Not every patient wants to use implants in order to reshape and or resize the appearance of their breasts.
Breast augmentations with fat grafting can achieve similar results as implants, but instead, the change is achieved with the careful injection of fat. With each patient at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, we prefer a holistic approach, working to achieve one’s desired look.
Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DC At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery
Finding the best plastic surgeon for you and your breast augmentation is critical. Our surgeons have decades of experience making every patient feel beautiful with the latest innovative practices.
What is a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
During a breast augmentation with fat grafting procedure, we will repurpose your fat and use it to reshape and contour the breasts. Small needle-sized incisions are made in discreet locations of your breasts in order to get your desired size, shape, and lift.
There is a dual benefit when using fat grafting for breast augmentation. This benefit is by targeting unwanted fatty deposits and using them for breast enhancement.
Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DC Recovery Period
Scarring may be minimal during this procedure due to the small incisions. However, the healing process differs between individuals. Recovery will be virtually immediate as patients can fully exercise within a day or two.
The surgery time is between 1-2 hours, with a recovery time between 1-2 days, with no overnight stay typically required.
Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DC Benefits
There are several benefits to fat grafting breast augmentations. This includes things such as :
- Increasing breast symmetry
- Improving projection
- Increasing and reshaping cleavage
- Targeting unwanted fatty deposits
- Restoring breast volume and shape typically lost after pregnancy, aging, and or weight loss
- No need for the use of an implant to improve one’s appearance
- Minimal scarring due to small incisions
Combining Procedures For Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DC
You can combine a variety of procedures for breast augmentation with fat grafting. Many patients choose to combine this procedure with other surgeries such as a tummy tuck. This is so both procedures can happen at once for recovery time.
During your consultation for a breast augmentation with fat transfer/fat grafting, we may discuss the following:
- Breast Implants vs Fat Grafting
- Liposuction procedures
- Breast Sizes
- Breast Shapes
- Breast Projection
- Lifestyle and activity levels
Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DC Vs. Breast Implants
While breast augmentations reshape and resize one’s appearance with silicone or saline implants, breast augmentations with fat grafting will achieve similar results by using the careful injection of fat. During your consultation, your doctor will work with you to determine how to achieve your desired look and the amount of fat necessary to meet your needs.
Implant-based augmentation can achieve the results you desire with saline and silicone options. With saline implants, the shell is filled with saline to your preferred volume, increasing the shape and size of your breasts with a firmer feel. With silicone implants, a silicone shell is filled to your desired volume and offers a more natural look and feel.
