Fat grafting technique improves results of breast augmentation

Fat grafting technique improves results of breast augmentation

In women undergoing breast augmentation, a technique using transplantation of a small amount of the patient’s own fat cells can produce better cosmetic outcomes, reports a study in the April issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

In particular, the fat grafting technique can achieve a more natural-appearing cleavage—avoiding the “separated breasts” appearance that can occur after breast augmentation, according to the report by Dr. Francisco G. Bravo of Clinica Gomez Bravo, Madrid.

Fat Grafting Adds to Cosmetic Results of Breast Augmentation

Dr Bravo analyzed the outcomes of breast augmentation surgery in 59 women. Thirty-eight women underwent conventional surgery using breast implants only. In the remaining 21 patients, Dr. Bravo used a combination technique using breast implants plus “selective para-sternal fat grafting.”

In this approach, a small amount of the patient’s own fat was harvested from elsewhere in the body - such as the thighs or abdomen. After processing, the fat cells were carefully placed along the inner (medial) borders of the breasts. The goal was to achieve a more natural shape, and particularly to soften the “medial transition zone” between the sternum (breastbone) and the implant edges.
