Breast augmentation using fillers - is it realy safe ?

Some plastic surgeons I met say that breast augmentation using acquafilling fillers or the filler that involves using one's own blood is safer than the typical breast implants.

They also say that acquafilling filler has been used widely in Europe for improving women's bodyline for many years and that it is proven to be safe.

I would like to ask if this is true because I can only get limited information from these doctors.

Thank you.

I perform aesthetic plastic surgery since 1985.

Breast augmentation can be done by breast implants, by liposculpturing and by fillers.
I would suggest to use only breast implants - approved by FDA! - or body fatty tissue.
Also for body contouring I would not recommand to use foreign filler - only body own materials.

"...They also say that acquafilling filler has been used widely in Europe for improving women's bodyline for many years and that it is proven to be safe."
This is not true.

Best regards from Frankfurt,

I would say fillers are not safe for using in breast augmentation, even fat transfer can cause micro calcifications that may interfere with breast cancer diagnosis.
The safest way to do breast augmentation are FDA approved breast implants.
If you simply don't want scars on your breast, we can put breast implants through transaxillary approach.
Please note we do all the techniques, including endoscopic HD transaxillary (through the armpit) with no scar on the breast! but also inframammary or periareolar (around the nipple) approach.
We are the only clinic from Romania and one of a few from Europe, that uses full HD endoscopic technique for transaxillary (through the armpit) breast augmentation. That allows us to put the implant WITHOUT ANY SCARS ON THE BREAST! with maximum precision, perfect view of the tissues, zooming the operation field and an extraordinary clarity!
All this without damaging the lymph nodes and the nerves from the armpit, and having a quicker recovery. That all done, of course, WITHOUT ANY SCARS ON YOUR BREAST, the only small scar that you have is perfectly hidden in the armpit! please check our clinic website, Estetis Clinic, for more details.

One of my friends has undergone breast augmentation surgery using implants. She got cohesive gel implants from McLean clinic in Mississauga to have a natural look. I think it is the safest way to enhance your boobs. Why take risks? Consult with a specialist in your locality and make a good decision. All the best!!

Breast Implants and Fat Transfer are both safe and proven techniques. You can also opt for Khawajas Scarless Breast Lift, if you require only lift of sagging breasts, without implants. It is completely safe, the results are excellent and there are no scars.

Hello Christine, Essentially i do agree with my other colleague. For breast the gel id not ideal..go for a Cohesive round gummy bear implant ..OMIBA keller is a minimal invasive BA were the entree point is inconspicuous. Keyhole surgery so to speak.

Filler injection for breast augmentation is not safe.and may cause a problem to your breast in the long run. I would recommend you do breast implant with highly cohesive silicone gel, textured surface which is safer and more compatible with your breast tissue.

Thank you for your inquiry. I would not recommend fillers. I advise you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon and inquire to use implants or fat transfer. These two methods are the safest and most practiced. Best of luck to you

Hi Christine,
I can suggest two options for my patients 1. Breast implant, 2. Fat transfer to breasts.
Breast implants brand is really important. Please don't look cheap treatments and if you would like to have some treatments talk with your surgeon first and get some information about them.
Good luck
