Have you hesitated to get breast augmentation surgery because you have concerns about implants? Natural breast augmentation gives you fuller breasts without implants by using your own body fat. With this form of breast augmentation, you achieve beautiful, fuller breasts that look and feel natural and proportionate.
What is Natural Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Traditional breast augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to enhance breast volume. Natural breast augmentation surgery is a technique that uses your own fat instead of implants. It is also known as fat-transfer breast augmentation. Dr. Langdon removes fat from elsewhere on your body using liposuction, then transfers it to your breasts for long-lasting results.
How is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Performed?
Dr. Langdon will begin your fat transfer breast augmentation by removing fat from targeted areas of your body using liposuction. The procedure is performed using advanced body-jet liposuction that gently harvests fat. This form of liposuction allows Dr. Langdon to harvest healthy fat cells and vital stem cells. Fat removal will target areas of the body that can benefit from reduction tohelp achieve a more proportionate body shape that highlights your newly augmented breasts. These “harvested” fat cells will engraft and settle into their new location when carefully injected into the breasts, adding long-lasting volume.
How to Sleep After Breast Augmentation Surgery
Because natural or fat transfer breast augmentation uses minimally invasive technology, you can expect to recover much more quickly than you would from traditional breast augmentation with implants. After your procedure, you should try to sleep on your back for the first two weeks while your fat cells establish themselves. You will not have large incisions to care for, and any minor swelling mostly fades within 3-4 weeks. Not all fat cells transferred into the new area survive, but with Dr. Langdon’s careful harvesting techniques, you can expect most of these cells to thrive.
What are the Advantages of Natural Breast Augmentation?
Women choose natural breast augmentation surgery for many reasons. Some want to avoid implants, while others are drawn to the idea of a natural, proportionate appearance. Benefits of natural breast augmentation include:
A traditional breast augmentation is an invasive surgical procedure. Natural breast augmentation only uses a few tiny incisions for both liposuction and fat placement.
Without implants, you will never have to wonder about the effects of artificial materials inside your body. Risks of reaction to your own fat are almost nonexistent.
While implants can give an unnatural shape and size, fat transfer breast augmentation results in a look and feel just like natural breasts but fuller.
Am I a Good Candidate for Natural Breast Augmentation?
Most people make good candidates for natural breast augmentation. Ideal candidates have enough fat to harvest from “donor” areas and have reasonable expectations. The fat transfer may not achieve the same volume increase as implants, so those seeking a significant volume boost or reshaping may prefer a traditional augmentation with implants.
I had 3 treatments with the PicoSure laser to remove 2 black ink tattoos. The tattoos are 20 years old and located on my ankle and lower back. I previously had 12 treatments with a qswitch laser at Cornell and almost gave up as the results were poor in my case. The PicoSure laser at Dr. Langdon’s office was the exact opposite experience. There is much less pain and discomfort with a much quicker recovery time than my Cornell qswitch experience. I hardly noticed any pain after the procedure and even the next day there was no need to address a wound like I did with the Cornell qswitch treatments. The results are unbelievable and the tattoos are now greatly diminished. I anticipate 2 more treatments to completely remove the visible elements of the ink. I also feel the treatment price is fair due to the high cost of this cutting edge laser. It has been a wonderful experience and I would recommend the Langdon center to anyone removing an unwanted tattoo. I was getting very discouraged in the past and the PicoSure laser treatments gave me faith that I will finally be able to remove my tattoos.
