Adding Volume to the Breasts by Transferring Fatty Tissue
Fat-transfer breast augmentation is a newer type of breast augmentation. Instead of using artificial implants, the plastic surgeon uses fatty tissue from your own body to enlarge your breasts.
Women place a lot of importance on the appearance of their breasts. Not being comfortable with the way your breasts look can have a large impact on your self-esteem, confidence levels, and even sex drive. That’s why it’s so important to feel good about your breasts.
In fat-transfer breast augmentation, instead of using artificial implants like saline and silicone implants, your own body fat is used. It is a two-part surgery where Dr. Pittman first uses liposuction to extract fatty tissue from certain body areas that have an excess of it. After the fat is purified, he then deposits it into your breasts through injections.
This surgery is a great choice for women looking for a slight increase in their breast size and projection. The technique is growing in popularity as more and more people are looking for less invasive methods to enhance their beauty.
Why Choose Fat-Transfer Breast Augmentation over Implants?
Although saline and silicone implants are very safe, they are still foreign objects that are being introduced into your body. Even the knowledge that something artificial is inside your body can be enough to make you uncomfortable. With fat transfer, the material used is natural and from your own body, so no foreign substances are needed.
Some patients feel that the implants can sometimes feel rubbery to the touch. With traditional implants, you’ll also have to manage the risks of rupture or rejection by the body and the potential consequences these can cause.
This procedure may be especially ideal for women who do not have a lot of breast or skin tissue. With implants, a smaller amount of tissue can lead to the appearance of rippling in the breasts, and this is not an issue with fat transfer.
The fat-transfer breast augmentation combines two highly sought-after plastic surgery procedures into one. It extracts the unwanted fat from your problem areas with liposuction, helping you lose a few inches and achieve a better figure. It also adds volume to your breasts for a fuller look.
Fat-transfer breast augmentation is a rather cost-effective way to get your breasts enlarged. For traditional breast augmentation, you would have to pay for the implants, which are expensive to manufacture. You would also need to pay for them to be replaced at some point. With natural breast augmentation, these will not be issues. You will also get the advantages of liposuction and breast augmentation without having to pay for a separate liposuction procedure.
