Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States, and the most common method of augmentation is implant placement.
Breast implants are versatile. They can be round or teardrop shaped. They can be filled with cohesive silicone gel that mimics the feel of natural breast tissue or with saline that can be adjusted after they have been placed. They can be secured above or below muscles in the chest, and they can produce a noticeably more symmetrical and appealing bust. However, while breast implants offer several benefits, not everyone interested in breast enhancement is interested in this method.
Is there an alternative to breast implants for women who would like to go larger but would prefer to not have an implant placed? Yes, there is.
Fat Grafting For Breast Augmentation
Fat grafting for breast augmentation utilizes fat taken from your body to improve the size and shape of the breasts. This method of breast augmentation tends to produce natural-looking results and helps to maintain the natural feel of breast tissue. Changes with this option tend to be more subtle, but can improve symmetry and increase projection to help produce a look that is much more complementary to surrounding features.
With fat grafting, liposuction is used to remove stubborn deposits of fat from the thighs, hips, abdomen, or other areas with fat to spare. This serves the dual purpose of collecting fat for augmentation and ideally contouring another area of the body, allowing fat transfer breast augmentation to help tone and trim the frame in addition to enhancing the bust. Once collected, fat is processed, prepared, and carefully injected into precise locations throughout the breasts.
Fat grafting can create natural-looking contours and help to preserve the natural feel of your breasts, but it is not the ideal solution for every need.
