Natural Breast Enhancement in San Francisco (Micro-Fat Grafting)

This entry was posted in Blog, Body Procedures, Uncategorized on by .

I’m skeptical about using implants in my body, is there any way I can have the size of my breasts fuller and larger without using implants?

Breast augmentations have traditionally been performed using implants.  These are usually in the form of silicone or saline filled.  The procedure involves placing the implant either below the chest (pectoralis) muscles, or directly under the breast tissue.  Patients who have breast implants are usually amongst the most satisfied of all patients undergoing aesthetic plastic surgery.  However, there are potential problems using implants.  Since the implants are man-made they will rupture at some point, necessitating their removal.  Also, infections, capsular contractures, improper positioning, large scars, inappropriate patient selection, and even the possibility of association with cancer are all possible pitfalls, or problems associated with implants.  Not to mention that their replacement, and other associated procedures, are real possibilities in the lifetime of implants.

Micro-fat grafting for breast enhancement is a relatively new procedure.  It is a very technically oriented procedure as well as artistically challenging.  No longer does a plastic surgeon merely place an implant.  The breast must now be sculpted.  Also, in order for the fat to survive, certain precise technical procedures and philosophies must be adhered.  The main advantages are that there are no implants to worry about removal at some point.  Also, the entire breast can be enlarged, not only a certain portion of it.  The main disadvantages are that approximately 2/3, or more, of the fat stays (if done correctly), and the amounts that can be placed are limited by the size of the breasts and the availability of usable fat from the patient.

My orientation is mainly using micro-fat grafting because I believe that natural breast enhancement is superior to anything foreign; however, there are exceptions (noted above).  More information can be found: http://www.privatehealth.co.uk/articles/april-2013/fat-transfer-to-the-breasts/
