Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

I’m really liking fat transfer to the breast and so are my patients.

Before and after fat transfer from the abdomen and hips to the breasts.  Note the increased fullness of the upper pole of the breast and the uplifting effect.

Seattle Plastic Surgeon blogs about her early results of fat transfer to the breast. 

Lately I am getting a lot of inquires about fat transfer to the breasts.  There must be a “BUZZ” out there.  And I am soooo glad that I have started doing this procedure.  I was skeptical (it’s my Germanic nature) until I attended the annual meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) last May in Boston. 

I attended every presentation on fat transfer to the breast and became convinced that, in the right patient, this was a procedure I wanted to add to my practice. 

I am now starting to see some of my early postoperative results and I am even more convinced that this procedure has a place among the many breast operations I do. 

This lady on the left has given me permission to use her photos.  The after photos were taken 3 months after her surgery.  Her breasts are completely soft and natural feeling and looking.  I do not think she had any significant residual swelling.  I will be following her and all of my fat transfer patients closely for several years to observe the long term size and shape of the breasts.

I am eternally grateful to this lovely young mom who agreed to be one of my first patients.  I do not take the trust she showed in me lightly. 

Thanks for reading!  Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder
