Dr. Chiodo performs a highly personalized breast fat grafting surgery after a thorough evaluation. During your consultation, he actively listens to your goals and concerns, reviews your medical history, examines your breast and anatomy, and asks about your breast volume/ size expectations. He will also determine if you need a breast lift with your breast fat grafting procedure — a breast lift might be necessary if there’s considerable sagging.
Your breast fat grafting is performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Chiodo makes a small incision at the donor site, such as the tummy, lower back, or thighs. The incision serves as an entry point, through which the surgeon inserts a specialized hollow cannula that loosens and suctions away excess fat cells. The harvested fat cells are purified and drawn into a syringe.
Dr. Chiodo carefully administers the fat injections into targeted areas on your breasts. The number of injections depends on your specific goals. Each fat grafting procedure enhances the breasts by one cup size, so you may need multiple breast fat grafting sessions for optimal results. Furthermore, some of the fat cells may not survive in the new location, so the results will take a few months to settle and finalize.
