Breast augmentation with fat grating vs breast implants

  • Fat grafting– This procedure involves using liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as the stomach, and placing it in the breast to give you a more enlarged breast. Fat grafting leaves minimal scarring and can address other areas of concern where you would like fat removed. This procedure can be combined with others, such as a tummy tuck so you can address multiple concerns at once.
  • Implants– It’s important to note that not all implants are the same. We work with Ideal implants, silicone implants, and saline implants. Each can give you a different look and feel which will help us decide which one lines up best with your goals. This procedure can also be combined with other procedures. We’ll discuss your options in your consultation.

How to decide if fat grafting or breast implants are right for you

During your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals and how each option could benefit you. Each type of implant can produce a different look and so can fat grafting. Depending on the look you’re going for, how you feel about implants vs. fat grafting, and your current body, we’ll help you decide which option is best for you.
