With fat transfer breast augmentation the idea is to allow you to lose unwanted fat and gain more of it where you desire. Imagine how great it would be to lose inches of unwanted fat and grow your breasts bigger at the same time with no foreign object inserted into your body. Wouldn’t that be the ultimate dream come true? With the latest breakthrough of fat transfer breast augmentation, that is no longer just an imagination.

How Does Stem Cell Breast Augmentation Work Exactly?

Stem cells are extracted from the fat from liposuction procedures. What makes them so special is that they can turn into anything you want, based on where you plant them. In fact, there is already amazing medical advancement using stem cells to treat both congenital and degenerative diseases. Since the cells are withdrawn from your body, it won’t reject them which means minimal risks of possible side effects from surgery.

The overview of the stem cell breast augmentation procedure :

  • First, the surgeon will do liposuction on the areas of your body to take out the unwanted fat
  • Then the suctioned fat will be divided into 2 parts; stem cells from the first half to be extracted and purified
  • The stem cells from first half fat will then be mixed with the second half before being injected back into the wanted areas, whether it’s the buttocks or breasts, to increase the fullness and volume

 

Fat Grafting, or Autologous Fat Transfer

Fat grafting, also known as autologous fat transfer for breast augmentation are some other terms used to refer to the augmentation using the patient’s own fat. Some patients who have had silicone or saline breast augmentation surgeries in the past can also benefit from the fat grafting as it can help create more natural looks to the areas by blurring the line between the silicone bag and the breasts.

A Few Things to Keep in Mind

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) encourage that patients who seek to improve their appearance to look for necessary information prior to going through the operation. The good news is, since the fat is withdrawn from the patient, the patient’s body will not reject the stem cells. This greatly minimizes the risk and the side effects.

Stem cell breast augmentation

The procedure with fat grafting, which includes the stem cell breast reconstruction surgery, is widely used in recovered breast-cancer patients who have lost some breast tissues to the disease. For women who desire larger, and also more natural-looking breasts will benefit from the natural breast augmentation fat transfer when used together with the conventional breast implants. The fat will blur the line between the implants and the real breasts creating rather softer texture and appearance.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation – Pros and Cons

Pros

  • No risk of rejection or allergic reaction
  • The procedure allows the breasts to move more freely, making them look more natural
  • There are no incisions; only multiple small openings from the liposuction and injection procedures

Cons

  • The transplanted fat cells often do not survive long term since it can be absorbed by the body which means you will likely lose some volume.
  • This type of augmentation provides limited volume (less than a cup size) as compared to traditional implants
  • There’s no guarantee of breast symmetry or the final results (size, shape, appearance, etc.)

Last Word – Look for Certified Surgeon for Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation

If you decide that the fat grafting breast augmentation is right for you, next step is to look for a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience. Ask to see portfolio of the fat transfer breast augmentation before and after photos or speak to the surgeon’s former patients if possible.

Not a big fan of fat transfer breast augmentation? Alternatively, if you prefer a rather painless and natural way to enhance the look of your breasts, natural breast enlargement is a recognized alternative to improve the appearance and size of your breasts. Read more about it here!
