For the past several years, breast implants have been the most reliable way to get bigger breast size. Many women who want to improve the appearance of their breasts don’t opt for breast implant surgery because they don’t like the fake look, or have heard that the breasts take on a somewhat plastic feel. Fortunately natural breast augmentation procedures have gained more popularity, as an effective alternative to implants. Natural breast augmentation surgery will eliminate the need for breast implants by using the fat from one part of the body and transferring it to the breasts, in order to increase breast size.
Natural Breast Augmentation Procedure and Risks
The fat transfer process works by redistributing fat from the legs, buttocks, belly or thighs, to the breasts. Seems pretty simple right? But what type of results can you expect and does this process of breast enlargement take for everyone?
Natural breast augmentation surgery will utilize the liposuction procedure in order to remove fat from other parts of the body and transfer them to the breasts. This is a great option for women who want natural looking breasts.
This type of surgery will have different risks, compared to breast implant surgery. Women who want to undergo the fat transferring procedure will need to have enough fat on their body in order to qualify. Women who are underweight, have a low amount of body fat or a high amount of muscle mass may not qualify. A woman needs a lot of fat to make the breasts larger and this is usually taken from the stomach or buttocks. While not every woman is a candidate for this type of breast augmentation surgery, for those who do qualify, it offers several benefits.
This type of procedure is considered a safer alternative to breast implant surgery and it can help with cases where implant use is not necessary. As an example, it can be a great solution for women with asymmetrical breasts, or for women who need breast reconstruction. It’s also a good alternative for women who want to make more subtle changes to the size and shape of their breasts.
You’ve learned about the benefits for this type of surgery, so now it’s important that you learn about the risks and possible side effects. This includes the dangers and risks associated with liposuction, such as infection, swelling, bruising and scarring. Side effects associated with fat transferring of the breasts can include saggy skin, bruising and scarring.
What are the Typical Results for Fat Transferring Breast Augmentation?
It’s also important that you have realistic expectations in terms of the results after surgery and the healing period. You will not experience the same dramatic results like you would if you received breast implants. Also, there is usually a percentage of the fat that gets absorbed by the body during the healing process. In most cases, women will be able to retain approximately eighty percent of the fat. In rarer cases, you may only be able to retain ten to twenty percent of the fat, which means you’ll need additional surgeries.
A natural breast enhancement will give you visible results, but may not be the right option for you if you want to go bigger than one cup size
