Many women want to get breast implants but worry about the results looking too artificial. While there are many techniques that help implants look more natural, as well as better implants than were available in the past, for some, these don’t go far enough.
This is why fat transfer to soften breast implants has been gaining in popularity. However, the question is if this technique could boost your own breast augmentation results.
Understanding Fat Grafting With Augmentation
The idea behind combining fat grafting with breast augmentation is that through the additional fat cells, the cleavage will look authentic. In particular, it is used to avoid breast separation, which sometimes happens after augmentation, mainly if the implants selected are the wrong size or shape for the client’s body.

With this technique, a small amount of excess fat is harvested from elsewhere on the client’s body. The fat cells are then processed and then placed along the inner cleavage line of the breasts. This can be done at the same time as the implants are placed or as a separate procedure if the client wishes to see how the implants look first.
Clients should keep in mind that fat transfer to soften breast implants, though in demand, is not widely available nor has it been studied long term. While it seems to have been successful in cases thus far, more studies are needed.
