Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Dr. Campanile offers fat transfer breast augmentation, also known as microfat grafting. Fat transfer breast augmentation may be a good fit for women who would like a subtle boost to their breast volume through the use of their own natural fat cells instead of implants. Fat transfer can also fine-tune breast implant results by softening curves, enhancing cleavage or improving symmetry.
There are two steps to fat transfer breast augmentation. Dr. Campanile first performs liposuction to gather fat cells. Many women tend to store excess fat around the hips, which makes this part of the body an excellent location to harvest healthy fat cells, with the added bonus of a mild slimming effect. Women who prefer to have a different region of the body used as a donor area can discuss their options with Dr. Campanile.
Once the necessary fat has been gathered, Dr. Campanile transfers the fat to the breasts through several small injections to create smooth, subtle contours. Women who desire a more pronounced augmentation can schedule an additional fat transfer procedure as soon as 6 months following the initial surgery. Because fat transfer breast augmentation requires the use of your own fat cells, very thin women may see better results from breast enlargement using saline or silicone breast implants.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Breast augmentation is most commonly performed with the help of saline or silicone gel breast implants. To begin, Dr. Campanile makes an incision in the fold of the breast where it meets the chest wall (inframammary) or around each areola (periareolar). Through the incision, he creates a pocket for the implant and then positions the implant inside the breast. Breast implants may be placed be under the chest muscle or directly behind the breast tissue, depending on implant size and type and your preferences and body shape.
When the implants are securely in place, the incisions are closed and bandaged, and you’ll be moved to the postoperative area to begin your recovery. In most cases, breast augmentation with implants takes just 1 to 2 hours.
“Gummy Bear” Implants
Dr. Campanile is pleased to offer the Allergan Natrelle 410 silicone gel breast implant, commonly known as the “gummy bear” implant because of the silicone gel’s consistency. This implant is designed to resemble the teardrop shape of a natural breast, with more silicone at the base of the breast and a gentle slope toward the top.
Gummy bear breast implants are available in addition to an array of other silicone gel models and saline breast implants. We are committed to offering the latest implant types for a wide selection of choices. Dr. Campanile will talk with you about your individual goals and help you decide on the implant that’s the best match for you.
Combined Augmentation and Lift
A popular option for many women is to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift. This combined procedure can create a more youthful look, particularly if your breasts have begun to sag following childbirth, weight loss or just due to a combination of gravity and time.
Dr. Campanile can use the same incisions he creates for the breast lift to insert breast implants, minimizing the appearance of scars after surgery. Another benefit of combining these procedures is only having one recovery period. Women who opt for fat transfer breast augmentation may also choose to combine their augmentation with a breast lift to achieve the most flattering profile.
The Best Results for You
The best breast augmentation results are seen when the procedure is tailored to each woman’s figure and cosmetic goals. For some, this may mean enhancing both size and shape of the breast, while others may combine breast enlargement with additional procedures as part of a mommy makeover.
If you’re unhappy with the results of a previously performed breast enhancement, breast revision surgery can help achieve the look you originally hoped for.
