Cosmetic Trend: Fat Grafting, Particularly Fat Transfer to the Breasts Booms
70% of US plastic surgeons have used fat grafting techniques for breast operations, according to the latest report published in the official journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). It is currently more commonly used in breast reconstruction procedures rather than cosmetic breast surgery but the popularity of the procedure for both medical and cosmetic reasons is rising quickly. The report was led by ASPS Member Surgeon Dr. J. Peter Rubin of University of Pittsburgh and Russell Kling.
Fat Transfer procedures extract fat from unwanted body fat areas through liposuction. The Private Clinic use minimally invasive VASER Lipo to carefully extract the fat while maintaining the fat cell viability. Once the fat has been extracted it is refined and injected into the breasts for augmentation and reshaping. A degree of over-plumping is employed as some of the fat cells are reabsorbed into the body. The success of the procedure is largely down to the precision and experience of the doctor or surgeon performing the procedure. It is always important to ask for some hard facts and before and after shots before going ahead
