Natural breast augmentation (enlargement) is an effective alternative to traditional breast implants. Using fat-transfer techniques, the breasts can be enhanced without the use of foreign implant materials.

This treatment is a surgical procedure, whereby one of our highly skilled surgeons utilises natural fat deposits found elsewhere in your body to enhance and increase the size of your breasts. The procedure involves two elements: first, liposuction techniques are used to remove unnecessary fat (typically from the waist, buttocks or thighs); second, this excess fat is then used to enhance and reshape the breasts. This technique is common among women who are unsatisfied with the texture of previous breast implants, or those who have undergone mastectomy.

Before undergoing natural breast augmentation, you will be invited to a consultation at the Cadogan Clinic to meet with one of our highly knowledgeable consultants. During this initial meeting, you will be able to ask questions and voice any concerns you may have, to ensure you feel comfortable and confident if you decide to proceed with surgery.

Whatever your personal reasons, Natural Breast Augmentation at the Cadogan Clinic will provide the leading UK consultants, techniques and facilities for your treatment. Our expert team is acutely aware that the appearance of your body can affect your confidence and everyday happiness, and as such we handle each case with sensitivity and discretion. You can rest assured your procedure, performed at our state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London clinic, will deliver the results you desire.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fat transfer is an advanced surgical treatment which involves harvesting and filtering unwanted fat cells through liposuction techniques, then reinjecting them to increase the natural contours of body, for example to reshape breasts.  This is most usually performed under either a local or general anaesthetic depending on the patient and surgeons’ preferences and suitability and can take 3 hours.

Following your fat transfer to breasts procedure you will have a waterproof dressing over your breasts which you will need to stay in place for around 10 days’ post-surgery and you may be given antibiotics to avoid infection.  Your consultant will advise wearing a support bra a few days per week after surgery and for buttocks you will have a dressing in situ for ten days.  Where the liposuction has been performed, you will most likely be required to wear a compression garment for around three weeks and avoid exercise for up to two weeks following your treatment.

Following fat transfer to the breasts you may have some bruising and swelling but this should subside within a couple of weeks.  Recovery time for fat transfer procedures to the body can depend on how many areas the initial liposuction was carried out on.  You may be bruised and swollen for 1-3 weeks and should avoid exercise during this time and you may wish to be off work for 1-2 weeks also.  The few days following your fat transfer augmentation you may feel some discomfort around the breasts and experience an aching sensation for a week or two following treatment - this is completely normal and will subside as will any bruising and swelling.

This treatment is particularly appealing due to the low risk it presents – a patients’ own tissue is used to reshape and re-contour their body, thus, the risk of infection is greatly reduced. Possible complications include the risks associated with the prescribed medication administered following a surgical procedure which your surgeon will outline thoroughly for you during your consultation.

Breast augmentation via fat transfer is a highly effective procedure to subtly boost the volume of the breasts and suitable patients will have enough fat from other parts of the body to transfer and, are not considering having children within the next year and do not require a breast uplift also.  For those who want a more significant increase in their bust size, we recommend a surgical breast augmentation with implants.  Your suitability for this procedure will be assessed during your initial consultation and examination.  The final result of your fat transfer to breast procedure will depend on your current breast size and the amount of fat that can be extracted to be re-distributed.

After fat transfer to your breasts you will notice results immediately - more evidently within the first few weeks after your treatment when any swelling and bruising have subsided.  The results will continue to improve over the next few months’ as your fat re-distributes itself and settles.  

Fat transfer to breasts starts from £6750, however this will depend on your particular case. This can only be determined during a consultation with your surgeon, and following that an accurate price can be quoted.

What to expect

Free Consultation with a Patient Advisor

We offer a free, no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our Patient Advisors. They will work with you to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve, talk you through the procedure and answer any questions you may have. If you decide that you would like to proceed to the next step and see a surgeon, your Patient Advisor will be happy to arrange this for you. At this point, you will be required to pay a consultation fee. 

Surgical Consultation

The next step is for you to meet your chosen surgeon at the Cadogan Clinic. Your surgeon will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you, your condition, and your expectations before making a recommendation and personalised treatment plan for you. You will then discuss the outcomes you can expect to see and ask any questions.

The Procedure

On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Cadogan Clinic by your Patient Advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anaesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.
