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:
Imagine larger breasts without implants! Now imagine using your own body fat as the implant itself! You may wonder how this is possible. With a procedure called autologous fat grafting, fat is removed from one part of your body and transferred to the breast in a single procedure, without any visible scars! This revolutionary technique adds a very new dimension to breast augmentation and breast reconstruction as a patient's own body fat used exclusively to enlarge the breast! With this approach, the traditional breast implant is no longer used at all.
If you're considering breast implants, there are some key questions to bear in mind. Southern Surgical Arts has taken some time to modify for their patients in the Chattanooga, North Georgia and North Alabama areas an article originally written by Author Lucy Ballinger, Body + Soul for Australian breast implant consumers.
Breast augmentation surgery can be a fairly extensive procedure and may leave you with swelling, pain and discomfort for several weeks after the procedure. Many breast augmentation cosmetic surgeons or board-certified plastic surgeons recommend a series of breast augmentation massage services during the post-op phase to help reduce swelling and water retention, and also to support your recovery.
