Doctors are currently seeing an uptick in patients requesting cosmetic procedures, with the most commonly requested procedure being breast augmentation. While some women are seeking larger breast sizes, others are seeking smaller sizes with a more natural look and feel. A lot of women are looking for more natural sizes and don’t really want huge breasts.
Currently, new innovations in breast augmentation are providing better results. Additionally, these procedures are less invasive and cause less pain that previous augmentation techniques.
While there is no true non-surgical breast augmentation procedure, fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that is done under local anesthesia. This means that patients do not have to undergo general anesthesia, thus eliminating many risks.
Fat transfer is a wonderful option for those who want to increase their cup size by one or one and a half sizes. Additional benefits include body contouring, as the procedure removes fat from another body part. Also, there is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection since a patient’s own fat is uses, rather than a foreign substance or object.
Fat transfer can also enhance the look and shape of breast implants. Through this procedure, the cleavage can be enhanced, or a better profile can be created.
The fat transfer procedure entails fat being removed from a part of the body that has excess fat. This fat is removed using a gentle liposuction technique. The fat is then separated and processed, with the separated fat cells being injected into the breasts to add volume and fullness.
In addition to only using local anesthetics, fat transfer augmentation offers several other benefits. It can be a relatively quick procedure, with a very short recovery time, which allows patients to return to their normal schedules within a few days. There is also minimal scarring and inflammation.
Says Dr. Thomas Wright of the Laser, Lipo and Vein Center, “We have found that breast augmentation through fat transfer can be a great option for women looking for more a more natural look and feel.” He continues, “The fat transfer procedure has far fewer risks and possible complications than traditional implants, making it safer. Patients are very satisfied with the look and feel, especially those who do not want huge increases in breast size.”
