Year after year, breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Denver. Whether you’re hoping for a dramatic boost in cup size or a subtle breast enhancement,* breast enlargement can be performed using fat transfer, breast implants or both. Whatever size or type of implant you choose, you may be surprised by why your plastic surgeon may suggest fat transfer as well.
A Breast Implant Alternative
Some women want to increase their breast size but don’t want to get breast implants for one reason or another. For these women, fat transfer breast augmentation provides an alternative to breast implants. During this procedure, fat is removed from one part of the body and injected into the breasts to increase breast volume.
The Limitations of Fat Transfer Augmentation
On the other hand, there are limits to enlarging the breasts using only fat transfer. Very thin women may not be good candidates, as they may not have an adequate supply of excess fat available for transfer. There is also a limit to how much size increase can be achieved with fat transfer, making this a better option for women seeking a subtle enhancement than a dramatic boost.*
