Breast augmentation fat transfer is becoming more popular amongst women seeking an increase in breast mound size. This is because breast augmentation fat transfer has several advantages over breast augmentation with breast implants.
The first obvious advantage is that fat is from your own tissues and this eliminates the need for a foreign element. The first advantage of not using a foreign material such as a breast implant is that you avoid consequences of having a foreign body implanted in you. For example, when you get a thorn in your finger, your body will create scar tissue around it to wall it off, and if you are lucky push it out. Well, the same thing occurs with breast implants.
Sooner or later, the scar tissue can become so thick that it starts deforming your breast, called capsular contracture. In addition, the fat cells do not require to be replaced as breast implants do. On average, breast implants get a rupture and need to be replaced at a rate of 1% per year or for example 1 out of 10 over a decade. Two final advantages of the breast augmentation fat transfer over implants are that the filling of the breast is not limited to a round implant centered on the nipple-areola. Not only can this implant be felt like a discrete mass, but it also does not allow for customized filling of the breast.
Specifically, the fat can be injected throughout the breast such as not only over the central breast but also in the breast periphery. The fat can be even injected to correct contour irregularities such as lateral breast concavity. Although this is a low incidence of rupture, breast implant ruptures do happen and can be a nuisance. Another advantage of fat grafting over implants, in particular, is that the fat can Several advantages are specific to breast augmentation fat transfer.
These include the fact that no incision line is required to place the fat. This results in the avoidance of surgical scars. In addition, patients can benefit from the fact they can have total body sculpting to achieve high definition liposuction body contouring results. Moreover, injury to nipple and areola sensation is eliminated. Finally, patients have observed that as they get older and put on some weight, their breasts become even more voluptuous.
The only disadvantage of breast augmentation fat transfer is that only moderate volumes of breast mound increase can be achieved during a single session. The limits of fat transfer volumes range between 150 to 200cc per breast. This is because the breasts are poorly vascularized and limit the amount of fat that can re-establish vascularity when transferred. For patients desiring more volume than this limit, serial fat grafting sessions such as 2 to 3 sessions may be required.
