Breast augmentation is focused on helping women become happier with the shape and size of their breasts. When you are considering breast augmentation, it is important to work with a board-certified plastic surgeon such as our doctors at Evolv Medical Aesthetics. This ensures that you will be getting the most advanced implant technologies and advanced augmentation techniques to get the shape and size you want for the body you have dreamed of.
What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
This type of breast augmentation uses liposuction techniques to remove excess fat from other parts of the body and then injects that fat into the breasts. It is the safest and most natural material to add to your body. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions since it is your own body tissue. It will also ensure that your breasts look and feel natural, rather than giving you an unnatural effect. There are no scars with fat augmentation, and there is no rippling or thinning over time. Also, no maintenance is required for this natural breast augmentation, unlike silicone implants.
However, this type of breast augmentation is not very beneficial for women who want major changes to their breast size, shape, and contour. Also, this process is more complex than that of getting normal silicone or saline implants.
Fat Transfer Acts as An Alternative to Implants
Fat transfer is a less invasive way to augment the breasts. The transplanted fat cells can survive and expand. It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures done because women love the results. It is very beneficial because it creates a natural look that uses no foreign objects.
How does the procedure work?
At the consultation appointment with one of our doctors. You two will decide on the amount of fat needed to augment your breasts for the desired look, then you will choose which area of the body will be used to harvest excess fat from.
After the treatment plan is created, your doctor will perform liposuction to remove unwanted fat from a specific location to create a more pleasing shape in that area. The harvested fat is then purified through a centrifuge and is optimized for injection. The fat is then injected into the breasts in precise locations with just the right amount of fat to create a more aesthetic breast contour. Some of the fat won’t take to the breasts, which is why many physicians will inject a bit more than the desired result. This fat will be naturally metabolized into the body. Throughout several weeks, you will see your stunning results.
Who is a good candidate?
This type of breast augmentation is not ideal for women who want major changes to the contours of their breasts. However, if you only seek for one cup size in augmentation, you might be a good candidate. The fat transfer is not meant to create a large degree of change like the breast implant.
You also need to have enough fat to be taken during the liposuction process. You need to have excess fat in the butt, thigh, or belly area that can be grafted into the breasts. Women also need to have strong elasticity and tone to prevent sagging. Though women can have breast lift surgery to address stretch marks and sagging, fat augmentation is not meant to lift sagging breasts. To know if you are a good candidate for this procedure, consult with one of our doctors at Evolv Medical Aesthetics.
