Natural Breast Enhancement Offers Attractive Alternative to Implants

For the thousands of women considering breast augmentation with silicone or saline implants, going under the knife can be an intimidating process and presents a significant number of risks and complications. Surgeons in the United States are now experimenting with a new fat transfer technique that allows the physician to remove unwanted body fat from the hips, thighs and stomach and transfer it directly into the breasts with  a simple procedure.

Many women who have had children or simply want to improve their silhouette may be good candidates for this type of procedure because it presents very few risks and results are immediate. The physician performs a simple laser liposuction procedure to remove body fat from the thighs, buttocks or stomach, and the fat is then harvested before it is reinjected into the breasts.

This procedure is now called ‘natural breast enhancement’ because it helps to increase the breasts by up to one cup size or more, and the breasts look and feel completely natural because there are no artificial implants involved. Natural breast enhancement procedures are currently available at select cosmetic and plastic surgery centers around the country, and costs approximately $10,000.

According to Dr. Sydney Coleman of Tribeca Plastic Surgery, plastic surgeons have been transplanting fat to the breast since 1995. However, only some physicians have the skills and experience to perform this procedure effectively. With the right technique, the breast can be sculpted and shaped, and there are very few incisions involved with the procedure.

Fat grafting to the breasts can be used to disguise breast implants that do not look natural, and also to create a set of plumper, more natural-looking breasts for individuals that want to enhance their appearance.  At Dr. Coleman’s clinic, the procedure costs between $20,000 to $30,000 and recovery time is approximately one week.
