Dr. Yovino’s Answer:It’s best to be as stable as possible. This includes regular exercise before and then 2 weeks after the transfer. The key is to have enough stable fat. Given your provided numbers, it’s likely that you have enough for about 1/2 cup increase. You must visit an experienced breast fat transfer surgeon. Only an in person evaluation will result in the best estimate.
