In the quest to enhance your curves, you may be presented with a number of options. Breast augmentation is no longer restricted to the placement of synthetic implants into the breast tissue. Today, women also have the option of natural breast augmentation, a procedure that increases the size of the breasts using fat from the patient’s own body. If you have been wondering whether natural breast augmentation is the right choice for you, there are a few questions to ask yourself first.
How much size increase are you looking for?
Natural breast augmentation typically offers a subtler size increase for women that want to accentuate their curves without looking “over done.” The procedure involves injection of harvested fat into strategic areas of the breast to create fullness and symmetry between the breasts. In addition to increasing size (usually about one cup size), this procedure can correct asymmetries and dimpling – sometimes more effectively than implants can.
Do you have fat to harvest from another area?
One of the biggest advantages to natural breast augmentation is the ability to trim and tone one area of the body while enhancing another.However, you must have sufficient fat cells in another area like the midsection, thighs or buttocks to produce enough fat for the injection into the breasts. Dr. Birchall is experienced in this procedure and can determine through an examination whether there are sufficient fat cells to give your breasts the fullness you are hoping for.
Are you prepared for long-lasting results?
Both implants and fat transfer will provide you with long-lasting results in your breast augmentation. In fact, most women find that as long as they continue to be satisfied with the size of their breasts, they can enjoy their results for a lifetime. If you want to make changes to your natural breast augmentation, liposuction might be an option to remove some of the tissue and create a more compact chest contour.
Are you concerned about residual scarring from your procedure?
Some women shy away from breast augmentation because they are concerned about the scarring the procedure might leave on their breasts.Although surgeons take steps to minimize visual scarring, the placement of implants into the breast tissue requires incisions and that involves scarring. On the other hand, natural breast augmentation is performed using injections, so there is no residual scarring to worry about.
Do you want breasts that look and feel natural?
Some women are also concerned that implants will not look or feel like natural breast tissue. There can also be worries that the edges of the implant might show on the outside of the breast, particularly in women with less breast tissue to begin with. The good news is there is no worry about this problem with natural breast augmentation. Because your natural cells are used,the breasts will continue to look and feel natural after the procedure.
