Natural Breast Fat Transfer available
in our Melbourne Clinic
Using a technique that he has refined since 2003, Dr Topchian is able to safely remove fat from where you don’t want it – and transfer it to enlarge the breasts.
Essentially it is a modified version of liposuction, during which fat cells (adipocytes) are carefully and gently removed from typical areas like abdomen, thighs, love handles and then purified and concentrated, to be transferred to the breasts. There will be a natural absorption of about half of the fat that is initially injected into the breasts, however after three months the fat that remains should be long term.
With the current international concerns around some types of breasts implants, many women are looking for a completely natural alternative. By using your own tissue there is no chance of rejection or other potential complications, and the breasts look and feel completely natural.
Whilst the technique is reliable and safe it is not a complete substitute for breast implants because the degree of enlargement is more subtle than can be achieved with an implant.
Other parts of your body that your own fat can be moved to
In the past few years the effectiveness of this technique has improved, and now patients are becoming aware of the possibility of moving fat from an unwanted part of the body, to an area that they want enhanced – like the face, breasts or buttocks. This method of permanently transferring fat means no foreign materials are left in the body, and the fat should feel completely natural – because it is. It is your own tissue.
Since 2003 Dr Topchian has been refining the fat transfer technique, with each step of the complex process being analysed, and optimised, to ensure the best possible result for patients. This includes the use of healing lasers both for preparation for surgery, and in the post-operative period. Tiny instruments are used to delicately transfer the fragile fat cells to their new home and give them the best chance of survival there.
In order to consider this procedure, patients need to have adequate fat to harvest – preferably in a difficult to shift location so that it is the last area lost in case of losing weight. The amount of fat that can be successfully transferred depends on many factors, and includes:
- Age and general state of health
- Blood supply in the area being transferred to (recipient area)
- Tightness or looseness of the tissues in the recipient area
