What is fat transfer after breast explant?

There are many reasons why a woman might wish to remove her implants. These include a change in her aesthetic sensibilities, complications such as capsular contracture, rippling, or implant malposition, concerns about breast implant illness, and general discomfort. Fat transfer can help make up the difference in volume once the implants are taken out, providing a modest increase in cup size with a natural, feminine appearance. Fat transfer is performed by using liposuction to harvest fat from an area where it is plentiful, such as the thighs, belly, or hips. This has the added benefit of slimming and contouring the donor regions. Once the fat is extracted, it is then sterilized and purified, readying it for injection. During the final step, Dr. Lampert will add the fat to the breasts strategically, creating perfectly sculpted breast mounds.

What are the benefits of fat transfer after implant removal?

Because the fat used is taken from the patient’s own body, there is virtually no risk of an allergic response or rejection. The fat has a soft, natural look that many women find desirable. What’s more, with fat transfer, patients can completely avoid the complications that might occur with implants.

Fat transfer results can last indefinitely, unlike implants, which typically have to be replaced within 7-15 years. Lastly, fat transfer sculpts and refines the donor areas, offering clients the benefit of two body contouring procedures in one.

Who is a good candidate for fat transfer?

Breast explant performed on its own can leave the chest looking deflated and sagging. That is where the fat transfer procedure can come in handy. If you are a woman who desires fuller, more youthful breasts but you want a natural look without the risk of complications, fat transfer after breast implant removal may be the ideal solution for your goals. This procedure may even take the place of a breast lift without the need for additional scarring. The following characteristics define a good candidate for the treatment:

  • Healthy, both emotionally and physically
  • Non-smoker, or willing to quit before and after the procedure
  • Has a healthy amount of donor fat in the stomach, thighs, hips, or other areas
  • Wants to decrease the bust size without returning to pre-implant breasts
  • Will be satisfied with an increase of one cup size in the chest
  • Is open to body sculpting at the donor sites
  • Desires a natural look
  • Has a realistic, positive outlook towards their results
  • Wants a solution that will last a lifetime

What happens after my procedure?

The recovery for fat transfer after implant removal will be much more brief and manageable than it was for the original breast augmentation procedure. Patients will need to rest for 2-3 days before returning to work, provided they have a sedentary job. Most will need to wear a compression bra to help their chest heal properly. Dr. Lampert will provide a detailed aftercare plan and instructions and will follow up with you to ensure your recovery is progressing on track.
