Tampa Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Many women opt to have a fat transfer breast augmentation surgery done, either because they dislike the appearance of their natural breasts, or they want to rejuvenate their breasts after having been through pregnancy or experiencing changes caused by the natural aging process. Breasts that look like they are sagging or droopy may cause women to lose their sense of femininity and feel insecure about their appearance.
On the other hand, some women who have had a mastectomy in the past often undergo this procedure to reclaim their lost breasts. What ever the case may be, the fat transfer breast augmentation is a safe and effective procedure for women who want to enhance the shape and size of their breasts.
The Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Procedure
There are women who don’t like the idea of breast implants for a number of valid reasons. Yet, they want larger breasts through breast augmentation. A very natural and popular procedure is to have autologous breast augmentation. This procedure is a great alternative for women who want to enhance their breast size, but don’t like the idea of inserting implants into their bodies.
Some women dislike the idea of introducing foreign material into their bodies. While implants can help provide excellent benefits, there are some disadvantages, such as rupturing and obtaining a look that appears less than natural
Breast augmentation using the fat transfer technique, however, makes use of the patient’s own fat from another area of the body. During the procedure, fat from the patient’s abdominal area, thighs or buttocks is removed by way of liposuction. The fatty tissue is separated and purified by placing it in a centrifuge.
Once the pure fat is prepped, it can be injected into the patient’s breasts. Here, fatty tissue is made into a liquid and injectable form. The surgery uses tumescent anesthesia and IV sedation and is less invasive than positioning implants. A woman can augment her breast size to half a cup to one cup higher with this natural breast-enhancing technique. It takes time for the fat to establish circulation and survive so patient still see results one year out. Unfortunately, the fat is unpredictable, and the results vary among individuals depending on age, health, and unknown factors.
Recovery From Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Because of the use of local tumescent anesthesia and IV sedation recovery is fast and going back to work is also quicker than if general anesthesia is used. There may be swelling around where liposuction has taken place, and the patient may be asked to wear gauze bandages. Drains may also be placed for draining excess fluid as well. Too much leaning forward and heavy-duty work has to be avoided for a week or so.
