Introduction to Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

While one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in the world, Breast Augmentation with implants may not be for everyone. Even though most results will look natural, they don’t all feel natural. If you’re looking to have slightly larger breasts without the use of implants, a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation in Miami, FL could be perfect for you. Dr. Michael Keyes at Celebrity Plastics specializes in breast augmentation using fat transfer and can help deliver the results you are looking for.

What is a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

A Far Transfer Breast Augmentation is a surgical option for women who want a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results. Fat transfer breast augmentation uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. There are no silicone implants or other synthetic materials used in the surgery!

The overall effect of a fat transfer breast augmentation is to make the breast appear fuller and plumper. Depending on your desired outcome of the final cup size, for most surgeries, just a few hundred milliliters of fat will be inserted into the breasts to change the overall silhouette and cup size.

What are the benefits of a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

There are a handful of major benefits to a Miami Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation, including:

  • Breasts have a natural look and feel
  • Enhanced cleavage in the areas that you want the most (we can place fat in customized locations)
  • Fat is removed from your belly, hips, back, legs, or arms, giving your body a leaner appearance
  • Clothing fits better
  • No risk of an implant hardening or rupturing
  • Will not require revision surgery every 10 – 15 years, unlike implants
  • Fat integrates into your native tissue, whereas implants will always be a foreign body

Who are the best candidates for the Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation procedure?

You might be a great candidate for a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation in Miami if you have some of the following characteristics:

  • Close to their ideal body weight
  • Have enough body fat for the procedure
  • In overall good health
  • Maintain realistic expectations
  • Nonsmoker

For any major surgery that is performed to alter your physical appearance for aesthetic reasons, it is important to make this choice for yourself, not anyone else.

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting a fat transfer breast augmentation in Miami is to schedule a consultation. During this session, Dr. Keyes will explain what the surgery involves, assess your body for a natural-looking breast augmentation and have an appropriate amount of excess fat to use, and finally, determine whether you are the right candidate for this procedure. Your consultation session is also your opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions you have.

Upon completion of the assessment, Dr. Keyes will create your surgical plan. Our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your procedure date, provide you with instructions on how to make the most out of your procedure, and confirm the total price.

What to expect on the day of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation surgery

When you arrive for your surgery, Dr. Keyes will walk you through the steps of the procedure. You will then be administered general anesthesia to minimize discomfort and alleviate any pain felt from the surgery.

The next step of the fat transfer breast augmentation is Liposuction. Fat is harvested from a few different areas of the body, which Dr. Keyes will discuss in detail during your consultation and assessment. Once removed, the fat will be purified by placing it into a centrifuge to separate it from any undesirable materials. Once the fat is ready, it is placed into a cannula, ready for insertion.

The final step of this procedure is to inject the purified fat into the areas of the breast that you determined in your consultation with Dr. Keyes. Fat will be injected at various points and density of the breasts to accommodate for when fat naturally processes out of the body. The amount of fat harvested and injected will compensate for this occurrence.

Once the procedure is complete, you will be taken into a recovery room for the anesthesia to wear off.

Procedure timeline


The first step to getting your fat transfer breast augmentation surgery is to contact Celebrity Plastics and schedule a consultation through our patient coordinator.


During your consultation with Dr. Keyes, he will assess your goals and examine the shape of your breasts. You will discuss what the surgery involves, and the areas of donor fat that will be extracted for your breast augmentation. Dr. Keyes will explain all the potential risks and long-term results of a fat transfer breast augmentation so that you can make an informed decision.

Pre-operative preparation

Before your surgery, you will be given instructions from Dr. Keyes to prepare you for the procedure. This may involve avoiding blood thinners and fasting for a certain amount of time. Depending on the individual case, he may also ask you to get lab work or a mammogram. It is important to follow the pre-operative guidelines.


On the day of your surgery, Dr. Keyes will explain the process and the equipment he will be using. The first step will be to administer anesthesia. Next, Dr. Keyes will make a targeted incision which is used to extract the fat, and then process it for use in the augmentation. Once the fat is ready for transfer, Dr. Keyes will make an incision in the breasts, and inject the fat into the areas determined in your consultation. The final step is to close the incision.


Dr. Keyes will apply bandages and give you a medical support bra to wear for a few weeks. You will be advised on the types of pain medication to help manage post-surgical pain and discomfort. You will also be advised to avoid strenuous activity and showering for a period of time, and instructed on ways to daily monitor and clean your incision.

Post-operative appointments

There will be a series of follow-up appointments where Dr. Keyes will monitor your progress and healing. For a few weeks, you will be expected to continue wearing the support bra. Your follow-up appointments will allow Dr. Keyes to determine when you can resume regular activities such as exercise and showering, and when your bandages can be removed.
