Breast augmentation with fat transfer is something to investigate if you desire to increase your breast size. George Solomon, M.D. has been providing this procedure to women in the Tampa Bay Area for over 15 years and has performed the procedure for hundreds of women. As a natural alternative to implants, the results are amazing!
This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.
The procedure essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject into your breasts to increase breast size. Liposuction is used to carefully harvest fat cells from a donor site, generally the tummy, thighs or buttocks. The fat is processed to remove non-fat fluids and then gently injected into your breasts. This procedure has a double benefit; it naturally increases the size of your breasts and also contours the “problem areas” that may not respond to diet or exercise.
Advantages of the Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
- Breast augmentation with fat transfer creates a fuller, natural breast using the body’s own fat cells. There is virtually no scarring and little trauma to the breast tissue.
- This procedure has a quicker recovery than surgical implants. Because it uses the body’s own fat cells, there is no risk of leaks. The look and feel of the breast is natural.
- An additional benefit of breast augmentation with fat transfer is that it sculpts the donor areas of the body. Liposuction will permanently reduce fat cells in the tummy, buttocks, or thighs.
