In recent years, breast augmentation with fat grafting has emerged as an increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure. The procedure does not involve the use of implants and is less invasive than traditional implant surgery. On top of this, it involves reduced downtime and creates more natural-looking outcomes.
The breasts can be contoured better with fat grafting and the surgeon can slim the curves in areas where the patient does not want them and create curves where she does.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides fat grafting breast enhancement to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
Suitable candidates for breast augmentation with fat grating are women seeking to enhance their breast size by one, or possibly two cup sizes. The candidate should have excess fat tissue in donor areas to allow its transfer to the breasts.
However, patients should understand that not every woman is an appropriate candidate for this procedure. In case a woman wants to enhance her breast size substantially, she should consider breast implants.
The success rate of breast enhancement with fat transfer plastic surgery is high as it involves the use of patient’s body’s own excess fat cells for the breasts. The surgeon will use a gentle liposuction technique to eliminate excess fat tissue from targeted donor areas, typically buttocks, abdomen, or thighs.
In this procedure, the surgeon begins by injecting tumescent fluid in the treatment site. The fluid is a combination of local anesthetic and adrenaline. It numbs the treatment areas as well as helps control the bleeding. After this, the surgeon will suction the fat out using a cannula.
Autologous Fat Transfer
The harvested fat is then purified and implanted into the natural breast tissue to develop fuller and more proportionate breasts.
The surgeon only places tiny incisions that heal with little to no scarring in this procedure. Advanced techniques are employed in this procedure to ensure the effective harvesting of maximum fatty tissue to develop the desired degree of breast grafting.
How does it Work?
Breast enhancement with fat grafting can create fuller, voluptuous breasts in a less invasive manner. The procedure is undertaken in two stages. In the initial stage, the surgeon delicately removes excess fat cells from the donor sites, using the traditional liposuction technique.
Subsequently, the fat cells are purified and then injected into the natural breast tissue in a targeted manner to enhance the fullness and volume. This procedure can develop curves at the exact places where the patient wants them. This helps create breasts that are not only fuller, but also more appealing in shape.
In case the woman has small, firm breast tissue, an addition stage known as breast tissue expansion, may be included in the enhancement procedure. The surgeon may recommend an innovative system, which will allow the breast tissue to expand enough to create space for donor fat cells.
The tissue expansion technique can also enhance blood flow to the breast region, which reduces the risk of cell necrosis and enhances the rate of grafted cell survival.
The amount of donor fat available for re-injection into each breast will determine the increase in the breast size. The objective of the surgeon should be to develop proportionate and symmetrical breasts, not merely increase their size.
