Getting a full and attractive chest is one of the most important features of femininity that many women strive for, and the process of breast augmentation with autologous fat injection is considered one of the latest techniques in the field of cosmetic surgery.
This procedure provides a safe and effective method to achieve an increase in breast size and shape naturally using fat extracted from other areas of the body. If you are considering breast augmentation with autologous fat injection, here is some information about this procedure with Dr. Mohamed El-Ghalban (Cosmetic and Body Contouring Surgeon, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, and Member of the Egyptian Society of Cosmetic Surgeons).
Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat Injection - What is it?
Breast augmentation with autologous fat injection is a surgical procedure aimed at increasing breast size using fat extracted from other areas of the patient's body. This technique is considered one of the modern and innovative methods in the field of cosmetic surgery.
In addition to improving breast size, the procedure can also enhance the overall shape and body proportion, as fat from other areas is used to achieve desired results.
Who is a suitable candidate for breast augmentation with autologous fat injection?
Breast augmentation with autologous fat injection is suitable for women who wish to increase the size of their breasts and improve their shape. However, the candidate should have an adequate amount of fat in other areas of her body for use in the augmentation process.
Additionally, the patient should have realistic expectations regarding the possible results and be able to commit to the recovery period and necessary care after the procedure.
The patient should be aware that breast augmentation with autologous fat injection is not suitable for women who desire a significant increase in breast size. The surgeon may recommend other procedures, such as the use of silicone implants, in cases requiring a significant size increase.
Preparation for Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat Injection
There are preparations that should be taken before undergoing breast augmentation with autologous fat injection. These preparations help ensure your safety and achieve good results. Some of the important steps include:
First, you need to have a clear conversation with the surgeon about your aspirations from the procedure, so that they can assist you in the best way possible.
The surgeon will evaluate your condition and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this type of procedure.
You should undergo all the necessary medical tests before the procedure to ensure a safe operation.
You may be asked to avoid certain medications and dietary supplements that could affect the surgery and clotting.
You should refrain from smoking before the procedure and during the expected recovery period, as smoking can affect wound healing and overall outcomes.

Steps of Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat Injection
Here is an overview of the steps involved in breast augmentation with autologous fat injection, although these steps may vary from patient to patient:
The patient is anesthetized either under general or local anesthesia, depending on their overall health condition, the type of procedure, and the surgeon's vision.
Fat Harvesting Phase: Fat is harvested from specific areas of your body using liposuction techniques. Thin tubes are gently inserted through small incisions in the skin to gently collect the fat. At Dr. Mohamed El-Ghalban's center, advanced techniques like VASER liposuction are used to facilitate the process.
Fat Processing Phase: After extracting the fat, it is processed to remove impurities and unwanted tissues. The fat is purified to obtain pure fat cells and prepare them for injection.
Fat Injection Phase: The processed fat is gently injected into specific areas of the breast to achieve the desired increase in volume. The surgeon injects the fat in multiple layers within the breast to distribute it evenly and achieve natural-looking results while considering the breast's capacity to accommodate the injected fat.
Once the procedure is done, the results will be monitored, and the development of the breasts after the injection will be followed. In most cases, you can notice the initial results of the procedure immediately after the injection.
The Most Important 7 Postoperative Tips for Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat Injection
After undergoing breast augmentation with autologous fat injection, here are some important tips for the postoperative period. Following these tips will help you recover quickly and maintain the results. Some of the key tips include:
You must strictly follow the instructions provided by your treating surgeon after the operation. These instructions will include guidelines for wound care, the use of medical products, and prescribed medications.
Avoid strenuous physical activities and excessive stress on the breast area.
You may be instructed to wear a supportive bra during the postoperative period to support the breast and reduce slippage and swelling. It is important to adhere to wearing the bra as recommended by the surgeon.
The body needs time to heal after the procedure, so you should take periods of rest and relaxation and avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities during the early period after the surgery.
Maintain the cleanliness of the wound and follow the surgeon's instructions regarding daily wound care.
Make sure to keep up with medical follow-up appointments, as these appointments allow the surgeon to examine breast developments and ensure proper recovery.
In case of any unusual symptoms or issues, you should contact the surgeon immediately.
Important: Remember that each case is individual, and the recovery and specific guidelines may vary from case to case. Therefore, you should consult the surgeon and adhere to their instructions regarding wound care and the recovery period after the surgery.
Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat Injection - Why is it the Best?
You may be wondering what makes autologous fat injection techniques widely used in many cosmetic procedures, especially in breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation with autologous fat injection offers several advantages, including:
Natural and long-lasting results: Your own body fat is used to increase breast size, providing natural and harmonious results that are in line with your body shape. These results are also considered permanent, as the injected fat remains in place.
Improves body proportion: The procedure can improve body proportion by utilizing fat harvested from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen or buttocks, allowing for overall body balance and harmony.
Reduces risks of allergies or rejection: The use of the patient's own fat reduces the risks of allergies or rejection.
Minimal scars and incisions: Thin tubes are used to harvest and inject the fat into the breast, minimizing scars and incisions associated with the procedure.
Typically, the recovery period after breast augmentation with autologous fat injection is shorter compared to other breast augmentation procedures, allowing you to return to routine activities relatively quickly while following the surgeon's guidelines.
All of these advantages make choosing breast augmentation with autologous fat injection a sound decision, as it offers numerous benefits and acceptable results. However, it is important to note that achieving these results requires selecting an experienced surgeon.
