We are Australia’s experts in Breast Augmentation by Autologous Fat Transfer. Breast augmentation using your own fat is now the most popular procedure at Avenue Plastic Surgery. We were the first in Melbourne to offer this procedure and now have over five years of experience. While gel or saline filled implants were previously the only method plastic surgeons had to augment the size of breasts, recent years have seen the development of a fat grafting technique to provide a safe, satisfactory and superior breast augmentation. At Avenue Plastic Surgery we offer excellence and experience in Breast Enlargement by Autologous Fat Transfer.
Although plastic surgeons have been transferring fat into the face and other parts of the body for over 20 years, the amount of fat transferred was of relatively low volume (usually 10-20 mL). For the breasts, larger volumes (usually at least 100 mL) are required. While plastic surgeons were initially concerned whether such a large volume of fat would survive in the breast or cause lumpiness, advanced techniques are now available whereby large volumes of fat (100-400mL) can be safely transferred into the breasts to provide permanent breast augmentation with a very low risk of lumpiness. Fat Transfer to the breasts has a very wide application. It is suitable if you would like a slightly larger, softer and more attractive breast and prefer to avoid breast implants. It is suitable if you arehaving a breast lift as it will improve the shape of your breasts and improve the cleavage. It is also suitable if you are having your old breast implants removed and would like your breasts enhanced in a more natural way. And, of course, it is possible to use Autologous Fat Transfer for breast reconstruction in the case where a woman has had a mastectomy.
