Enhance Breasts with Your Own Fat: How Natural Breast Augmentation Really Works
posted on 2/16/2013
If you’ve been thinking about getting breast implants but are still hesitating to go under the knife, there may be another option: natural breast augmentation. Dr. August Accetta of the Accetta Institute of Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington Beach, California, specializes in breast rejuvenation using the Natural Breast Augmentation technique and explains that fat transfer can produce very natural-looking results while restoring youthful volume. Is it really possible to enhance the breasts with your own body fat? Here’s a closer look at how this procedure works:
How Natural Breast Augmentation Works
The natural breast augmentation procedure is actually a fat grafting procedure and the surgeon can remove fat from somewhere else – usually the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs – and then transplant it into the breasts. Dr. Accetta describes it as a “2 in 1” procedure because he can remove fat from unwanted areas and create larger, fuller breasts.
Dr. Accetta explains, “While natural breast augmentation is used to increase breast size up a cup or two sizes, another important benefit is for women who may have lost breast volume after pregnancy and nursing, or just as time goes by.” Dr. Accetta points out that this procedure isn’t just a filler treatment where the fat is injected into the breasts, but that the transferred fat is actually a graft that ends up becoming a part of the normal breast tissue.
Only a few board-certified plastic surgery doctors and cosmetic surgery doctors around the United States are trained in this advanced procedure and the process does require a lot of skill – the fat must be moved in a way that it will stay alive as it is placed in the syringes. The surgeon can re-inject the fatty tissue into the breast in very slow increments so that the fat can reattach itself to the breast tissue with the greatest supply of blood and nutrients. If this doesn’t happen, the fat cells will simply die.
