Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation New York City



For many women, the shape and size of their breasts are directly associated with their sense of femininity and confidence. Unfortunately, a woman’s breast size does not always depict their ideal size and contours. In such cases, breast augmentation has proven to be the go-to surgical procedure for women who desire an increase in breast size.

With advances in modern cosmetic surgery techniques, breast augmentation has evolved to incorporate the use of one’s natural fat to provide a natural enhancement. This technique is known as natural fat breast augmentation and is used by Dr. William Lao to help women achieve their ideal breast size.

Dr. Lao strives to offer natural-looking fat transfer breast augmentation results for his NYC patients and places patient safety at the forefront of his priorities.

What is Natural Fat Breast Augmentation?

Our NYC natural fat breast augmentation is a variation of the traditional breast augmentation procedure. Unlike the traditional method, the natural fat breast augmentation does not utilize saline or silicone breast implants. Instead, Dr. Lao will remove fat from one area of the body and use it to reshape and increase the size of the breasts.

Who are the Best Candidates for Natural Fat Breast Augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a useful alternative for women who desire a subtle, more natural enhancement to the size of their breasts. Ideal candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and have a sufficient amount of fat in other areas of the body that can be harvested. During a consultation, Dr. Lao will perform an examination of your body and discuss your medical history to determine if a fat transfer breast augmentation is the right procedure for you.

What are the Benefits of Natural Fat Breast Augmentation?

As one of the top breast augmentation surgeons who specialize in using natural fat in NYC, Dr. Lao has had the benefit of treating thousands of aesthetic patients. Below, we’ve included some of the top advantages of the surgery:

  • By using natural fat instead of implants, you’re choosing a more natural type of breast augmentation

  • The surgery will improve your self-confidence in the way you look and what you wear

  • Decrease fat from what part of your body

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting a fat transfer breast augmentation starts with education. By booking a consultation, we’ll schedule a time for you to come meet one-on-one with Dr. Lao in his surgical suite on 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Dr. Lao will provide a thorough assessment of your breasts and help you decide if this is the best solution for your aesthetic needs.

If you and Dr. Lao both feel this is the best option, surgery will be booked and we’ll provide you with pre and postoperative instructions. It’s vital that you follow the instructions as closely as possible as they are designed to help ensure optimal results and recovery for your fat transfer.

What to Expect on the Day of Natural Fat Breast Augmentation

The fat transfer breast augmentation procedure is relatively simple when compared to the traditional technique. To begin, a local anesthetic will be administered to the treatment area to help make the process more comfortable. Once it has taken effect, Dr. Lao will use liposuction to remove fat from one area of the body such as the thighs or stomach, and purify the fat to prepare it for injection into the breasts.

Fat Transfer vs. Breast Implants

While breast implants have been a popular breast augmentation option for many years with proven results, there are a few drawbacks that hold them back from perfection. Over time, you may eventually need a revision to replace the implants and there is a risk of complications arising such as capsular contracture, rippling, or implant rupture. A fat transfer breast augmentation is free from these issues. Since the fat is harvested from your own body, there is a decreased chance of risk. A fat transfer also provides permanent results that look and feel more natural.
