Home » Cosmetic surgeon Richard Buckley, MD, who practices in Milford, Penn., comments on the growing trend of using one’s fat, rather than synthetic breast implants, to enlarge or reconstruct breasts.
“Many women who want larger breasts are concerned with the use of breast implants. What many don’t know is there is another option that doesn’t involve the use of saline-filled or silicone implants. Today, we use a woman’s own fat to enlarge her breasts,” says cosmetic surgeon Richard Buckley, MD. “When done correctly, the result is a natural-looking cup-size enlargement, without the potential unnatural feel of implants or scars from incisions to place those implants. A physician’s experience in fat transfer is very important because the success of this procedure is highly technique-dependent.”
