PLASTIC SURGERY CLINIC
Breast enhancement using fat grafts (lipoaugmentation) rather than silicone implants employs fat suctioned from the patient’s buttocks, thighs or other fatty areas. This type of breast surgery can be used to increase the size of the breast or to fill in defects or abnormalities in existing breasts, including enhancing the appearance after breast reconstruction and softening the look of existing implants. Lipoaugmentation of the breasts may offer patients permanent breast augmentation with a natural look and feel and the benefit of body contouring through liposuction — without the requirement for incisions or implants.
The PureGraft™ technique has recently been extended frome face to the breast and body where much larger amounts of fat are injected. Breast shaping and augmentation with fat grafting provides a more natural aesthetic result for aesthetic and reconstructive patients. The placement of the fat grafts allows for dramatic or subtle shaping of the breast in a manner previously not attainable. This type of shaping may be extremely difficult or impossible with standart implants or surgery. The result is a natural appearing reshaped breast in which telltale signs of implants and surgery are absent – the resultant breast is completely fluid and natural appearing.
This procedure offers mostly a one cup size enlargement and the degree of enlargement will depend on the amount of spare fat that the patient has.
Lipoaugmentation of the breast allows us to shape the breast and obtain beautiful, permanent augmentations. However, it is crucial to warn the patients that the PureGraft™ procedure is very technique dependent and to avoid complications it has to be done right by a properly and highly trained plastic surgeon.
