Posted Jan 01 2013 4:20am
Women now have a very effective option to augment breast size - fat grafting. Fat transfer or grafting offers a more natural outcome for breast enlargement compared to implants. In this procedure, fat is removed from certain areas of the body and injected into the breasts to improve volume and contour. The procedure is also known as stem cell augmentation. Breast augmentation with fat grafting can increase breast size, improve breast shape, and reduce drooping or sagginess.
Fat Grafting Procedure
The surgeon first examines you to see if you are the right candidate for the procedure. Fat transfer for breast enhancement is ideal for women with excess fat in the donor areas such as the thighs and abdomen. Fat transfer includes two procedures
Harvesting fat: Using liposuction, fat cells are removed from the donor site. A part of collected fat cells is then processed and the stem cells are extracted.
Injecting fat into the breasts: Stem cells mixed with the remaining fat tissue are injected into your breasts to achieve the desired breast size and shape. The stem cells help in the growth of new blood vessels which are necessary to repair the breast tissue.
Reliable plastic surgery practices provide advanced modalities such as SmartLipo Triplex, BodyTite and Vaser2.0 for safe liposuction process. They utilize latest fat grafting technology TouchView system for image-guided fat grafting. This helps the surgeon to measure the extent of fat deposited and to identify the exact place for fat placement. Fat cell preservation is also possible. The regenerative cells collected during liposuction can also be preserved in recognized cell banks for future use.
Benefits of Fat Transfer for Breast Enhancement
