Natural Breast Augmentation
If you want fuller breast without an implant, than natural fat transfer breast augmentation may be your solution! Many women have stubborn areas of fat that won’t disappear, no matter how much they diet and exercise. Have you ever wanted to shift some of that fat from your belly, muffin tops or thighs to areas where you’d like to see a little extra volume, like your breasts? Many women have dreamed of this and now they can with Natural Breast Augmentation. Now, with newer fat harvesting and fat grafting technologies, we can do this and naturally enhance the shape and size of your breasts with your own fat.
Performed while you’re awake, Natural Breast Augmentation is a combination of LipoSculpture and Fat Harvesting for Fat Grafting. The LipoSculpture will gently suction and remove areas of unwanted fat to help contour and slim the body. Natural Fat Harvesting processes those removed fat cells so that they may be re-injected into your breasts using the latest Fat Grafting techniques. For women who desire a mild to moderate enhancement of their breasts by using their own natural fat, it is an ideal alternative to augmentation by using implants.

Natural Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer FAQ’s
How is the Natural Breast Augmentation procedure performed?
Natural Breast Augmentation is accomplished through fat transfer, a surgical procedure that can also be used for Natural Buttocks Augmentation. Fat transfer involves two separate procedures within the same surgery. First, the fat is gently harvested from various areas of your body using the BodyJet, an advanced water assisted liposuction technique. The fat is processed and then re-injected into the breasts using special tubes called cannulas. The entire procedure is done while you’re awake using mild sedation and tumescent fluid for adequate numbing of the areas treated.
What is the post-operative period like?
After the procedure is performed, you must where a breast support for several weeks. In addition, you will not be able to sleep on your breasts for this may cause excess pressure on the fat and could reduce survival. The area will be swollen, bruised and tender, but these changes all go away. Most people resume normal activities within a few days after the procedure. You will be given complete post-operative instructions at your pre-operative visit with Dr. Serrão.
Is this procedure approved or is it controversial?
Many surgeons remember the poor results that used to occur in the past when fat transfer was used. We now have improved techniques and technologies that help maintain the survival of the fat. Thus, better survival of the fat results in longer results. One such technology is the BodyJet LipoSculpture technique that harvests the fat in a more gentle fashion. Recent clinical studies have shown up to 85% fat cell survival rate from natural fat harvesting with BodyJet Water-Liposuction technique.
Will the Fat Transfer survive?
Using newer technologies, most of the fat does survive. Many times one sees 60% to 85% fat survival. However, some women may need second or third procedures of fat transfer to continue to restore adequate volume within the breasts.
Does the fat grafted result in abnormal calcifications noted on Mammography?
Fat transferred to the breasts can result in the formation of calcifications within the breasts, which can cause interference with mammograms. However, newer studies have proven that newer digital mammograms can easily evaluate calcifications in the breast. Dr. Serrão recommends that his patients have a baseline digital mammogram before surgery.
How is Natural Breast Augmentation different from artificial Implants?
Unlike artificial implants, natural fat allows more flexibility to shape and contour exactly the way you want, leading to more personalized, natural-looking results. Many patients like the idea of using their own natural fat instead of introducing foreign materials into the body since there’s a lower risk of infection or other complications. And of course, with Natural Breast Augmentation, you’ll be able to take advantage of outstanding body sculpting in the donor areas.
What type of results can you expect from Natural Breast Augmentation?
A skilled cosmetic surgeon, such as Dr. Serrão, will be able to give you fuller and more shapely breasts using this procedure. Most women can expect breast growth that is equivalent to a half or full cup size and many women describe their breasts to appear as if they were in a “push-up bra.”
Can I have this procedure If I already have Implants?
Women who are dissatisfied with the shape of their breasts can benefit from natural breast augmentation, even if they have previously undergone a breast implant procedure. Fat transfer can be used to smooth the appearance of silicone implants, especially the rippling and wrinkling that can occur around the edges of the implant. In cases where the implants have a hard look, natural breast augmentation can be used to soften the appearance of the breasts. In some instances, the implants may be removed and a Natural Breast Augmentation is performed. Dr. Serrão will discuss all of the options and concerns with you during your consultation to see if you would be a candidate for fat transfer with implants.
Can I do Natural Breast Augmentation even if I don’t have much fat?
You must have an adequate amount of fat on your body for the fat harvesting technique. Dr. Serrão can usually find enough fat in most people, but only a consultation with him will allow you to know if you are a candidate. In rare instances, he may suggest that you gain a few pounds for adequate fat harvesting and Natural Breast Augmentation.
What is the cost of Natural Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer?
The Natural Breast Augmentation procedure will cost more than regular breast implants because of the additional liposuction surgery and fat harvesting procedures. The cost of any procedure varies from patient to patient dependent on the type of surgery that is performed. All of our fees will be discussed with you during your consultation.
