Fat grafting to the breast consists of two procedures performed on the same day: first harvesting the fat and then placement into the breasts. To begin, a substantial amount of fat is removed with a fine harvesting cannula connected to a small syringe. Then, the harvested fat is injected meticulously through four tiny 2-4 mm incisions using blunt infiltration cannulas. This is also called Lipostructure, Fat Transfer, Fat Grafting , Lipofilling, or Structural Fat Grafting.
This technique is able to create a long-lasting and natural result anywhere in the body.
However, a second method of rejuvenation has just recently become apparent. Fat has the highest concentration of repair (stem) cells of any tissue in the body. Placing fat full of stem cells under a damaged skin where there is little fat may have a repair effect on the skin. Such a repair effect can reverse the damage to the skin caused by aging and sun exposure.
This typically takes four hours for this procedure. The fragile fatty tissue must be harvested slowly and gently. The fat is then placed into the breast, buttock or face not only so that it will create as aesthetic, natural appearance, but also so that the newly transplanted fat has a chance to survive. This is by injecting the fat into many different layers, so that each layer has its own blood supply.
The results of this particular procedure may be unpredictable. The reason is that much of the injected fat is absorbed, leaving an average of about 40 percent in place. Patients may require more than one treatment to achieve the best results. Each time the procedure is repeated, more fat is accumulated in the treated area. This tends to offer longer-lasting results, even lifetime results.
The most common, but infrequent, complications of fat transfers include uneven skin texture, infection, abscess, or scarring. If fat is injected into two or more areas, patients may have asymmetry whereby the fat appears uneven in different areas. Treatment for complications can range from oral medications to surgical intervention, depending upon the extent of the complication.
Only small quantities are transplanted at a time because the fat cells need to develop their own blood supply or they will die. If larger quantities are transplanted , the following may occur : If too much fat is injected , large sacs of dead tissue (necrotic cysts or abcess) can form which must be removed by reoperation and a saline or other prosthetic implant may be needed to restore the original shape of the breast.
