Informative Facts on Fat Grafting

Do you feel satisfied with the size of your breasts or contours of your body? Fortunately, for those who do not, your appearance can be improved thanks to modern medicine. With a professional autologous fat transfer conducted alongside breast reconstruction, you can achieve more fullness or conceal the edges of an implant or implant rippling. When seeking this procedure to achieve your body goals, it would help if you partner with the right specialist for the best possible results. If you live in or near East Windsor fat grafting specialist, Matthew J. Lynch, MD, can help determine if you would be a good candidate to benefit from this innovative procedure.

What Is A Fat Grafting Procedure?

Fat grafting, also known as autologous fat transfer, refers to a surgical treatment which aims to improve your breast contours with your own body fat during a breast reconstruction surgery. You may qualify for fat grafting after the extraction of your breast during a partial or full mastectomy.

Dr. Lynch might recommend fat grafting alongside other reconstruction procedures, such as a flap reconstruction or breast implant. Additionally, you may also qualify for fat grafting after radiation therapy for breast cancer to correct breast changes that arise from your treatment.

What Happens During Fat Grafting?

You will receive a general anesthesia during your fat grafting treatment to give you a comfortable treatment experience. Your provider will extract fat from another part of your body, usually your abdomen or thigh, by using liposuction technology. He/She then prepares the fat before reinjecting it into the target areas to reconstruct your breast. Dr. Lynch always strives to create the most natural-looking breasts possible.

Since the procedure’s success depends on your breast area’s blood supply, you may require more than one graft procedure to attain optimal results. You may also require multiple fat grafting treatments if you seek to increase your breast size and fullness.

Why Should I Consider Fat Grafting?

A fundamental benefit of fat grafting in your breast reconstruction is the merit of using your own tissue to rebuild your breast instead of receiving a breast implant. Although Dr. Lynch uses the safest silicone and saline implants during reconstruction surgeries, using your own tissues will help reduce your susceptibility to health complications.

Another advantage of fat grafting is the removal of unwanted fats from other body areas, including your abdomen. This will consequently slim you down and enhance your natural body curves.
