How would you like to convert unwanted fat into shapelier, larger breasts?
Breast augmentation by fat transfer is a modern safe alternative to the traditional saline and synthetic implants. With natural breast augmentation, your own fat can be easily removed from areas where you do not want it, using only local anesthetic and then precisely placed in areas that need rebuilding, rebalancing and fat (volume) replacement.
No scalpel is used. There are no stitches. And while the procedure is sometimes referred as fat injection, we do not inject the living fat but rather gently place the fat using very thin blunt tipped tubes known as cannulas. These cannulas are similar to the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen. There have been many recent improvements in fat transplantation – grafting techniques, providing for an accurate and long lasting result.
Breast augmentation with fat grafting (autologous fat transfer) uses a patient’s own fat as micro living implants. We perform a very fine detailed gentle transfer of the fat to sculpt and enhance the breasts. Natural Breast augmentation using a patients’ own fat can result in a cup to a cup and a half bra size enlargement per session. In order to achieve augmentation beyond a cup to a cup and a half, multiple sessions should be planned with a few months in between. Those patients who prefer to have larger changes with only one session need to consider traditional augmentation with saline or silicone implants.
Fat transfer is a natural alternative to breast implants. With autologous fat breast augmentation, there is no implant to feel. Candidates for breast augmentation with fat cells must have no personal or first degree relative (e.g. mother, sister) history of breast cancer, have a good volume of unwanted fat available and must not be considering synthetic implants.
Autologous fat can be placed differentially into the areas which need it the most. For example, if the upper quadrants of the breasts would benefit from more augmentation than the lower, then more fat can be placed there. The patient is awake during the procedure and if she desires, she can actually see the results during the procedure.
Our patients are able to quickly return to their normal activities.
