I am interested in having fat transfer to my breasts.

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 17 August 2013


I am interested in having fat transfer to my breasts. I live in Australia but I can come for a consultation in September. Can I please email through photos to see if I have enough fat to donate, as I am quite thin?


I would be happy to have a look at the photographs. In general terms, the donor site that I tend to favour is the waistline or flanks, as it typically provides a reasonable volume of fatty tissue even in slimmer girls.

The abdomen is usually not a great source of fatty tissue for breast augmentation.

With regards to fat transfer, you also need to appreciate that it will have its limitations in terms of how much augmentation you can achieve in one session, even when there is sufficient donor.
