Breast Augmentation With Fat

Breast Augmentation With Fat

The breast augmentation with fat, also known as augmentation mammoplasty with autologous fat, is the aesthetic procedure that, by cells obtained from the patient’s own fat from other areas of the body, can increase the size of the breasts and give them a more natural and proportional shape to the patient’s body.


Multiple motivations lead a woman to consider a breast augmentation surgery to improve their image.

Among them can be enhancement:
– Women are who are not completely satisfied with the size of their breasts due to the insufficient development of these ( agenesia / hypoplasia breast ).
– Resolve an asymmetry.

The breast augmentation with autologous fat has certain differences with the breast augmentation with implants.
– Provides an overall aesthetic improvement thanks to the body contouring liposculpture in the region where the fat is extracted to be used for breast augmentation.
– It does not allow large increases in volume in a single procedure.Fat cells (adipocytes) need good vascularization for their viability. Excessive volume lead to a more precarious vascularization of the upper layers, and therefore the loss of these cells. For large gains, the procedure is necessary to be done in several sessions.
– There is no incompatibility or rejection as the patient’s own tissue is used.
– The Lipostructure with fat has no effect on breast cancer or interfere with diagnostic tests such as mammograms.
– The recovery time is less.

First Visit

A personal visit is the first step for any woman who is thinking about a breast augmentation with fat.

Dr. Saez will ask about your general health and what your expectations are.

From an individualized evaluation Dr. Saez will explain the technique and the results that can be achieved by surgery.


The fat used for breast augmentation is obtained by liposuction with special cannulas from areas where more fatty tissue tends to accumulate in women, usually the abdomen and thighs.

Subsequently, fatty tissue obtained by liposuction undergoes a process of centrifugation to separate the fat cells (pure fat) from the other components.

Through a minimal breast incision in the groove, pure fat is inserted through a cannula specially designed for this procedure.

• This operation is usually performed under local anaesthesia and sedation on an outpatient basis (in other words, hospitalization is usually not necessary).
• The time of the operation is 60 to 80 minutes.

Post-op care

Although each person’s recovery is different, it is common to follow the next steps:

After the operation the usual stay at the clinic is 3 or 4 hours, at which time the patient can be discharged.

• It is advisable to rest with the chest slightly lifted. You should not manipulate the bandage that has been left.
• You will wear a compression garment to reduce inflammation and improve the adaptation of the skin.

• The Lipostructure is a procedure that usually does not make a big inconvenience. You can progressively start to work and return to normal activity in 3 or 4 days.
• The bandage will be removed after 3 or 4 days, and you will have to wear a special bra.

• In 7-8 days stitches will be removed.
• The swelling will decrease gradually.

• Inflammation will be reduced and you will start to see the final result more defined.
• You can use an everyday bras and stop using the compression garment.
• You can do more vigorous exercises.


This intervention provides a great improvement in body contouring, giving patients more fulfilment with their new image.

LThe results achieved are permanent. However, you must remember that your breasts and regions where liposculpture has been performed are not immune to the effects of fluctuations in weight or age.

It is advisable to take care of skin by moisturising, and make some physical exercise.
