Breast Augmentation Without Implants!

August 10, 2016

When the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) published their statistics for surgical procedures for 2015, breast augmentation remained the most popular procedure performed.


In a study by ASPS, 98% of breast augmentation patients state their results met or exceeded their expectations. The study also revealed that 92% of women said it improved their self-esteem. However, breast augmentation with breast implants is not for all women seeking fuller breasts. Some women continue to develop capsular contracture no matter what precautions have been taken. Others are reluctant due to other issues such as scarring, loss of nipple sensation, wrinkling, rippling, or possible future deflation or leakage.

Not long ago women wished they could take fat from their tummy or waist and move it to their breasts, and now they can!Breast Augmentation After Fat Transfer

Due to significant advances in fat transfer, plastic surgeons can take fat via liposuction from an area with extra fat. Impurities are removed, and stem cells are concentrated and then the fat is transferred to the breasts by dozens of small injections which allow the surgeon to shape the breasts naturally without implants. There is no risk of leakage or deflation, and there is the additional benefit of reducing an area that has excess fat.Fat for Breast Augmentation

Purification of Fat

Twenty-five years ago, ASPS did not approve of fat transfer to the breasts because the results were unpredictable and radiologists had difficulty determining fat nodules from cancer. However, today with great advances in technology, that is no longer an issue, and ASPS acknowledges that breast augmentation by fat transfer is a viable option for many women.
