How many times have you thought, "If I could just take the fat from my thighs/hips/belly and put it in my breasts..."? Fortunately, scientific and technological advances are now turning this fantasy into a reality. Dr. Trott has spent the past few months researching and studying this new innovative technique which originated in South Florida. In the past, this procedure could only be done with multiple surgeries that transferred small volumes of fat at a time. But now, with the use of the nonsurgical BRAVA™ Breast Enhancement System and newer, gentler fat harvesting techniques, plastic surgeons can use much larger volumes of liposuctioned fat to augment your breasts-even bring you up an entire cup size with one procedure!
Candidates for this natural breast augmentation procedure include women who would like to go up a cup size but do not want breast implants, as well as those who are undergoing reconstruction for breast cancer. (It is also assumed, of course, that you've got the fat to spare!)
Since Dr. Trott has been specializing in breast and body contouring for over six years, this procedure is a natural addition to her practice. We would love to see you for a consultation and share more information on this exciting new technique! We look forward to seeing you soon!
Benefits of Natural Breast Augmentation
- Ability to shape and sculpt the breasts
- Minimal incisions
- Reduced scarring
- No risk of capsular contracture
In addition to improving the appearance of the breasts, patients are also able to lose unwanted fat from the lower body in the same procedure, for an overall more sculpted appearance.
Candidates for Natural Breast Augmentation
This procedure is ideal for nearly any woman who is considering breast augmentation but does not want to use saline or silicone implants. It is important for women to be in good overall health and have enough body fat available to augment the breasts. Like any other cosmetic procedures, women should have realistic expectations for this procedure.
Many women choose to have this procedure performed after achieving unsatisfactory results from an implant procedure. It is also highly effective for women with breast cancer who must undergo a mastectomy, as fat transfer has been used for many years to reconstruct removed breasts.
Natural Breast Augmentation Procedure
Natural breast augmentation through fat transfer involves two surgical procedures performed on the same day. First, the fat to be used in the breasts is harvested from another area of the body, most commonly from the waist, buttocks or thighs. This is done by suctioning the fat out through a cannula, similar to the techniques used in liposuction. The harvested fat cells are purified and then injected into small incisions within the breasts.
The whole procedure takes four to six hours to perform. Patients can usually return to work and other light activities after a week. In some cases, one to three fat transfer procedures may be needed in order to achieve desired results. Injected fat may be absorbed by the body and not deliver expected results during the initial procedure.
