Questions and Answers

  • Fat can be harvested from any area of the body where you have excess, including the abdomen, flanks, hips and thighs

  • Fat is suctioned from the abdomen, hips or thighs, decanted into pure fat, and then reinjected into the breasts.

  • Following surgery and discharge from the surgical center, you should expect to feel sore at the harvest and grafts sites for several days. You may be prescribed compression garments for the liposuction sites, but do not compress the breasts with bras or wraps for 6 weeks.

It is our goal to help you to look and be your best, and to feel at peace in your own skin.
