Ideal Candidates for Breast Fat Transfer
Ideal candidates are women who are in overall good health and wish to enhance the size of their breasts with a fat transfer. We also recommend for women to be past childbearing and breastfeeding as these life-transforming events can alter your results. If you already have a thin or lean body, don’t fret. Dr. Del Vecchio has helped countless women of all shapes and sizes achieve their aesthetic goals. For patients who may not have sufficient fat, Dr. Del Vecchio will often recommend that you loosen up on your usual diet and exercise routine to gain a few pounds for your fat transfer. Typically, many plastic surgeons will turn away leaner patients, claiming it’s not possible to achieve a fuller appearance with a fat transfer. However, thanks to Dr. Del Vecchio’s years of extensive experience and expertise, he can help make your dream goals a reality.
Treatment for a Breast Fat Transfer
Dr. Del Vecchio utilizes his ingenious expansion vibration lipo filling method to safely and effectively transfer fat. This approach can be done alone to achieve a more natural look and feel to your bust or in conjunction with implants (composite breast augmentation). The EVL technique uses an advanced liposuction process to extract fat from various areas of the body where excess fat tissue exists. From there, the fat is purified and then transferred to the breasts to enhance their overall size and contour.
What to Expect from a Breast Fat Transfer
There are several benefits and drawbacks to undergoing a breast fat transfer. If performed alone, you will be limited to increasing your bust by only one cup size, some of the fat may be reabsorbed by the body (which means no size increase), and there is minimal to no breast lift with this method. However, when a fat transfer is combined with breast implants, it can offer greater lift, longer-lasting results, and enhancement options (can go up several cup sizes). The most noteworthy benefit of a fat transfer is that it will not only increase the size of your bust but will also make other areas look slimmer for an overall leaner and sexy body contour.

Breast Fat Transfer FAQs
The cost of your procedure will depend on whether you are receiving a fat transfer alone or combining it with implants for a composite breast augmentation. During your private consultation, Dr. Del Vecchio will review your cosmetic goals and concerns to develop a tailored treatment plan. From there, he can help estimate your costs and discuss all your payment options.
Depending on the type of augmentation you receive (fat transfer and/or composite), your healing process will vary. However, in each case, you will need to keep in mind that two different areas will need healing: the extraction site and transfer location (breasts). Our office will discuss all pre- and post-operative care with you in detail prior to your surgery so you can know what to expect.
A major advantage of undergoing a breast fat transfer is that it offers natural-looking results. It also does not involve the risks that are associated with synthetic implants or visible scarring. Breast symmetry is also more easily attained with a natural fat transfer.
