With the introduction of new fat grafting and internal lift techniques, it is now possible to accomplish scarless or minimal scar breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, and even breast lift and tummy tuck procedures.
Scarless Breast Augmentation
With modern techniques of fat grafting, particularly in combination with the BRAVA® device, we are now able to provide moderate breast enlargement for women who wish to avoid breast implants. Fat grafting is also an excellent option for women who wish to have their implants removed, or women who have experienced complications with breast implants. Fat grafting can also be combined with breast implants to obtain improved breast shape and symmetry, improve cleavage and cover implant rippling.
Fat grafting is essentially a scarless procedure as only small needle punctures are used both for the body contouring liposuction as well as the fat transfer to the breasts.
Scarless Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Women with a moderate amounts of breast sag, may be excellent candidates for scarless breast lift procedures. These procedures may combine fat grafting to add volume with internal reshaping and suspension procedures that are also performed with minimal or no scarring.
Scarless Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction after breast cancer or breast implant complications, can now be accomplished predictably with fat grafting, and internal tissue suspension and shaping techniques. These procedures also frequently incorporate the BRAVA® tissue regeneration device, for the best and most predictable results.
For staged procedures it may also be possible to use your own fat that has been cryopreserved in our FDA registered Liquid Goldtm Lipobank to make these staged procedures even simpler.
Scarless Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
An additional benefit of some of these scarless breast techniques may be increased tightening of the upper abdominal skin as well as the skin of the side of the chest as the breast tissues are lifted, shaped and tightened.
Benefits of all these procedures is that your own fat is the most natural way to restore a breast. They are performed as 100% outpatient procedures, provide additional body contouring liposuction and tightening, and are performed without any significant additional scarring, using only needle sized instruments for both liposuction and fat transfer.
