Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure performed to help improve the fullness, projection or symmetry of a woman’s breasts using silicone gel implants or in some cases, fat transfer..
There are various ways to help increaze the size and volume of breasts. Two of the most popular and widely-used methods are via breast implants and lipofilling using your own fats.
Approaches on augmentation mammoplasty include armpit incision, areola incision, and infra-mammary incision. Each of these has its own pros and cons. The most important thing is to select an appropriate surgery method according to personal circumstances, and not be fixated on one particular surgery method. For example, young women generally prefer the armpit incision while entertainers or models, dancers, etc. often prefer the areola incision and infra-mammary incision. Those with drooping breasts or a deformed thoracic or those undergoing revision surgery may also need to choose the areola incision or infra-mammary incision.
Our specialists will only recommend suitable methods based on their own medical experience.
Free fat grafting is a surgical procedure where fat from another part of the body is injected or grafted onto areas requiring volume enhancement. Fat grafting is commonly used in place of traditional implants.
Free fat grafting usually involves extracting fat from one part of the body, washing and purifying it, and then carefully re-implanting it into the breast. Any swelling or bruising should generally subside in 2 to 3 weeks.
The fat is usually extracted from an abdominal region, or from the thigh under the hip for a lean person. Depending on the person's body frame, different amounts of fat are required to achieve desired results. The addition of 200cc to the chest of a lean-looking woman makes a significant difference while the same 200cc added to the chest of a heavier-framed woman is barely noticeable.
After surgery, the grafting adds volume and contours for a more feminine silhouette.
