Natural Breast Augmentation (Fat Transfer) in San Francisco
Natural Breast Augmentation is gaining popularity because of the greater understanding of fat grafting.
The procedure involves removing fat from areas of the body and placing it into the breast for a fuller result. The fat is placed using micro-fat grafting techniques. The fat, if grafted properly, will result in natural looking enlargement of the breast without the use of implants.
There are many advantages of this technique. One obvious one is that no foreign body is placed into the human body. Though the chances of infection, or “rejection”, of an implant are very rare, an implant is a foreign body. Using one’s own fat eliminates this possible complication. Another advantage is that since the breast has different shapes for each individual, an implant can not always adjust itself to that particular shape. Using micro-fat grafting techniques can also result in a superior result by grafting to enhance only the area of the breast that is required.
Using fat grafting for breast augmentation specially, has the added benefit of removing unwanted fat via liposuction while simultaneously achieving breast enhancement. Also, there are certain congenital breast deformities, such as tubular breast deformity, that is very difficult to improve with breast implants without performing other procedures. Fat grafting can eliminate the need for these additional procedures.
Though, not everyone is a candidate, one needs to have enough fat to be able to graft. Certain percentage of fat can be absorbed by your body during the recovery period , one way around this is to store the fat and inject again 2-3 months later.
Micro-fat grafting is not a simple procedure, and a board certified plastic surgeon (by the American Board of Plastic Surgery) is where one would begin the process. It is a procedure that demands technical skill and judgment and, of course, artistry. Dr. Javaheri has enjoyed great success in fat grafting and has been performing micro-fat grafting to various parts of the body for many years.
