How Long Does Natural Breast Augmentation Last?

May 30, 2023


Countless women are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. However, many don’t want to undergo an invasive breast augmentation procedure or risk unnatural-looking results with breast implants. Natural breast augmentation may be the solution if you want a natural-looking breast volume enhancement. Because much of the breast volume results from the presence of fat tissue, adding additional fat is simply enhancing this natural feature.

What is Natural Breast Augmentation?

Natural breast augmentation is a breast enhancement procedure that uses fat transfer to increase breast size. Also called a fat transfer breast augmentation or breast lipo-augmentation, this less invasive procedure is a popular alternative to breast implants. Dr. Langdon offers natural breast augmentation for women who want an increase in breast volume and symmetry without the use of artificial implants or silicone. Your breasts will maintain their unique shape, only with increased volume.

How Does Natural Breast Augmentation Work?

A fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, involves taking excess (unwanted) fat from a donor area and placing it in the recipient area to increase volume. Dr. Langdon will use Body-Jet liposuction to remove unwanted fat, which is then purified and injected into the breasts. The donor area can be anywhere you have excess unwanted fat, such as the abdomen or thighs. Dr. Langdon carefully places the purified fat throughout the breasts for even distribution and an ideal shape.

How Long Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Last?

Just like augmentation with implants, fat transfer breast augmentation offers long-lasting results. Not all of the transferred fat will survive, but the fat that remains after swelling from the procedure disappears will be permanent. Many women enjoy lifelong results with natural breast augmentation.

Keep in mind that the transferred fat will act just like your regular fat, meaning it will be affected by weight fluctuations. Losing or gaining weight may result in some fluctuation in breast volume. Leading a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a steady weight after fat transfer breast augmentation can help ensure lasting results.

What is Recovery Like After Natural Breast Augmentation?

One advantage of natural breast augmentation over implants is a shorter, easier recovery. Patients typically only need a few days off work. You’ll have some swelling and minor bruising in your breasts and at the donor site, most of which will subside within a couple of weeks. Dr. Langdon will advise you on pain management, keeping pressure off your breasts during recovery, and how soon you can resume exercise.

Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

Most women who want to increase their breast size are good candidates for natural breast augmentation. Candidates should be at or near their ideal weight with enough excess fat to transfer and maintain a steady weight after the procedure. If you want more dramatic results, you may benefit more from breast implants. You should be healthy overall and have realistic expectations for the procedure.
