For those seeking a breast augmentation that will produce a natural look and feel, we suggest the implant-free fat transfer procedure. This exciting procedure is actually a combination of liposuction and augmentation that produces two-fold results: body contouring at the harvest site and augmentation of the breasts.
This breast augmentation technique is an outpatient procedure and it is minimally invasive. It is usually performed under local anesthesia. Fat to be used for augmentation is removed from body areas that have extra fat—usually the waist, abdomen or thighs. The fat is removed using a gentle liposuction technique.
This fat is then processed and separated, with the fat cells often undergoing treatment with stem cells to allow for better healing. This processed fat is then injected into the breast area to augment and enlarge them.
Because the fat is harvested from areas of the body that have excess fat, you will receive the contouring benefits of liposuction in addition to breast augmentation. Also, because the fat is injected into the breasts using tiny cannulas or needles, there are no incisions or scars.
By using your own fat, you will not run the risks of allergic reaction or rejection that may occur with the use of implants. Fat transfer augmentation also has a much shorter recovery time than implant surgery. Your recovery time will be a few weeks, not months.
Says Dr. Thomas Wright, medical director at the Laser Lipo and Vein Center, “I believe the fat transfer procedure is extremely beneficial to those patients looking for a natural look and feel for the results of breast augmentation.”
He continues, “The fact that this is a more natural procedure provides healing and recovery benefits. Additionally, patients also receive that added benefit of contouring and slimming results, which is extremely beneficial to the overall results and improve the patient’s figure and shape.”
