Information About BRAVA®

If you decide to undergo a breast augmentation or breast reconstruction using Dr. Hartog’s advanced fat transfer methods, you will need to use the BRAVA® device before your procedure to expand your breast tissue.* This innovative device not only creates the necessary room for your fat graft, but also improves circulation in your tissues, creating the ideal environment for your transferred fat.

How to Use BRAVA®

When you use BRAVA®to prepare for a fat transfer, it typically takes around 2-3 weeks for your breast tissue to sufficiently expand. Your breasts will become engorged similar to the way they expand during pregnancy. The more you wear BRAVA® prior to your scarless breast procedure, the more fat can be placed, with a higher survival rate. 

Below you will find links to information about how to use BRAVA® and what to expect from the process:

If you are scheduled with us to undergo fat transfer with the BRAVA® device, we usually recommend the use of a different pump than the small electrical pump that comes with the BRAVA® device known as the Sport Pump. We recommend a stronger pump which is rented separately known as the Turbo Pump. If you are scheduled for fat transfer and plan to use the Turbo pump, we will order it for you, and you must read and be familiar with our instructions on how to use the Turbo Pump.

* The use of BRAVA® in conjunction with fat transfer is presently considered an off-label use of the device by the FDA, pending ongoing studies and further approval. Presently the BRAVA® device is sold with FDA approval for breast enlargement without fat transfer.
