Implant Free Augmentation
When most people think of breast augmentations, they think of silicone or saline implants. And while implants are certainly a great way to enhance the breasts, a new form of augmentation that does not use implants allows patients to move fat and tissue from another part of their body to their breasts. This allows for a more natural looking breast augmentation
Candidates for Implant Free Augmentation
Patients with excess fat and tissue elsewhere on the body such as the abdomen, inner thigh, or gluteus looking for a natural looking breast augmentation are great candidates for an implant free breast augmentation. This includes those looking to reconstruct the breast after a mastectomy or repair previous implants. Patients should be in good health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about surgery. An implant free breast augmentation cannot increase breast size more than two cup sizes. If you desire larger breasts, consider silicone or saline implants.
First, a liposuction procedure is performed to remove excess fat from the abdomen, thighs, or gluteus area. After the fat cells are extracted, they are purified and are then ready to be injected into the breasts. The fat is injected into the breasts in a series of small injections. A less invasive procedure than traditional breast implants, an implant free breast augmentation is less likely to interfere with future mammograms and poses fewer risks of allergic reactions or rejections.
Because implant free breast augmentations are less invasive than silicone or saline implants, recovery is quicker – generally 48 hours. However because a liposuction procedure is performed in conjunction with an implant free breast augmentation, patients should be prepared for downtime associated with liposuction as well.
