Breast Fat Transfer

BREAST FAT TRANSFER CAN CREATE BEAUTIFUL AND NATURAL LOOKING BREASTS.

Fat transfer has been around for over 25 years but has only recently started to become a popular method for breast augmentation in North America. Breast fat transfer entails liposuction to remove fat from a stubborn area on the body.

Fat transfer has been around for over 25 years but has only recently started to become a popular method for breast augmentation in North America. It has long been popular in Europe and South America. Breast fat transfer entails liposuction to remove fat from a stubborn area on the body. This fat is then prepared and injected into the breast. It is a very meticulous procedure and can be time consuming. Each droplet of fat has to be individually placed to provide the best shape as well as to ensure the best fat survival. However, the results can be exquisite. Your breasts will feel perfectly natural because it is your own fat being used.

Other benefits include liposuction to that area of fat which otherwise never seems to disappear. Not only do you get to take fat from an area you don’t want it and put it into an area you do, there are virtually no scars. For women wanting to avoid an implant it is also a very good choice. Typically it is a better procedure for women wanting a smaller breast augmentation. For really large breast augmentations an implant is probably still your best choice. Some women have limited breast tissue such that any implant would be visible. Fat grafting can be used in conjunction with a traditional breast augmentation to conceal the appearance of the implant. This can give a very natural looking result.

Fabulous Doctor, Extremely smart ( like Mensa IQ ) with attention to detail.

Fabulous Doctor, Extremely smart ( like Mensa IQ) with attention to detail. Confident, clear, and precise in conversations. Hand surgery was done extremely well with 4 breaks in one shattered bone. Bone was wrapped and pinned in titanium chain links and micro screwed. Recover has been excellent I have 100% of mobility in my hand and work in home renovation. The scar is small pin sized line, not noticeable; no extra bumps or blemishes. Truly a five star surgeon. I am hoping he does face surgery.

I was so pleased that my GP referred me to Dr Shortt

I was so pleased that my GP referred me to Dr Shortt, for knee surgery. Excellent caring Doctor, if you need plastic surgery place Dr. Shortt, at the top of your list. Great experience, great results, this Doc, is a 10!

I simply cannot find enough superlatives to express my gratitude

I simply cannot find enough superlatives to express my gratitude to Dr. Short for his wonderful work.
I have, for many years now, had numerous black moles and dark spots on my face and they seemed to be multiplying. Dr. Short removed over 40 of these and when I left his office, I have to admit, I was worried. I looked pretty rough. But there are no crevices or dips in my skin (of which I thought there’d be many) and most incredibly there is no visible scarring at all. It’s hard for me to say how much better I feel now. I have a refreshed, natural look. I am a career musician and in the public eye so, needless to say, I feel so much more confident about my appearance.
Dr. Short was honest with me from the beginning. He clearly explained options to me but never made me feel that he was up selling other services. I was fearful and had huge reservations about having anybody touch my face but everything about my experience with Dr. Short and his staff was positive and I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend him. He has my sincere thanks.

You can tell the enthusiasm and passion Dr.Shortt has for his work

From the get go the professionalism and expertise I had received far surpassed those from other consultations I had done. I had gone in for a breast augmentation and am amazed from the results. You can tell the enthusiasm and passion Dr.Shortt has for his work. He had stated that afterwards my breast would look “perfect”, I figured anything would be better then what I had. Unbelieving then, here I am now absolutely thrilled with the results. I had a tattoo where the implant incision would be, to my surprise Dr. Shortt was able to work around it as well.
