Fat transfer is another approach to breast augmentation. With sufficient excess fat available elsewhere, breast augmentation can be performed by grafting the excess fat and injecting it into the breasts. However, this in itself poses as a limitation in most cases, with sufficient excess fat not available.
Another limitation of this approach is presented in the form of fat uptake. That is to say, post procedure, a great percentage of the injected fat (sometimes up to 50%) is absorbed by the body, as a result of which the desired level of fullness is not achieved.
Breast augmentation is not indicated in the case of drooping breasts. If you want to get rid of the sagging and at the same time increase the fullness, a breast lift (mastopexy) is indicated in conjunction with breast augmentation.
