Using Your Own Fat for Breast Enlargement
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could take fat from unwanted places on your body and put it somewhere else? Someplace that could use a little boost? Women have been saying this for years, and now it is a reality with autologous fat transfer.
Fat can now be removed from unwanted areas on the body and injected into other areas to help shape and contour problem spots. One of those areas is the breast. Traditional surgery for breast augmentation can leave breasts looking stiff and unnatural. Now, there is another alternative. One that has the added benefit of removing fat from other areas of the body. Breast augmentation through fat transfer has many advantages over the traditional breast augmentation using saline or silicone implants. The results are natural looking and feeling. And because it is natural, there is no risk of allergic reaction. This is fat from your own body, so your body recognizes that. As you gain or lose weight you will gain or lose volume, just as you would with your natural breasts. Autologous fat transfer is often called lipo-injection. Unwanted fat is usually taken from the stomach or thighs. This is done with a syringe or a procedure which is similar to typical liposuction. The fat is then treated and injected into the breast. All of this will be done using a local anesthesia. The anesthesia will last 18-36 hours. Most patients require only Tylenol for pain when they leave the center.
This type of breast augmentation is often used for women who would like to regain volume after child birth or women who would like to gain one or two cup sizes. If more volume is desired, the procedure can be repeated. Because of the gentle nature of the surgery, recovery time is minimal and allows for repeat procedures to be done soon after the first. This type of breast enlargement requires no incisions. There will be no scarring to hide as there is with traditional breast augmentation. Breast enlargement using fat transfer is not for everyone. Women without a significant store of fat or who are looking for a large increase in size may want to opt for a more traditional breast implant procedure. Timeless Surgical can help you decide what type of breast augmentation is right for you.
