Will Natural Breast Augmentation Give Me the Breast Contours I Want?
4 Minute Read:
It is common for women to desire bigger, fuller breasts. We see women improving their bust size all the time, from our neighbors to the celebrities we watch on the screen.
And while breast augmentation surgery with implants is the most common procedure used to give women the busty and beautiful chest contours they want, it is not the only way to achieve a more shapely bust. Natural breast augmentation with fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure that can give you the curvy and fuller breasts that you’re after.
With a natural breast augmentation, you will have improved confidence in how you look, and you won’t have to worry about adding synthetic implants into your body.
But before you make any decisions, it’s important to take a look at both natural and traditional breast augmentation to know which one is the best for you and your goals.
What Is Natural Breast Augmentation?
Natural breast augmentation is a procedure that uses fat grafting to give you improved breast volume and size.
This procedure is ideal for women looking to augment their breast size but do not want to have foreign objects (silicone implants or saline implants) inserted into their bodies.
Dr. Chiu will use liposuction to remove unwanted fat from a part of your body (either from the waist, abdomen, thighs, back, arms, or buttocks). This fat is then purified and strategically injected into the breast tissue.
The fat will attach itself to the tissue to give you natural-looking results that you can be proud of.
The Benefits of Natural Breast Augmentation
In addition to added volume and size of your breasts, natural breast augmentation has numerous benefits, including:
No Need for Explant Surgery
Breast implants generally last 10 to 20 years before needing to be replaced. However, since you are not having breast implants placed, you do not need to worry about changing them out.
No Risk of Implant Rupture
Because you do not have implants in your chest, you do not need to worry about any implant issues, such as rupturing or capsular contracture.
Additionally, because the fat being transferred is coming from your body, there is no need to worry about your body rejecting it.
Smaller Incisions Than Traditional Breast Augmentation
Traditional breast augmentation surgery requires incisions to place the implants. These incisions lead to breast augmentation scars, and while these scars will fade over time (and can be concealed with bras and bathing suits), they will still be present.
However, natural breast augmentation only requires incisions for the liposuction portion, and these incisions are very small. The fat is injected into the breast tissue through a needle, which will not create any noticeable scarring.
Because of the increased fat on the breast tissue, the size and volume of your breasts will be increased. This leads to improved cleavage that you will be able to show off in low-cut shirts and bikinis.
It is important to note that natural breast augmentation cannot increase breast size the way that implants can.
Breast implants have come a long way, and many silicone implants are able to replicate the look and feel of natural breast tissue. However, even the best implant cannot rival the feel of natural tissue, which is what you get with natural breast augmentation.
Because liposuction is used, you will have additional contouring to a portion of your body. So, in essence, you are having two procedures done: an increase in breast size and shape and a more trimmed and toned area of your body (waist, abdomen, thighs, back, arms, or buttocks).
What About Traditional Breast Augmentation Surgery?
When deciding between natural breast augmentation and traditional breast augmentation surgery, you need to ask yourself what it is you’re really looking for. While breast augmentation surgery is a more invasive procedure that includes incisions, scars, and a longer recovery time, the results are definitely more dramatic.
If you are looking for subtle, natural-looking results, then natural breast augmentation with fat grafting is the ideal choice. However, if you want to turn heads with dynamic results or you have a specific breast contour in mind, then breast implants may be best for you.
At your consultation, Dr. Chiu will help you decide which choice will best fit your desires.
