I’ve heard that fat can be injected into the breasts to make them larger. Is that true?

Injecting fat to enlarge breasts is a specialised procedure, and is really only useful for fixing small dents or contours, not making the whole breast larger.

You may have heard of taking fat and skin from the abdomen or buttocks to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy. This is a complicated procedure with a long recovery period and it is only appropriate for patients requiring reconstruction, and not just for augmentation.
