How Does It Work?

Fat transfer breast is a minimally invasive procedure that uses liposuction techniques to extract fat cells from specific areas of your body, like the abdomen, thighs, hips, or buttocks, to inject it in the breast to enhance its size and shape. Before injecting the fat cells into the breast, the surgeon will purify the extracted fat. Almost 50% of the fat cells might not survive during the extracting stage.

We will ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide below to evaluate your case for your online consultation.

What Does Breast Fat Transfer Surgery Involve?

We will plan and arrange the procedure to suit your personal preferences and find the best breast fat transfer surgeons. There are a few primary steps involved in this procedure. Here is what you can expect: 

1. Anesthesia

Your surgeon might decide on general or local anesthesia depending on how many areas the fat is extracted. To make you feel comfortable during the surgery, you will need intravenous sedation.

2. Making the incisions

Once you are anesthetized, your surgeon will start the procedure by making small incisions in selected areas around the region to extract the fat cells. The incisions will be minimal; this also translates to minimal scarring.

3. Extracting the fat cells

After your surgeon makes the incisions, the next step is to extract the fat cells. They are using a medical tube known as the cannula. The surgeon will loosen the fat tissue by moving the cannula back and forth to remove the fat cells.

4. Fat injection

The surgeon will use a particular device to separate the fat cells from other liquids like blood. Then inject the fat cells into the breast using a fine needle.

5. Closing the incision 

After extracting the fat cells, your surgeon will suture the incisions and place temporary drain tubes underneath the skin to drain excess fluids. To minimize the risk of being infected.

What Should I Expect After Breast Fat Transfer Surgery?

  • You are required to rest for a couple of days after the surgery.
  • You should expect to have some swelling for a few days after the surgery.
  • You should take your medications in time to reduce swelling and prevent infections.
  • Even if the fat cells are removed permanently via liposuction, it would be best to adopt a healthy lifestyle since fat cells might begin to grow somewhere else in the body.
  • It might take up to six months for full results to appear as the injected fat may be reabsorbed by your body during the first few months.  


Does fat transfer last in breasts?

If everything goes well without complication, you can expect the results to last a lifetime.

Which is better breast fat transfer vs implants?

Breast fat transfer is ideal if you're looking for modest enhancement with minimal surgical invasiveness. But if you're looking to increase your breast volume by more than 1 cup size, breast implants could be a better option.  

How many cup sizes can you gain with fat transfer?

This depends on the amount of existing body fat you have. Typically you will gain an increase of 1 cup size in breast volume. And in some cases, an increase of 2 cup sizes in breast volume.

Is Breast Fat Transfer abroad affordable?

Some of the factors that affect the breast fat transfer abroad cost are the location of the clinics, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used. But in general, yes the procedure will cost less in popular medical tourism locations like Turkey because the cost of labor is cheaper.

    While doing a price search for plastic surgery in my own country, I came across flymedi and had my surgery at esteworld for a much more reasonable price and I am very happy. The team and flymedi were very professional.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
