Breast augmentation is a popular procedure that is usually done with the use of silicone or saline breast implants. But breast augmentation can also be carried out using a patient’s own unwanted fat, by means of a technique known as fat transfer. But how does it work, and what are the benefits of a fat transfer breast augmentation.
Fat transfer breast augmentation
Fat transfer breast augmentation uses your own fat cells to create a subtle, natural appearing increase in bust size. The fat is harvested using a liposuction technique, processed, and then injected into the breasts to create the desired enhancement. Fat transfer breast augmentation is recommended for women seeking a modest increase in breast size.
Benefits of fat transfer breast augmentation
- Improves overall body contours: Fat transfer breast augmentation involves harvesting fat from other regions of the body such as the thighs and hips, and transferring it to the breasts. It therefore has the additional benefit of improving the contours of the areas from which fat is removed.
- It’s natural: Fat transfer breast augmentation is a natural alternative to implants, since it uses a patient’s own fat cells.
- Less risk: Using the body’s own fat cells instead of introducing a foreign substance into the bodyminimizes any chance of an allergic reaction. It also reduces the chance of possible risks or complications. Fat transfer breast augmentation is a safe alternative for women that don’t need breast implants.
