You have realistic expectations about the outcome of this procedure
During your initial Phoenix fat transfer breast augmentation consultation with Dr. LaBarbera, he will listen to your concerns, examine your breasts and other body areas, then let you know whether this treatment is ideal for you. If you lack enough fat in other parts of your body to perform a successful fat grafting augmentation, Dr. LaBarbera may recommend that you go with implant-based augmentation instead. The same goes for patients who desire a significant increase in size, a cleavage, or profound roundness at the top of the breasts.

HOW FAT TRANSFER BREAST AUGMENTATION IS PERFORMED
Natural breast enhancement is an outpatient procedure. Dr. LaBarbera will start by marking the donor areas where liposuction will be performed. He will then utilize a piece of specialized equipment known as a cannula to break down and extract excess fat from the donor areas, which may include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, or upper arms. The next step is to process the harvested fat in order to remove unwanted blood and impurities that could cause infection. Once this is done, Dr. LaBarbera will create tiny incisions around each breast and inject small volumes of fat cells to achieve the desired increase in size. Incisions will then be closed. The breasts are usually not dressed to avoid constriction of the freshly inserted fat. However, parts of the body where fat is harvested via liposuction will be covered in a special compression garment to facilitate proper healing. The duration of autologous fat transfer can range from between 2-4 hours depending on the amount of fat that needs to be transferred.
RECOVERY TIME OF FAT TRANSFER BREAST AUGmentation
It may take up to 8 weeks to recover from a fat transfer breast augmentation surgery. Following breast augmentation with fat grafting, patients are allowed to go home to continue with recovery. Make sure to have a friend or family member who can drive you home from the hospital as well as help out with basic chores. Dr. LaBarbera will prohibit you from wearing tight undergarments and bras for at least 7 weeks. Compression garments applied in the liposuctioned areas should stay in place until the surgeon says otherwise. While swelling and bruising can be expected as a natural reaction to the surgery, Dr. LaBarbera will prescribe appropriate medication to increase your comfort level. The majority of Dr. LaBarbera’s natural breast enhancement patients are able to resume regular work within a week. It may take up to 8 weeks before you are able to engage in rigorous activities.
FAT TRANSFER BREAST AUGMENTATION COST
Fat transfer breast augmentation price varies from patient to patient. The particular cost will be influenced by factors such as the amount of fat that needs to be transferred, surgeon’s fees, and facility fees, among others. Health insurance typically does not cover fat grafting breast surgery that is needed for cosmetic purposes. Dr. LaBarbera performs this procedure in Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, and Gilbert, AZ in accredited medical facilities. He works with a board certified anesthesiologist and highly qualified support staff who deeply care about the safety and well-being of their patients.
