that's sort of ironic, that I have thought of that lots of times - just move the fat from a location where I don't want it - to one that I do.

But, as said, surgery is a major event and you'd better get a doctor who knows the procedure well

I would recommend doing a huge amount of research and asking a lot of doctors before you consider having it done. In particular, make sure you know the LONG-TERM success rates. The thing is, fat is living tissue, so it's not as easy as just sucking it out of one place and moving it to another. They have to somehow give it a blood supply, etc, to keep it alive, which makes for a really major surgery with lots of chances for something to go wrong, especially infection. It's more of a transplant than just a transfer.

And if you're working on losing weight, hold off on the breast enhancement until you're at goal. A lot of times, losing weight elsewhere makes your breasts look bigger. If you get the surgery and then lose 20 pounds, you might end up looking out-of-proportion.

Surgery is risky and should only be used as a last resort. I prefer the hard way of losing fat, diet and exercise.

Wouldn't want to unless it was for a reason such as reconstructive

I saw a program where a woman had breast enhancement with a fairly new procedure of transferring fat from thighs and hips to the breasts. It replaces silicone. In fact this normal BMI body fat woman was told to gain 5 pounds as she didn't have enough fat to transfer.

Has anyone had it? If so do you like the results? .Thanks in advance for sharing your experience.
