Natural breast augmentation, also known as fat-transfer breast augmentation, uses liposuction to remove fat from other parts of the body and precise injections to transfer it into the breasts. At Quintessence Plastic Surgery, we offer natural breast augmentation in Austin.
Some women do not want to have synthetic implants in their breasts or are afraid of going under the knife. Others are looking for smaller increases in breast size relative to the larger ones afforded by standard breast enlargement, since this offers more natural-looking results. All of these women can benefit from natural breast augmentation.
What Is Natural Breast Augmentation?
Minimally invasive and requiring very little downtime, fat-grafting breast augmentation is a way to enlarge the breasts without using breast implants.
The material that is implanted during this form of natural breast enhancement is your own body fat and not a synthetic material like silicone. The potential for risks and complications from this process is lowered significantly due to this. You have a much lower chance of developing an infection or allergic reaction, and it eliminates any chance of implant rupture.
Benefits of Fat-Transfer Breast Augmentation
The fat-transfer process increases the breast size by one cup size. Typically, stubborn excess fat is removed from the thighs or abdominal area and then implanted into the breasts. If you are looking for slimmer thighs or less fat in the tummy area, the natural breast augmentation procedure kills two birds with one stone.
If you compare this breast enlargement process to regular breast augmentation, you will note that this technique leaves no post-surgical incision marks. Because the fat is injected into your breasts, no breast incisions are needed.
This procedure is an ideal way to achieve a mini breast augmentation with no implants required. Mini breast augmentation is a technique that is growing in popularity. During this option, less volume is created than with traditional breast augmentation. It is an excellent choice for patients who are looking for less dramatic results.
Your Initial Consultation
Before a date can be set for your natural breast augmentation, you will need to come in for a consultation. During this consultation, Dr. White will explain the process to you, including preparation and recovery. She will also go over your complete medical history to ensure that the procedure is right for you.
The Natural Breast Augmentation Process
At the start of the procedure, anesthesia is administered. Fat cells are then removed from your thighs, abdomen, or other chosen trouble area using gentle liposuction.
The fat cells are processed in a centrifuge to remove unnecessary materials, including dead and damaged fat cells. During this process, fat cells are cleaned and are separated from blood and plasma.
When the fat is prepped and ready, it is injected into your breasts to create new volume. Usually, 20 to 40% of these fat cells are reabsorbed by your body. Dr. White accounts for this in order to ensure that your aesthetic goals are still achieved.
Healing and Recovery
Because the natural breast augmentation procedure is less invasive than regular surgery, the time needed to heal from it will be minimal. Recovery after this procedure is easy and tolerable. You may have slight swelling and bruising after the surgery, but these will recede soon. You can return to work in a matter of 2 to 3 days.
There will also be swelling in the areas from which fat was taken. You may be asked to wear a compression bandage over these areas to reduce the swelling. Rigorous physical activity should be restricted while you heal, but daily activities can continue as normal. The maximum time for recovery will be about a week or so.
