Breast augmentation by lipofilling (fat transplantation)
Fat is harvested in small pieces by liposculpture. The donor sites of choice are the natural fat deposits where volume reduction may be of aesthetic benefit, such as the waistline, the abdomen, the hips, the inner aspects of the thighs and the knees. When necessary, fat may also be aspirated homogeneously from the anterior and lateral aspects of the thighs.
For lipofilling the fat is filtered and reinjected under the skin of the breast and below the breasts in the pectoral muscle, through stab incisions of only a few millimetres.
