Am I a good candidate for fat-transfer breast augmentation?

Good candidates for fat-transfer breast augmentation typically seek a moderate increase in breast size and prefer natural-looking breast augmentation. Ideal candidates should have sufficient fat in other areas for harvesting.

Risks of a fat transfer augmentation

Fat transfer for breast augmentation is typically a safe procedure, but as with all surgery, there are some risks which include:

  • Fat necrosis which is the death of fat cells
  • Fat reabsorption by the body can lead to asymmetry or unevenness between the breasts
  • Risk of infection at the injection sites
  • The risk that the fat will calcify, which can lead to pain or discomfort
  • Slight risk of fat embolism, which occurs when fat enters the bloodstream and blocks a blood vessel

Possible side effects

The following side effects may be experienced:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising both at the harvest site and injection site
  • Irregularity at the injection site and fat harvest site

How is a fat transfer breast augmentation performed?

If you decide to have your fat transfer breast augmentation with us at HR Plastic Surgery, this is what you can expect:


Your consultation is a crucial part of your journey and we make it a priority that you feel at ease throughout. Carried out by Mr Ridha personally, he will take time to listen carefully to understand your goals and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

He will then discuss the suitable treatment options available, including the risks and benefits, recovery times and expected outcomes. Mr Ridha is happy for you to attend with a family member or friend should you feel it necessary or for additional support.


The breast fat transfer procedure begins with the selection of a donor area, such as the abdomen or thighs, where excess fat is harvested. This fat is then purified and injected into the breasts through tiny incisions. The entire process is designed to be minimally invasive, allowing patients to return home on the same day.


Recovery from a breast fat transfer is generally swift, with most patients resuming daily activities within days. It’s crucial to avoid rigorous activities for a couple of weeks to ensure optimal fat integration. Mild swelling and bruising are normal and typically subside within two weeks.

Fat transfer with an implant as an option

Hybrid breast augmentation combines fat transfer with breast implants to achieve a fuller and more natural appearance. This approach involves placing an implant for foundational volume and then layering purified fat around it for a smoother, more natural contour. This method offers enhanced shape and symmetry with lasting, natural-looking results.

How much does a fat transfer breast augmentation cost?

The total cost of your breast augmentation with fat transfer is dependent on your breast shape, how much your breasts are sagging and the desired results. We recommend that you book an initial consultation with Mr Ridha and following his assessment and discussion of your desired outcome, an accurate cost can be provided to achieve your goals.
