Using the patient’s own fat, the procedure can help mitigate cosmetic complications with breast implants, or it can provide a subtle yet elegant lift in the bust. Dr. Esmailian uses advanced techniques to create a more youthful, plump breast appearance, enhancing your sense of satisfaction with how you look.

What is Fat Transfer?

During a fat transfer procedure, fat is harvested from a donor area of the body where it is plentiful, typically the belly, the flanks, or the thighs. It may quickly become apparent that fat transfer has the secondary benefit of slimming and sculpting the donor areas through liposuction.

Once the fat is extracted, it is purified and sterilized, readying it for transfer. Dr. Esmailian will then strategically inject the fat into the areas of the chest that will benefit from natural augmentation. In this manner, he can correct many imperfections, including asymmetry and visible implant edges.

Whether Dr. Esmailian is enhancing the look of your implants with fat or transfer, or he is performing an autologous breast augmentation procedure, the end result is a more natural-looking aesthetic that is ultra-feminine and inviting.

Who is a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer can be performed to either correct implant-related flaws during breast revision or to naturally enhance the bust after implant removal. In either case, fat transfer is ideal for those seeking an organic-looking outcome that is youthful and flattering.

Overall health is the best measure for candidacy when it comes to fat transfer. Patients should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who have realistic expectations for what the procedure can accomplish. This is based on a private consultation with our team in Orange County.

What Happens During my Recovery?

The incisions for fat transfer are tiny, so scarring is minimal. After the procedure, a friend, family member, or assistant will need to drive you home and stay with you temporarily for the first 24 hours. Most clients can return to work after one week, provided their job is sedentary. Dr. Esmailian will counsel you on the best time to resume exercise and strenuous activities.

What can I expect in terms of scarring?

The incisions with fat transfer are typically only 2-3 mm, so scarring is quite minimal and inconspicuous. Furthermore, the incisions are placed in areas where they are well-hidden.
