Breast correction with autologous fat and stem cells allows to achieve a harmonious breast shape in case of asymmetries, pronounced differences in size, and breast deformities (e.g., tubular breast). Breast deformities often cause those affected a great deal of suffering. Stem cell-enriched autologous fat can usually help. Depending on the extent of the deformity, one or more treatment sessions may be required.
At a Glance
- Surgery duration: 2 to 4 hours (outpatient)
- Anesthesia: Exclusively local anesthesia (tumescent anesthesia)
- Sport: Microcannulas: After 1 week at the earliest (depending on the sport)
Regular cannulas: After 4 weeks at the earliest (depending on the sport)
- Normal social activities: After a few days
- Preliminary examinations: Blood test and sonography/mammography/MRI, further examinations depending on the patient’s state of health
- Compression garments: Microcannulas: 1 week
Regular cannulas: 6 to 8 weeks
- Incapacity to work: 1 to 2 days (may vary from case to case)
- Check-ups: To be arranged on an individual basis
When you have made the decision to have a breast correction with stem cell-enriched autologous fat performed, after an in-depth advice and medical consultation, schedule an appointment with us at a date of your choice.
Surgery is carried out on an outpatient basis exclusively using local anesthesia and takes approx. 2 to 4 hours. The autologous fat required for the breast correction is obtained by liposuction. Liposculpture is a special form of liposuction. This method is carried out by hand in a gentle way. We never use suction machines or scalpels.
Microcannulas with a diameter of 1.0 to 2.5 millimeters are used for liposuction or alternatively, conventional regular cannulas with a diameter of 3.0 millimeters upwards. Experience has shown that microcannulas have to be used on very slim women to harvest sufficient fat.
The after photo shows the result actually achieved by the treatment. To protect the anonymity of the depicted person individual physical characteristics (e.g., moles, tattoos) might have been removed. Results may vary from patient to patient. Please note that in medicine generally no guarantee for a certain treatment result can be given.
According to how pronounced the breast deformity is or how big the differences in size are, either both breasts are enhanced with stem cell-enriched autologous fat or only one breast.
Changes to and optimization of shape can be achieved by precision injections of extremely tiny fat particles into the corresponding parts of the breast.
If there are considerable deviations in shape, one or several follow-up treatment sessions may be required to achieve the desired result. Pre-stretching of one or both breasts using a mechanical suction bra may be recommended in some cases.
The Period after Breast Correction with Stem Cell-Enriched Autologous Fat
The same recommendations apply here as for a breast augmentation with stem cell-enriched autologous fat: You must wear a bandage until the next morning and afterwards compression garments for 1 week if the liposuction was carried out with microcannulas; if the liposuction was carried out with regular cannulas, for 6 to 8 weeks. A sports bra should be worn for approx. 4 weeks.
You usually should be able to go back to work 1 to 2 days after surgery. It is important not to move your upper body abruptly or lift heavy weights (e.g., fitness training, barbell training, tennis) during the first few weeks after surgery.
The type of sport and your individual healing process determine when you will be able to begin sports again. We will monitor your health during the healing process and give you recommendations tailored to your needs. After liposuction with regular cannulas you will usually need several weeks longer before you can fully resume normal daily activities.
Stem cell-enriched autologous fat enables asymmetries, unevenness and other breast deformities to be corrected, within certain limits. As this procedure is as gentle and as easy on the body as possible, not every change in shape wanted can actually be achieved. We would be pleased to advise you accordingly.
The positive results of breast correction with stem cell-enriched autologous fat can be seen by their naturalness. As no foreign bodies, for instance, silicone are implanted, the corrected breast feels completely “real” to the touch and looks natural in any posture, whether you are standing, lying down or sitting. No scars visible to the naked eye remain, as no scalpel incisions are made.
The patient’s individual situation and physical build determine whether one, two or several treatment sessions are necessary.
