A breast fat transfer can simultaneously enhance the breasts while removing fat from another area of the body. Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center offers this proven technique to women living in Washington, DC, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia from our offices in Vienna, Woodbridge, and Rockville.
What is a Breast Fat Transfer?
A breast fat transfer is a method of enhancing the breasts using a technique called fat transfer and injection. This treatment involves harvesting excess fat from an area of the body via liposuction, purifying it, then injecting it into the breasts to enhance their size and shape. Breast fat transfers are becoming a popular alternative to traditional breast augmentation because they require significantly smaller incisions, meaning less scarring. The results are subtle, with a natural look and feel.
How Much Does a Breast Fat Transfer Cost in Washington, DC?
The average cost of a breast fat transfer procedure is about $5,500, but can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. To schedule any treatment, we ask for a $1,000 deposit that is nonrefundable. Two weeks before surgery, the patient will have a pre-op appointment where his or her full balance is due to be paid in full.
We offer flexible financing options, including Alphaeon® and CareCredit® to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. Alphaeon® and CareCredit® pay us in full and the patient pays the financing company a monthly fee. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is the Breast Fat Transfer Procedure Like?
The first step in a breast fat transfer procedure is harvesting fat from the body using liposuction. Patients often choose to remove fat from the stomach, hips, or thighs in order to contour these areas in the process. After the fat is collected, it is purified to prepare it for injection. Then, fat is injected into the breasts to increase their size and improve their shape.
Are There Any Risks Associated with a Breast Fat Transfer?
One of the many benefits of a fat transfer treatment is that it exclusively uses fat from the patient’s own body. This minimizes the risk of rejection and other side effects that are often associated with surgical procedures.
What is Recovery like Following a Breast Fat Transfer?
A breast fat transfer requires less recovery than a breast augmentation with breast implants, with most patients returning to work and other normal activities in less than a week. Still, patients will have to avoid exercise and other strenuous activity for at least a month after their treatment.
If you would like to enhance the breasts while also contouring another area of the body, a breast fat transfer may be right for you.
