Posted Apr 01 2013 5:34am
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a unique procedure you can undergo if your breasts lack the size and volume that you desire. This is a reliable and natural way of giving the breasts the desired look. The best thing about breast augmentation with fat transfer is that your own body fat is used for the process and there is no involvement of foreign materials. Thus, the body accepts the fat well and there are no chances of rejection. You can therefore obtain excellent results from this procedure. The procedure should be obtained from a reliable and experienced plastic surgeon at a reputable plastic surgery facility.
The Procedure of Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
The right candidate for this procedure is a woman who:
Is mentally healthy and physically fit
Is desirous of augmenting the breast
Has areas of excessive fat buildup
Has practical expectations and aesthetic goals.
Fat would be extracted by the plastic surgeon through safe laser liposuction from various areas such as the thighs, abdomen, back, buttocks, love handles and upper arms at a very low vacuum pressure. Low pressure would be used so that the fat cell viability is kept intact. Then after the fat is harvested, it is processed and purified. The purified fat is injected into the breasts to increase their volume naturally.
Short Duration Procedure
This procedure is an outpatient one and doesn’t take more than a couple of hours for completion. If only a small quantity of fat has to be removed, then local anesthesia is enough. However, if a large quantity of fat has to be removed, sedation may be used in addition to local anesthesia. There is minimal risk and surgical trauma involved in this procedure. If you are considering fat transfer breast augmentation, finding the right plastic surgeon is of prime importance. In fat transplantation, both grafting as well as liposuction is involved. If there is any kind of mistake, asymmetry and inconsistencies can be caused. Thus, while choosing a plastic surgeon, keep a note of the following things:
Your plastic surgeon should be specialized in providing this cosmetic surgery
Compare various surgeons before deciding on a particular surgeon
Ideally, the plastic surgery center should be an accredited one
Check out before and after photographs of patients who have undergone the surgery
Discuss all your concerns with your plastic surgeon
Go for a surgeon who provides follow-up consultations also.
