What is fat transfer breast augmentation?
Fat grafting for breast augmentation has become a popular surgery in recent years. The requirement for implants can be avoided with this procedure. It is less invasive as compared to traditional surgery involving implants. There is reduced downtime and results are more natural looking. Fat grafting can be used for sculpting breasts. Surgeon can narrow curves where required and add more volume wherever desired.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Women looking to increase the size of their breasts by 1 to 2 cup sizes are strong candidates for breast augmentation through fat grafting. However, it is imperative that you have surplus fat tissue in donor sites for fat transfer.
However, patients need to be aware that every woman is not an ideal candidate for fat grafting breast augmentation procedure. This is especially true for women looking to substantially increase their breast size.
Fat transfer breast enhancement cosmetic surgery offers a high success rate since it involves the use of your own surplus fat cells. Gentle liposuction technique will be employed by the surgeon for removing excess fat tissue from donor site. This is usually the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs.
Tumescent fluid is injected by the surgeon during the procedure in the treatment area. This is a combination of adrenaline and local anesthetics. It helps in numbing the treatment area. It also helps in controlling the bleeding. Cannula is used for suctioning the fat.
Autologous Fat Transfer
The surgeon will purify the fat and then implant it precisely into the natural tissue folds of your breasts for creating fuller and more proportionate breasts. Small incisions are involved in the procedure that will heal without any scarring. Advanced techniques are employed by the surgeon for successfully harvesting fatty tissues and providing the desired level of breast grafting.
How Does Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation Work?
Fat grafting breast enhancement plastic surgery is a less invasive way of creating curvier and fuller breasts. These breasts feel and look like the own natural breast tissue of a patient. The procedure is completed in two stages. The surgeon first removes surplus fat cells from the donor site through a traditional liposuction technique.
The fat cells are injected after purification in the natural breast tissue for enhancing fullness and volume. Curves can be created wherever the patients want them. This helps in creating breasts that are larger in size and more attractively shaped.
Breast tissue expansion may be performed on women that have small and tight breast tissue. This is a special system in which the breast tissue is expanded for creating enough room for donor fat cells. Increase in the size of the breasts will be proportionate to the amount of donor fat available for reinjecting in the breast. The goal here is to create proportionate and symmetrical breasts.
