Composite Breast Augmentation for Natural Looking Results

There is hardly any doubt about the popularity of breast augmentation surgery. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it is the most requested cosmetic surgical procedure and 290,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed in 2013, 1% up from 2012.

Typically, plastic surgeons help women achieve their ideal breast size and shape using two techniques – breast implant surgery and fat transfer, which involves removing fat from one area of the body and injecting it into the breasts. While not all women have autologous fat to spare, results were less than optimal in the case of implants because the overlying fat tissues could not cover the implants properly.

To resolve these issues and provide a more natural looking and satisfactory outcome, plastic surgeons have come out a new breast enhancement technique – composite breast augmentation. This innovative method combines implants with fat transfer to achieve optimal results.

This novel breast enhancement procedure is available in leading plastic surgery practices. The plastic surgeon would use proven breast implants such as FDA-approved saline, silicone or gummy bear implants to provide the core volume projection. Fat transfer is then performed: excess fat is removed from a specific area via liposuction, processed and purified, and transplanted in the subcutaneous space of the breasts to improve the outcome.

Advanced 3-D imaging is what makes this novel approach so effective. For instance, take the advanced Axis Three scanner. It allows the surgeon as well as the patient to view the likely outcome of the breast enhancement procedure by providing anatomically-accurate, 3D images of the breasts. This allows the surgeon to evaluate the end results and estimate the optimal quantity of fat required for breast augmentation and breast reconstruction following mastectomy. It also enhances patient confidence.

In addition to providing a natural looking outcome, the composite augmentation technique

  • Improves existing breast implants
  • Corrects breast implant issues
  • Enhances overall symmetry
  • Helps resolve tuberous breasts

The treatment process is simple and only takes a few steps for completion and the candidates can benefit from multiple benefits with just one single procedure.
