Breast lipofilling

Whether carried out alone or combined with breast-prosthesis insertion (composite technique), this intervention enlarges and remodels the breasts by injecting fat taken directly from the hips and/or thighs and/or buttocks and/or stomach. It is an increasingly common intervention, especially suitable for low-volume enlargement.

EXTRA

Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Can you breastfeed after a breast lipofilling?
    Yes, a woman can breastfeed after a breast lipofilling since it does not touch any of the lactiferous ducts.
  • How old do you have to be to have a breast enlargement?
    You can have a breast enlargement from the age of 17, which is when your breasts are fully developed.
  • Can all patients have recourse to breast lipofilling?
    According to recommendations made by the French Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, breast lipofilling is not recommended for women older than 35. It is also not recommended for women with a personal and/or direct family (mother, aunt) medical history of breast cancer.
