Board Certified Plastic Surgeons At Smith Plastic Surgery Institute Give Patients The Best Of Both Worlds With Natural Breast Augmentation
There are many ways to augment or enlarge the breasts. The most common way is to place silicone or saline breast implants (breast implantation, breast augmentation.) However, Dr. Smith can also transfer fat from other areas of your body, such as your waist or abdomen, to your breasts for breast enlargement or breast augmentation.
Since fat is the patient’s own “natural” tissue, fat transfer to the breast has been termed “Natural Breast Augmentation” or “Natural Breast Implants.” To fully understand the difference between breast implantation with silicone breast implants and breast augmentation with fat transfer to the breasts, it is essential to read the section on breast augmentation (breast implantation.)
What Are The Advantages Of Using Fat For Breast Enlargement?
One of the main advantages of natural breast enlargement is the safety of using the patient’s own fat tissue. Breasts consist mainly of fat and mammary glands, so when we transfer the fat, the breasts become larger with the same tissue they are made of. This is where the term “Natural Breast Augmentation” is derived from.
Another excellent benefit of using fat from the patient’s body for breast augmentation is that the breasts look and feel very natural. Usually, we harvest the fat from the waist and abdomen, but we can use it anywhere the patient chooses as long as there is enough fat. The patient improves in each area from which we harvest the fat, usually a narrower abdomen, waist, and larger breasts.
Another advantage is that the procedure uses only two tiny poke holes to inject the fat, so there are no scars.* Breast augmentation with implants always requires an incision that leaves a small scar.*
Are There Any Disadvantages Of Fat Transfer To The Breasts?
When Dr. Smith transfers fat to the breasts, the skin fills up like an inflating balloon. Eventually, the skin will be completely tight and cannot hold more fat. At this point, no more fat can be injected. Not all of the fat lives. Usually, only 30% to 60% of the transferred fat will live so that the breasts will shrink back a little.
Because of this, fat transfer works best in women who have been pregnant because their skin was stretched out from the pregnancy, and their skin envelope can hold more fat. As a general rule of thumb, fat transfer to the breast can only enlarge the breast by one cup size, and therefore fat transfer will not work well in a patient with A-cup-sized breasts who has never had a child and wants anything more than a small B-cup.
What If I Want Larger Breasts? Will Natural Augmentation Work?
For patients who want more than one cup size enlargement, silicone or saline breast implants (breast implantation) are a much better option. Another major disadvantage of “natural breast enhancement surgery” is that the patient must have some fat to transfer, and fat transfer will not work in a skinny patient with no fat to transfer to her breasts.
Due to the longer length of time, fat transfer to the breasts costs more than routine breast augmentation. The result offsets that Natural Breast Augmentation Nevada is more expensive and that more than one area of the patient’s body is improved. Natural breast enlargement surgery improves more than just the breast. It improves the entire figure.*
How Long Does Natural Breast Augmentation Surgery Take?
Natural Breast Augmentation surgery in Las Vegas takes much longer than routine breast implant surgery because the fat must be harvested with liposuction, spun down and purified, and injected into the breasts. Usually, this takes about 2.5 to 3 hours. Breast implant surgery usually takes only about 45 minutes to an hour.*
