Should You Restore Your Breasts With Fat Transfer or Breast Implants?
There have been recent news stories on the benefits of having fat taken from a liposuction procedure and transferred to the breasts. Some women are now wondering if that procedure would be right for them. In the past, fat transfer was used during reconstructive breast surgery, but it is now being considered for cosmetic surgeries.
The idea of taking the fat from problems areas and relocating it to the breasts to gain size and shape is appealing for many women. But the process is not as simple as it sounds.
First, the fat taken from the liposuction procedure must be separated from other liquids before it is transferred to the breasts. Once it is placed in the breasts, the body will absorb a portion of it. Since everyone is different, it’s hard to tell exactly how much of the fat will be reabsorbed, and whether or not the breasts will appear symmetrical once they heal from the procedure.
One of the attractions of this procedure is that no breast implants are used. It seems more natural to use your own tissue for breast augmentation. It may sound like a dream come true, but women should realize there are still risks associated with the procedure.
