Is breast lipofilling right for you?
Small breasts - small enhancement
A lipofilling breast enhancement is mainly used in patients that desire a small breast enhancement with a natural result. If you prefer a natural filler instead of an artificial implant then lipofilling offers you the perfect solution.
If the breasts are clearly asymmetrical then lipofilling - adding volume - can achieve the right balance.
The added benefit of a simultaneous liposuction
This is preferably harvested from the abdomen, the legs or the hips. The plastic surgeon will determine precisely how many ccs can be harvested during your consultation.
How it is done
The fat cells are harvested from an area where there is adequate fat in your body. You can discuss our preferred area with Dr Wessam in the preoperative consultation.
The harvested fat cells are process through extraction of excess fluid and acquiring the desired cells.
The chosen amount is then inserted, through ten or so fine channels under the skin using a fat grafting cannula.
Post operative care
After your surgery you will need to rest for several days and avoid lifting anything. You will wear a special compression bra while you are recovering.
