At Advanced Liposuction Center, we often hear that women are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts. It’s normal to lose volume and experience sagging of the breasts after breast feeding or with the body’s aging process. Our Cranberry Township plastic surgeons want clients to know that breast augmentation is a safe and natural way to improve the appearance of your breasts.
Below are some frequently asked questions about breast augmentation:
Is there a way to enlarge my breasts without using artificial silicone or saline implants?
With our fat transfer procedure, you can use your own fat. This allows the richest part of stem cells to be reintroduced naturally into areas like your breasts to add fullness and volume. As an added bonus, you get to remove hard-to-lose fat from an area that you think has too much. Since you are using your own tissue, there is no chance of reaction or rejection. Your breast augmentation will look completely natural and be permanent.
How many cup sizes can I increase using the fat transfer procedure?
Usually cup size can be increased by one to two sizes using this technique. If you wish to go larger than that, an additional surgery would likely be necessary.
Will I be able to have mammograms following the breast augmentation?
Unlike implants, a breast enlargement done with a fat transfer will not interfere with future mammograms.
Where is this treatment performed?
Breast augmentation can be done in our newly renovated medical facility in Cranberry Township. The surgery will take several hours, and patients will need a driver to take them home.
What kind of recovery can I expect after breast augmentation?
The recovery is generally quick and easy with only about 48 hours of downtime. You will need someone with you for at least the first 24 hours post-surgery. It’s not unusual to feel tired and a bit sore for the first two weeks, and some bruising may last up to three weeks. You can resume light exercise after two weeks but avoid lifting weights and any upper body activities for at least three weeks.
