Breast augmentation with fat injection is often an alternative to breast augmentation with silicone prostheses. It is a reliable and accessible operation developed against the problems such as shape, volume, and symmetry of the breasts. It is often used in cases such as breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery or symmetrically synchronizing the two breasts. During this operation, the patient’s own fat tissues are used. It is a very safe operation since the person's own fat tissues are used, and it has no side effects or allergic effects. The decision will be made with your doctor about where and how much fat will be taken from the person. In cases where the amount of fat is insufficient or not preferred, it can be operated on in combination with a silicone prosthesis. This operation is called composite breast augmentation. The healing process is faster than the augmentation with silicon prosthesis surgery due to the healing effects of fat tissues.
Your general breast examination will be performed before the operation.
In this interview, your complaints about your breast, your expectations, and requests for the operation are listened to, after that, according to your expectations, the doctor will tell you the most suitable operation and how the operation will occur. Finally, you need to have the breast (mammography and/or breast ultrasound) scans examined by your doctor.
If you are in good health, have a positive attitude, and have realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider breast augmentation:
Breast augmentation with oil injection is performed in a hospital environment under general anesthesia.
The operation consists of 3 stages. In the first stage, fat tissues are taken to be injected into the breast from previously determined areas with the help of cannulas. The amount of fat taken is determined according to your excess fat accumulation. After the aspiration process, the removed fat tissues have become suitable for injection. Then, they are injected into the pre-operative areas with special nano fat injectors.
If you prefer the operation of the composite breast, the prosthesis is placed on the breast incision before injection, and then the fat injection takes place. The operation duration is approximately 1 hour.
The postoperative recovery process is shorter than a silicone prosthesis operation. You will be discharged on the same day hours after the operation without the need for hospitalization. You can return to your daily activities on the same day, with limited and careful care. There are two important factors affecting the healing process, smoking and listening carefully to your doctor. If you do not smoke after surgery, you will recover much faster. After about 5 days of resting at home, you can return to work.
Fillers (hyaluronic acid) can be injected into the breast for breast augmentation. These methods are not durable as the prosthesis, so they may need to be repeated. Often, the injection of fat into the breast is used to obtain a natural appearance with a little touch on different parts of the breast after prostheses and breast augmentation.
When it comes to the happiness of patients, breast augmentation takes first place, because the results of fat injection and breast enlargement are seen immediately and minimal pain is felt. More than half of the injected fat tissue is viable and permanent. A check appointment is given after 6 months to 1 year, and you will be evaluated by your doctor.
Patient should wear special corset and bra, also she must be careful with the operated site for approximately 20 days.
