Breast Augmentation with Fat

Ríos MD Plastics - Aumento de Busto

Augmentation mammoplasty can be performed with silicone implants, which is the most common, or in some cases it can also be performed with the patient’s own fat. It is reserved for patients with good quality and firmness of skin on the breast, with autoimmune diseases and for anyone who is looking for a slight to moderate increase in volume, since not much fat can be infiltrated.


It is important to know that in order to perform a breast augmentation with fat, a liposuction must be performed to obtain the amount of fat that is required to be infiltrated. Likewise, it is important to know that part of the fat that is infiltrated is lost for different reasons, however the amount that is lost is very little, since we use modern techniques to give the best results.

Type of anesthesia: Epidural block + sedation

Duration: Depending on liposuction areas

Recovery time: 1-2 weeks

Important aspects of recovery:

– The sutures are removed after 7 days.

– A special compression bra is used, which is recommended to be worn throughout the day for a minimum of 4 weeks after surgery, to provide support, reduce discomfort, reduce the risk of bleeding and limit inflammation.

– It is recommended a minimum of 3 weeks of not carrying things of more than 10 pounds in weight, as well as avoiding lifting the arms above the shoulder level, this to maintain an adequate shape and avoid causing internal bleeding.

– After a month, normal life can be resumed gradually.

– The final result takes between 3 and 6 months, even so, the changes in the shape are noticed immediately after the surgery.

– As in any body contouring surgery, it is advisable to maintain strict weight control and exercise to have a better final result.
