Breast augmentation is still one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures to date; in fact, it’s estimated that breast augmentation has been the #1 most requested surgical procedure for the past decade. It’s no wonder – many women are pleased with the results of their breast augmentation procedure, citing that it makes them feel more confident and comfortable in their clothing.
Breast augmentation typically uses either silicone or saline implants to help add volume. However, new surgical procedures have made it possible for clients to undergo breast augmentation without needing implants.
Curious? Let’s take a look at how it works:
Implant-free breast augmentation is an innovative surgical procedure that uses your body’s own fat to augment the breasts. Implant-free breast augmentation is performed with two specific steps:
- Liposuction is performed to harvest fat for the breast augmentation procedure; this fat is typically harvested from the abdomen, back, or thighs, but it can be taken from nearly any place on your body. The fat is then prepared for the next step which is injection into the breasts.
- The fat cells are then carefully and artistically injected into the breasts. This is done by placing it over multiple depth and layers along the chest and breast. Doing so allows your plastic surgeon to create the most natural shape possible. The entire procedure takes about four to six hours to perform, and has fewer risks for side effects or rejections than with traditional breast augmentation.
The end result are breasts that look and feel natural, all without the use of silicone or saline implants. Bonus benefits include more streamlined thighs or abdomen, depending on where the fat tissue is harvested from. Keep in mind that results from your implant-free breast augmentation procedure will fluctuate if you gain or lose weight. This procedure is recommended for patients who only want to increase their breasts by one or two cup sizes, but it can be potentially repeated.
Dr. Rogers and Dr. Nima Naghshineh are plastic surgeons who specializes in implant-free breast augmentation, thus helping patients enhance their breasts without requiring the use of silicone or saline implants.
