e safety and effectiveness of fat injections for cosmetic breast augmentation primarily due to a lack of research and concern that fat may calcify and obscure mammograms, be mistaken for cancer growths, or be re-absorbed by the body. But a new study presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Plastic Surgery 2009 conference, Oct. 23-27, in Seattle, found using liposuctioned fat for breast augmentation may be a viable option for some women. The study looked at 50 women, ages 17-63, who had 55 fat grafting procedures (5 women were grafted twice) to their breasts with fat taken from their upper thighs, etc. To help make room for the injected fat and to increase the grafts' survival rate, patients wore a bra-like (external) tissue expander device several weeks before and after surgery. Long-term follow-up on patients ranged from 9 months to 5 years, with an average follow-up of 3 years.

The authors found:

  • The procedure did not obscure mammography.
  • No suspicious breast masses, nodules, or lesions that might interfere with cancer detection were reported.
  • Excellent long term graft survival was achieved - graft survival averaged 85%.
  • Average increase in breast volume at 6-12 months was 210 ml.
  • Patients were pleased with the natural feel of their breasts and improved appearance of the liposuctioned areas.
  • Procedure can safely be performed in 1.5 hours.
  • Drawbacks included changes in breast volume were proportionate with BMI fluctuations and poor patient compliance with the use of the tissue expander device negatively affected breast volume.

By the Numbers:

Breast augmentation was the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in 2008, with more than 307,000 procedures performed, according to the ASPS. It's also the most commonly requested procedure among women.
