Natural Breast Augmentation

Natural breast augmentation and enhancement with implants are procedures that many women seek to obtain what they consider beautiful breasts. It is routinely in the top five of all cosmetic surgery procedures year after year.

In fact, for 2020, breast augmentation was so highly requested as a cosmetic procedure that according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, almost 200,000 women had breast augmentation. However, looking at the year before in 2019, it was closer to 300,000. The reason the number of breast augmentations went down in 2020 was most likely due to the Covid-19 pandemic where surgeons had to close their offices for months.

As things are getting back to normal, we expect breast augmentations to grow in 2021 from the number of women waiting. Are you one of the many women considering enhancing your body with cosmetic surgery procedures?

You may want breast enlargement for a variety of reasons:

  1. Even out breasts that aren’t the same size
  2. Modestly increase the size of small breasts
  3. The desire to have large breasts
  4. To regain lost fullness and volume after childbirth

If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, it is an option for 1 and 2 above. It’s a more natural procedure that doesn’t use implants called autologous breast augmentation or natural breast augmentation. In this case, the surgeon uses the body’s unwanted fat to enhance the breast area shape and size, approximately one cup size.

Fat injection into the breasts works best as part of a VASER high-definition liposuction procedure. The surgeon “relocates” unwanted fat cells from areas of the body and moves the fat for a natural breast augmentation. Sometimes you’ll hear this procedure referred to as fat transfer, fat grafting or fat injections.

Most women’s breasts are slightly different in size and shape, and with fat transfer, a talented surgeon can even out those differences. Overall, it’s a phenomenal way to achieve modest additional breast volume and give you the ideal shape you desire.

Let’s look at more details about how natural breast augmentation works and if it’s a cosmetic procedure that’s right for you.

The Benefits of Natural Breast Augmentation

One of the most significant benefits of having a natural breast augmentation over a traditional one is there are no implants. Some women are uncomfortable with having pieces of synthetic material inside their bodies. Other women are not trying to go “big” and would rather have a more subtle, but flattering, bustline.

There is a smaller chance of rejection or infection when using one’s body fat. In addition, since there is no incision, like with implants, the risk of infection is lower. It also eliminates the risk of implant drooping as the years pass and necessitating additional surgeries to correct the issue.

Another benefit to a natural breast augmentation with fat transfer is that there isn’t any scarring. The injections are done using needles only. It’s a more straightforward procedure than implants. With natural breast augmentation, the recovery time is reduced and is more manageable for busy lifestyles.

With natural breast augmentation, the results can be more subtle. Not everyone who undergoes breast augmentation wants to increase multiple cup sizes. The best candidates for natural breast augmentation are looking at a single cup size.

Natural Breast Augmentation Candidates

The best candidates for natural breast augmentation are those with smaller breasts or women who only want a cup size increase.

Other good candidates have gone through pregnancy and suffer from post-breast-feeding volume loss or women with significant weight loss. A woman may need a breast lift to prevent the “orange in a sock” look in these cases. With larger implants, a breast lift is almost inevitable.

As we age, it’s natural to lose volume in the breast area. Natural breast augmentation can replace a minor loss of volume so that the breasts are fuller and perky.

Another candidate for natural breast augmentation is someone with asymmetrical breasts. This condition is more common than you may think. As many as one in four women have an issue with uneven breasts. Natural breast augmentation makes it possible for a skilled surgeon to create an identical shape for both breasts.

It is a solution, especially for older women, who want to feel more confident or look more shapely under clothing and in swimwear.

Being in good health, no longer breastfeeding (and no plan to in the future), and no smoking are recommended for best results with any cosmetic breast surgery procedure.

How VASER Works with Natural Breast Augmentation

If you schedule VASER high-definition liposuction, you can also have natural breast augmentation at that time. The way that VASER lipo works is by using ultrasonic energy to liquefy unwanted fat cells. As excess, healthy fat is removed, it’s purified and re-injected into your breasts.

The most common areas of the body to take fat from during a VASER treatment are:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles, waist area
  • Thighs, inner and outer
  • Hips and hip dips
  • Back
  • Underarm area
  • Face

You know that ugly area of excess fat sometimes referred to as “bra fat?” That’s fat can be moved around the front to enhance your figure, giving you the ideal breast size and shape you want. How amazing is that?

The Recovery

The initial recovery time of a natural breast augmentation with fat transfer or grafting is one to three days. The total healing time can take about a month. You may have some swelling, redness, or minor discomfort that will go away after a week. The doctor will recommend some over-the-counter pain medication to take. If more extensive cosmetic procedures are done simultaneously, the doctor may have you take something more potent for the first few days.

You may also need to wear some support or compression garments to encourage circulation, stabilize new fat, and promote the proper healing of the area. After a couple of weeks, you should be able to do all your normal activities again. The healing time is faster with fat grafting augmentation than with traditional implants.

Keep in mind that it may take up to three to six months for the breasts to fully settle into their new shape. In part, it’s because it’s not uncommon for a bit of the fat to reabsorb into the body, but a skilled cosmetic surgeon will consider that effect when they performed the fat transfer for the natural breast augmentation.

A Huge Confidence Booster

Women report having a boost in their confidence and energized self-esteem that comes from having breasts they love. So isn’t it about time you have beautifully shaped breasts that make you feel gorgeous? Natural breast augmentation might be the perfect option for your body and lifestyle.

How Long Does Natural Breast Augmentation Last

Do you wonder if natural breast augmentation is a permanent procedure? That’s the question that women ask most often. Typically, about 70-80 percent of the fat will survive long-term.

Overall, the results of a fat transfer augmentation are permanent. However, the appearance of your new breasts is subject to change if you gain or lose a considerable amount of weight. Ideally, you’re at or near your goal weight when you have natural breast augmentation.

A Moderate Increase in Breast Size

The bottom line is if you want a moderate, natural-looking increase in your breast size, it might be time to consider what natural breast augmentation can do for your figure.
