Tacoma Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgery
Patients elect to get plastic surgery for a lot of different reasons. One of the most common ones is to minimize or augment a part of their body that they feel needs improvement. Breast augmentation is one of the most common and well-known plastic surgeries out there, but patients may not know that they have options beyond artificial implants. While implants are safer than ever in recent years, some patients want a more natural approach. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer breast augmentation plastic surgery in Tacoma so our patients have more options when they want to look and feel their best.
As opposed to artificial implants, fat transfer breast augmentation takes fat from one area of the body and places it in another. It is most often from an area of the body that can afford to lose some fatty deposits, such as the abdomen or buttocks. The removal of the fat is done through a liposuction procedure, and then fat is grafted and transferred onto the breast area, instead of using implants. This type of procedure requires smaller incisions than regular breast augmentation, and has less potential for scarring. This procedure is also terrific for women who are post-operative after a mastectomy.
Because this is a 2-part procedure, there is some recovery time involved, but our patients feel it is well worth it. This procedure also requires anesthesia, and after a consultation with Dr. Zemplenyi, you can decide whether full anesthesia or twilight sedation is best. Both are available in the Bel-Red offices.
