curves does not always require the use of implants. Autologous fat transfer allows our patients to use their own body fat to enhance the breasts, face, or buttocks.

Since body fat is 100% natural, the results have a unique edge over implants in that they have an even more natural look and feel. While implants have an excellent safety profile, fat transfer reduces the risk of complications even further. Natural buttocks or breast augmentation with fat injections is a great choice for patients that wish to slim down one area while enhancing another part of the body.

How Does Fat Transfer Work?

Also known as fat grafting Dr. Otake’s fat transfer procedure involves fat removal from areas such as the abdomen, hips, saddlebags, thighs, or upper arms. Using the latest liposuction technology, excess fat is gently suctioned away to reveal a slimmer, more attractive physique. After liposuction is complete, the harvested fat will be purified to prepare it for injection.

Once the fat has been cleaned, Dr. Otake will place the fat in a cannula and carefully inject it into the area of your choice, usually the breast or buttocks, using an artistic eye to sculpt and shape a curvy, attractive figure. As a board-certified Connecticut plastic surgeon, Dr. Otake has extensive experience with liposuction and fat injection to provide our patients with beautiful results that look completely natural. Fat injections are great for a noticeable enhancement without any of the telltale signs of having “work done”.

Fat Transfer & Pregnancy

Our fat transfer is particularly effective for women with loose skin after pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, or weight loss. Since the skin is not too tight, there will be plenty of room around the fat cells so that the blood supply can easily reach them. With better nourishment by the blood supply, more of the fat graft will survive.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

The ideal fat transfer candidate is an individual that has reached their goal weight with a healthy diet and exercise program, but still has a bit of excess fat they would like removed with liposuction.

This patient is someone who desires a natural enhancement to augment their curves without the use of breast or buttocks implants. Fat injections are excellent for achieving a subtle, natural-looking breast augmentation or buttock augmentation. If you plan to have liposuction, a tummy tuckarm lift, or thigh lift, this provides a great opportunity to harvest fat for injection. Combining fat grafting with another procedure provides patients with two major benefits in just one surgery.

Am I Too Thin for Fat Transfer?

Thin patients may not have enough fat to harvest. The fat must come from your own body; It is not possible to harvest fat from another individual and then inject it into someone else. While breast fat injections appeal to women that want a bigger bust naturally, there is a caveat.

Small, tight breasts will compress the fat graft. Tight skin means the blood supply will have a hard time reaching the fat. Fat needs nourishment from the blood in order to stay alive. Without it, the fat graft will simply die, leaving the patient with little to no result.

Preparing for Fat Transfer

Patients should be in overall good physical health. Dr. Otake may ask questions about your relevant medical history to determine if you are a good candidate. It is also imperative to quit nicotine use at least 6 weeks before and after the procedure to facilitate healing. Women also must not be pregnant or breastfeeding at the time of the procedure.

Fat Grafting Gives Beautiful, Permanent Results

Implants are not lifetime devices. Whereas buttocks or breast implants will need to be replaced over the course of your lifetime, the fat grafting procedure does not require additional surgeries in the future. This is great news for women that are unwilling to undergo more than one or two additional surgeries for implant replacement in the future.

The fat that is injected consists of living cells. The cells graft onto the area that is enhanced, becoming part of the tissue. Once the fat is injected into the body part of your choice, the fat cells will continue living as long as they are nourished by the blood supply. Thus, proper injection technique is a must. The injections must be performed very carefully, without overcrowding, so the blood supply can reach the fat cells and keep them alive. Dr. Passaretti is highly experienced with breast and buttocks fat injections to ensure you get the best result.
