Have you ever considered increasing your breast size but felt uneasy about implants? You’re not alone. If saline and silicone implants aren’t appealing to you, there’s another option worth considering: using your body fat.

As a writer, I was intrigued to explore this topic because, to be honest, I’d only heard of fat transfers for other parts of the body. The concept behind fat transfer breast augmentation (FTBA) is straightforward, but I sought expert opinions to better understand this surgical procedure. FTBA involves using your own body fat to enhance breast size and shape without the use of implants or foreign materials. According to Chamata, “On average, one can expect approximately a one-cup size increase in breast size with this technique.” However, Williams notes that the procedure can be repeated for a more substantial enhancement.

This technique requires liposuction from another area of the body, like the thighs or abdomen, explains Ramanadham. The harvested fat is then injected into the breasts to improve size, shape, symmetry, and fill any contour depressions or concavities. In 2022, liposuction was the leading cosmetic procedure, with breast augmentation in third place, so it’s not surprising that this implant-free alternative has gained traction.
