How Long Does Breast Augmentation Take?
Fat transfer breast augmentation begins with the removal of fat using Body-Jet liposuction. This technique removes the fat using a solution of sterile saline and local anesthetic. The harvested fat cells go through a careful preparation process before injection into the breasts. This process maintains adipose-derived stem cells, regenerative cells contained in fatty tissues. These stem cells help your transplanted fat settle into its new location. The entire procedure usually takes three to five hours. This includes liposuction, fat preparation, and injection steps.
What are the Advantages of Natural Breast Augmentation?
Women choose natural breast augmentation for many reasons. This type of breast augmentation has several advantages over augmentation with implants.
Natural breast augmentation does not require any surgical incisions in the breast area. You will have a few tiny incisions in the place where you have liposuction and around the breasts, but these generally heal without noticeable scars. Augmentation with implants typically requires a large incision under the breast or around the areola.
Breast implants eventually need to be removed and replaced. Fat transferred to your breasts never needs replacement and will last a lifetime. Your results look soft, full, and natural and will stay that way indefinitely. The size of your breasts may change if you lose or gain weight.
Because natural breast augmentation uses no implants, you do not expose yourself to the potential complications they can cause. Your body accepts the transplanted fat and will not react to it as it might react to an artificial object.
Improved Body Contours
Natural breast augmentation also includes liposuction of a body area where fat is less desirable, such as the hips or flanks. The fat donor areas also will improve because of liposuction of these areas.
