Are you looking to reshape or resize your breasts, but you’re not sure how you’re going to do it? If you haven’t considered breast augmentation with fat transfer from our Chicago, IL plastic surgeon, you might want to! This surgical procedure is a more natural alternative to adding implants in your breasts, which makes it a great option for many patients. Read on to learn more about breast augmentation with fat transfer in Chicago and whether you may be a good candidate for the treatment.
Breast augmentation with fat transfer is a fairly straight-forward procedure. Using advanced liposuction techniques, Dr. Irvin Wiesman will remove fat from an area of your body that’s determined beforehand, such as your thighs, abdomen, and love handles. Once it’s removed, it will be strategically injected into the breasts to alter their size, volume, and shape. The procedure itself is an outpatient procedure, so you’ll return home the same day.

Before your procedure, you’ll meet with your plastic surgeon to discuss the results you’d like to achieve from breast augmentation in Chicago and fat transfer, and they’ll be able to make a plan to help meet those goals.
