Breast augmentation, a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, constitutes a primary focus of Charles Chalekson, MD, Inc., led by our esteemed board-certified plastic surgeon. We specialize in providing a diverse array of breast enhancement procedures tailored to meet the unique requirements of each patient.
Within the realm of breast augmentation in San Luis Obispo County, we offer a refined technique known as fat transfer breast augmentation. This innovative approach involves the utilization of purified adipose tissue from other areas of the body to achieve a modest yet natural increase in breast size, thereby minimizing the risk of complications. To gain a comprehensive understanding of this procedure or to arrange a comprehensive consultation, we encourage you to engage with our team of esteemed aesthetic experts.
Fat transfer breast augmentation encompasses a meticulous process that begins with liposuction, extracting fat cells from select regions such as the hips, abdomen, thighs, and love handles. After purification, these harvested fat cells are strategically injected into the breasts, imparting volume and creating a soft and natural appearance. By utilizing the patient’s own tissue instead of implants, this approach ensures outcomes that are remarkably authentic.
In addition to yielding results that exude natural beauty, fat transfer breast augmentation in San Luis Obispo County offers an array of advantages, including:
Beyond the scope of enhancing breast size, natural fat breast augmentation can address various concerns, such as mild to moderate breast asymmetry, the restoration of volume lost due to the aging process or childbirth, as well as the filling of concave areas resulting from lumpectomies or injuries
The results obtained through breast augmentation using fat transfer are enduring. However, it should be noted that some of the transferred fat cells may be reabsorbed by the body. To compensate for this, Dr. Chalekson often performs overfilling during the procedure.
The healing process typically requires approximately three months, during which any remaining fat will become permanently integrated into the breast tissue. It is worth mentioning that the size of fat cells can fluctuate in response to changes in body weight, potentially impacting the longevity of the results.
Sustaining the desired outcomes necessitates leading a healthy lifestyle and maintaining stable weight. In certain cases, an additional fat transfer may be recommended if substantial weight loss occurs or if the patient wishes to further augment their breast volume.
To be considered an ideal candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation in San Luis Obispo County, individuals should generally be in good overall health, nonsmokers, and without any uncontrolled medical conditions. Additionally, candidates should possess stable body weight, have sufficient excess fat available for harvesting, exhibit good skin elasticity, and possess a thorough understanding of the limitations and potential concerns associated with fat transfers. Negative mammogram within the last year is also recommended.
During the initial consultation, our experienced team will attentively assess your aesthetic goals and unique anatomical characteristics, allowing us to tailor a treatment plan that best aligns with your individual needs. In certain instances, alternative or supplementary procedures may be recommended, such as a breast lift [mastopexy] to address sagging in conjunction with a traditional breast augmentation for patients seeking size goals beyond the range of fat transfer.
