Fat Transfer Breast Enlargement in London
Fat Transfer is a more natural form of breast enhancement as it uses fat from your own body to alter the shape and size of your breasts, without the need for implants. If you’ve been considering breast surgery but don’t like the idea of silicone implants you could consider Fat Transfer breast augmentation instead. Natural enhancement through Fat Transfer is a less invasive procedure chosen by thousands of people every year here in the UK.
At EF MEDISPA, we take the time to discuss all of your surgery options with you, exploring your goals and concerns so that you can come to the decision that’s right for you. Like many other women you may decide that you would prefer to increase your breast size without the aid of implants. By choosing the process of Fat Transfer, using Vaser Liposuction, you will undergo a procedure with significantly less recovery time and can benefit from sculpting to another area of your body too.
We offer same-day breast surgery which will be carried out at our specially equipped clinic allowing you to return home after your procedure without the need for an overnight stay. Your surgeon will be a GMC (General Medical Council) registered surgeon, the approved standard for professionals carrying out cosmetic surgeries such as Fat Transfer in the UK. Once the procedure has been carried out, you may find the area is swollen and a little bruised. However, you should be able to return to work in a relatively short time compared to downtime associated with other surgeries.

Step by Step Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
1 NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION
We want you to feel happy and comfortable with whichever procedure you choose, which is why you will always be offered a fuss-free no obligation consultation with one of our expert Treatment Coordinators to discuss your options. This gives you the chance to ask questions and learn more about Fat Transfer for breast enhancement. We will talk to you about your medical history, your personal hang-ups and your goals, helping you to make an informed decision about the type of procedure that is right for you.
2 BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
You will always meet with your surgeon before we book you in for treatment; this allows you to ask any lingering questions and to feel comfortable around your treatment team. Your dedicated Treatment Coordinator will schedule your visits including blood tests, mammogram and ultrasound if required. They will also guide you through your aftercare plan, so that you are fully prepared for the best possible recovery after your procedure.
3 DURING THE PROCEDURE
Your comfort and safety is our primary concern. When you arrive at the clinic on the day of your procedure, your surgeon will be on hand should you need to discuss any last minute queries and to take your final consent. Fat Transfer augmentation is carried out under conscious sedation, so you will also meet with your anaesthetist, who will help you to relax and get comfortable.
The first part of the procedure is to harvest the fat using Vaser Liposuction. Once collected the fat is then processed using a specialised system preparing it to be transferred. For the final stage, the fat will be re-injected into your breasts. Typically, the procedure lasts between two and three hours. Next, you will be moved to a private recovery suite where you can relax until you are ready to depart.
4 AFTER THE PROCEDURE
We want you to feel at ease throughout your treatment , so while you relax in the recovery suite your nurse will again be available to discuss your aftercare plan. Herbal infusions and healthy snacks will also be on hand to help keep you feeling your best and you’ll be monitored closely by your medical team. When you are ready to head home your team will arrange your review appointment with your surgeon and further outline how you should expect your recovery to progress.

Breast Enhancement with Fat Transfer FAQs
How long does the treatment take?
Fat Transfer breast augmentation combines two procedures – Vaser Liposuction and Fat Transfer and for this reason it will take a little longer than an implant procedure.
Will the procedure hurt?
Your medical team will be on hand throughout to ensure your procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible. You will undergo conscious sedation for the procedure, though you may notice some bruising and swelling in the days immediately after your treatment.
How soon will I notice my procedure results?
This type of breast enhancement procedure has instant results, though you’ll see your post procedure shape and size at its best just a few weeks after surgery.
Will my procedure outcome last?
Our expert surgeons will guide you in what you can expect your body to look like after surgery as the results tend to be less predictable than if you chose to insert a silicone implant with a pre-determined size and shape. You should also be aware that a small amount of the fat transferred will be metabolised by the body after the procedure, however the remaining fat will stay in place as long as you don’t lose weight in the future, as the fat can be lost in the area it was transferred to.
Are there any side effects associated with the procedure?
You’ll be made aware of all possible risks during your consultation and in discussion with your surgeon prior to your procedure. Your medical team will guide you on how best to administer your aftercare plan and provide you with essential information such as how long you need to wear a medical sports bra and a compression garment for optimal results. Our priority is to help you achieve a relaxed recovery. You are likely to have some swelling and bruising as a result of your Fat Transfer procedure and this will usually subside in seven to ten days.
