5 Reasons Why Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation is On the Rise
Also called “natural breast augmentation,” fat transfer breast augmentation is a procedure which is quickly growing in popularity. The procedure increases the size of the breasts and can create a more balanced or appealing shape without the use of breast implants. There are several reasons why our patients are choosing fat transfer over breast implants. Here are a few of the benefits of fat transfer breast augmentation.
One of the main reasons why patients choose fat transfer breast augmentation is because the results both look and feel natural. This keeps up with the current trend of a more natural look and meets the preferences of many patients. For those looking for a more subtle change to the appearance of their breasts, fat transfer breast augmentation may be their best option.
No large scars
Unlike traditional breast augmentation, fat transfer breast augmentation does not require large incisions, meaning scars are minimal. Fat transfer works by first utilizing liposuction, which does require small incisions so that a cannula can be inserted into the treatment area. However, there are no large incisions required to transfer fat to the breasts. Instead, fat is inserted by injection. This means that the procedure results in only small, inconspicuous scars.
Many patients choose natural breast augmentation because they wish to change the appearance of their breasts and tone other areas of the body in one procedure. The liposuction that is necessary for collecting fat to be transferred has the added benefit of sculpting the body, creating a contour that meets the patient’s goals. Typically, liposuction is used for the abdomen, back, thighs, or under the arms, and permanently removes fat cells from these areas. The results of a fat transfer breast augmentation, then, are both increased breast size and a more toned, athletic appearance through the rest of the body.
Easily adjust your breast size
If traditional breast augmentation patients later decide that they are unhappy with the size of their implants, their only option is a revision breast augmentation, which requires another surgery. Fat transfer breast augmentation, however, makes it easier to increase the size of the breasts over time, meaning that you can decide to adjust the size of your breasts without requiring another surgery.
Combine fat transfer with implants
While it may sound counter-intuitive, many patients actually choose to combine fat transfer with breast implants. This is beneficial for leaner patients who do not have enough fat to reach their goal breast size through fat transfer alone. It can also be chosen to essentially disguise breast implants and make them less noticeable.
