Enhance the Breasts Using Fat Grafts
As you progress through the natural aging process, your breasts may begin to sag or look asymmetrical with the rest of your body. This may also happen as a result of losing a significant amount of weight or after giving birth. When the aesthetic appeal of a woman’s chest begins to degrade, they may begin to feel insecure or experience a significant decrease in confidence.
Women who aren’t born with the ideal breast shape and size may need a little extra help achieving the contours they desire. Plastic surgery is the best, fastest, and most effective way to achieve the perfect pair of breasts to match your body shape and type. If you’re interested in undergoing a surgical procedure to improve your breasts, a breast augmentation is the perfect solution for you.
A breast augmentation can be performed in a number of different ways. Your surgeon may use breast implants composed of either saline or silicone and insert them into the breasts. This is a very popular option, but it comes with certain risks and side effects. The implants may leak inside the body or the patient could have an allergic reaction.
There is, however, another method that is safer and less invasive. This method is known as a fat grafting breast augmentation, and makes use of your own natural fat to enhance the look of your breasts.
What Is Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation?
A fat grafting breast augmentation involves harvesting a patients fat from areas that have excess fat cells. During the procedure, your surgeon will purify the fat cells so that only the cells with the best quality remains. Your surgeon will then transfer the purified fat cells to the breasts to improve their shape and size.
This technique is perfect for those patients who want to get rid of stubborn fat in specific problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. In addition to modifying the breasts, it will also enhance your contours in these other parts of the body.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
Your surgeon will use liposuction to harvest the excess fat from designated parts of the body to store and purify them so that only the highest quality cells remain. This process is known as fat grafting.
When the patient is ready, the remaining fat cells are injected back into the patient’s breast. The fat cells will grow and multiply in the breasts and enhance their shape, size, and appearance, making them look larger and well-contoured.
The fat grafting technique is the preferred method of performing the breast augmentation as it uses the patient’s own fat from the body and no foreign or artificial substances like the saline or silicone implants.
There is no chance of the patient developing an allergic reaction to the fat grafting method as the fat that is injected into the breasts of the patient is the same fat taken from the patient’s own body. The risks are minimal and the results are exceptional.
Why Is It the Preferred Method of Breast Augmentation?
Utilizing this method provides benefits to both the breasts and the body as a whole. The fat harvested will allow your surgeon to improve the breasts while toning another part of the body. A surgeon with a skilled hand and close attention to detail can carefully manage the fat injections to provide a shape and contour that looks more natural than other methods.
