Understanding Breast Fat Transfers
When looking to understand how breast fat transfers work, we must first understand the two parts of the procedure. These two elements are liposuction and fat injection.

- And other areas
This procedure is often an added bonus as many people have tried to lose weight in these areas before through either exercise or dietary means. When undergoing a breast fat transfer, we manage to use your unwanted fat instead of discarding it.
The fat injection phase uses the fat that has been removed from a part of your body to volumize the breasts. Firstly, fat is removed from the other liquids that have been taken during the liposuction phase. After this, the fat is injected into each breast using fine needles.
