Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Newport Beach

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure

Some women are hesitant to enhance their breasts because they do not want an implant. A safe & effective alternative to an implant, is a fat transfer breast augmentation which can also be referred to as a natural breast enhancement because it utilizes the fat that is harvested from liposuction, typically from your abdomen, flanks, back or thighs, and is injected into your breasts. Because only about 50% of the harvested fat will survive, it is important to know that this procedure may require additional surgeries to reach your desired result and because as we age, to help keep your improved shape. You can typically increase your breast size by approximately 1 cup size at a time. As with any surgery, there are risks involved such as such as:

  • Cysts
  • Infection
  • Microcalcification
  • Your fat cells not surviving

Overall, fat transfer breast augmentation has a fairly high satisfaction rate as long as expectations are understood. Dr. Champion will review your questions and concerns at your consultation as well as your pre-operative appointment.

Who is a Candidate for a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation is a natural alternative to a breast augmentation to softly increase your breast size. The ideal candidate for this procedure is seeking a more subtle enhancement of up to a cup size and has enough fat to harvest in order to achieve the best result. Candidates must be in good health, not smoke and have clear expectations.


While scarring is none to minimal, you may experience some bruising and swelling. We ask that you do not do any strenuous exercise/activity for a few weeks and avoid putting pressure on your breasts to help the fat survive. It is important to come to your follow up appointments so Dr. Champion can go over any questions you may have as you are healing.
