Is fat grafting suitable for everyone?
Basically we have all fat which can be taken out. However, few patients have a very low BMI, so that not enough fat can be removed. Basically you must know that not all of the fat “heals“, i.e. “survives” on the spot. Some of it is broken down and metabolised by the body. Therefore, for my breast augmentation with autologous fat, at least 2 operations must be planned. To improve the survival of the fat, there is a method to take from your own blood cells (PRP or platelets) and add to the fat like a “fertilizer”. This PRP will make your breasts bigger without you having to have more than 2 operations.
Aesthetic breast augmentation or breast reconstruction?
The fat offers an excellent opportunity for natural breast augmentation but it can also do much more. If a part of the breast is missing after breast cancer surgery or the breast is severely deformed, this can be very stressful for women. Often the self-confidence to show yourself in public or in front of the mirror is missing.
There is a simple solution to correct the shape of the breast with a few small operations. For this purpose, your autologous fat tissue is removed in the same gentle manner and placed in the area of the defect. This gives your breasts a feminine shape again and at the same time makes them softer. The costs of these operations are partially covered by your health insurance. If you are interested, I would be happy to advise you in my office.

How much of the fat remains in the injected region?
Fat grafting ensures very natural results. However, not all of the transplanted fat remains in place. A part is broken down and digested by your body in the first 3 months. So it is possible that during this time the desired volume is reduced a little bit. To prevent this I use a special method of “enrichment”. Here I add a part of your previously drawn blood (PRP), after processing the fat. This enrichment with PRP allows me to achieve a significantly higher healing rate of the fat to be transplanted.
Where is the fat taken from?
Autologous fat can be taken from all parts of the body where there is enough. As a rule, the inner thighs or the lower abdomen are very well suited for this.
How much fat is taken?
For a fat grafting in the facial area one needs little fat, so that the region from which we help ourselves does not really become slimmer. Breast augmentation with autologous fat requires a “relatively” large amount of fat per side, so that operations are comparable to aesthetic liposuction. This means that two operations are performed simultaneously, liposuction and fat grafting.
When can I do sports again?
After fat grafting, the fat needs some rest. Jumping sports or a lot of pressure should be avoided, especially in the first 2 weeks after the operation.
