About the procedure
As this procedure requires two surgical sites–the location in which the fat is being collected, and the breasts–it is a slightly longer process than a typical breast augmentation surgery. The procedure begins with liposuction, which involves injecting a tumescent solution into the sections of unwanted fat, causing the fat to firm. Then through minor incisions–only about a centimeter in length–Dr. Prichard suctions the fat out with a cannula. The tumescent technique helps to reduce bruising and swelling and allows for accurate fat removal.
Once the fat is harvested, it is purified and refined so it is fit for reinjection. Using a specialized needle, Dr. Prichard then injects the purified fat directly into the breasts in a precise fashion, allowing them to fill out in a natural shape. With his intimate understanding of breast anatomy, Dr. Prichard delivers among the best fat transfer breast augmentation Phoenix has available.
