Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation in Washington, DC with Dr. Marwan Khalifeh

Before/After

A new and increasingly popular choice for breast enhancement is the use of one’s own fat taken from other portions of the body, processed and purified, and then micro-reinjected into the breast to create a fuller breast size.

Advantages over breast enhancement with implants:

  1. Use of your own fat which is more natural
  2. No foreign materials used
  3. Easy add on case to any liposuction procedure
  4. Very minimal, almost invisible scarring
  5. Successful results do not typically need future additional surgery (where as implants need future surgery)

Disadvantages

Enhancement is milder and size of increase is milder than is possible with implants
may interfere with mammography and future cancer detection
some resorption of the fat occurs, result of final size less predictable
may need several surgeries to attain desired final size since variable resorption of fat may occur.

In Dr. Khalifeh’s opinion, fat transfer to breasts is best reserved for women looking for a mild enhancement with minimal scarring, especially if they are already considering liposuction where harvesting the fat would create a cosmetic improvement in the donor sites.  Women looking for increases of several cup sizes are better served by an implant surgery, especially if the site of harvest of the fat would not create cosmetic improvement on its own.
