One of the most common aesthetic desires is to have a bigger bust size. Many women seek to increase the fullness of their breasts to create the shape they want. This has led breast augmentation to become one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures.
While most breast augmentations are performed using silicone or saline implants, many patients want to have a more natural option. Fortunately, there is a way to increase the size of your breasts using your own body fat. Learn more about breast augmentation with fat transfer here.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Breast augmentation with fat transfer is a plastic surgery procedure that uses your own body fat to increase your breast size. This procedure combines both liposuction and fat grafting to enhance your figure.
During a fat transfer breast augmentation, liposuction is used to harvest fat cells from certain areas around the body. This can include the stomach, thighs, flanks, and the back. This fat is gently suctioned from the specified area, purified, and then injected into the breast to add fullness. The fat harvested during a fat transfer procedure is purified before being injected back into the body. An added benefit that most patients love is that the liposuction sites are thinned and sculpted to refine your figure.
Fat Transfer vs. Implants
While both breast implants and fat transfer to the breasts can increase the size of your breasts, fat transfer is a more subtle option. Patients looking for a dramatic change in the size of their breasts may not see the results they want using fat transfer. Fat transfer adds a subtle increase in volume, whereas implants can add a more significant increase.
Augmentation with fat transfer can present unique benefits for patients. It can help you drop stubborn fat from areas like the stomach and thighs while slightly enlarging the breasts. Breast augmentation using implants only changes the appearance of your breasts while leaving the rest of your figure as it is.
