This method of breast augmentation uses your own fat to enhance volume and the appearance of your breast. Fat or adipose tissue harvested from specific areas of the body, can be preserved safely and re-injected in the breast in order to re-create their most natural aesthetic shape and restore a youthful appearance. This is very much regarded in cosmetic surgery. This technique is gaining popularity among patients who want liposuction of other areas such as abdomen or thighs, in addition to an enhanced breast. Also, natural breast augmentation can be used to correct deformities, ripples or asymmetry caused with artificial implants, especially when applied above the muscle. Whether it is the drop of the breast from having children, the loss of volume from losing weight, or just the need for some firmness and natural shape with a size increase, fat transfer can help.
Fat transfer is done using a local anesthetic and mild sedation. A small surgical instrument known as a cannula is inserted into the area of fat removal. The cannula is attached to a vacuum source, which provides gentle suction to remove the emulsified fat. Modern techniques of liposuction target fat cells leaving behind a normal collagen matrix. Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center introduced Body-Jet® Liposuction. This amazing technique uses pressurized water or water jet to obtain fat tissue sparing not only that remaining matrix but also the integrity of the graft adipose and stem cells. This concept renders enough cell survival that there is no need to enhance the graft with PRP (platelet rich plasma) or stem cell isolation and enrichment. As with other techniques such as vibroliposuction, fat is emulsified while simultaneously extracted. After being processed through a LipoCollector® 3 device, this fat is then ready to be grafted or transplanted.
