Who is the good candidate for this procedure?

Fat Grafting to the breast can give patients a soften shape and moderate increase in breast size. Patients looking to achieve very natural looking results, with an increase of half to a full cup size, are excellent candidates for lipofilling alone. One of the beauties of this procedure is that it can be combined with other breast enhancements such as augmentation with implants or a breast lift to give more dramatic results. Lipofilling can be used for patients who wish to have these procedures and additionally make custom shaping enhancements. It is also possible to use fat transfer for breast reconstruction in the case where a woman has had a mastectomy. Ideal candidates have adequate sites for donor fat, are in good health, and can undergo anesthesia.

Procedure techniques & scars

Dr. Mok provides signature breast augmentation techniques using lipofilling. With a variety of applications, he can customize and enhance desired areas to provide beautiful and natural looking results. For patients who would like to avoid using implants, Dr. Mok can use fat grafting to provide a slightly larger, softer, and more attractive breast. With lipofilling he may also enhance a breast lift surgery by redefining shape and new lifted contours. Of course, for patients looking for a more prominent result Dr. Mok combines lipofilling with breast implants. Through this technique he can create Hollywood looking cleavage, curvy side breast and a very full, perky breast profile. The technique used will largely depend on the desired goals of the patient.

The fat used to inject the breast is harvested from another area on the body with a special cannula. This fat is then prepared through a purifying process that removes unwanted components. Using a special technique, the fat is then injected into the breast tissue and under the skin of the breast. Not all fat that is injected will survive. For this reason, Dr. Mok evenly distributes the fat into multiple channels to give the cells maximum chance of survival. Fat injection not only creates beautiful breast augmentation results, but the fat can be taken from the hips, thighs and abdomen to create a more overall balance and curve to the body.

When are the results of breast fat grafting surgery noticeable?

The results of breast fat grafting surgery are noticeable immediately. However, it takes about three to five months for the final results to become actualized, as this is how long it takes for the body to heal completely and for any residual swelling to improve.


Fat Grafting to the breast helps many patients achieve a better breast shape or cleavage without the use of implants. During this procedure, only a small cannula is used to inject the fat, leaving less scarring than augmentation with implants. Patients find that fat grafting provides a very natural look and feel with less weight than an implant. Harvesting the fat from other areas of the body using liposuction also helps shape and contouring these donor sites. One of the largest benefits is the versatility this treatment to be combined with other breast enhancement procedures.

Proper preparation for your procedure can help make a smooth transition and easy recovery. Patients will be advised to stop smoking several weeks before their surgery. Proper diet and sleep can help prepare the body as well. Picking up all prescribed medications and arranging rides to and from the hospital will be necessary. Preparing a comfortable place to rest and relax at home will help create a relaxing atmosphere to heal and recover.

Fat Grafting results can last for a very long time. The duration varies from patient to patient, as everyone lives a different lifestyle.

Fat can be grafted from many desired areas on the body. Dr. Mok will ensure that the donor site has an adequate amount of fat to be taken.

Some patients choose to undergo extensive liposuction and use this fat in addition to their breast enhancement to give volume to areas like the face and hands.

Patients will return home the same day as their surgery. For the first few days patients may experience pain and discomfort that can be managed with medications provided by Dr. Mok.
