Natural Breast Augmentation: Avoid Surgery, Get Bigger Breasts

Natural Breast Augmentation: Avoid Surgery, Get Bigger Breasts

If you’re like most women, you’ve probably considered having breast augmentation surgery. While many women think about having the procedure, fewer than 10 percent of women go under the knife. So, what makes the other 90 percent not choose surgery? Many of these women cite reasons like wanting to avoid pain and scarring from the procedure. Others say they do not want the long period of downtime during recovery. So, what is the solution for women who want to augment their breasts but don't want to have surgery? Natural breast augmentation offered by Innovations Medical.

What Is the Natural Breast Augmentation Procedure?
During the natural breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Johnson takes fat from another area of the patient, like the thigh or abdomen, through liposuction and injects it into the breasts. Patients stay awake throughout the procedure and are numbed in the treatment area with tumescent fluid. The fat fills out the breast, increasing it in size. Fat transfers also help give the breasts some lift because they induce the body to produce more collagen, which tightens the skin.

Many Myths About Fat Transfer

Many Myths About Fat Transfer

Have you considered having a fat transfer procedure, but have questions or concerns about the procedure or results? There are many myths and misunderstandings out there about fat transfer, or fat grafting, procedures. Dr. Johnson often fields questions and concerns about fat and the fat transfer procedure during patient consultations. Here we tackle some of the most frequently heard myths about fat and fat transfer:

Myth 1. Fat doesn’t last. One commonly heard myth about fat transfer is that results do not last. This can definitely make some would-be patients balk at having the procedure done, but fortunately, it’s just not true. Fat transfers performed at Innovations Medical provide patients with long-lasting results. The technique used by Dr. Johnson minimizes fat handling, which increases the survival rate of cells. Patients who choose fat transfer typically only need to have the procedure once. Additionally, because fat transfer uses your own fat, there is no chance of rejection, which would cause results to be diminished.

Myth 2. Fat causes lumps. Critics of fat transfers often claim that fat causes lumps to form at the injection site. If the procedure is performed by a well-trained cosmetic physician, like Dr. Johnson, the procedure does not produce lumps. Trained cosmetic physicians understand exactly how and where to inject transplanted fat to ensure smooth results.

Get Familiar With FAMI

Get Familiar With FAMI

Have you heard of FAMI? It stands for Fat Autograft Muscular Injection. That probably just left you with another question. Like what exactly is Fat Autograft Muscular Injection? FAMI is a fat transfer procedure that uses fat taken from another part of your body to use in your face. Dr. Johnson performs this type of fat transfer on patients who are looking to regain a youthful visage and reverse signs of aging.

As we age, so does our face. Skin quality diminishes. Collagen and elastin decrease. We begin to form wrinkles and sag. The facial fat volume also decreases. Loss of facial fat makes us look older. Think of the youthful appearance of children, aka "baby face" - it’s because they have a lot of facial fat. Our facial fat volume peaks between eighteen to twenty years old and then begins to gradually decrease.

FAMI gives patients a more youthful appearance by filling out the volume that is lost as part of the aging process. FAMI takes fat from another site on the body, refines it, and injects it into the face to replace that missing volume. Collection sites include the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks and fat is harvested through a liposuction. The procedure is minimally invasive, outpatient, and performed in the office. Patients are awake throughout the fat collection and also through injection. Some patients report swelling and bruising after the procedure, but most patients have a quick recovery and are back to their normal routine in about a week.
