not only have i heard of fat transfer to breasts, i actually had it done!
Do NOT do it! RUN, do not walk, from any doctor who will take your money for this procedure.
It is a HUGE waste of money and extremely dissapointing. The doctor told me how wonderfull and natural this would be. I paid thousands of dollars for this procedure, in addition to anesthisia costs, because i wanted something natural. I know have scars in my thighs and knees (where he went in to harvest fat from my thigh area to place into my breasts), I am thin, but i still have "holes" in my legs where he took out the fat from inside of my thigh (looks like big indentations in my legs) the scars he put are very visible while wearing underwear or bathing suit (i do not know why he didn't try to put the scares in less conspicuous places). My breasts were embarrassing HUGE from the swelling at first, the swelling went down and they looked great about 4 months after the procedure, but then 9 months later, it looks like i didn't have anything done! the fat dissapated and is gone. I could have put that money towards something permanent, like sub-muscular implants. This is ridiculous. My results are gone, but i am STILL paying my financial notes for this procedure. There should be a law that the results should at least last as long, or longer, than the financial notes. Do NOT get fat transfer to breasts girls! Save yourself the time, money and heartache.
A friend of mine had breast cancer and had the fat transfer done. She said the first time she had it done the fat was reabsorbed. She had it done again and in the 15 years that I have known her, she still has big C cups. She has a tiny spot on her thigh and on her tummy from where the fat was taken. This kind of procedure tends to get calcium deposits which are difficult to determine from suspicious lumps so instead of having biopsies she gets body scans. After seeing her, I wish I had opted for the fat transfer instead of implants. However, I found this interesting. My best friend used to handle dr malpractice insurance. Her company would cover implant drs but no fat transfers drs
I guess alot would depend on the dr who does it. Personally, if I were to do anything again, that would be the way I would go. However, I am done. Now that I am older I have some boobs and after having the implants removed and my silicone-filled breasts, my surgeon moved tissue up from my rib area to give me breasts.
My sister had this procedure done after her breast cancer because she was concerned about adding an implant to an area that had already been ravaged by cancer, and her results were excellent. It's been 5 years, there has been little to no reabsorption, and she has no visible scars or indentations from the areas where the fat was removed. Finding a physician who really knows what he/she is doing is critically important - she flew to New Orleans to see a specialist who is an expert in this procedure - and I will tell you that the post-operative recovery is supposed to be much worse than with a standard implant because you've got two significant areas where invasive surgery was performed.
Hi, I don't know if you are allowed to post the name of the fat transfer doctor but I would LOVE to know as I am not that far from New Orleans. Is there anyway for me to get this information. Thank=you Sophie
