Breast Enlargement with Fat Transfer
Fat transfer to the breasts has become a increasingly reliable procedure over the past few years, as the methods of fat preparation have continued to improve.
Fat is harvested using regular liposuction techniques from many areas of the body such as the hips, thighs, abdomen, and waist, before being processed so only ideal cells are reused. It's then carefully injected into the breasts using a micro-cannula technique.
The size of the breasts can actually be increased by one full cup size in many instances, resulting in a noticeable improvement without undergoing surgery. The absence of any foreign objects being inserted into your body also eliminates the risk of allergic reaction, which, while quite rare, is still a small possibility.
Even though breast implants can give a larger, more predictable result, patients that do not wish to undergo surgery have been happy with the result of fat transfer to the breasts.
Breast Implant Placement Choices
Our plastic surgeons will work closely with you to help you determine the ideal incision placement for your breast implants.
Typically, breast implants are placed sub-muscularly, which offers the most support and helps hide evidence that the procedure has taken place.
Breast implants can also be placed in a sub-glandular position, which is is typically only done in the instance of an atypical anatomy, or for those who utilize their pectoral muscles frequently (female body-builders will often opt for sub-glandular placement over the sub-muscular placement for this exact reason).
The final option is called a dual-plane placement, where the implant is inserted partially underneath the pectoral muscle wall and partially underneath the breast tissue. This option is intended for women that need fullness added to the upper part of their breasts, and allows them to avoid a breast lift procedure.
