This 31 year old woman came to us requesting breast augmentation using her own fat. (breast augmentation with fat transfer) She did not want an implant and only wanted a modest ½ cup increase in size if possible. Despite her thin frame, we were able to liposuction her trunk and place 150ml of fat into each breast. She was able to go from an A cup to a full B cup using her own fat and no implant.
Our lovely patient felt it was time to revise and restore her body, with a Mommy Makeover. She was especially concerned about the loss of muscle tone following her pregnancies, and excess skin and fat in her abdomen. Dr. Lepore performed an extended Tummy Tuck, along with Liposuction. Our patient also wanted to restore some of the lost volume in her breasts - but she did not wish to have breast implants. To achieve her goals, Dr. Lepore was able to perform Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer to the Breasts. Her results were enhanced with Renuvion- a device using J-plasma energy to aid in tightening the skin over the liposuctioned areas. She is very happy with her mommy makeover results, seen here 2 months following surgery.
This is a patient in her late 30s, who had her breast implants removed a number of years ago, because of capsular contractures, a common complication. She was still hoping to change the appearance of her breasts, especially after pregnancy, and loss of upper pole volume.
She didn't want a breast augmentation with implants, but did want removal of excess fat from a number of areas - and hoped that Fat Transfer to her breasts would give her the results she wanted.
Dr. Lepore performed Liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and thighs - and then a Fat Transfer to the Breasts. In this case, 1000cc of the patient's fat were re-injected into each breast. She had been advised that a Breast Lift would maximize her results, but for now, she wanted to see what Fat Transfer alone could achieve.
She is seen 6 weeks after her procedures, and is very pleased with the outcome; the improved body contour achieved through Liposuction, as well as her renewed breast volume and shape.
