Most people wanting bigger breasts go to a plastic surgeon and have breast implants done. The implants are inserted through an incision placed beneath the breast or in the armpit area. The end result can be slightly bigger breasts or massively bigger breasts.
All Natural Breast Augmentation
If you want to have a slight change in the shape and size of your breasts, consider fat transfer. Fat transfer is completely hypoallergenic because the fat used comes from somewhere else in your body. It can come from the abdomen, thighs, hips or buttocks and is removed via liposuction. Once that is nicely contoured, the doctor then turns to your breasts. The procedure to put fat into the breasts is tedious and painstaking. It doesn’t allow for huge changes in the breast but can alter the shape of the breast and increase the breast by perhaps a cup size.
Fat Transfer to Breast is Less Invasive Than Breast Implant Surgery
This procedure involves no incision and is done through multiple needle sticks. The fat removed by liposuction is treated with centrifugation. The broken cells, red blood cells and connective tissue are removed, leaving behind a buttery smooth collection of fat cells. These fat cells are loaded into a syringe in rows for injection.
The surgeon starts by injecting a small bolus of fat deep into the breast tissue. Another small bolus is injected just above it and the whole process continues until the surface is reached. Then, in a grid-like pattern, more boluses are injected so that the shape of the breast is altered and enlarged with extra fat cells.
Eventually, the fat globules get circulation and begin to take hold in the breast and the swelling resolves. A fairly large portion of these patients need to be retreated because if the breast globule landed in an area of breast glandular tissue, there will be shrinkage and dimpling of that area. Another globule of fat needs to be replaced in the area in order to have smooth breasts that do not dimple and are of a larger size than before.
Fat Absorption in the Breast
There are some doctors that do not believe in this procedure because they believe the risk of fat necrosis is fairly high in the breast so the end result is not pretty and there is too much shrinkage of the breast after the procedure. Breast fat takes implanted fat much easier than does breast glandular tissue and it isn’t always easy to tell whether the fat is being injected into the breast gland or into the breast fat.
No Risk of Capsular Contracture or Implant Rupture
There are few risks to this procedure with the exception of the possibility of a poor outcome due to fat necrosis. There is also the risk of infection at the injection sites but this is rare.
Talk with your doctor about whether or not fat transfer to breast is the procedure for you. Fat transfer to breast may need more than one treatment as compared to breast implants that only require a single treatment in most cases. Fat transfer to breast can only be done in people who have enough fatty tissue from other body areas to share so very thin people are not good candidates.
