Fat Grafting to Breasts

A Natural Breast Augmentation

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a relatively low-risk alternative to breast implants due to using the patient’s own tissues. A fat transfer can enhance the appearance of breasts and reduce the appearance of fat in the abdomen or thighs.

 

Fat transfer to the breast is a less-invasive procedure to increase breast size and restore volume-loss. 

 

Benefits of natural breast augmentation include:

  • Subtle enhancement, usually one cup size
  • Overall body sculpting
  • Less downtime than traditional breast augmentation
  • No complications from implants

Fat Grafting to Hands

Natural hand rejuvenation Augmentation

Fat transfer to the hands is a less-invasive procedure to restore the natural loss of fat and collagen that occurs with age and element exposure to the hands.

Benefits of a Hand Fat Transfer include:

 

  • Usage your own body fat as a filler, significantly reducing the potential for allergic reaction
  • Rapid procedure duration, taking 15 to 20 minutes
  • Results that last for years
  • Reduction of wrinkles, creases, and folds 
  • Correction of any gaunt, veiny, “tendony” appearance
  • Soft and supple hands
  • Natural presentation when compared with commercial fillers
  • Easy combination of hand fat transfers with other fat transfer procedures to eliminate facial wrinkles, and more

“Surgery sans looking surgical”

Who is an ideal candidate for fat grafting procedures?

Good candidates for fat transfer include patients who are in good mental and physical health that want to subtly increase their breast size or rejuvenate their hands. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not candidates for this procedure.

Dr. Catherine Chang recommends that candidates for fat transfer should:

  • Be in good health
  • Be non-smokers
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Be mentally prepared to have surgery
  • Understand the risks of a surgical procedure

Fat Transfer Recovery

Immediately after fat transfer, you might experience slight redness and discomfort, and bruising is possible at injection points. Your breasts and hands will also likely be puffy or swollen. These side effects tend to dissipate quickly and a long period of rest of recovery isn’t necessary. Ice packs or cold compresses can help ease these effects more rapidly. Don’t apply too much pressure though, as you don’t want to force fat into new areas of your hands unnaturally. Some of these side effects may last for seven to 10 days.

After many hours spent looking at pictures, studying surgeons' credentials, reading reviews and staring at my aging face, I chose Catherine Chang, MD for my facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty and CO2 laser procedure. It was a leap of faith that came with great anxiety in the midst of a pandemic year. My first visit with Dr. Chang was unhurried and she took the time to explain the procedures she was recommending as well as the results that could be expected. Her confidence and understanding were reassuring. Dr. Chang is a skilled surgeon, talented and perceptive. She understood what I was looking for. State of the art results: Dr. Chang is an amazing young woman, a perfectionist.

Dr. Chang is AMAZING. I’d had incredibly severe breathing issues my whole life—I’m talking sinus headaches, blurry vision, absolutely *no* airflow through one side of my nose—all from an extremely deviated septum. On top of everything else, the septum issue created a huge bump in my nose that proved to be very problematic for my career as a performer. As a woman of color, finding a doctor who could improve my quality of life, adjust my profile, but simultaneously honor my heritage and my ethnicity was a terrifying thought. I wanted to solve my problem, but I wanted to come out looking like me. I was overwhelmed by the fear of not being heard—as I’d had many other experiences where my dignity as a patient was clearly not the priority.

Dr. Catherine Chang changed my life. At 43, I unfortunately had aged prematurely in my lower face and neck and was so unhappy with my changing appearance. I had met with a couple of other surgeons but was too scared to trust them with such a big surgery. Not only is Dr. Chang professionally incredible but she is also cool and sweet as can be and every office visit is a joy. I am so grateful I found Dr. Catherine Chang!

"Dr. Chang is absolutely amazing. I am beyond happy and thankful that I chose to have my procedure with her! Words can't describe how happy I am! My recovering was less than 3 days! Same day I was already on my feet! I only took pain medication for about a day. I recovered so fast, not a single issue. Now the best part is the results, the result is INCREDIBLE. Exactly what I wanted! Thank you Dr. Chang!!!"

"Dr. Catherine Chang is a masterful plastic surgeon! I cannot say enough about how happy I am with the results of my recent surgery! I have "cred" as they say because I'm in the business of medical aesthetics--a Registered Nurse in this field since the early 2000's. I have been extremely fortunate to work with legendary plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Thank you Dr. Chang for restoring this face and neck!"

"Dr. Cat Chang is amazing! I wish there were more than 5 stars I could give her. After years of contemplation, I went ahead and had the rhinoplasty (nose job) I have always wanted with Dr. Chang. I could not be more pleased with the results! I love my new profile, it is exactly what I hoped for!"

"Simply put, Dr. Chang is phenomenal on so many levels! It was such an easy decision to choose her to perform my breast implant replace and lift surgery. Apart from having a "rock star" academic resume, upon meeting her I was immediately impressed as she has a very caring demeanor, is personable, professional, compassionate, but most importantly, incredibly experienced and knowledgeable."
