Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer in Chicago, IL

When it comes to breast augmentation at Iteld Plastic Surgery, implants aren't your only option. For women in the Chicago, IL area looking for more natural solutions for breast enhancement, Dr. Lawrence Iteld and our team are excited to offer breast augmentation with fat transfer. This two-part cosmetic procedure uses fat taken from your own body (through liposuction) to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, resulting in a slimmer but shapelier figure. If you're interested in restoring or improving the shape of your breasts while getting rid of stubborn fat, breast augmentation with fat grafting may be the solution you're looking for. Contact our practice today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Iteld, and learn more about this fantastic procedure.

Breast augmentation with fat transfer is done in two parts and takes about two hours at our Chicago, IL practice. During the surgery, Dr. Iteld will make a small incision in the area where you want to remove stubborn fat, like the stomach or thighs. The excess fat cells will be put in a sterile container and purified. Once it's ready, Dr. Iteld will transfer it to the breasts with a series of injections. Because the extracted fat is taken from your own body, the risks of any negative reactions are much lower. As a side benefit, your augmented breasts will have a much more natural look and feel than you would get from traditional saline or gel implants. You can expect mild bruising or swelling immediately after your surgery, but thanks to our non-narcotic anesthetic process, most patients experience a much easier recovery with minimal discomfort.

Following your procedure, we'll move you into a recovery room for a short monitoring period before sending you home with detailed post-operative care instructions. Most women are able to get back to their routine within a week or two of their fat transfer treatment, but you should avoid strenuous exercise and wear supportive garments while you heal. You might notice tenderness or swelling for a few days after your procedure, but these will pass. Once the recovery phase is complete and the fat has incorporated, it will stay there, leaving you with a more curvaceous, confident appearance.

The benefits of breast augmentation with fat grafting include:

  • Removes stubborn fat that may persist, even with diet and exercise
  • Addresses volume loss in the breasts
  • Lowers the risk of complications
  • Helps create a more voluptuous physique
  • Results look and feel more natural than other breast augmentation options
  • Recovery is generally quick and easy

Dr. Iteld and his team truly deserve a 12/10. I got a breast augmentation done about 6 weeks ago and couldn’t be happier with the results. The entire experience from the consultation to the surgery and recovery was a breeze. He answered all of my questions during the consultation and made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. The non-narcotic approach they take makes the recovery so easy and pain free. Everyone in the office is so nice and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Iteld and would 100% use him in the future!

Office review - took his time to go over and explain everything - 2 breastfed children later, some devastating life circumstances and months of research, I end up finding Dr.Iteld here on realself and yes, it was the best decision I have ever made!2 surgeries were performed at the same time. Breast augmentation and labiaplasty. Currently 6 weeks Post Surgery. Pros: Dr.Iteld and his office is absolutely fantastic. I work in the medical industry for quite some time and let me just say that he is one of the kind! Not only he did a phenomenal job and gave me the confidence about my body back. He also made me feel EXTREMELY comfortable even when some things are not so comfortable to show and share. I think he was the first doctor I have met who truly took his time to go over and explain everything from A to Z. I didn’t not feel rushed even once, but I did feel that everyone in the office do actually care about their patients!I’m the person who does a lot of research prior doing anything related to my body and I most definitely don’t take it for granted. After the first consultation with Dr.Iteld I knew I was in the right hands. His norco free recovery is outstanding! It was the most painless and comfortable recovery, which I didn’t even expect to be that easy!“Happy patients are the best marketing” and it is very true, because I just can’t stop talking about Dr.Iteld and his office and how happy I am with the work he has done!Cons: None.Ps. Special thank you to Linda (patient coordinator) I truly appreciate you from the bottom of my heart!

Achieved the natural look I wanted - I am very impressed with Dr. Iteld and his office. I had both breast augmentation and liposuction. First of all, he is an excellent surgeon who listened to my concerns and wishes. He achieved the natural look I wanted. Secondly, his approach to an opioid free breast augmentation helped control my pain better than a friend who had opioids for her surgery. Thirdly, I was very impressed that his staff walked me through each step and prepared me for the post op course- the pain, recovery, and recommended actions to achieve the best outcome. As a healthcare worker, I know it’s better to prepare patients for both the good and bad outcomes and what to expect for pain, swelling, nausea, and recovery. However most surgeons gloss over this and patients are surprised and upset when they have expected minor problems. When I had postop concerns, they were addressed quickly. I appreciated Dr. Iteld’s bedside manner and the professionalism of his staff. I cannot recommend him enough!

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Iteld and I absolutely love my results. He and his team were so kind, professional, thorough, and informative. I was a little nervous of course about surgery, but they made me feel very comfortable and confident in my decision. Recovery with no narcotics was so easy. I was surprised at how good I felt after surgery. Everything healed up perfectly and I’m so happy I went with him. I’d highly recommend him!

Average Rating

Every treatment at Iteld Plastic Surgery begins with a comprehensive assessment of your needs and goals. During this appointment, Dr. Iteld will help you determine if this approach is the best way to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. An ideal candidate for breast augmentation with fat transfer is a person who is at a stable weight and whose breasts have finished their natural development. Your body should also have enough fat on it for Dr. Iteld to harvest and transfer.

How much does breast augmentation cost?

Your total cost for breast augmentation surgery will vary depending on your choices and if you are having any other surgeries at the same time. When your treatment plan is developed, Dr. Iteld can talk to you about estimated costs and financing options. To ensure your results match your goals and last a long time, it is important to focus on quality over costs.

Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?

Your treatment plan might include a fat transfer, a breast lift, or both. Breast lift surgery removes excess skin and raises the position of the breasts, while augmentation addresses the shape and size. During your consultation with Dr. Iteld, He will listen to your concerns and goals before discussing your best treatment options. An augmentation and lift are usually included in a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

What if I don't have enough fat for a transfer?

At your initial consultation with Dr. Iteld, he will discuss how much fat is needed to achieve your goals. You might not have enough fat for the transfer, but this is typically only a concern if you have a very low body fat percentage or you want to transfer large volume of fat. Fat may be taken from multiple areas if needed or combined with donor fat. Dr. Iteld will explain your choices during this consultation.

Breast augmentation with fat transfer combines the benefits of fat removal with breast enhancement to create naturally stunning results. If you're looking for a more modest increase in breast volume and have some fatty spots you'd like to address at the same time, we invite you to contact Iteld Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL to learn more about our customizable aesthetic treatments. Dr. Iteld and our team will be happy to work with you to create the look you've always wanted.
