Fat transfer procedure
Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer is a minimally invasive procedure and is commonly done outpatient with local anesthesia and sedation. Generally, the fat used in natural breast augmentation is harvested from the abdomen, back, thighs, or hips with liposuction. Then, the fat extracted from these areas is purified, and the grafted fat cells are injected into the region of the breast to enlarge the breasts. Fat grafting can also be used to cover implants in revision breast surgery and in breast reconstruction.

With that being said, Dr. Azouz may be able to determine if your breast implants are ruptured during your physical exam.
