Breast augmentation has always been a very popular cosmetic procedure. This procedure is sought after by many women looking for an enhanced look to their breasts. The most common enlargement or enhancement technique is the insertion of implants. This implant technique carried with it several risks, including rejection or even rupture. Also, these implants often produced results that were less than satisfactory.
While breast implants still are the most common way to enlarge breasts. Today, we have a new natural & safe breast enhancement procedure using the fat transfer technique which will produce more natural looking results and carries fewer risks and complications.
The Natural Breast Enhancement Procedure
At St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center, we are experts in the new, more natural & safe breast enhancement procedure. During this procedure, your own body’s fat is used to enhance your breasts.
Fat is harvested through a liposuction procedure from areas of the body that have excess fat deposits. These areas can include the abdomen, hips, thighs and other such areas. Because fat is being removed from these areas, you receive the added benefit of a contouring procedure in addition to your natural breast augmentation.
The harvested fat is then treated and purified through a centrifuge to separate the fat deposits from impurities. During this process, platelet rich plasma (PRP) which is also taken from the patient is combined with the fat cells. PRP will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to speed up healing, along with producing natural looking results.
Finally, the enhanced fat cells are then injected into the breasts to augmentation their size and shape. Because an artificial implant is not used, the results will look and feel far more natural.
Risks and Safety of Natural Breast Augmentation
Overall, natural breast enhancement is considered a safe and effective procedure. Since your own fat is used for the procedure, you have fewer risk factors than traditional implant surgery. You are not at risk for an allergic reaction or rejection issues, and of course, the results are far more realistic and natural than with artificial implants.
As with any medical or surgical procedure there are some possible complications or side effects. These can include:
- Small risk of infection
- Complications due to liposuction
- Risk of fat embolism due to re-injection of fat [rare]
The possible risks and other details will be fully explained and discussed during your consultation. Please call us today to discuss the natural breast augmentation and how we can help you achieve the results you want!
