The best candidates for the breast augmentation using Microfat Grafting are patients who have realistic expectations about what can be accomplished. You would be best suited for this surgery if you are primarily interested in liposuction but are looking to enhance your breast size or shape as well.
To have this procedure you must have a breast MRI before, and six months following the surgery. A suction bra is worn 12 hours per day for a minimum of three weeks prior to surgery to expand the breast tissue in preparation for the microfat injections.
