Women unhappy with their breasts’ shape and volume may incorrectly believe that breast implantation is the only way to achieve their desired results. Fortunately, there are other options today for Guilford, Connecticut, women to consider. This includes the fat transfer method for breast augmentation. Instead of implants, Dr. Derek Steinbacher uses the patient’s fat to create a natural-looking boost to the chest, ensuring safe and lasting results!
The fat transfer method for breast augmentation is a two-step process. First, through traditional liposuction, Dr. Derek Steinbacher removes excess fat from another area of the patient’s body, such as the thighs or stomach. This fat is purified before being injected into the breasts strategically to create volume and fullness. The entire procedure is performed using local anesthesia, so there is no need for general anesthesia or a hospital stay!
There are many benefits to choosing breast augmentation with fat transfer over conventional implants, including:
First, women interested in this procedure need to schedule their evaluation. During this time, Dr. Derek Steinbacher will discuss with patients what to expect with the process and ensure that patients are proper candidates. He evaluates the area and makes unique and custom-tailored recommendations to the patient’s desires and budget. A surgical date is then scheduled, during which the fat transfer breast augmentation is performed. Fat is removed via manual liposuction from one part of the body, such as the flanks or abdomen, and then injected into the breasts to add volume and shape. Some women use fat transfer to help balance out their breasts when one is a different size than the other.
Women should expect some soreness and bruising immediately following surgery, but this is typically short-lived. Most patients report feeling well enough to return to work and normal activities within a few days. The results of the procedure are often visible immediately, though it can take several weeks for the full effects to be seen as the swelling subsides. These results are long-lasting, provided that patients maintain a stable weight.
Obtaining natural-looking changes and contours to the body is easy using the fat transfer process.
