Haven’t we all wished we could donate our fat, and not just our organs? Don’t we often wish we could transfer fat from one part of our body to another? Well, we can! We can move the extra fat from our tummy and use it to enhance our breasts or even our buttocks. This means a smaller waistline and a bodacious cleavage in one sitting.
What are the main reasons women come in for breast augmentation?
From our patients, we see that one of the leading incentives women choose to indulge in a procedure to enhance their breasts is to boost their self-esteem and appearance. Having larger breasts makes many women feel connected to their femininity.
They believe that feeling good about their body in turn can help their sex drive, going by the reasoning that if they feel sexy they won’t be embarrassed about their body, therefore will be more willing to initiate love-making.
Some come in due to weight loss, as this can cause significant changes to the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. Many women also come to correct a reduction in breast volume after having children or to balance a difference in breast size. Others simply want rounder, fuller breasts.
What’s the most common breast enlargement method?
For a long time, implants have been a very common form of breast enhancement. In this procedure, foreign objects known as fillers _ such as silicone or saline _ are implanted into the breasts to pad them. These implants can be placed directly below the skin, or can be submuscular _ put firmly behind the chest muscle wall _ which is recommended for those who already have larger breasts or require mammograms.
What are the side effects that come with the surgery?
Firstly you need to understand that breast implants cannot be expected to last forever. Normally, if done properly, there shouldn’t be any serious complications, but since it’s a surgery, there are always risks. For starters, because foreign objects are inserted, complications can arise with the body’s reaction to the implants. When a breast implant is inserted, a scar capsule forms around it as part of the natural healing process. The capsule may sometimes tighten and compress the implant, causing the breast to feel firmer than normal. Capsular contracture can occur to varying degrees. If it is severe, it can cause discomfort or changes in the breast’s appearance. With implants, you may also experience some loss of sensation in your nipple and breast.
What non-surgical alternatives are available?
There are a large number of hormonal and homeopathic pills and creams that promise breast enhancement, but there’s little proof of their effectiveness. A promising non-surgical breast enlargement is via fat transfer from liposuction, using your own body tissue. And to achieve longer-lasting and safer results, we can use a better version of that, known as stem cell-assisted liposuction. In this procedure, fat is drained from an area with excess fat such as the stomach using liposuction.
Does this mean we can get a smaller waistline and fuller breasts in one sitting?
Yes, that’s pretty much what stem cell-assisted liposuction is. We first use liposuction to take unwanted fat from the belly. Then stem cells are extracted from a portion of the fat by a complex process in a specially equipped laboratory and added to the remaining body fat.
This fat is then inserted into the breasts. The highlight of this is it is natural in the sense that your own fat is used instead of an implant. The other advantage is it helps to make your waist visibly thinner by draining out excess fat. There’s also no need for large incisions to be made. Finally, you only require one sitting to get waistline results that last a year or more, and eventually, once the fat survives in the breasts, it is there for life.
Is every woman eligible for this natural breast augmentation procedure?
Generally, the best candidates for breast augmentation are women in good health aged 18 or older, who want to improve their appearance and are not pregnant or nursing. However, other than those requirements, fat transfer for breast augmentation is also only a viable alternative to breast implants for women who don’t want an implant, don’t want a drastic size change, and aren’t very thin. This means, although we are all very grateful fat can now be moved from one place to another, it also means there’s got to be enough fat to move.
