We're sure everyone has had this fantasy at some point in her life: If only we could transfer the excess fat from our tummy to our chest – then we could finally have a more shapely silhouette. There's enough fat from other parts of the body to contribute to our bust line!

Thanks to medical science, this thought has already been made into a reality. Transferring excess and unwanted fat tissue from areas such as your tummy to your breasts is now available at Amaris B. Clinic.

ADR-C Breast Enhancement, one of Amaris B. Clinic's signature treatments, kills two birds with one stone. It helps you to achieve bigger and shapelier breasts while sculpting the body.

What does the procedure involve?

The ADR-C Breast Enhancement is a 2-in-1 body enhancement and sculpting treatment that involves removing stubborn fat from the body where there is excess and then harvesting it to the breasts to increase the size and improve the shape. 

How does the ADR-C Breast Enhancement compare to traditional breast implant surgery?

Our breasts are made up of glands and fat tissues, which is why the ADR-C Breast Enhancement treatment, which injects your fat to increase the volume of your breasts, can produce a more natural-looking result. There are also no risks of ruptures, leaks or shifts commonly associated with implants.

Where can the fat be harvested from?

It can be taken from any fat-abundant body area, but usually from the thighs, belly or waist. During your consultation with your doctor, you should discuss the best areas to take fat from to achieve your desired body shape and increase your cup size at the same time.

What is the recovery process like for the ADR-C Breast Enhancement procedure?

After your fat grafting procedure, you will likely be experiencing some bruising and swelling in your breasts and the donor sites for a few days. However, since the discomfort and pain are manageable with the doctor's prescribed pain relief medication. There is little disruption to your daily activities and work. 

Some things to avoid to allow for successful healing include sleeping on your back and not putting pressure on your breasts. 

ADR-C Breast Enhancement (Breast fat grafting) cost in Singapore 

The cost of breast fat grafting varies from person to person due to personal body goals and unique body types. For more accurate pricing, kindly make an appointment for a private consultation for a thorough clinical assessment with the doctor.
