Have you lost breast volume and want a fuller more satisfying breast back, yet do not want breast implants? Then naturally enlarge and shape your breasts with your own fat taken from places where you have an excess. This type of natural breast augmentation is a specialty of Genesis Plastic Surgery in Kansas City.
The Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation Procedure
The initial stage in natural breast augmentation involves a modified liposuction to harvest fat grom areas of excess, such as the hips and abdomen. The collected fat tissue is then purified with a PureGraft ® filtering system before being placed in the chest area. Using a thin tube through a 3mm incision, the fat is carefully positioned around, under, and over the existing breast tissue. The fat is known to contain high concentrations of stem cells, similar to those that are in regenerative medicine.
It takes about 7 days for the transferred fat to "take," meaning the connection of capillaries to the fat tissue. Grafted fat does have a variable survival depending on the woman's hormone levels, smoking, and post-operative activities. The first week after the procedure requires moderation of activities to ensure the best result. Usually 70-80% of the transferred fat survives and will last a lifetime, but does increase with weight gain or decrease with dieting just like any other fat tissue in the body.
Besides the tiny incisions needed to transfer fat, other advantages over breast implants include less incidence of sensory loss, ability to put the volume where you need it most in the breast, and the dual benefit of reducing an area of excess while enhancing the breast volume and shape.
