Breast Fat Transfer

Breast Fat Transfer with Dr. Azizi

Dr. Azizi in Chicago offers an innovative and natural approach to breast augmentation through fat transfer. This procedure enhances breast size and shape by using the patient’s own fat, taken from other parts of the body, to create fuller breasts without the need for implants. It’s an excellent option for those seeking a modest increase in breast size and a more natural look and feel.

Who is a Candidate for Breast Fat Transfer?

Candidates for breast fat transfer with Dr. Azizi might include individuals who:

  • Desire a natural increase in breast size without the use of implants.
  • Have sufficient fat deposits in other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, suitable for liposuction and transfer.
  • Are looking for correction of asymmetry or restoration of breast volume lost due to aging, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding.
  • Are in good overall health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.

Initial Consultation with Dr. Azizi

Your first step towards breast augmentation through fat transfer is a consultation with Dr. Azizi. During this meeting, you’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations. Dr. Azizi will:

  • Review your medical history, including any current health conditions, past surgeries, medications, and lifestyle habits.
  • Perform a physical examination to assess your breast anatomy and identify potential donor sites for fat harvesting.
  • Explain the procedure, including its benefits, risks, and what you can expect during the recovery process.

Preparing for Your Procedure

Preparation for breast fat transfer with Dr. Azizi involves several steps:

  • Avoiding certain medications and supplements that can increase bleeding.
  • Making lifestyle adjustments, such as quitting smoking and limiting alcohol consumption, to enhance healing and recovery.
  • Ensuring a healthy diet to support healing.
  • Arranging for assistance during the initial recovery period, including help at home and transportation, as you’ll need to avoid strenuous activities.

During the Procedure

Breast fat transfer is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure begins with liposuction to remove fat from the designated donor area(s). The extracted fat is then purified and prepared for injection. Dr. Azizi carefully injects the fat into the breasts, sculpting and enhancing their size and shape with precision. This technique offers the dual benefit of reducing unwanted fat in one area while enhancing the breasts.

Postoperative Care and Recovery

After the procedure, you’ll be given detailed instructions for care, including managing any discomfort and ensuring proper healing of both the harvest and injection sites. Mild swelling and bruising are common but will diminish over time. Dr. Azizi will advise on when it’s safe to resume normal activities and will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery and the success of the fat transfer.

The recovery period varies depending on the extent of liposuction and individual healing rates. Most patients can return to work and light activities within a week, with more strenuous activities gradually resumed as advised by Dr. Azizi.

Dr. Azizi’s expertise in breast fat transfer provides a natural alternative to traditional breast implants, offering patients a safer and more natural-looking enhancement. With his personalized approach, Dr. Azizi ensures that each patient receives care tailored to their specific needs and goals, achieving optimal results that complement their body’s natural contours.
