Dr. Aslani comments on the most important Do's and Dont's in modern fat transfer Breast Augmentation
What is a fat transfer Breast Augmentation?
Essentially fat transfer Breast Augmentation uses breast from an area of the body where it is unwanted. The ideal candidate for fat transfer Breast Augmentation is a patient that is, for example, very keen to get rid of a fat deposit on her love handles and wants to make use of the removed fat for enhancement elsewhere." Dr. Aslani conrms this " Those patients, in my experience, tend to be very happy with the collateral eect to her breasts that they get together with with the fat removal. Satisfaction rates with this tend to be very high."
What about the downsides?
If you're thinking 'Great - bigger boobs, smaller bum' then hold your horses. Fat transfer breast augmentation works only for a limited amount of size increase. "If you want a more signicant augmentation, one session of fat transfer may not be sucient, and you may have one or two top up sessions," says Dr. Aslani. "Patients who are determined to have fat only, normally have no problem with this since fat transfer Breast Augmentation is usually done under local anesthetic only." Other downsides include the amount of fat that is required to do the transfer - some people just don't have enough!
Who benets most?
While not everyone is an ideal candidate for fat transfer Breast Augmentation, it does have several benets. Dr. Aslani says: "It is a very good option for patients who are out for a very natural result regarding look and feel and do not necessarily want a very drastic breast size increase. It can be great for breast reconstruction if someone has had a lumpectomy, or for correcting defects like uneven breasts. It is our procedure of choice for patients who want top ups in size with existing implants. We have also had excellent experience with fat if patients want their old implants removed, don't want new ones but of course still want some volume!
What is "supercharged" Breast Augmentation ?
Supercharged, or composite Breast Augmentation is increasingly popular in the United States and many surgeons see this as the perfect option for the perfect breast. "Supercharged Breast Augmentation combines the advantages of both techniques, implants and fat" says Dr. Aslani. In supercharged Breast Augmentation an implant, usually somewhat smaller than commonly used for Breast Augmentation, is combined with a natural volume increase with the patients own fat. "It allows the surgeons to achieve a more natural feel, and a very natural look. It allows for more shaping of the cleavage area and it avoids the gap between the breasts. At the same time, one can achieve much greater size increase than with fat alone.
