What Is Implant-Free Augmentation?

Implant-free breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that aims to increase the size and enhance the shape or projection of the breasts without the use of breast implants. This approach typically involves the transfer of fat from other areas of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, to the breasts. The procedure begins with a liposuction process, where Dr. Rogers removes unwanted fat from a donor area on your body. The fat is then purified and processed, allowing Dr. Rogers to carefully inject it into the breast tissue, layer by layer, creating your ideal shape and size. Since this procedure foregoes the use of artificial implants, you’ll enjoy a completely safe and natural outcome, with subtle improvements to your bust that will be made with your body’s own healthy tissues.

Do I Qualify for Implant-Free Augmentation?

Implant-free augmentation is a procedure that may not be suitable for everyone. It depends on several factors, such as the individual’s overall health, expectations, and body type. The ideal candidates for this procedure will be in good health, have realistic expectations about the results, and want a modest increase in breast size. If you’re looking for a more pronounced result, Dr. Rogers may help you explore the outcomes that are made possible with implant-based augmentation.

The main consideration for implant-free augmentation will involve available fatty tissue in a donor area elsewhere on your body. While this can sometimes rule out patients who do not have sufficient donor fat, those who do will enjoy a “two in one” outcome, as the donor site will be notably slimmed down thanks to the liposuction aspect of the procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Rogers will explain the procedure in detail, answering any questions you might have and helping you feel secure in your choice.

The Implant-Free Augmentation Procedure

Breast Implant-Free Augmentation is typically performed under general anesthesia, so you’ll be in a deep sleep and won’t feel anything throughout the surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Rogers will provide you with an accurate estimate of the procedure's length based on your individual surgical plan. No two patients are ever the same, so no two surgeries are ever performed in quite the same way…but most fat transfer breast augmentation procedures take between three and six hours to complete.

Step One: Harvesting

A liposuction procedure is done to remove fat from unwanted areas of the body (i.e. the butt, thighs, or stomach areas). Next, the fat stem cells are extracted from the fat and centrifuged for refinement. This can range anywhere between fifteen minutes to a few hours, depending on the amount of fat needed for transfer. Purifying the fat then removes impurities, increasing the likelihood of a successful cell transfer. After this transformation, the fat cells are ready to be re-injected into the breasts.

Step Two: Injection

The fat is injected into the layers of the breast by way of six to eight incisions in each breast that are roughly two millimeters in size (slightly larger than a pen mark). The fat is injected into the space between the skin and the breast capsule and/or into the space between the breast and chest wall. The injections are layered from the pectoralis major muscle up through the top of the breast. Blunt syringes and cannulas (small tubes that can be inserted into the body) are used to administer the fat into the breasts.
