So Natural, Because It Comes From You
While you are considering your breast augmentation options, you should know about a fat transfer procedure that is gaining popularity. During fat transfer breast augmentation Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schusterman will use liposuction to remove your fat and inject it into your breasts, giving you an entirely natural feel and look.
What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure
At our office in Houston fat transfer breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis, and you will be under general anesthesia. Dr. Schusterman will use liposuction to remove the fat, and then inject it into the breasts with a micro-needle. There is no need to make an incision along your breasts, which means less downtime in recovery. Once your breasts reach the desired size, shape, and volume, you are bandaged up and wheeled to recovery.
How do I know if Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation is right for me?
In addition to breast augmentation, the fat transfer is an added benefit to those bothersome areas of fat around your body. A fat transfer breast augmentation may be right for you for the following reasons:
- If you have had significant weight loss.
- If you prefer to avoid synthetic implants.
- If you have lost breast volume due to pregnancy.
- If your breasts have become deflated over the years.
- If you have ample areas of fat from other places that could benefit from the fat transfer and reduce their size and appearance.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Recovery
After your surgery, you can return to your normal activities within a few days to a week. The downtime is considerably less compared to more traditional breast augmentations that require tubes for drainage and up to four weeks of recovery.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Results
While there is less downtime and scarring because you are using a fat transfer instead of an implant, the results are not as permanent as silicone or saline implants and may change over time with age and weight.

Fat Transfer FAQs
During your consultation, Dr. Schusterman will determine areas with enough fat to do an effective fat transfer. Typically, the fat transfer comes from the tummy, thighs, or buttocks.
Breast augmentations are considered cosmetic surgery and are not covered by insurance. It is always best to talk with your insurance provider for more details. However, Dr. Schusterman does offer payment and financing options for your convenience.
You will not have any scars on your breasts because the fat transfer is performed with a microneedle. The small incision made for the liposuction may leave a tiny scar, but it’s not likely. Plus, Dr. Schusterman is very discreet in placing incisions not publicly viewable and is typically covered with underwear or a swimsuit.
A significant benefit of using your own fat to increase your breast size is that your fat won’t need to be replaced or removed. Your fat becomes a permanent part of your breast, giving you the fuller and shapelier appearance you were after.
