Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation is a hot choice in plastic surgery, and a specialty of Dr. Grewal and Rockstar Beauty. The NaturalPlus Breast Augmentation℠ is Dr. Grewal’s trademark breast enhancement procedure. While a standard breast augmentation utilizes breast implants alone, the NaturalPlus Breast Augmentation uses fat extracted from the patients PLUS a breast implant to create a truly custom enhancement.
“The NaturalPlus Breast Augmentation uses the patient’s own fat cells to improve the results of their augmentation,” explains Dr. Grewal. “The transferred fat allows us to sculpt smoother transitions between the implant and breast tissue for a full, yet natural-looking result.”
Fat Transfer Can Improve Breast Augmentation Results
The breast implant is the basis of the tailored results achievable with the fat transfer in breast augmentation.
“For example, in a woman with thin skin, you may see the implant,” said Dr. Grewal. “Using her fat cells, we can layer fat around the implant for a fuller result that can also effectively hide the implant.”
The NaturalPlus Breast Augmentation method can also improve the appearance of cleavage. Working with the patient to find the right size and type of implant is vital to creating a good result, but even then a standard augmentation may not give us the upper pole volume we’d like to see. With a fat transfer and the implant, Dr. Grewal has found that “inserting fat helps create cleavage.”
Fat Transfer to Breasts
Fat transfer or micro fat grafting is a relatively straightforward procedure. Fat cells are extracted from the body via liposuction withSmartLipo®. (The most common sites for donor fat cells are the abdomen and thighs.) The tissue removed is purified and treated to improve its viability once transferred to the breasts. Not only can a fat transfer enhance the outcome of a breast augmentation, the use of liposuction can allow for advanced body sculpting to create a total body silhouette enhancement.
Variability of Breast Fat Transfer
The final volume after an autologous fat transfer, the technical term for transferring fat from one place on your body to another, is not perfectly predictable. As it is a natural substance and your body’s own fat, your body may reabsorb the transferred fat. As an example, 250cc of fat may be transferred to the breast, but after six months the net improvement may only be 175cc. In other cases the 250cc grafted in survive and thrive. Dr. Grewal feels the use of the breast implant provides a stable baseline result that can be tailored and improved with his fat transfer techniques.
