"Dr. Huertas is a very kind and knowledgable doctor. I’m very happy to have found him. He does biodentical hormone replacement and other cosmetic procedures that most gynecologists don’t do. He also takes most insurance options. 5 stars!!! 👏👏👏👏👏"- A.M. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"I had a great experience with Dr. Huertas and his staff. He preformed 360 lipo on me and I’m now 1 day post op. I had a massage done with an independent massage therapist and they raved about my first day results! I will update this if anything changes. I would recommend this doctor!"- C.O. / Google / Jan 28, 2021

What are the benefits of breast augmentation?
If you have small breasts, a fat transfer can enhance your appearance and provide a fuller and more voluptuous look. Here are some advantages of working with our team:
- Natural results: Since your own tissue is used for the procedure, there is a lower risk of rejection and an increased chance that your outcomes will look and feel natural.
- Safety: This is a much safer alternative to breast implants, which sometimes come with a higher risk of complications and side effects.
- Long-lasting results: A fat transfer can last for many years, and some patients may only need one treatment to achieve their desired results.
Do I qualify for a fat transfer to my breasts?
Choosing to augment your breasts is, of course, a very personal choice, but we know you wouldn't ask for a consultation if it wasn't important to you. Our ability to boost the size of your breasts without synthetic implants may be a game-changer for you. To qualify, you'll need to schedule a physical exam and consultation with Dr. Huertas. Good candidates should be physically healthy with developed breasts and also need to have enough fat tissue for Dr. Huertas to collect, purify, and transfer.
Our surgical Techniques (Liposuction & Reinjection)
Dr. Huertas will ask about how you envision the shape, size, and profile of your breast after the procedure. Most patients want a natural look while adding fullness to the top portion of the breast as well for a fuller look. The breast profile, or size and projection, can vary from patient to patient. We understand that all of the considerations may be overwhelming, but selecting the right augmentation approach can be easy. These considerations paired with Dr. Huertas's knowledge should make the decision much easier with the result you're looking for.
Breast enhancement using autologous tissue is an outpatient surgery, and there are two parts to this method of breast augmentation. First, Dr. Huertas will use an anesthetic to numb the area where the fat will be harvested, which is usually in the abdomen, buttocks, flanks, or thighs. Then, he'll insert a cannula through an incision and begin gathering the fat for purification. After purifying the fat and putting it in a syringe, Dr. Huertas will skillfully inject the fat into your breasts.
What to Expect
You may not have large surgical scars to care for after your liposuction and fat injections, but you may still need time to recover. You can expect to see some swelling and bruising in the areas treated. Most patients can return to normal activities within the first week; however, physical exertion such as exercise should be delayed until Dr. Huertas releases you to do so. He will let you know how many follow-up appointments you'll need and how often to schedule them.
Fat Transfer to Breast FAQs
How long does a fat transfer to the breasts last?
It will depend on your body and how much of the fat is reabsorbed, but most patients can expect their results to last for many years.
Is a fat transfer to the breasts safe?
An autologous fat transfer to the breasts is generally considered a very safe and effective procedure with low risk.
Does breast augmentation with a fat transfer look natural?
Yes, it typically does. That is one of the main perks of a fat transfer to the breasts — it can create beautifully subtle enhancements that look and feel natural.
How much does breast augmentation with a fat transfer cost?
The cost of breast augmentation with fat varies because it's a personalized surgery, so the approach will vary from patient to patient. Where and how many locations on your body you have the fat harvested can factor into the cost, too. Once Dr. Huertas has developed your treatment plan in your consultation, he will talk to you about estimated fees.
What if I decide to have implants placed later?
You might decide that you want to have saline or silicone breast implants at a later date. If this happens, you should still qualify, but if this is a concern for you, please let Dr. Huertas know. He may have specific recommendations for you based on that information.
