A fat transfer breast augmentation is a very popular procedure in St. Petersburg because it allows women to reduce the amount of unwanted fat in one area of their bodies and instead use it to enhance their cup size. The fat provides a natural shape and feel to the breasts for women who are not looking for very large breast enhancements and for those who favor a softer rather than a harder feel. Additionally, women appreciate the fact that they do not have to worry about capsular contracture, which can happen when breast implants are used.
Following a complete consultation during which our practitioner and the woman will discuss desires and goals, the fat transfer will be scheduled. Depending on our practitioner’s wishes, women will most likely not need general anesthesia for this procedure. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
In the first step, the fat is collected from the desired area. The collected tissues must then be filtered and purified to separate out only the fat cells and to ensure that there is nothing harmful mixed in with them. The next step is to inject these fat cells into the breasts. This is done using specialized techniques for the best shape and contours.
Most fat transfer breast augmentation procedures are done in an outpatient setting in the comfort of our surgical suite in St. Petersburg. After the procedure is completed, the patient will be allowed to rest for a set amount of time in the facility before being sent home. This allows the patient to rest comfortably in a familiar environment.
The risks involved with a fat transfer breast augmentation are usually quite minimal and are not as great as those associated with traditional breast implants. This is because this procedure is less invasive and also because it uses the woman’s own fat cells, which are safe and natural.
Women who want to enhance their cup size naturally are encouraged to schedule a consultation at Clinique of Plastic Surgery and Laser Institute in St. Petersburg to learn more about the fat transfer breast augmentation process. This procedure is a great choice for those wanting small increases in breast size and who want to stay away from the less natural feeling of saline or silicone implants.
