Fat injections are fast becoming the natural alternative to implants.
Sometimes called lipomodeling, breast augmentation with fat began in the 1980s. Initially, there was concern that this procedure would produce confusing mammogram changes & potentially conceal cancers. These worries have not proven to be a real problem. Modern breast imaging techniques have no problem distinguishing fat from cancer.
Versatility is the hallmark of fat transplantation. It can be injected anywhere on breast to achieve contours impossible with conventional implants. It is frequently used around existing implants or after breast lift (mastopexy) procedures to enhance upper pole fullness and to treat rippling or visible implant edges.
Excess breast weight and size which causes back and shoulder pain or which is simply not desired can be reduced effectively without scars.
The procedure is tailored to give uneven enlarged breasts a more symmetric appearance. In contrast to traditional procedures, breast liposuction preserves blood vessels and nerves completely. In turn, troublesome complications of traditional breast reduction surgery such as numbness and nipple necrosis are greatly reduced.
