How Breast Augmentation Can Transform a Flat Chest
Breast augmentation is a life-changing procedure for women who feel self-conscious about their flat chest. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Fernau is an expert in the field and has helped countless women in the Pittsburgh, PA area achieve their desired breast size through a technique called composite breast augmentation, which combines a fat transfer procedure with the use of breast implants. This approach gives patients the best of both worlds.
Accent on Body Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa understands the importance of feeling confident and comfortable in your skin, which is why we take extra care to ensure patients are satisfied with their results.

Do you have an underdeveloped or flat chest?
Many women with flat chests feel insecure because they don't feel "feminine," believing that their breasts are underdeveloped or not proportionate to the rest of their bodies. Form-fitting clothes like swimwear may not fit properly, and shopping for bras can be challenging. Breast augmentation can completely change a woman’s life — it can give them the appearance and confidence they have always wanted.
What is composite breast augmentation?
Composite breast augmentation is a procedure that combines two techniques in one surgery: a fat transfer and breast implants. A custom-fitted implant is placed behind the breast tissue, and then Dr. Fernau uses liposuction to harvest fat from one area of the body and inject it into areas of the breasts for additional shape and projection. This method allows for more natural-looking results than using implants alone.
Women with naturally small or flat chests are excellent candidates for composite breast augmentation. Dr. Fernau also helps individuals who have lost breast volume due to age, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.
What do results look like after breast augmentation?
The results of breast augmentation vary based on your body type and individual surgical plan. For example, some women seek subtle enhancements, while others want more dramatic outcomes. The good news is no matter what, our patients are thrilled with their outcomes and are proud to show off their curves.
Anyone with questions about their potential results or what to expect after a fat transfer treatment with breast implants is welcome to view before-and-after photos of our previous patients in the Pittsburgh, PA area. These photos can give you an idea of what your own outcomes could look like.
What about breast augmentation recovery?
Dr. Fernau is proud to offer patients another major advantage over other surgeons: faster and more comfortable results. This is because of a device called a Keller Funnel 2 that creates smaller incisions, allowing for a more gentle delivery of the implant. A long-acting local anesthetic Exparel can also reduce post-operative pain for 3 – 10 days after a fat transfer and breast implant procedure.
Results from composite breast augmentation are immediate, though the treatment area may be swollen for a short period. It takes about six months for your new breasts to look and feel normal. Our team can clear you for certain activities, such as exercise and aerobic activity, once you have fully healed.
