Are you looking for natural looking breast augmentation without implants? If you are, you should take the time to learn about a process known as autologous fat transfer (fat grafting). The technique is now being used to perform several cosmetic enhancement procedures, including breast augmentation.
What is natural breast augmentation (with fat grafting)?
Breast augmentation using autologous fat transfer is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that is done to increase breast volume. The fat is used to fill in the upper pole of the breasts where there is loose skin and tissue. The technique is less stressful on the body when compared to traditional artificial implants, and requires a shorter recovery time.
How is the procedure done
The fat is first harvested (via liposuction) from a part of the body where there is a surplus amount, such as the thighs, back, or flanks. It is then purified, before being injected into the breasts to add volume.
Fat transfer is very effective in filling out the upper pole of the breast, which is the area that tends to droop due to breast feeding or weight loss.
Breast augmentation with fat grating takes about 3 hours to complete.
Best candidates for natural breast augmentation
The procedure is suited to women who would like a moderate breast enhancement that looks natural. They should also have sufficient fat to use for the procedure.
Benefits of natural breast augmentation
Since breast augmentation with autologous fat transfer is a natural procedure, there is no risk of rupture or capsular contracture (hardening of the breast due to scar tissue). In addition, the incisions are very small.
