What is Fat Transfer to Breasts?
Fat transfer to breast surgery is a procedure that uses Vaser Liposuction to extract excess fat from a chosen area of your body to then transfer that fat to your breasts, with the aim to enhance their shape and size. This innovative breast augmentation alternative to breast implants can give beautiful natural-looking results, as it uses a more natural approach to breast augmentation.
In addition to improving the breasts shape, Breast Fat Transfer can also help to sculpt and contour the part of the body from where the fat has been removed. Breast Fat Transfer can be an ideal solution for many people who have considered breast surgery but may not be comfortable with having surgical implants.
This type of fat transfer breast augmentation UK can additionally help to treat an uneven breast size and shape, as the fat that has been removed can be re-injected into very specific areas of your breasts.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.
What Are the Benefits of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation UK?
Fat Transfer to breasts surgery is performed at our London clinics and can be carried out as a day surgery without the need for general anaesthesia or an overnight stay. Breast Fat Transfer procedures are significantly less invasive than traditional implant surgery. This means they usually involve less downtime for your own convenience, which is ideal for those with busy lives. The reduced downtime following the surgery is a major factor when choosing Breast Fat Transfer UK over traditional breast augmentation with implants.
The added benefit of having the excess fat removed from a specific part of the body appeals to many patients, as not only can you enjoy shapelier breasts, but you can also see the benefits of having a liposuction procedure. Common areas women have had fat removed and transferred to their breasts are their stomachs, buttocks or thighs, however, your Surgeon will decide the most suitable areas to select fat from during your consultation.

At all times we want you to feel happy and comfortable with any procedure you choose to undertake. Therefore, you will always be offered a relaxed, no-obligation consultation with one of our expert Treatment Coordinators to discuss your options in full.
This will give you the chance to ask any questions and learn more about Fat Transfer to Breast UK enhancement. We will talk to you about your full medical history, any personal concerns you may have 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 Breast Fat Transfer UK surgery. This allows you to ask any lingering questions you may have and feel as comfortable as possible around your treatment team. Your dedicated Treatment Coordinator will also schedule your visits including blood tests, mammogram and ultrasound if required. They will also help to guide you through your bespoke aftercare plan so that you are fully prepared for the best possible recovery following your procedure.
3 DURING THE PROCEDURE
Your comfort and safety at EF MEDISPA throughout any treatment is our primary concern. When you arrive at the clinic on the day of your fat transfer to breast procedure, your Surgeon will be on hand should you need to discuss further any last-minute queries and to take your final consent.
Fat Transfer augmentation is carried out under conscious sedation for your convenience, so you will also meet with your Anaesthetist prior to the procedure. The Anaesthetist will help you to relax and feel comfortable before proceeding.
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 which prepares it to be transferred. For the final stage, this removed fat will be re-injected into your breasts. Typically, the procedure will last between 2 – 3 hours. After the procedure, 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 at EF MEDISPA, so while you relax in the recovery suite, your dedicated Nurse will be available to discuss your bespoke 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 leave for home, your team will arrange your follow-up review appointment with your Surgeon and further outline how you should expect your recovery to progress to maximise results.

Fat Transfer to breasts FAQs
How long does the treatment take?
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation combines two procedures together; Vaser Liposuction and Fat Transfer. For this reason, it will take a little longer than an implant procedure typically does.
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 fat transfer to breasts procedure, though you may notice some minor bruising and swelling in the days immediately after your treatment.
How soon will I notice my procedure results?
This type of breast enhancement procedure will have instant results, though you’ll see your post-procedure shape and size at its best just a few weeks after the surgery.
Will my procedure outcome last?
Our expert Surgeons at EF MEDISPA will guide you through what you can expect your body to look like after the 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 that is transferred will be metabolised by the body after the procedure is completed, however the remaining fat will stay in place as long as you don’t lose any further 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 the possible risks during your consultation for fat transfer to breast surgery and in discussion with your Surgeon prior to your procedure. Your medical team will guide you on how best to administer your bespoke aftercare plan and provide you with the essential information. This will include how long you will need to wear a medical sports bra and a compression garment for optimal results.
Our priority post-treatment is to help you achieve a relaxed recovery to maximise the results. You are likely to have some swelling and bruising as a result of fat transfer breast augmentation UK surgery. However, this will usually subside within 7-14 days.
