In brief: No.

Although that is a very nice thought, breast tissue donated to another person will get rejected.
Transplant patients (heart, lung, kidney, liver, etc) need to have a good match and they have to take immuno-suppression medicines. Fyi: dr. Joseph murray, a plastic surgeon, performed the 1st transplant on a human (identical twin kidney). http://www.jjrothmd.com/blog/view/joseph-murray-plastic-surg.
