Abstract Breast augmentation is a challenging issue in atrophied breasts related to breastfeeding. Here, we describe a modification combining breast implants and fat grafting to obtain a successful outcome without implant edge visibility and palpability. Thirty-four women with atrophied breasts underwent breast augmentation over a 6-year period. The breast implants were placed in the subglandular plane to obtain optimal filling and expansion of atrophied breast tissue. Autologous fat grafting… 
Simultaneous Augmentation Mammoplasty and Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy for Enhanced Cosmesis and Efficacy
Simultaneous augmentation mammoplasty and VABB prevented unnecessary scars and pain, and the complication rates did not statistically differ from those of augmentation only group.
Fat Grafting and Breast Augmentation: A Systematic Review of Primary Composite Augmentation
Primary composite breast augmentation is a safe procedure with a trend toward subfascial implant placement and low fat grafting volumes focused on the medial breast borders with overall complication rates low.
Application of Fat Grafting in Cosmetic Breast Surgery.
The current applications of fat grafting in aesthetic breast surgery are reviewed and an up-to-date summary of its reported outcomes, safety, and complications is provided.
Accidental injection of autologous fat into the breast implant: a case report highlighting radiological findings
This case represents a previously unreported intraimplant injection of fat with resultant intracapular rupture and highlights the radiological findings of intracapsular implant rupture.
Effects of Silicone Implants on the Mammary Gland: Ultrasonographic and 3D Study
The breast thickness of patients undergoing breast augmentation was monitored by ultrasound, and correlations with surface, volume and projection measurements were examined, finding that implants affect significatively the thickness of the glandular tissue.
Effectiveness of Autologous Fat Grafting in Scaring After Augmentation Rhinoplasty
Capsular contracture and retractile scar after augmentation rhinoplasty were severe complication for patients; autologous fat grafting is a minimally invasive and effective treatment for the scaring for both functional and aesthetic purposes.

Mammaaugmentation: Implantatwahl und Technik
Die vorliegende Arbeit diskutiert unsere Kriterien zur Wahl des Implantats anhand der spezifischen Implantateigenschaften and klinischen Konstellationen, des Wunsches der Patientin sowie die Operationstechnik, beginnend with der Erfassung der anatomischen Parameter.

Composite Breast Augmentation: Soft-Tissue Planning Using Implants and Fat
A new concept of composite breast augmentation surgery that combines the core volume projection of breast implants with the natural look and feel of overlying fat is described, which affords a more powerful and versatile approach, and achieves a synergistic outcome.
Autologous fat grafting for breast augmentation in underweight women.
The same degree of breast enlargement was achieved in both study groups after autologous fat grafting for breast augmentation and the rate of posttreatment complications was not higher for underweight women, suggesting BMI≤18.5 is not a contraindication for this procedure.
Immediate Large-Volume Grafting of Autologous Fat to the Breast Following Implant Removal.
Power-assisted transfer of autologous fat to the breast improves the ability of the recipient site to receive the graft and allows for explantation and fat transplantation in a single session, suitable for patients who desire a natural-appearing breast that is similar in volume to their previous implant.
Autologous Cell-Enriched Fat Grafting for Breast Augmentation
These prospective results demonstrate that ADRC-enriched fat grafts processed with a closed automated system maintain high cell viability and that the procedure is safe and effective, with all patients showing improvement after a single treatment.
Management of a Common Breast Augmentation Complication
It is suggested that fat grafting is an effective treatment of the breast double-bubble deformity with a simple, closed technique which is safe and cost-effective.
The Role of Autologous Fat Grafting in Secondary Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction
Fat grafting is most commonly used in those breasts with rib harvest, deep inferior epigastric perforator flap reconstructions, and those with acute postoperative complications, and should be considered a powerful adjunct to improve aesthetic outcomes inVolume-deficient autologous breast reconstructions and additionally optimize contour in volume-adequate breast reconstructionions.
Fat Grafting in Postmastectomy Breast Reconstruction with Expanders and Prostheses in Patients Who Have Received Radiotherapy: Formation of New Subcutaneous Tissue
In mastectomized patients who received radiotherapy, fat grafting in addition to traditional tissue expander and implant breast reconstruction achieves better reconstructive outcomes with the creation of new subcutaneous tissue, accompanied by improved skin quality of the reconstructed breast without capsular contracture.
Autologous Fat Grafting for Treatment of Breast Implant Capsular Contracture: A Study in Pigs.
Results in this animal model indicate that pericapsular lipoinjection may be a promising treatment for CC in humans.
Mammographic Changes after Fat Transfer to the Breast Compared with Changes after Breast Reduction: A Blinded Study
Compared with reduction mammaplasty, a widely accepted procedure, fat grafting to the breast produces fewer radiographic abnormalities with a more favorable Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System score and less aggressive follow-up recommendations by breast radiologists.
