Breast augmentation cosmetic surgery is traditionally performed using silicone or saline implants. However, many women want to avoid the use of implants in their body and prefer to keep the procedure more natural. Such patients can benefit from fat transfer breast augmentation, which involves the use of patient’s own body fat.
Fat transfer breast augmentation is an advanced technique, and should only be performed by a skilled and experience surgeon. The surgeon will carefully determine the patient’s candidacy before recommending fat transfer surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Nasir provides fat transfer breast augmentation to patients in New Haven, Westport, Fairfield County, Fairfield, Bridgeport, CT, New York, and surrounding locations.
With advancements in fat harvesting techniques, it is now possible to transfer excess fat from the abdomen or thighs to the breast area. The results of this natural fat transfer can be similar to that of breast implant surgery to augment the breast size and shape. Dr. Nasir applies the cutting edge Puregraft technique to harvest, treat and transfer fat to the breast area.
With the safety and efficacy of Puregraft technique, Dr. Nasir believes that fat will soon be recognized as the universal ingredient to enhance and rejuvenate body contours. Puregraft technique involves harvesting, processing and delivering of fat to the targeted sites without any air exposure. This enables an increased survival of the transferred fat, allowing more specific volume transfer and artistic integrity.
Fat transfer cosmetic surgery technique offers an advantage over breast implants because of the small incisions involved as well as no dependence on synthetic implants. Capsular contracture, implant damage, implant shifting and rippling are common concerns with breast implants. The risk of implant failure is eliminated with fat transfer breast augmentation surgery.
Fat transfer can also be used as a part of breast reconstruction surgery to achieve the desired aesthetic results in a more natural way. Sometimes fat transfer breast augmentation may be used along with implants to improve contour defects which are not correctible with an implant alone, such as hollows, lack of proper shelfing, or cleavage. Breast symmetry may also be improved with fat transfer technique.
The ideal candidate for natural breast augmentation with fat transfer will be a woman who:
- Has no family history of breast cancer.
- Is prepared to undergo multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal outcomes.
- Has donor fat available in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, flanks, back, and arms.
- Wants subtle enhancement, and not dramatic change.
- Has realistic expectations.
Less Invasive Procedure
In case of Puregraft, the fat from the donor sites is removed with a low vacuum process. Atraumatic cannulae are used for procurement of fat. Handling of the fat is minimized and Puregraft technique automates the process for maximum fat survival. The fat is centrifuged at proper gravitational force to separate from blood but without causing injury to the cell walls.
The harvested fat is then delivered into the recipient areas of the breasts with minimal trauma. Salient and profound cosmetic surgeon Dr. Nasir receives patients from New Haven, Westport, Fairfield County, Fairfield, Bridgeport, CT, New York, and nearby areas for fat transfer breast augmentation.
