Dr. Sato created an infographic on the top five frequently asked questions on Fat Grafting to the Breast to help all those considering a Breast Augmentation decide on the best way to go about it.

1. What is Fat Grafting?

Fat Grafting is the process in which fat is removed from areas of the body with excess fat via liposuction and injected into a different area.

2. Where is the fat taken from?

The fat is harvested from areas of the body where there is excess fat such as the abdomen, love handles or thighs.

3. How much fat can be used?

For breast augmentation, the maximum fill volume is approximately 200 to 250 cc per side, which ultimately leaves approximately 150 cc of volume after the expected 30-50% fat volume loss. This is an increase in size of about one cup size.

4. How does it compare to implants?

Fat grafting to the breasts feels more natural than saline or silicone implants and has the potential for less complications.

5. Who is the ideal candidate?

It is ideal for patients who desire a small volume change and only want enhancement from natural tissue.
