Fat Grafting for Breast and Buttock

Fat Grafting for Breast and Buttock in Delhi

Fat Grafting or Fat Transfer is a procedure used to augment areas such as breasts and buttocks to give them the desired volume. It involves taking fat from an area of the body that has an excess of it and transferring it to the area that needs it.

Fat Grafting for Breast

Who can go for this procedure?

  • Healthy women with a normal mammography
  • Non-smokers
  • Someone looking at an enlargement of the breasts or buttocks, or restoration of breasts to pre-pregnancy size and shape
  • Someone who has adequate fat for transfer

How does the procedure work?

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves three steps:

  • The first step is harvesting fat from pre-selected areas such as the abdomen, thighs or hips. This is done using minimally invasive liposuction with a special cannula that is designed to limit damage to the fat cells.
  • The next step is isolating and purifying the fat cells.
  • The final step is injecting these fat cells into the desired area- the breasts or buttocks that need to be enhanced.

The procedure typically takes 1-2 hours for each area. At RG Aesthetics fat grafting to breasts and buttocks is done by a specialized technique termed EVL (Expansion Vibration Lipofilling).

Expansion Vibration Lipofilling

In expansion vibration lipofilling, 4- to 5-mm angled basket cannulas are used and attached to a power-assisted liposuction unit. Power-assisted tunnelization in a multi-directional and multilayered fashion is used to prepare a matrix at the recipient site. This ensures maximal space for fat grafting and limits the size of the injected fat lobules. The tubing attached to the cannula is used as a conduit to propel fat out the tip of the cannula. Fat flow is induced by the use of a peristaltic pump from a canister filled with fat. In this manner, simultaneous filling, expansion, and shaping could be performed uniformly.

Expansion vibration lipofilling allows for recipient-site expansion by using basket cannulas, creating a wider potential space and ability to separate and equalize tissue. The larger diameter of the cannula makes its larger, blunter tip less likely to perforate a venous structure. Fixed-angle cannula can be rotated to increase cannula excursion and efficiency using fewer passes, and also allows it to be oriented superficially to minimize deeper tissue penetration. Concurrently, fat is deposited into the expanded area with the basket cannula, effectively serving as a stent followed by the immediate deposition of graft to occupy the stented space. In addition, the use of vibration (oscillations) allow homogeneous distribution of fat lobules. More thorough and dispersed fat translates to more surface area contact between grafted fat lobules and recipient tissue leading to greater fat survival.

Expansion vibration lipofilling is a new technique using existing instrumentation in a novel way to achieve better volume control and shape change in large-volume fat transplantation.

Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants. Excess fat is removed with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the buttocks. It has been seen that a large volume of donor fat is needed to achieve a pleasing gluteal shape. Depending on the body size and gluteal dimensions of the patient, injection volumes range from 450 to 1100 mL or more per side. Traditional techniques for injection of such large volumes of fat require long operating times and are associated with surgeon fatigue and morbidities in the patient. Thus, came the concept of Expansion Vibration Lipofilling.

Why opt for a fat transfer?

  • Fat transfer is the most natural augmentation method since the fat being used is from your own body.
  • You don’t have to worry about having a foreign body inside you.
  • You save yourself the concerns about the complications arising out of implants.
  • It serves a dual purpose of helping you get rid of some of the unwanted fat from areas such as your thighs or abdomen by using that for the proc
