Fat Transfer

My Fiancé is looking for a Dr in Philadelphia who can perform Breast augmentation fat transfer surgery. We are looking in the threads but can find any photos of the fat transfer before and after surgery. Can someone point us in the right direction?

Procedure: Breast Augmentation
Location: philadelphia, PA

The reason you are likely having trouble finding before and after images of fat grafting to the breasts is because fat grafting is rarely used as a stand alone procedure for breast augmentation. Fat grafting, when performed by a plastic surgeon with experience and expertise works. The results can be permanent. I use fat grafting almost daily in surgery with beautiful results. In the breasts, like the face, fat grafting can be permanent, but large volume fat grafting will not likely last and the results would be unpredictable. I use fat grafting to contour during breast augmentation procedure or to add balance and fullness to a breast lift.

If a surgeon does offer fat grafting alone for breast augmentation, my suggestion would be to view before and after photos at the six month and twelve month mark so you can observe the final result.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Unfortunately this website offers limited photographs and I would recommend seeking out others, such as Realself.com for assistance.
