Adding Volume to the Breasts by Transferring Fatty Tissue
Women put a lot of pressure on themselves regarding the appearance of their breasts. Not being okay with the way your breasts look can have an impact on your self-esteem, self-confidence, and even sex drive.
Breast augmentation can help you enhance the look of your breasts to match your ideal appearance. Fat-transfer breast augmentation is a more natural and body-friendly type of breast augmentation.
Fat-Transfer Breast Augmentation
Unlike the traditional breast-augmentation methods, instead of using artificial implants like saline and silicone implants, fat-transfer breast augmentation makes use of your own natural excess body fat.
In this three-part surgery, Dr. Martin uses liposuction to extract fatty tissue from certain areas that have excess fat, purifies the harvested fat, and then deposits the fat in your breasts through injections.
This surgery is a great choice for people looking for a less substantial increase in their breast size and projection than would be offered with implants. This surgery is growing in popularity, sine more and more people are looking for less invasive methods to enhance their beauty.
Why Pick Fat-Transfer Breast Augmentation over Traditional Implants?
Although saline and silicone implants are virtually safe, they are still foreign objects that are being introduced into your body. This concept can make some patients feel uncomfortable. With traditional implants, you’ll also have to manage the risks of rupture or rejection by the body and the consequences that these can cause.
With the fat-transfer technique, there are no foreign objects placed. Additionally, there is zero risk of rupture because there is nothing that could experience rupture. Because the fat comes from the patient’s own body, there is also no risk of rejection.
Benefits of Fat-Transfer Breast Augmentation
The fat-transfer breast-augmentation surgery combines two highly sought-after cosmetic surgeries into one. It extracts the unwanted fat from your problem areas (helping you lose a few inches) and adds it to your breasts so they can be fuller and shapelier.
It is also a rather cost-effective way to get your breasts enlarged. For a traditional breast augmentation, you would have to pay for the implants, which can be expensive. With the fat-transfer technique, the fat used is from your own body, making the procedure less expensive. It is also cost-effective because it offers liposuction and breast augmentation in a single procedure.
