The silicone implants provides both, however also increases the risk of long term complications. In the other hand the fat grafting can provide a good volume without a great projection and possibility of changes during the months after, but still is totally natural so has no potential of side effects. In the future, the advances goes to the use of small implants surrounded by fat, as a composite breast.
