Seattle Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgery
One of the main reasons that a patient elects to have plastic surgery is because they want to change a certain part of their body, whether they would like to minimize it or augment it. When augmenting the breast, patients have one of two options: they can have simple breast augmentation surgery that uses implants, or they can opt for a more natural type of breast augmentation. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer breast augmentation plastic surgery in Seattle so that all of our patients can look and feel their best.
While as a practice we do not recommend one type of breast augmentation over another, there are some benefits to having breast augmentation done via fat transfer. Firstly, your own fat is used for the procedure. Fat is taken from one area of the body and placed in the breast area. Fat is usually taken via liposuction from an area that has a wealth of fatty deposits, such as the abdomen or buttocks. Because this is your own fat, there is no introduction of artificial elements to the body, thereby educing risks. Skin incisions for this procedure are also relatively small, minimizing the look of any scarring. This procedure is also recommend for patients who want to revive breast tissue after a mastectomy or other related surgery.
Because liposuction is involved with this procedure, it is a 2-part surgery that does require some recovery time, and we do recommend full anesthesia with this procedure, although twilight sedation is available.
