Do you want fuller, larger breasts without artificial implants? Fat transfer breast augmentation can give you natural-looking volume with none of the potential risks of implants. You can achieve significant improvement in volume while maintaining your unique natural breast shape.
What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
Have you considered breast augmentation but hesitated due to concerns about implants? Fat transfer breast augmentation offers a solution. Less invasive than augmentation with implants, this procedure uses fat taken from another part of your body and relocates it to your breasts. Your body does not react to this transferred fat, and once established, it will last a lifetime.
How Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Work?
Dr. Langdon will use the Body-Jet liposuction system to remove fat cells from an area with unwanted fat. This method separates and removes fat cells (actually clumps of fat cells) more gently than traditional liposuction, making them more likely to thrive in their new location. The fat cells are then cleansed and purified in preparation for transfer. Next, Dr. Langdon uses a special pump system to transfer the fat tissue into your breasts, where they “settle in” to give you a lifetime increase in breast volume.
How Much is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
The cost of fat transfer breast augmentation can vary widely due to factors including the cost of living in your area. Your provider’s skill and experience will play a role, especially because this procedure requires artistry to shape attractive breasts.
The cost of this procedure can range from $3,200 to $15,700. The national average price is $9,300. This does not include all expenses, including medications or anesthesia. The procedure includes the liposuction and the augmentation process.

What is Recovery Like From Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
Depending on where on the body you have liposuction and how much fat is removed, you may have some soreness and swelling for a few days. Dr. Langdon may recommend limiting strenuous activities for 1-2 weeks. The breasts may feel swollen for 1-2 weeks post-operatively. Most swelling of the breasts will resolve by one month, but it may take up to three months to see the final result of the augmentation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
If you understand what to expect and feel like this procedure is right for you, you may be a good candidate. Fat transfer breast augmentation is safe and effective when performed by an experienced provider like Dr. Langdon.
I had 3 treatments with the PicoSure laser to remove 2 black ink tattoos. The tattoos are 20 years old and located on my ankle and lower back. I previously had 12 treatments with a qswitch laser at Cornell and almost gave up as the results were poor in my case. The PicoSure laser at Dr. Langdon’s office was the exact opposite experience. There is much less pain and discomfort with a much quicker recovery time than my Cornell qswitch experience. I hardly noticed any pain after the procedure and even the next day there was no need to address a wound like I did with the Cornell qswitch treatments. The results are unbelievable and the tattoos are now greatly diminished. I anticipate 2 more treatments to completely remove the visible elements of the ink. I also feel the treatment price is fair due to the high cost of this cutting edge laser. It has been a wonderful experience and I would recommend the Langdon center to anyone removing an unwanted tattoo. I was getting very discouraged in the past and the PicoSure laser treatments gave me faith that I will finally be able to remove my tattoos.
