Naturally Fuller, More Voluptuous Breasts without Implants: Breast Enhancement with Fat Grafting
Breast enhancement with fat grafting, also known as autologous breast enlargement, is an advanced method of breast augmentation that utilizes your own fat cells to improve the volume and curvature of your breasts. By gently removing excess fatty tissue from areas of the body where you want fewer curves and precisely implanting it into the breasts—exactly where you want a little extra curviness—you can enjoy fuller, naturally-beautiful breasts. This procedure does not require the use of implants, involves very small incisions that usually heal with little to no scarring, and has the added benefit of leaving you slimmer and trimmer as well!
While it sounds simple, breast enhancement with fat grafting is, in fact, an advanced procedure that requires a high degree of skill and precision to ensure safe and successful results. Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin at Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery in Richmond, Virginia and Vienna, Virginia are both Board certified plastic surgeons and recognized experts in the field of body contouring and breast enhancement. Their knowledge of the advanced techniques required to ensure safe harvesting and successful grafting, coupled with their dedication to patient care and satisfaction, will help ensure that your breast enhancement procedure leaves you looking your very best!
Benefits of Enlarging Your Breasts with Fat Grafting
Breast enlargement with fat grafting offers amazing benefits for many patients, including:
- Breasts look and feel natural
- Improves physique by removing excess fat from areas such as abdomen and thighs
- Utilizes your own tissues; no implants or other foreign objects
- Smaller incisions than implant augmentation
- Less discomfort and downtime than implant augmentation
For some patients, however, breast enlargement with fat grafting may not be the most appropriate option. For instance, breast enlargement with fat grafting can only increase breast size by one, or possibly two, cup sizes, so women seeking dramatic breast enhancement will achieve better results with implant augmentation. Fat grafting cannot address the appearance of ptosis (sagging or drooping of the breasts), so for some women, a breast lift (with or without augmentation) may be more appropriate.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Sundin will review the benefits and drawbacks of breast augmentation with fat grafting for your specific circumstances, and work with you to select the procedure or combination of procedures best suited to achieve your unique aesthetic goals.
How Autologous Breast Enhancement Works
Fat grafting is a remarkably simple procedure that, when performed carefully and precisely by a highly-qualified, Board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin, can result in fuller, curvier breasts that look and feel like your own natural breasts! Fat cells are carefully removed from areas of the body with excess fatty tissue, usually the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, using a gentle liposuction. The fat cells are purified, then injected precisely into the breasts to increase the volume and fullness of the existing breasts. The result: smaller curves where you don’t want them and fuller curves where you do!
Women with very small, tight breast tissue may see improved results if they utilize the BRAVA system in advance of their fat grafting procedure. The BRAVA system is an external method of expanding the natural breast tissue in order to create more room for adding the donor fat cells. Moreover, the BRAVA system can improve blood supply to the region, increasing the likelihood that the transplanted fat cells will survive. The BRAVA system requires wearing suction devices over the breasts at least 10 hours per day for several weeks before and after the procedure.
