What is Natural Breast Augmentation? 

Fat Grafting

Natural breast augmentation, also known as fat transfer breast augmentation, is a procedure that utilizes fat grafting to enlarge the size of the breasts. Fat grafting involves removing excess fat from one area of the body (donor site) and then transferring that fat to another area—in this case, transferring that fat to the breasts.

Understanding the Fat Transfer Procedure

During the procedure, liposuction is used to remove the excess fat from the donor sites. Multiple donor sites may be used, including the abdomen, flanks (sides of the body between the ribs and hips), arms, legs, and back. The fat is purified and then carefully placed in the breasts through small incisions at the fold of each breast and the border of the areolas.

Benefits of a Natural Breast Augmentation

The biggest benefit of fat transfer breast augmentation is that it is completely natural. No implants are needed for this procedure, although fat transfer breast augmentation can be combined with implants if a patient wishes. 

Roughly 50 percent of the transferred fat will take to the breasts, and whatever volume remains will likely be permanent. 

Another great benefit of natural breast augmentation is that you are removing excess fat from areas of your body where it is unwanted. So, not only are you achieving a larger breast size, but you are also slimming other areas of your body.

Are You a Good Candidate for Natural Breast Augmentation? 

At Town and Country Plastic Surgeons, most people are candidates for natural breast augmentation, even if they are on the thinner side. Our doctors can gather enough fat from multiple donor sites on the body to be transferred to the breasts. 

People who don’t want implants or are ready to remove their implants can be great candidates for a fat transfer breast augmentation. On the flip side, people who have implants and wish to enhance their breast size further can also get a natural breast augmentation in addition to what they already have. Women over the age of 40 need to have a normal mammogram.

Overall, the best candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation are people who want to have natural results.

Natural Breast Augmentation Results 

People who undergo this procedure can expect a one-half to one-cup increase in size. The final breast size varies from patient to patient because it depends on the volume removed from the donor sites and the amount of fat the breasts accept. Usually, around 50 percent of the fat successfully transfers to the breasts. 

How Long Does Natural Breast Augmentation Last? 

The final volume that the breasts take is highly likely to last permanently. Those who are satisfied with this size may enjoy their new breasts and rest easy, knowing that no routine monitoring is needed after the procedure. If you desire more than a one-cup size increase, you can have an additional fat grafting session at least six months after the initial natural breast augmentation.
