For some women, the idea of getting breast implants is unappealing. For those who don’t want implants, but are still looking for ways to enhance their breasts, a breast enhancement using fat transfer can be an appealing choice.
Rather than using an implant, the body’s own fat is taken from the hips, thighs, or tummy using liposuction, purified, and then carefully injected into the breast. This produces an enhancement that looks and feels natural.
works best for those who want a mild to moderate increase in breast size and would like to avoid having implants.
Fat transfer to the breast is recommended for those who want a more natural-looking breast augmentation. Suitable patients will have enough fat from other parts of the body to transfer, are not considering having children within the next year and do not require a breast uplift too.
All fat transfer procedures are performed by Mr Olivier Amar as day surgery. Fat transfer surgery is performed under total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA), a technique of anaesthesia which uses a combination of agents given exclusively via the intravenous route without the use of gas anaesthesia. This means you will sleep comfortably throughout the procedure and wake immediately afterwards with a significantly reduced likelihood of feeling groggy or nauseous. The anaesthesia will be explained to you by your anaesthetist during the preoperative consultation. Having surgery under TIVA allows you to go home the same day to rest and recuperate in comfort. Mr Olivier Amar’s practice is happy to arrange the procedure at a hospital with an overnight stay facility if you wish or assist with a nurse to stay with you overnight, as well as helping you find local accommodation after your surgery if necessary.
