The first thing that comes to mind when one thinks about breast augmentation is surgery, implants, and the resulting pain and scars. This is because many people are not aware of the alternative treatments which are more natural and safe. Fat grafting or fat transfer is one such natural procedure with minimum risk of failure suitable for small breast augmentation.
What is Lipomodelling?
Lipomodelling, also called fat grafting, is a process through which fat cells are harvested from one part of the body and are transferred to other parts. Ordinarily, this procedure is adopted in breast augmentation procedures. Fat is harvested via liposuction or contouring, from fat excess parts like abdomen, thighs, upper arms, or back.
The harvested fat is purified by removing blood and oils in a sterile environment and strategically injected into the tissues of the breast, changing its shape and size and giving it upper pole fullness.
Is this procedure suitable for everyone?
Fat grafting can give only moderate augmentation, unlike breast implantation, which helps change bra size. It is suitable for people who want only slight improvement in the size of their breasts. Women with uneven breasts who feel uneasy with the gap formed in the bra and those who have breasts deformed with depressions are suitable candidates for this procedure.
Fat grafting for saggy breasts
New mothers, who often have issues with saggy breasts because of breastfeeding, can get back their breasts into shape with fat grafting. Fat grafting along with a breast lift is the most suitable surgery that can work wonders by providing it with the required lift and padding.
How long does it take to recover?
The recovery process is reasonably smooth except for a slight burning sensation in the liposuction area and mild soreness in the breasts. Post-operative care is rather simple, with taking one to two days of bed rest and getting back to work on the third day.
