Fat Transfer: The Most Natural Reconstruction Method

Many surgeries use breast implants and complex tissue flap techniques to re-create the shape of your breasts after a mastectomy. Although this can be effective, breast implants are a foreign object inside of your body, and therefore introduce potential complications. Additionally, tissue flap techniques involve increased risks, and sometimes produce unnatural-looking results – especially if your breasts were treated with radiation.

To avoid these problems, Dr. Hartog uses fat grafting to naturally reconstruct your breasts without the need for implants or unpredictable tissue flap procedures. Breast reconstruction with fat transfer comes with several advantages, including:

  • No incisions, all grafting done simply with injection needles
  • No extra scarring
  • No implants and no large tissue flaps from other areas of the body
  • Improved sensation of the breasts
  • Faster recovery, and 100% outpatient
  • Your breasts look natural and feel more natural to the touch

We use the BRAVA® device to expand your breast tissue in preparation for breast reconstruction. This unique tissue expander increases the amount of circulation in your tissues, creating an ideal environment for the transferred fat, and also making room for a potentially larger reconstruction.

To help shape and lift the breasts, additional internal suture techniques such as the RAFT procedure, and the Refine Device, may also be used to further enhance the result with little or no visible scarring

*Fat grafting and suture suspension techniques are performed using only small needles for the procedures, thus the procedures will result in either no visible scars or possibly very small, almost invisible scars.
