Breast Augmentation: Fat Transfer vs. Implants

There are two ways to increase breast size: fat transfer to breasts or breast implants. Both offer their own particular benefits. The ultimate decision typically comes down to a patient’s personal preferences.

Fat Transfer to Breasts

A fat transfer begins with liposuction in Santa Ana to obtain the necessary fat. Areas most commonly targeted for fat extraction include the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. Once removed, the fat is purified and then strategically injected into the breasts. Because the fat comes from the patient, there may be a lower risk of developing certain complications and the results are going to feel very natural. On the downside, the procedure is only able to increase the breasts’ volume by a single cup size.

Breast Implants

Implants are made from either saline or silicone and offer patients the greatest amount of flexibility in terms of obtaining the strong bustline they are often hoping for. The choice between saline and silicone is another area where a patient’s specific situation and preferences may come into play. Either way, using implants for breast augmentation is one of the oldest and most time-test of all plastic surgeries. While all surgery carries some amount of risk, it is extremely safe and reliable.
