Keep reading to learn more…
What is fat grafting breast augmentation?
Fat grafting breast augmentation (also known as fat transfer breast augmentation) is a procedure where fat is harvested from multiple areas of the body (most commonly the hips, flanks, belly, or thighs) and transferred to the breasts to add fullness and lift. This minimally-invasive procedure has two major benefits – slimming stubborn areas of fat and enhancing the breasts – all in one procedure and without the need for implants!
How is does the fat grafting breast augmentation procedure work?
Our fat grafting breast augmentation procedure is performed by Dr. Devol, the newest member of the Skin NV team and an expert in minimally invasive aesthetic procedures. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthetic with or without pronox.
Step #1: Areas of fat deposits (donor sites) are selected and marked for removal.
Step #2: Using a special method of liposuction that preserves living fat cells, the excess fat is extracted from the donor sites.
Step #3: After the extracted fat is cleansed and purified, the healthiest fat cells are used for injection.
Step #4: Dr. Devol will carefully inject the droplets of fat into the breast tissue using a thin metal tube called a cannula.
What are the benefits of natural breast augmentation over implants?
Where do we begin?! For starters, fat grafting breast augmentation is a minimally invasive, procedure that does not require general anesthesia and transfers unwanted fat to enhance the breasts! As if that’s not enough, other benefits include:
- There is no surgical scarring.
- There are no artificial materials implanted in your body.
- Enhanced breasts feel more natural than saline or silicone implants.
- Patients are not at risk for surgical complications such as capsular contracture, rippling, or an implant rupture.
- The harvested fat is rich in stem cells that will improve the texture and pliability of the skin.
Who is a good candidate for the fat grafting breast augmentation?
Fat grafting breast augmentation is ideal for women who have adequate fat donor sites and want a natural solution for breast enhancement. Clients who are interested in fat grafting breast augmentation will have an in-depth consultation with Dr. Devol where she will assess areas of the body and determine if they are a candidate for the procedure. During this meeting, Dr. Devol will also determine what areas of the body fat will be removed from.
