Breast augmentation is the most common form of cosmetic enhancement currently being performed in the world. Known more colloquially as a “boob job,” this procedure is used to enhance the size of a woman’s breasts and also improve their shape. A good breast augmentation procedure can make women look younger, more feminine, and restore their confidence in their bodies.

Why Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting?

Not all breast augmentation procedures are alike, and if you are considering this route, it’s important to understand your options. The biggest decision women will face will be between getting implants or using fat grafting for their augmentation.

Most breast augmentations involve implants made out of surgical-grade silicone or saline, but these have a multitude of drawbacks. Implants don’t look or feel natural, and at times, can also cause life-threatening complications if they are impacted. Many forms of implants may also require upkeep surgeries, or may also cause excess scarring dimpling to occur around the areas of incision.

Breast Augmentation using fat grafting, also known as fat transfer breast augmentation, offers far more benefits than traditional implant augmentations. Fat grafting removes body fat from your own body, and then adds it to your chest, giving you breasts that are made of natural material. Once the procedure is done, women will keep around 50% to 80% of all fat transferred to your breasts.

The benefits of breast augmentation with fat grafting include:

  • A more natural appearance
  • Reconstructive benefits
  • Less risk of complications due to it being a natural material being placed inside
  • Less scarring
  • Virtually no risk of dimpling
  • Downtime that lasts only 3 to 5 days
  • Permanent results!

 

When Is Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting A Good Option?

Any woman who wants to have breast augmentation should consider fat grafting as a viable method. This form of breast augmentation is often done as a reconstructive procedure for women who have undergone lumpectomies or similar health-related surgeries.

It’s worth pointing out that fat transfer breast augmentation is best for women who only want to increase their breast size by one cup. Those who want to get larger breasts will have to have multiple sessions in order to see the results.

An ideal candidate for this form of breast augmentation is a woman who:

  • Is in generally good health
  • Wants natural-looking breasts that are one cup larger
  • Is willing to undergo multiple sessions if they want breasts larger than one cup
  • Has reasonable expectations
