Breast augmentation has been among the most common plastic surgery procedures for many years. While breast implants are very safe, they are not considered lifetime devices. Our Boston fat transfer breast augmentation is an innovative alternative to implants with the added benefit of liposuction. Liposuction is used to remove fat from your body, with the fat prepared in the operating room and then transferred to your breasts for a subtle, beautifully natural breast augmentation result.
Highly educated and experienced Boston plastic surgeons, Dr. Tantillo and Dr. Lee of Clareo Plastic Surgery understand that choosing to undergo any cosmetic procedure is a very personal decision. For that reason, they want to ensure that each patient has the resources and information to make a great decision. At Clareo Plastic Surgery, we offer you a personalized and comprehensive fat grafting breast augmentation plan and provide an unmatched patient experience.
Dr. Lee’s message to patients considering fat transfer breast augmentation:
Liposuction and fat transfer to the breast is a great way to naturally augment the breast with your own tissue. The combination of deletion with liposuction and addition with fat grafting will accentuate your results to give a cumulative effect of a beautiful, feminine silhouette. By building up the peaks and deepening the valleys of your body, we can achieve the goal you’ve always wanted.
Dr. Tantillo’s message to patients considering fat transfer breast augmentation:
Breast augmentation has long been a cornerstone of confidence-building aesthetic surgery. Fat transfer breast augmentation, particularly with its recent refinements, offers patients an exciting alternative to implant augmentation. The liposuction part of the operation is a powerful part of the overall patient result.
Autologous breast augmentation augments the breasts with the patient’s fat rather than with breast implants, although in some cases, such as asymmetry, fat transfer is combined with implant augmentation. This fat grafting provides the dual benefits of added volume to the breasts and reduction of unwanted fat deposits in the transfer area. The results of this procedure tend to look and feel very natural.
This procedure offers a fantastic alternative to women who don’t want to use conventional implants and would benefit from fat removal in another area. It’s easier and simpler to make a subtle, highly natural-looking change using fat grafting breast augmentation, so many women who just want a slight boost in size often choose this method. Feel confident and wear that top, formal, or swimsuit you’ve been wanting. Fat transfer breast augmentation provides:
Good candidates for this procedure are in generally good health, close to their optimal weight, but have enough subcutaneous fat in another location to be transferable. They should also have reasonable expectations regarding the usual outcomes of this method and be well-informed. Those who are smokers or dealing with serious, ongoing medical conditions might not be good candidates. If you'd like to find out if you'd make a good candidate for our fat transfer breast augmentation Boston breast surgeons, Dr. Tantillo and Dr. Lee, of Clareo Plastic Surgery, can address that and any other questions you have during a consultation.

At your consultation for fat transfer breast augmentation, we will discuss in detail your aesthetic goals as well as your health history. It’s our goal to ensure that you are informed so that together, we can make the best decision for cosmetic treatment. Once a plan is in place, we will review preparation guidelines and what to expect during recovery.
Fat transfer breast augmentation can be combined with a mastopexy (breast lift) to further enhance the new appearance of the breasts. Since an augmentation only affects the size and shape, a lift may also be needed to tighten to remove loose, sagging skin. Combining the procedures means only one surgical stay and one recovery period.
At Clareo Plastic Surgery, fat grafting breast augmentation is generally performed in the office using oral sedation and local anesthesia (although patients who prefer an operating room can choose that option).
When combined with other procedures, such as a breast lift, autologous breast augmentation is performed in an operating room with general anesthesia. Your surgeon will begin by making tiny incisions insert the liposuction cannula and extract fat cells for transfer. This fat will be processed to remove blood or other unwanted substances. Then, tiny incisions will be made around the breast, through which the purified fat will be injected.
Recovery varies between patients, but most need about a week of complete rest and recovery and experience some bruising and swelling for up to three weeks. Following your surgeon’s detailed recovery instructions is key to successful outcomes. While it can take as long as six months to a year for final results, they are lifelong.
At Clareo Plastic Surgery in Boston, Dr. Lee and Dr. Tantillo lead a team of professionals committed to a genuine balance of skillful proficiency in their craft and compassionate, attentive patient care. We want to ensure not only that your procedure is successful but also that you are comfortable, informed, and that your specific needs have been met.
This procedure is safe and low-risk when performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon.
Transferred fat is subject to volume changes associated with changes in body weight, just as is all fat. However, only significant changes in body weight are generally associated with appreciable changes in breast size.
Some patients report minor changes in sensitivity, but this typically resolves on its own within a few weeks to months.
Other than the possible surgical complications in any surgery, breast surgery has not been shown to increase the risk of cancer or other health conditions.
The cost of fat transfer breast augmentation will vary depending on the needs of each individual patient. All pricing information will be discussed in detail at your consultation as well as financing options.
