If you are considering Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast
The latest advances in fat grafting give women the option of increasing their breast size using their own fat cells rather than saline or silicone implants. During this innovative procedure, called Natural Breast Augmentation, Dr. Asaadi collects fat cells from other parts of the body, including the tummy, thighs, or love handles, and carefully transfers them to the breast.
When considering Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast, Dr. Asaadi encourages his patients to have realistic expectations. With this procedure, patients can expect to see a one cup size increase in their breasts.
As with any breast augmentation procedure, Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast carries some risk of calcification in the breasts. This can make mammograms harder to read, potentially delaying the detection of breast cancer.
The best candidate for Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast
The best candidates for Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast are women who are in good overall health and are within their ideal weight range. Ideally, women who have this procedure have never been pregnant, as pregnancy can cause laxity of the skin of the breast and droopiness of the nipples.
Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast is also a good natural alternative to synthetic implants for women who have had mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery after breast cancer. In addition to increasing the size of the breast and evening out contour irregularities, evidence suggests that the stem cells found within fat cells can regenerate the tissue damaged by radiation treatments.
All candidates for Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast must have a normal mammogram reading prior to the procedure.
Planning your Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast procedure
Prior to your Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast procedure, you will receive a complete medical evaluation and consultation. During your initial visits, Dr. Asaadi will evaluate your overall health, determine which part of the body to harvest fat cells from, discuss the risks involved with Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast, and help you develop realistic expectations for your breasts following the procedure. During the consultation, Dr. Asaadi will also discuss the type of anesthesia he will use, where the surgery will be performed, and the projected costs of the procedure.
Be sure to inform Dr. Asaadi of any existing medical conditions you may have and any medications, vitamins, or other drugs you are currently taking.

Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast
Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast can be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast consists of two procedures performed on the same day. The first procedure is liposuction, in which fat cells are gently harvested from other parts of the body. The fat cells are handled very carefully during and after liposuction in order to ensure their viability – their ability to survive, grow, and multiply – after being relocated to the breast.
During the second procedure, Dr. Asaadi will inject the harvested fat cells above and below the breast tissue, right under the skin and directly into the muscle. No fat cells are injected into the breast tissue. Natural Fat Tissue to the Breast is performed while the patient is in a semi-sitting position in order for Dr. Asaadi to ensure proper shaping of the breasts.
After Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast
Following Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast, patients can expect to experience some bruising and discomfort. Since the fat cells are injected, this procedure requires minimal incisions, significantly reducing the potential for scarring. Most of the discomfort patients experience following Natural Fat Transfer to the Breast is caused by the liposuction procedure and will fade in the days following the procedure.
