What is a Fat Transfer to the Breasts?
When a person has weight fluctuations or ages, they lose overall shape in certain body features where volume once existed. One way to regain this lost volume is through a cosmetic treatment known as fat grafting (a fat transfer). A fat transfer takes fat from a place on the body and injects it into a specific place that needs additional volume. A fat transfer can be used on large areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, or on small features, such as the lower eyelid, cheeks, or lips. Fat transfers are often chosen when a patient wants a natural enhancement versus using implants or fillers. New Orleans, LA area plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder is skilled at using the most advanced liposuction and grafting methods for performing fat transfers. This body contouring treatment at Stalder Plastic Surgery creates natural-looking, appealing outcomes.
What Happens During the Fat Transfer to Breasts Procedure?
You will be placed under some form of anesthesia when undergoing a fat transfer. The type of sedation or numbing medication will depend on how much fat tissue is being removed, including the location where it will be placed. A form of liposuction is completed via a special cannula to delicately extract the fat so it can be separated and purified through a centrifuge (which prepares the healthy fat for syringes). After preparing the injection site, the healthy fat tissue will be transferred into the breasts. The injection process is performed in layers until the desired outcome has been attained.

Stalder Plastic Surgery Reviews
Dr. Stalder and his staff are awesome very professional and compassionate. Dr. Stalder, Abby & Jess treated me like family. I am very satisfied with my surgery & reconstruction Dr. Stalder is the best.Dr. Stalder explained everything in detail and what to expect regarding my double mastectomy & reconstruction. Dr. Stalder is the best.
I had a double mastectomy with implants at Ochsner in 2021/2022. Post-surgery, I had chronic pain and my breasts were extremely hard and deformed. I was told for months that “It will get better” or “Give it a few more months”; however, the pain and discomfort never went away and I felt dismissed and unheard from my treatment team at Ochsner. I found Dr. Stalder through an internet search and made an appointment for consultation. Around October of 2022, we first met in his office where I voiced my symptoms and complaints and Dr. Stalder gave me what he thought my diagnosis was: capsular contracture. I thought he was crazy as my own plastic surgeon from Ochsner never once mentioned those words and Stalder had not even examined me. When I left, I searched capsular contracture on the internet and found that all of the photos showing this looked just like my breasts. I quickly booked the surgery with Dr. Stalder. Dr. Stalder performed my explant and flap surgery in January of 2023. I was told that I would likely need someone to stay with me for at least a week post-surgery. However, I was able to return home alone with friends to check on me for any needs. I went back to work in four weeks (six weeks is usually recommended). My second surgery to “smooth everything out and rearrange my nipples” was in June 2023. It was a same-day surgery and I was back to work in six days. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dr. Stalder’s office. From Jessica at the front desk to Abbie (his PA) and most of all Dr. Stalder. He knows what he’s doing and his precision is excellent. He saved me from chronic pain and the thought that my breasts were always going to be deformed after my mastectomy. I would absolutely recommend him over and over again.
Very caring doctor and staff. Extremely knowledgeable and helping breast reconstruction with several options. Just a wonderful wonderful doctor. You cannot go wrong with this doctor and his staff
The best dr without a doubt and the staff is amazing. He was amazing with my surgery and my recovery.
The office is beautiful and Dr. Stalder is a gem! Truly caters to your every need! I cannot recommend him enough!
