Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Fat Grafting and Breast Enhancement

breast-aug-plastic-surgery-cosmetic-surgeon-200x300 Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer | Northern VirginiaIn recent years, fat transfer breast augmentation technique has emerged as a viable alternative to traditional breast implants for many women.
The surgeon will first perform liposuction to extract the purest quality of fat tissue from areas with surplus fat, and use it for successful re-injection into the breasts. Fat grafting technique can create more sustainable and natural looking results in terms of breast enhancement.
Three key states are involved in this procedure, which include fat extraction, fat processing and fat re-injection. Results are more subtle and the risk of implant failure is avoided in this technique.
Board certified and dependable plastic surgeons at MBody, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provide fat transfer breast augmentation to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

Fat Extraction

The most common surgical technique used to remove the fat tissue from donor sites is tumescent liposuction. This procedure can be performed in a less invasive way, using only local anesthesia. The surgeon will insert a thin cannula through small incisions into the targeted deep tissue to dislodge stubborn fat cells and suction them out with a pump or syringe attached to the outer end of the cannula.
The smallest fat particles can be extracted with a thin cannula, which are ideal for use in fat grafting. Abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and back are common donor sites. An incidental benefit of this technique can be improvement of body contours due to proportionate redistribution of fat tissue.

Fat Processing

Once the surgeon has collected the fat through liposuction, it is process and purified using decanting and centrifugation techniques. Only the most viable portion of the collected fat will be used for re-injection into the breasts. A golden and salient surgeon will be able to utilize about one-fourth of the extracted fat for transfer to the breasts.
More homogenous outcomes are created when only the highest quality donor fat is re-injected into the breasts for augmentation. Multiple donor sites are often used to extract adequate amount of qualified fat through liposuction.

Fat Re-injection

The surgeon will employ tiny injections with special cannulas to transfer the separated fat to the targeted areas of the breasts. Fat in small amounts will be transferred to multiple sites within the breasts at varying depths. This will help to optimize the permanent absorption rate. The surgeon must use the correct injection technique to create even and natural looking results.
The amount of donor fat available for re-injection in each breast will determine how much size increase is possible in the breasts. If the patient wants a significantly large breast size, she may choose implants technique. But a moderate breast size enhancement is usually possible with fat transfer breast augmentation.
A skillful and committed surgeon’s goal will be to create symmetrical and proportionate breasts that are in harmony with the rest of the body. Mbody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other cities and communities in this part of the Atlantic coast for fat transfer breast augmentation.

NovaThreads EZ Neck Lift

NovaThreads EZ Neck Lift as Seen on The Doctors TV Show

Loose skin in the neck area can create an unsightly appearance because the neck is one of the more visible parts of the body. While neck lift plastic surgery can reverse this condition, many people want to avoid an elective surgical procedure even when they are unhappy about their sagging skin in the neck. NovaThreads EZ neck lift is a promising non-surgical solution for all such people.
NovaThreads treatment is designed to address the aging skin in the lower third of the face, but it achieves the best outcomes when used to lift the neck.
The procedure involves a single in-office treatment, and the patient will not go through any significant discomfort or downtime. It is also popularly known as ‘lunchtime’ neck lift because working people can simply get the procedure done during their lunch hour from work, and go back to their workplace immediately thereafter.
Board certified, golden, and wise plastic surgeons at MBody provides NovaThreads EZ neck lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

PDO Sutures

The material used in NovaThreads is PDO, which is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture made of polydioxanone. This medical grade material has been used by surgeons and other medical professionals for decades and it is particularly used in performing advanced procedures such as open heart surgery. NovaThreads include hypothermic needles that are preloaded with PDO sutures.
The treatment provider will assure the patient about the safety aspects of PDO sutures at the time of initial consultation. PDO sutures are recognized in the medical industry as one of the safest materials implanted in the human body. It takes about four to six months for the body to fully absorb the suture. Unlike plastic surgery, this procedure does not lead to scar tissue formation.

Advantages

A lunchtime lift with NovaThreads offers the following advantages to a patient:

  • It is an instant neck lift, providing a subtle lift and tightening in the neck skin immediately.

How to Reduce a Double Chin?

The appearance of double chin can occur when excessive fat tissue deposits accumulate in the submental region.
Stubborn fats in this area are not easy to eliminate through diet or exercise, which leaves patients with the option of liposuction plastic surgery. But if the patient wants to avoid surgery, they may consider CoolMini body contouring treatment, which is an applicator designed specifically to reduce double chin.
Coolsculpting-for-chin-fat-reduction-before-after-pictures-300x134 How to Reduce a Double Chin? | Northern VirginiaCoolMini is a part of the CoolSculpting procedure, which ranks among the most popular non-surgical body contouring treatments. CoolMini device has been created to exclusively focus on difficult to reach areas such as below the chin. The FDA has cleared this device for fat reduction in the submental area.
MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides CoolMini by CoolSculpting treatment to eliminate double chin effect for patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations across the landscape.

Uniquely Designed for Submental Area

Coolsculpting-for-chin-fat-reduction-before-after-photos-300x134 How to Reduce a Double Chin? | Northern VirginiaConventional non-invasive treatments as well as CoolSculpting may not be very successful in addressing the fat pockets in the hard to access submental area underneath the chin. To overcome this problem, Zeltiq, the company that owns CoolSculpting technology, introduced the CoolMini applicator. CoolMini has a size, shape and curvature that is specifically designed to treat smaller fat pockets below the chin.
CoolMini procedure is completely non-invasive, involving no cuts, incisions, needles, medications or anesthesia. With this cutting edge device, the same level of success in double chin reduction can be achieved as with CoolSculpting in other areas. Unlike plastic surgery procedures, CoolMini treatment can be performed with little to no discomfort and downtime.

How does CoolMini Work?

CoolMini treatment is based on the same innovative cooling process that has made CoolSculpting one of the most sought-after fat reduction and body contouring procedures today. This unique cooling process was developed by Harvard scientists, who found that fat cells can be isolated because they respond first to cold temperatures.
CoolMini device selectively targets the unwanted fat cells below the chin, while leaving the healthy tissue unaffected. The fat cells quickly respond to the cold temperature delivered through the applicator, and begin to freeze off. The frozen fat cells eventually get disintegrated and the undesirable fat exits the body through its natural metabolic process.
The patient is able to achieve a slimmer, sculpted and more youthful looking chin and neck. The effect of double chin is no longer there. Another good thing about CoolSculpting and CoolMini techniques is that they will permanently eliminate the fat. The fat cells that are killed through the cooling process will not return in the future at the same site.

Comfortable, In-Office Procedure

A single treatment with CoolMini to improve the chin contours may last for about 45 minutes. The procedure is performed at the provider’s office. The patient can listen to music or rest comfortably while the treatment is performed. Shining results are usually achieved after two to three treatment sessions that are spaced one month apart.
Successful, practiced, and sparkling plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other cities and suburbs across the horizon for CoolMini and various other procedures.

CoolSculpting vs. Kybella to Treat Double Chin

BA-Burns-SM-pt012F-2set-18wk2_LEFT-LOW-RES-300x134 CoolSculpting vs. Kybella to Treat Double Chin | Northern VirginiaUnwanted fat accumulation under the chin is a common cosmetic problem for both men and women. Although liposuction plastic surgery is a time-tested procedure to eliminate stubborn fat pockets, but many people want to avoid an elective surgery. For all such people, CoolSculpting and Kybella are two innovative non-surgical solutions to get rid of double chin.
Both treatments adopt a completely diverse approach, but with the same goal of creating a sculpted, slimmer chin appearance. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provides these procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities and cities in this part of the state.
 

How do these procedures work?

 
CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is based on a unique process called cryolipolysis, which involves freezing of the targeted fat cells using cold temperatures. CoolMini by CoolSculpting is an innovative fat freezing applicator that is specially designed to address hard to reach areas such as below the chin. The FDA has cleared CoolMini to be used for fat reduction in the submental region.
Fat cells in the chin will respond first to the cold exposure delivered through CoolMini device. As these cells get isolated and frozen, they will gradually disintegrate and get eliminated from the chin through the natural metabolic process. The patient can achieve a slimmer, more youthful chin appearance without involving plastic surgery.
 
Kybella
Kybella is also an FDA approved treatment to eliminate excess fat tissue below the chin and help the patient get rid of the double chin effect. Kybella involves a series of injections that are used to deliver the medication directly into the affected area below the chin. Multiple injections may be provided over a span for a few days or weeks to achieve desirable and sustainable results with Kybella.
The deoxycholic acid in Kybella is designed to break down fat cells, and reveal an attractive chin contour. Experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for double chin treatment.
 

Side Effects

CoolMini by CoolSculpting is considered to be one of the safest fat reduction procedures, which does not involve any cuts or incisions. Mild redness or temporary numbness under the chin where the applicator was focused may occur in a few cases. But it will dissipate on its own.
Kybella involves multiple injections, and temporary redness and numbness may occur after the treatment. However, most patients report that these symptoms get resolved on their own in a few days to a few weeks.
 

Treatment of Choice

Both CoolSculpting and Kybella injections are non-surgical fat reduction procedures to mitigate double chin. Both treatments do not involve any significant downtime and are ideal for working people, busy moms and others who want to avoid surgery. Patients can choose a treatment which appeals to them, as long as their candidacy is approved, or follow the treatment provider’s recommendation. In exceptional cases, both treatments may be combined for more effective outcomes.
