Does the idea of natural breast augmentation sound appealing to you? It’s possible with a procedure called fat transfer breast augmentation, an innovative technique that uses your fat to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. However, it’s important to know if fat transfer aligns with your goals and expectations when it comes to choosing between natural breast augmentation and breast implants.
How To Determine If You’re a Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
In this blog post, we’ll help you evaluate whether fat transfer breast augmentation might be right for you. Consider the following factors and then discuss your choice with a board-certified surgeon.
Do you have enough fat? Women often overlook this factor when considering natural breast augmentation. The fat transfer breast augmentation procedure uses liposuction to harvest fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, arms, or thighs. The fat is then processes through a specialized machine to remove impurities before Dr. Johnson injects that pristine fat into the breasts in small applications to ensure the most natural, even results are achieved. Lean patients with minimal excess fat typically are not suitable candidates for natural breast augmentation.
How much do you want to increase breast size? Fat transfer breast augmentation is an option for women who want a more modest increase in the size of their breasts. Usually, this means an increase of about 1 to 2 bra cup sizes. It’s essential to have realistic expectations about the results that the natural breast augmentation procedure can produce.
Are you concerned about asymmetrical breasts? Fat transfer breast augmentation can improve the shape of the breasts and address minor asymmetry.
Do you lead an active lifestyle? If you run, play tennis, or lead a generally active lifestyle, breast augmentation using fat is an attractive option. Large breast implants often hinder physical activity and cause a sore neck or shoulders because of their weight.
Is having breasts that look and feel natural a priority? Even though silicone gel breast implants look and feel remarkably like natural breast tissue, they can’t match fat transfer breast augmentation when comparing results.
Do you want to avoid having to replace implants? At some point, traditional breast augmentation patients must undergo a follow-up surgical procedure to replace or remove breast implants. Even though the body may naturally absorb fat that’s transferred to the breasts, there is no need to have secondary surgery. Women who get silicone gel implants must also schedule periodic imaging tests to ensure the implants remain intact.
Besides enhancing the shape and size of the breasts, natural breast augmentation includes the benefit of reducing fat in areas where it’s unwanted. Dr. Johnson’s expertise in liposuction is highly regarded throughout the Pacific Northwest.
