As women age it’s natural for breast tissue to appear saggy and smaller. Breastfeeding can also contribute to this unwanted change in appearance. If you would like to increase your breast by one or two cup sizes and are considering implants, we at Advanced Liposuction Center would like to offer a better alternative: natural breast augmentation. With the fat transfer technique, you remove fat from an area of your body where it is unwanted (love handles, abdomen and thighs are all popular choices) and use it to naturally add volume to your breasts. Below are 10 benefits of this procedure over implants:

  1. By using your own body fat you eliminate the need to introduce anything foreign into your body.
  2. Natural breast augmentation is permanent. No need to replace silicon or saline after a period of time.
  3. The results of our fat transfer procedure are natural looking and feeling breasts.
  4. Natural breast augmentation does not interfere with future mammograms.
  5. This procedure is completely safe and very few complications have been reported. Since you are using your own fat, tissue reactions are virtually impossible.
  6. The fat transfer and breast augmentation can be performed in our recently renovated Cranberry Township medical facility. (Note: You will need a driver to take you home after the procedure is completed.)
  7. Mild sedation and local anesthesia are all that’s needed to perform the fat transfer procedure.
  8. Your natural breast augmentation results in less than 48 hours of downtime, with very little pain and discomfort. Most patients can resume light exercise two weeks after the procedure and even begin upper body activities three weeks after the surgery.
  9. Our minimal incision surgery greatly reduces the risk of scarring.
  10. We offer free consultations at any of our 9 Pittsburgh area offices. Have more questions?

Can natural breast augmentation help with post-pregnancy breast changes?

Yes, natural breast augmentation can help address post-pregnancy breast changes. Here’s how it can be beneficial:

1. Restoring Volume: Pregnancy and breastfeeding often lead to a loss of breast volume. Natural breast augmentation, which involves fat transfer, can restore lost volume and enhance the overall size and shape of the breasts.

2. Correcting Asymmetry: Post-pregnancy, some women experience asymmetrical breasts. Fat transfer can be used to correct these imbalances by selectively adding volume to specific areas.

3. Improving Contour and Shape: The procedure can help improve the contour and shape of the breasts, making them appear fuller and more youthful. This can address sagging or deflation that sometimes occurs after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

4. Minimizing Scarring: Unlike traditional breast implants, natural breast augmentation using fat transfer involves smaller incisions, resulting in minimal scarring.

5. Natural Look and Feel: The use of your own fat provides a natural look and feel, which can be preferable for those seeking a more subtle enhancement compared to implants.

How does smoking affect the outcomes of natural breast augmentation?

Smoking can significantly affect the outcomes of natural breast augmentation. Here are some ways it can impact the procedure and recovery:

1. Reduced Fat Survival: Smoking decreases blood flow and oxygen supply to tissues, which can reduce the survival rate of the transferred fat cells. Adequate blood supply is essential for the newly transferred fat to integrate successfully and thrive.

2. Impaired Healing: Nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes constrict blood vessels, impairing circulation and slowing down the healing process. This can lead to prolonged recovery times and an increased risk of complications.

3. Increased Risk of Infection: Poor blood flow and impaired immune function associated with smoking can elevate the risk of infections post-surgery. Infections can complicate recovery and affect the overall outcome of the procedure.
