There are a number of risks associated with breast implants; capsular contracture is one of the most common complications to this surgery as the body reacts to a foreign material by forming a hard capsular around the implant. Breast implants are not a lifetime device so you will usually require a repeat procedure at some point.
Fat transfer to the breasts, therefore, can be the perfect solution for those women that want a subtle enhancement using their own tissue. Fat that successfully transfers to the breasts will remain there permanently as long as a healthy weight if maintained. The area where the fat has been removed, known as the donor site, will also see better definition which can be very appealing.
During the fat transfer to the breasts, Mr Juling Ong will usually harvest the fat from the abdomen or thighs using the liposuction technique. The fat is then purified to remove any impurities before it is inserted into the breasts.
The breasts are usually ‘overfilled’ as a certain amount of fat is always reabsorbed by the body, so it will take six months before you will see the full results.
Fat transfer can produce a very natural, subtle enhancement to the breasts, but it is not suitable for every woman; during your consultation with Mr Juling Ong will discuss both the benefits as well as the possible drawbacks of the procedure so you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed.
