Fat Transfer Or Breast ImplantsPosted on June 5, 2022
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed worldwide. However, women interested in improving the shape and size of their breasts usually face a dilemma of choosing between breast implants and breast fat transfer for getting the breasts of their dreams.
Breast augmentation using implants is a proven approach that has been refined by multiple cosmetic surgeons over the years. In contrast, fat transfer or fat grafting is a recent innovation in the field of breast enhancement. It allows for unwanted fat from other body areas to be injected into the breasts. Both techniques can result in long-lasting and beautiful results for the right patient and when performed by an experienced surgeon.
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim, provides breast implants as well as fat transfer breast augmentation surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Fat Transfer for a “Small” Boost to Your Breasts
There is no doubt that breast fat grafting techniques have revolutionized the industry. They are a great option for patients seeking natural and attractive enhancements to their overall appearance. The procedure requires surplus fat from other areas of the body, which allows your breasts to have a natural movement and feel.
Breast fat grafting helps in achieving a natural look and others may not even be aware that you got any procedure done. However, the technique cannot be used for achieving dramatic results. Women seeking modest increase in their breast size (not more than one cup) make ideal candidates for the procedure.
Breast Implants for the “Wow” Factor
Your cosmetic surgeon will understand what you require from the procedure. Breast implants may be an ideal choice if you are looking for a more striking visual impact or substantial increase in size. Implants can help achieve dramatic increase in upper pole fullness, projection, and volume. Correlating with this, getting implants is more conspicuous as compared to getting fat grafting.
Breast Fat Transfer for a Natural Procedure
Many women express concerns about the results of having a medical device, such as implants within their body. You can avoid the potential risks of breast implants by getting fat grafting performed. You don’t need to worry about capsular contracture, rupturing, or rippling. The procedure removes the possibility of removing or replacing the breast implants at a future date as well. The plastic surgery procedure is safe and implant-free.
Breast Implants for Maximizing Options
Breast augmentation following implants offers the best flexibility for both the surgeon and patient. The consultation process in case of breast implants involves a wide range of decisions that will eventually determine the outcome of the surgery.
Your surgeon will work with you to choose the right type, size, shape, and profile of breast implants. They will also discuss the incision placement technique and location used during the surgery. Results can be customized for suiting your aesthetic goals and anatomy. You won’t have this level of customization for breast fat grafting.
