At Elite Plastic Surgery, one of our most common procedures we perform is fat grafting also called autologous fat grafting to improve breast reconstruction and augmentation results. During fat grafting, fat cells are harvested from other parts of your body using liposuction and transferred to desired areas such as the breasts. The tissue is then processed into liquid and injected into the breast area to recreate the breast, increase size, or to fine tune the appearance of a reconstructed or augmented breast to provide the most natural appearance. Fat grafting can be combined with cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Cosmetic procedures include mastopexy (“breast lift”), breast reconstructions, breast augmentation with and without implants. Fat grafting can also be combined with autologous (using your own tissue) and implant based breast reconstruction.

Benefits of Fat Grafting:

  • It uses your own tissue instead of an implant.
  • Fat is removed from desired areas resulting in contour enhancement from where liposuction is performed.
  • Improvements in the superior portion of the breast to provide a more natural transition of the upper slope.
  • Improvements of the medial (or middle) portions of the breast to enhance cleavage.
  • Fine tune the appearance of the breast.


Fat grafting is an excellent option for natural small breast augmentation.  It involves harvesting and transferring fat cells from other parts of the body with excess fat to the breasts. Fat is harvested via standard liposuction technique and typically comes from the love handles, abdomen or hips.  This unwanted fat is then sterilized in the operating room by the plastic surgeon. The processed fat is then put into small syringes and safely injected into the breast tissue to improve the size of the breast and cleavage. This gives the upper pole fullness that is often lost after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Further, fat grafting does not only increase the size of your breasts, but also serves as a body contouring procedure as it removes unwanted fat for other parts of your body.


Good candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation or fat grafting are women who want shapelier breasts without having to go through surgery. Women who want to undergo breast fat grafting should be physically healthy, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and have excess fat in other areas of their body where our surgeons can harvest fat tissue.  It’s also important to manage your expectations as breast fat grafting is more appropriate for women who want a modest increase in breast volume with natural-looking results. Fat grafting alone cannot address breasts with too much sagging. You may however get fat grafting as a complementary procedure to a breast lift, breast augmentation with implants, or reconstruction after breast cancer.
