Is Breast Fat Grafting Better Than Implants?

Breast Fat GraftingIf you want to change the size or shape of your breasts, you may have thought breast implants were your only option. However, breast fat grafting is a natural option for breast augmentation. 

Which breast augmentation method is best, between implants and fat grafting, depends on the individual. A consultation with your doctor can help determine the right method for you; in the meantime, learn more about breast fat grafting. 

The Benefits of Fat Grafting 

While breast implants typically come from materials like silicone and saline, the fat utilized in breast fat grafting is obtained from you. This severely decreases the chances of experiencing an allergic reaction to the augmentation. 

With breast implants, there are risks involving the implants, such as implant hardening or increased risk of blood clot formation. There are none of these risks with fat grafting. 

The procedure also has the added benefit of producing subtle results. Because of the limit on the amount of fat that can be harvested and inserted into the application site, the increase in size of the breasts is also relatively small. 

Lastly, the fat cells successfully inserted into the breasts remain there permanently. Conversely, implants have a lifespan that may last around ten years, after which replacement is needed. 

To learn more about the benefits of fat grafting or how the benefits apply to you, make sure you speak with your doctor. 

When Breast Fat Grafting Is Not For You

While fat grafting has many benefits, it may not be for everyone. If you’re looking to drastically increase the size of your breasts, this procedure may not help you get the results you’re looking for. Furthermore, fat grafting requires an adequate amount of fat. You may not be suited for the procedure if you lack enough fat deposits for the graft. 

It is best to speak with your doctor to determine your candidacy.
