Traditional breast augmentation methods involve placing saline or silicone implants to add volume and shape to small breasts. A modern alternative to breast implants has emerged; it is known as natural breast augmentation because it uses autologous fat (the patient’s own fat) to enlarge the breasts.
The fat transfer technique is not a novel idea; it is already used in other plastic surgery applications, such as filling in facial lines and wrinkles, and adding volume to the buttocks.
Dr. David Sayah, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, has seen great success using fat transfer techniques with his breast augmentation patients.
Before examining the advantages of natural breast augmentation, it is important to understand what happens during the operation.
Dr. Sayah removes surplus unwanted fat from another area of the body such as the abdomen, thighs or buttocks using liposuction techniques. The fat is purified and prepared for re-injection. Dr. Sayah then injects the fat into the breasts to add shape and volume. The fat will develop a natural blood supply to thrive and survive for years to come.
Why Patients Love Natural Breast Augmentation
Natural breast augmentation is a great idea for women that want subtle results. Natural breast augmentation provides a modest increase in breast size and cleavage that looks and feels softer.
From a procedural standpoint, the recovery from natural breast augmentation with fat transfer is typically quicker than that of traditional implant placement. Also, there are no incisions made on the breasts (only injections), so scarring is not a concern.
Natural breast augmentation is an attractive option to women that feel uncomfortable with the placement of artificial breast implant devices. Dr. Sayah only uses FDA-approved breast implants with a long history of safety; however, with any implanted medical device, there is a possibility of complications. Some women simply reject the idea of having a medical device placed in their body.
Finally, one of the most exciting benefits of breast augmentation with fat transfer is that it offers additional body sculpting benefits, which are appealing to women with unwanted fat on the abdomen, hips or thighs. Not only do the breasts look bigger, but the donor fat area looks slimmer and more sculpted.
