Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Dr. Mendieta (M.D., F.A.C.S.) is a board-certified plastic surgeon located in Miami, FL who specializes in fat transfer to breast procedures. After completing his aesthetic surgery fellowship at Harvard University, Dr. Mendieta lectures all over the world and trains other Doctors on fat transfer breast augmentation procedures and his unique “Mendieta Technique.”
As with any surgery, the health of the patient before the procedure will be heavily evaluated. The breast augmentation physician will look at a patient Medical history, current medications, and lifestyle habits before making the decision to operate. Typical breast augmentation with fat transfer candidates include:
Healthy Women with robust lifestyles. Women with plenty of fat cells available to be transferred to the breasts. Women with normal mammography or those considering silicone and saline implants.
There are several benefits to fat transferring into breast:
The Fluids and Cell harvested are your own natural materials and readily accepted by your body, unlike silicone or saline. Removing fat from one area of the body through liposuction and transferring it to another area of the body can increase your overall appearance and shape. The fat transfer procedure allows the physician to shape and contour the fat cells in a fashion able to be fit to each patient. Scarring is minimal because incisions are microscopic. Utilizing breast implants and fat grafting allows for an even more natural appearance once the treatment is finished.
A breast augmentation via fat transfer can yield natural results for those seeking moderate increases in volume and size. Fat is taken from donor sites, then purified and then reinserted into the breast so that Dr. Mendieta can create the look you’re seeking.
