Breast implants are a popular, reliable surgery to adjust the size of your breasts and achieve your ideal silhouette. Even still, there are some patients who may want to consider a breast implant alternative in NYC.
Fat transfer for breast augmentation is a suitable alternative for patients who don’t want to get implants. At Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Brian Bassiri-Tehrani provides breast enhancement tailored to each patient’s individual goals.
Who is a candidate for a fat transfer to the breasts?
Patients who are interested in liposuction of certain areas of their body and want a modest and natural breast augmentation without an implant are good candidates. The volume of enhancement depends on how much fat is available to harvest and transfer to the breasts. Depending on the desired increase in size, multiple surgeries may be needed to achieve the desired volume enhancement.
Why consider a breast implant alternative?
Both implants and fat transfer have advantages and disadvantages. Some people are concerned about having synthetic material in their body (implants) and would rather have a natural filling material. Since there is no implant in your body, there is no need to do surveillance or check to see if the implant is intact or ruptured every few years.
Fat transfer can replace breast implants, too
For patients who no longer desire to have breast implants in place but still want to have volume in their chest, fat transfer may be a good option.
During the same procedure, you can have your breast implants removed, have liposuction of the areas you want, and have the fat transferred to your breasts.
Depending on the size and shape of your breasts, you may or may not need a breast lift at the same time. During your consultation, Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani can talk you through the options for your surgery.
Benefits of fat transfer for breast augmentation
While breast implants are a safe and effective procedure, there are some benefits to getting fat transferred instead of implants.
Natural feeling results
Fat transfer uses liposuction to remove fat from one part of the body to use to increase the size of breasts. This can provide more natural-looking and feeling results.
Two procedures in one
Because fat transfer uses liposuction, patients get the benefit of two procedures in one.
The incisions for fat transfer are generally smaller than those needed for inserting implants. However, it’s still important to plan for adequate recovery time after your breast augmentation.
