Can I enlarge my breast without surgery ?

Yes, fat grafting can be used to that end. There are several benefits to this type of breast augmentation : the breasts keep their natural consistency and appearance, the incisions made to harvest and inject fat are very short and the resulting scars are almost invisible. The recovery after breast enlargement with fat grafting is fairly simple and significantly shorter than with breast implants. This procedure is intended for patients requesting a moderate breast augmentation in Tunisia with a natural appearance (1 cup size at best).

Can fat grafting serve breast reconstruction ?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is frequently performed as a part of breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. Fat transfer can’t reconstruct the whole breast on it’s own, but it can be used to make adjustments, correct imbalances or cleavage imperfections.

Are there limitations to breast fat grafting ?

Fat grafting is less used in the field of cosmetic surgery, mainly because of volume limitations. On average, breast augmentation patients need a 250cc to 300cc volume addition to increase their cup size by one or two. Fat grafting doesn’t allow such volumes to be added to the breasts. To get a 250cc augmentation, surgeons have to harvest 400cc of fat for each breast, which equals a total of 800cc, and this fat volume is not always available in very slim patients. Additionally, the results are not as predictable as breast implants since a small percentage of the transferred fat is reabsorbed by the body, but a qualified surgeon experienced with this procedure usually meets the patients expectations.
