Breast augmentation using your own fat is the fastest growing procedure at Avenue Plastic Surgery Melbourne. It is suitable for women who desire a one cup size increase in their breasts and who have some excess fat that can be removed by liposuction. It is used to treat women with breast asymmetry and is a popular method of increasing breast size in women having a “Mommy Makeover” in which the tummy and breasts are improved during the one procedure. It can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift.
The advantages of breast enlargement using your own fat are:
- Implants are not required
- The breasts feel completely natural
- No incisions are required as the fat is transferred by injection
- Unwanted fat from the thighs, hips or abdomen is removed by liposuction.
The fat is transferred as a graft of living tissue and continues to survive in the breast provided biological conditions are suitable. If too much fat is transferred the tissues become too tense and the fat will not survive. Lumpiness may occur. Skill and judgement are required to avoid complications and for a favourable outcome.
