The Benefit of Breast Fat Transfer Abroad 

Breast fat transfer costs less abroad than in the UK, USA, and Europe, but you need to find the right clinics and best surgeons to minimize potential risks. Breast fat transfer is an option for patients who want to enhance their breast size without opting for breast implants.

The surgeon will use the excess fat deposited in your body (thighs, abdomen, buttocks) and transfer it to your breast.

The doctors and surgeons abroad are well-trained in cosmetic surgeries and speak good English because most surgeons completed their training abroad in prestigious universities. Some of them are better than the surgeons in your local country and understand the expectation of international patients.  

There are other appeals to having Breast Fat Transfer abroad:

You can access more treatment options. 

Traveling abroad to get treated will open other possibilities or introduce a better, more effective treatment.

You can find excellent surgeons abroad.

Renowned clinics and hospitals with international accreditations have top-class surgeons. They are trained and have years of experience in breast fat transfer treatment. You can evaluate their experience based on the awards and credentials on their website or the clinic website.

Experience VIP service 

Some patients prefer an agency to plan their treatment abroad. It gives you relief to focus on your recovery. The agency will prepare a customized trip that fits your needs. The package will include flight, accommodation, and airport transfer.  

Breast fat transfer is cheap abroad. 

The affordability of breast fat transfer surgery abroad doesn't affect the quality of treatment. The surgeons have a similar experience as your native country's doctors, if not more. Cost is cheaper because the living expense in these countries is lower if you compare it to USA or UK.

Privacy for your medical choices 

Some patients want to keep their medical choices private, so seeking treatment abroad provides them more confidentiality. Medical tourism offers a solution to this problem; you can publicly announce you're going on holiday while seeking the treatment you desire.

Tips For Choosing The Best Breast Fat Transfer Clinic Abroad 

  • Book an online consultation. Most clinics or hospitals that work with international patients offer this service. 
  • Create a shortlist of possible clinics abroad:  research the clinic you plan to visit overseas. Most reputable clinics will have an official website, and you can examine the specialist's expertise, reviews, and credentials.  
  • Ask what's the follow-up steps after the surgery and aftercare procedure steps. 
  • Research the condition of the clinic before booking. It's recommended to visit the clinic before booking and finalizing the procedure. Talk to the staff and past patients if possible. 
  • Choose the right surgeon, do your due diligence, and enquire. 
  • Verify the surgeon's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how many times they performed the treatment. 
  • Plan your trip well, and give yourself time to rest after the treatment. 

Ideal Candidate for Breast Fat Transfer Abroad  

If you have sufficient fat in your body (hips, thighs, stomach, and buttocks), you're a suitable patient. You must be healthy and with a stable weight.

How Is The Surgery Performed?

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.

Breast Fat Transfer Recovery Time

The procedure is minimally invasive. You can expect a fast recovery; your recovery will take two weeks. After two weeks, you can start your routine, work, and house chores. But full recovery will differ from one patient to another and depends on many factors.

Some breast fat transfer side effects

  • Anesthesia risks

  • Avoid alcohol and other drugs that might affect anesthesia

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

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 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.
