One benefit that makes most women choose this method over the traditional implant is that they will be fixing two problem areas. Not only will she be getting her breasts enlarged, she will also have fat removed from other problem areas. Because you are using fat that comes from the woman's own body, she does not have to worry about having a foreign object implanted. With a traditional breast implant, there is the risk of rupture, leaking, or shifting. Because this procedure does not offer a much bigger change, many doctors offer this procedure to women who have had a lumpectomy. It is also recommended for women who have one breast smaller than the other.
While some may consider the slight difference in size a benefit, some may see it as a downside. If a woman is looking for a large increase in cup size, this is not the procedure for her. While the difference is noticeable, it is not for those looking for a big difference. Another downside to this technique is that you have to worry about the risks of liposuction as well. Liposuction can cause the skin to scar, bruise or sag. When having traditional implants put in, liposuction is not an issue.
After the procedure, a woman can expect her breasts to have a soft, natural shape, a bit larger than what she had before the procedure. It is important to know however, that since it is fat that being transferred, over time it will be reabsorbed into the body. This will cause the breast size to decrease in size over time. When this happens, it is also possible for the breast to look uneven when the fat is absorbed. When this happens, it is necessary to have the procedure done again. Many clinics can take extra fat during the first procedure. If this is done, the woman will only have to have the fat implanted the second time and no liposuction will be required.
As with any cosmetic surgical procedure, it is wise to get a consultation from a qualified specialist to see if you are a candidate and to get all the facts before deciding what technique would be best for you.
