March 7, 2012 – In a past post we discussed fat transfer as a breast augmentation technique, especially for cancer victims. There is a new method of breast augmentation that incorporates pre-operative breast tissue expansion with fat transfer.

The new method was detailed in the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and highlighted in ScienceDaily. Unlike other forms of breast augmentation, this method of breast enhancement involves the patient wearing a medical bra that produces a small amount of air suction that slowly expands the existing breast tissue and skin over a few weeks prior to surgery. This creates more room in the breast for the fat transfer.

The report states that the actual fat transfer surgery only takes about two hours and the breast size is usually double what it was before and the shape and feel is very natural. The medical bra is often worn for a few weeks after the surgery. The vacuum effect helps to support the breast during healing.

If this type of breast enhancement sounds appealing to you, find a board certified cosmetic surgeon in your area and consult with him or her about this new breast augmentation technique.
