Using your own fat a natural breast augmentation is an effective way to increase breast size without the need for traditional silicone breast implants. Using your own body fat extracted with Vaser Liposuction for a fat transfer, can be a great tool to enhance the volume and shape of the breasts for suitable candidates.
What is a breast augmentation using fat transfer?
Breast fat transfer is an alternative to traditional breast implants for those who desire more volume, an increase in cup size, and to enhance breast shape. Those best suited for the cosmetic surgery procedure are women who have an excess amount of fat elsewhere in the body that can be removed by liposuction, as well as realistic expectations about the results fat grafting to the breasts can achieve.
During the breast augmentation procedure, the doctor removes unwanted body fat from the determined areas using Vaser Liposuction. Before the fat grafting takes place, the fat is purified, and the healthy fat cells are separated. These harvested fat cells are then used for the injections into the breast tissue.
Why have a breast fat transfer procedure instead of silicone breast implants?
One of the benefits of using Vaser Liposuction technology is that the entry points are kept small with no need to make large incisions for the device to transfer the injected fat. These small incisions are located as discretely as possible to minimise visible scarring.
Breast augmentation using fat transfer produces different results when compared to the results from a traditional breast implant procedure. The finished product of a fat transfer will be more natural looking and subtle, so it is important to always set realistic expectations before deciding to proceed, says Dr Francesco Fascetti.
Undergoing a fat transfer to breast procedure takes an average of 2 to 4 hours, depending on the individual patient and how many areas of the body are also being treated with Vaser Liposuction.
Recovery times vary, with most patients able to return to their normal activities after around 5 days. The final results from having a breast fat transfer procedure will become more visible as the swelling and bruising subsides in the weeks following surgery.
