Breast enlargement using own fat (lipofilling)

Worth it 92% Worth it Based on 39 patient ratings

For minor breast augmentation or remodelling, aside from artificial substances in the form of silicon implants or injectable implants using hyaluronic acid (for example Macrolane), the body's very own matter – fat – can be used. Fat is first removed from areas of the body where excess fat is stored, such as the abdomen, thighs or buttocks, with the help of tumescent liposuction. The fat collected is then carefully modified using special technology and injected into the subcutaneous tissues of the breast under local anaesthesia in the form of autologous fat grafts with the aid of micro fat injections. The immediate effect is good, but you must count with the fact that the effects of the procedure will not last forever and it is more than likely that it will need to be repeated in the future due to the gradual reabsorption of fat.
