You very well may be an excellent candidate for breast augmentation with your own body fat. This is an amazing opportunity to utilize what you have in one area and place it to your breasts. Its natural and once integrated, has the potential to last a lifetime without the concerns of having an implant placed. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 866-646-6136. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day!

I don't know what you mean by "natural."  Costs of any operation vary with geographic location, type of operation, type of anesthesia, and type of implant. Breast augmentation with silicone gel implants can run from $2500 to $4000 plus the cost of the implants which can be $600 to $800 each.   There are also facility costs and the cost of the anesthesiologist.  There is a new technology which avoids implants, relying on a suction machine called the Brava device to enlarge the breast.  This requires wearing this suction device 10 hours a day for 4 weeks followed by liposuction and fat grafting.  This is a new technique and is done in only a few centers in this country.  I have no idea of the cost.
