Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation with the BRAVA System

Published on December 2, 2016 by

A breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, encompasses a series of procedures that are conducted to increase the size and projection of a woman’s breasts. Typically, these procedures use either implants or fatty tissue to achieve the desired results.

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that can improve the size and aesthetics of the breasts. Breast augmentation can also be used to restore volume that was lost due to pregnancy or severe weight loss. It helps increase the fullness of the breasts and can make them more aesthetically pleasing.

Having breasts that are more symmetrical and proportionate to the body can help improve a woman’s figure and can increase self-confidence in women who are insecure about their bodies.

How Does Fat Transfer Help with Breast Augmentation?

A fat transfer breast augmentation is used to augment the breasts using fat tissue harvested from other parts of the your body, including the belly, thighs, or buttocks, through liposuction. It is a minimally invasive method that is also known as fat grafting. This technique provides more natural results when compared to an augmentation with implants.

During the procedure, your surgeon will purify the fat so that only the highest quality is used. The fat is then converted into liquid form and injected into the patient’s breasts to augment the size and appearance.

Who Is Suitable for a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

A fat transfer breast augmentation procedure is ideal for ladies who want to improve their figure through subtle enhancements. You’ll make a fantastic candidate if:

• You want to make minor improvements to your breasts.
• You have excess fatty tissue in other regions of your body that you’d like to have removed.
• You want to make your breasts more aesthetically appealing.
• You want to improve your proportions.

BRAVA System – The Key Step in Fat Transfers

To aid in a breast augmentation using the fat transfer technique, a soft gel bra called BRAVA has been designed as an external stimulus to expand breast tissue.

The BRAVA system is made of plastic domes that sit over your breasts in a mesh-like bra. The system works by applying slight amounts of pressure over the breasts. The pressure causes the breasts and their internal tissue to stretch.

While a patient is wearing the system, the skin expands and a fertile matrix is created within the breasts that will make it possible for fat to be transferred. This matrix that is created within the breasts allows the surgeon to transfer large volumes of fat from other parts of the patient’s body. The fertile environment allows these fat cells to thrive, resulting in little or no fat necrosis.
