A plastic surgery technique that is fast gaining popularity, fat grafting for breast augmentation involves the use of the patient’s own fat to enhance breasts that lack volume. Women who seek this treatment are those who want to improve the shape and contour of the breasts or those who want to set right problems caused by implants or breast reconstruction-related shortcomings. Fat grafts are a great alternative to breast implants. The success of the minimally invasive procedures depends to a large extent on the plastic surgeon.
Laser Liposuction for Effective Fat Removal
The first step in the treatment is the removal of fat from the patient’s body fof the graft. Typical donor sites include the thighs, flanks and stomach. The use of advanced laser liposuction surgery technology such as Smartlipo Triplex would ensure effective results for fat disruption and removal. This workstation from Cynosure features a minimally invasive triple laser-enabled cannula which is inserted under the skin at the donor site with excessive fat. The laser energy gently melts the fat which is then suctioned off.
The next stage in the fat grafting for breast augmentation procedure involves the processing of the extracted fat tissue. Impurities are removed. Stem cells are separated from the fat tissue and then mixed back with the graft to improve healing capacity. The fat is then injected into the breasts at the appropriate places to improve volume and shape.
This unique treatment offers the patient a double advantage – the donor site loses excess fat and gains better contour. The fat graft ensures attractive, well-shaped breasts.
The Right Plastic Surgeon for Effective Breast Augmentation with Lipo Transfer
Fat grafting for breast enhancements ensure many benefits when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon:
• Gentle fat grafting causes minimal damage to the fat cells, reducing risks such as infection, loss of sensation, asymmetry, lumpiness and bruising
• Breasts that look and feel natural
• No surgical incisions with minimally invasive methods
• No issues of rejection as the patient’s own fat is used
• Smartlipo liposuction reduces the chances of bleeding, bruising and discomfort
• Reduced treatment time with local anesthesia
• Quick recovery
Fat grafting for breast augmentation can work for slim women too. When you locate an established plastic surgery center that offers the treatment, make sure that the plastic surgeons are board-certified and experienced in the procedure. It’s important that you are thoroughly examined to determine whether you are a good candidate. Be informed about this relatively new treatment and have realistic expectations about the results.
