Many women today prefer subtle, natural-looking breast enhancement as well as a reduced risk of complications. Fat transfer breast augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the patient’s own fat to provide a small but noticeable increase in cup size. In Dr. Shuster’s capable hands, a fat transfer breast augmentation procedure can beautifully restore a rounded, feminine chest appearance while boosting self-confidence and expanding wardrobe options.
Recovery After Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
If your procedure was performed under general anesthesia, you will need to arrange for a ride home.
Recovery from fat transfer breast augmentation is minimal, with only about one week off work usually needed. You may need to wear a compression garment over your chest during this time and avoid submerging your breasts in water. Expect some swelling and tenderness, which will subside within a few weeks.
Please avoid strenuous exercise, constrictive bras, and sleeping on your stomach until we advise you that these activities are permissible.
