Mastectomy for breast cancer can be devastating for many women. Breast reconstruction not only restores a physical breast mound for the woman, it also facilitates the healing process by improving her body image and self-confidence, hence improving psychological recovery.
Fat grafting, or autologous fat transfer, is a breast reconstruction technique that involves harvesting fat from other parts of the body—usually the abdomen or thighs—via liposuction. The processed fat is then reinjected into the chest to recreate an ideal breast size and shape. As a cosmetic procedure, fat grafting in Singapore is more suited for those who are looking for more minor breast enhancements, which may involve simply correcting a breast’s shape, position and symmetry. It is also considered as a natural alternative to breast implants, though fat transfer in Singapore may be performed alongside implant insertion in a hybrid procedure.
