Which surgeons perform breast fat grafting?
I am skinny and I am looking for a surgeon who can perform primary breast fat grafting. I am female and my body fat is 17%
Hi Jess There are a number of specialist trained plastic Surgeons who are educated and skilled at breast enlargement using fat grafting. If you were to include information in your question about the city you live in, you may well find one in your region. Alternatively, you can ring ASAPS directly and obtain information. There was an International Meeting about fat grafting in October last year which a lot of Australian and New Zealand surgeons attended and presented at. ASAPS may be able to inform you as to who amongst those surgeons is in your region. John.
Hi there Jessica and thanks for posting a question.
If you are skinny with minimal body fat, then fat grafting to your breasts is not for you. You do need quite a bit of fat to make a significant difference in breast volume and shape and if there are not many areas to harvest fat from then you would likely end up with contour deformity problems in the areas where the fat is taken from. In addition it will probably not make a huge difference to your breast volume. So all in all, it doesnt sound like the right operation for you.
I hope that helps
Hi Jessica It sounds like you have minimal body fat and probably agree with Richard that you may not be suitable for the procedure. However, some very slender patients do have pockets in the "love handle" area in the lower back. If you can grab handfuls of fat in this area, then you may have enough. The important thing is to have modest expectations of how much volume change you can achieve when you are so slender.
