There are quite a few things to think about when deciding on a route to take for breast augmentation.

Surgical breast enhancement can be a wonderful option for those looking for drastic results with room for downtime. However, surgery is not always the most ideal option for everyone.

What to Expect

Before, During, and After Breast Fat Transfer in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation

If you're interested in breast fat transfer, you'll first meet with a physician for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, capacity for downtime, desired augmentation results, and more. 

2. Review Your Treatment Plan.

Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the ideal approach for your breast fat transfer augmentation. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures to achieve the best possible results.

3. Harvest the Fat.

Once we've agreed upon mutual goals for the procedure, the first step is to harvest the fat for breast redistribution. We will discuss the harvest point during our initial consultation. Typically, we harvest fat from the thighs, back, buttocks, or abdomen in small quantities to use for breast fat transfer.

4. Fat Transfer.

For the breast fat grafting, we'll offer an anesthetic agent to reduce any potential discomfort. Patients usually handle the procedure with very little discomfort. Dr. Downey or Dr. Bullocks will use long, thin, hollow needles called cannulas to strategically inject the harvested fat directly into the treatment area, increasing the size of the breasts in a very natural and subtle way.

5. Recovery.

Breast fat transfer in Houston is a minimally invasive procedure that requires very little downtime. Patients are able to return to their normal routine within 24 hours of the procedure, making this one of the quickest and easiest ways to enhance the size of your breasts!

6. Follow Up.

Following your breast fat transfer Houston plastic surgeons at Heights Plastic Surgery are with you every step of the way, and we won't leave you on your own after your procedure. We always follow up with our patients to ensure they are healing well and enjoying the benefits of their newest aesthetic treatment.
