The demand for Breast Augmentation with fat transfer had increased significantly over the years. The main reason behind why fat injections to the breast attract so much attention is that the transferred fat belongs to the patient’s natural fat tissue. The fact that regardless of being biologically compatible, a foreign object is placed in the body within breast prosthesis that creates a prejudice against breast augmentation with prosthesis with some patients despite all successful results and patient satisfaction. Stem cell and adipose studies that are conducted in the last 10 to 20 years have once again shown how valuable adipose tissue is in plastic operations. The discovery that adipose tissue which was seen excess in the body and is a biological substance with its rich stem cell content has made a breakthrough in plastic surgery.
It is revolutionary to separate the rich stem cell content from the fat cells obtained by liposuction and to use this magnificent material in the areas needed (removal of facial wrinkles, facial rejuvenation, collapsed scars, butt, breast and leg shaping). It has been observed that the blending of the stem cells obtained from the fat taken from the regional excess is an ideal filler that can be used to add volume to any other part of the body. The fat permanence rate, which was 35-40% in the areas where fat injection was used in the past, can now go beyond this by adding stem cells to 83% using only Vaser liposuction. In addition to fullness, stem cells are also beneficial with their restorative properties in that area.
Today, adipose tissue, which has intensive medical use in many subjects, is used as an alternative to silicone for breast augmentation in “suitable patients” or together with silicone breast prosthesis, helping the results to be much more successful. The main advantages of fat injection to the breast are providing a smooth transition especially in the transition areas of the breast prosthesis, camouflaging the prosthesis edges and fulfilling this task in areas where additional fullness is desired.
Fat injection into the breast is not used to make a very small breast suddenly become a normal or a large breast. However, it can make breasts that are smaller or slightly smaller than normal to become normal or a little more shaped and large even.
