What Are the Downsides of Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a revolutionary procedure that uses your own body’s fat to enhance the breasts. This procedure produces far more natural looking and feeling results than saline or silicone implants. Additionally, this fat transfer augmentation has no risk of rejection or allergic reaction since the body’s own natural fat is being used.

You may be wondering if there are any downsides or risks to breast augmentation surgery. Actually, there are a few, but they are typically not on the serious side.

Downsides of Natural Breast Augmentation

One downside of fat transfer is that the results may not be instantaneous. This procedure does take some time for the full results to be seen. In fact, it can take up to six months to achieve the full effects.

Some recipients have reported that the breasts feel heavy right after the procedure. However, this heaviness will dissipate as the fat is absorbed into the body.

Another downside of this type of breast augmentation is that it may not be suitable for those who are looking for big increases in size. Generally, fat transfer can increase the bust size by one half to one cup size. Those who seek large sizes may need to consider implant surgery.

Finally, it may take more than one surgery to get the exact shape and size desired. And in the case of thinner women, weight gain may be needed to have donor fat for the augmentation.

The Augmentation Process

As we stated, during the procedure, fat will be removed via liposuction from a harvest site that has excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs. This harvested fat is then processed to separate the fat cells. These cells are then re-injected into the breasts at varying depths to produce natural looking results.

Because liposuction is used to harvest the fat, our breast augmentation in Phoenix, AZ provides two benefits: Not only will you receive larger, more shapely breasts, but you will see a smoother, more contoured look at the harvest site as well.
