Can a Breast Augmentation Be Done With Fat From Liposuction?

I have heard that a breast augmentation can be performed with fat from your own body. Is this done by removing fat with liposuction and then injecting it back into your breasts? I assume you have to have a certain amount of excess fat? How successful is this procedure and how much does it cost? Thanks.

Hi, yes breast augmentation can be done with fat from your own body.  It works best for smaller volumes, but larger volumes can be done in more than one procedure.  There are advantages and disadvantages of doing breast augmentation this way instead of with implants, and your PS can clearly discuss these with you when you go for your in-person consultation.  Best of luck!

Thank you for the question and your breasts can be enhanced with fat obtained via liposuction but one cannot transfer a lot of fat at once as it will not take.  So it may require more then one procedure to gain the desired volume

You can do fat grafting to the breast to augment the breasts.  This can provide a modest improvement in size but will not have a dramatic a result as implant based augmentation.
