I'm interested in a fat transfer to my breasts. I have 2 questions about this:
1) can fat be taken from multiple body parts for this procedure? (e.g. thighs, knees, and arms)
2) I've read breast fat transfers increase cup size by up to 1, but could this be increased by multiple fat transfer + breast lift procedures to keep adding volume while maintaining shape?
Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Yes fat can be harvested from various body areas to be used for your breasts. I agree that a single fat transfer session offers improvement of approximately a cup size but can be redone to achieve your ultimate desired size. Hope this helps.
Thanks for your question! Yes, fat can be harvested from multiple locations. On average with each session of fat grafting, you retain scout 40-60% of fat that’s grafted. You may need multiple sessions to achieve your goal.
Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine which procedures are best to achieve your goals.
Yes, I usually take fat from anywhere where there is fat to harvest. Then, I purify it and inject it. You are right that only one cup size can be increased but yes, you could do it multiple times and it could then increase it more.

Yes, fat can be taken from ore than one area at the same time. Depending on your breast size, skin laxity, and other factors, one cup size increase may be possible. It may take two procedures in some cases.
Fat transfer is an accepted technique to enlarge breasts although it is less predictable then augmentation with an implant. Fat can be harvested from multiple areas as needed and the procedure can be repeated as desired, providing there is adequate fat for transfer. Your surgeon can provide you with your options and explain the pros and cons of each approach. Best of Luck Dr Harrell
