Q:”Want to do fat transfer to breast but I’ve read mixed reviews. I’m 5’2 and 110 pounds with 20% body fat. I’m looking to do contouring to get a more feminine shape. I used to be a C cup but deflated to a full A cup when I lost weight (have maintained the weight loss for a few years). Do you think doing the fat transfer to breast would be worth it or would I be better off doing fat transfer to butt since it has a higher survival rate? Recommendations for LA Doctors that specialize in fat transfer?”

Dr. Yovino’s Answer:Long story short, you’re better off narrowing down a few surgeons to visit. We need to evaluate your body and see exactly how much fat is truly available. Fat transfer to the breasts typically results in about 1/2 cup increase. Occasionally I’ll achieve a full cup increase with one session.
