Like many women, you’ve decided that you’d like to increase the size and enhance the shape of your breasts. Knowing you want breast enhancement is just the first step in the decision-making process. There are many decisions you’ll have to make when it comes to your individual procedure. Each augmentation is customized according to your specific concerns and goals.
While there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to the best type of augmentation, some women prefer one procedure over the other. Your breast enhancement specialist will walk you through the pros and cons of each at the time of your consultation. For now, let’s take a closer look at both procedures to help give you a better understanding about what’s right for you.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Many women choose fat transfer procedures if they’re looking for a subtle change with a natural look and feel. Typically fat transfer for breast augmentations can increase your bust size about 1-cup. Once injected into the breast, fat cells take on the roles of surrounding tissue for long-term results.
The procedure is essentially a 2-in-1 contouring treatment that also removes unwanted fat in another area on the body. However, the procedure is slightly more invasive than a traditional augmentation because the patient must also recover from liposuction. Furthermore, secondary procedures may be necessary to give you the results you want.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Breast implants give women a large variety of options when it comes to both size and shape. Women who are looking for a more dramatic change than what fat transfer can offer may benefit from a breast augmentation with implants. Implants typically last slightly longer than fat transfer procedures as well.
One disadvantage of having implants is that if a rupture occurs, you may need to undergo another procedure to remove and/or replace the implant. However, these days ruptures are far less common than they once were. At Sthetix, we use the highest quality implants available to ensure an optimal outcome with a lifetime guarantee against rupture.
What’s Right for You?
The best way to determine what’s right for you is through an in-person consultation with a breast enlargement specialist. Our medical team routinely performs both argumentations with fat grafting as well as implants. They’ll be able to assess your concerns and decide if you have enough harvestable fat to achieve your end-goals.
