About Me

all about breast enlargement surgery

I have struggled with self-esteem for as long as I can remember. When I was in school, I was the girl that got picked on for not having the big breasts that the other girls had. As I grew older, I hoped that I wouldn't have the problem to deal with, but I just never developed. It was mind blowing because all of the women in my family are very well endowed in that area. The day I turned 21, I went to a cosmetic doctor for a consultation and learned all about my options for breast enlargement. This blog contains much of what I learned during my research before my surgery.


Breast Augmentation With A Fat Transfer Can Give You Larger Breasts Without Artificial Implants

If you wish you had larger breasts but you're leery of having artificial implants put in, you might ask a cosmetic doctor about breast augmentation with a fat transfer. This procedure takes fat from elsewhere on your body and places it in your breasts like an implant. Here's how this surgery works.

Fat Is Removed From Your Thighs Or Elsewhere

In order to do this surgery, you need some excess body fat. The doctor removes it via liposuction and saves it for transfer into your breasts. This is the same as undergoing liposuction to get rid of fat, except the goal isn't to sculpt your body, it's to remove the amount of fat needed for the transfer.

You may still need to wear a compression garment and go through the process of recovering from the liposuction during the same time you're recovering from your breast augmentation.

Fat Is Placed In Your Breast Instead Of An Implant

Instead of using an implant, the surgeon uses the fat obtained from the liposuction to enlarge your breasts. This is possible because the fat will grow in new vessels to establish a blood supply. When you've healed, your breasts seem naturally larger since they have more fat. They should look and feel more natural than implants do.

Some fat may not establish a blood supply and die off. To compensate for this, your doctor may initially inject more fat than you want. The type of procedure your doctor does determines how much larger you can make your breasts. It's common to increase your breast size by one cup.

Your doctor might be able to make your breast size larger than that if that's your goal. This can sometimes be done by wearing a device a few weeks before your surgery that expands your breasts so more fat can be put in. You can discuss this option with your doctor as you talk about how large you want your breasts to be.

A Breast Lift Might Be Needed Too

A breast augmentation procedure is for making your breasts larger. It doesn't help lift sagging breasts. If your breasts droop because you've lost a lot of weight or you've breastfed, then talk to your doctor about having a breast lift along with a breast augmentation. This not only makes your breasts larger, but it also reshapes them too so they no longer sag.

Like all medical procedures, you'll need an evaluation from the doctor to determine if you're a good match for breast augmentation surgery. Plus, the doctor has to determine that you have enough fat for the transfer. If you're a good match, you may finally have the larger breasts you want without getting artificial implants after all.
