Fat transfer to the breasts is an increasingly common procedure that can add natural fullness, firmness, and contour to the breasts without the use of breast implants. As the procedure is performed using your own tissue, your breasts will look, feel and move naturally. This procedure eliminates the possible risks or the need for the future removal of breast implants, implant capsular contracture, and implant leak, or implant asymmetry.

By performing a fat transfer breast augmentation, you get the advantage of actually having breasts that are completely your own tissue and that can be precisely matched. Fat transfer to the breasts is also becoming a more common procedure for breast reconstruction in patients that have lost breast tissue or their complete breasts as a result of breast cancer.

Fat transfer to the breasts or fat transfer breast augmentation can generally increase the breast size by one or two cups. The fat is harvested from areas that generally seem to collect fat, as in the thighs, abdomen, and knees, as this resistant fat seems to be the most robust. The fat is then purified and precisely transferred to the breasts through very small incisions, being placed below, into, and above the pectoralis muscle, with care to avoid breast tissue as to not disrupt future mammograms.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
