Am I a suitable candidate for Natural Breast Augmentation?

Natural breast augmentation is the perfect solution if you are looking to refine your shape rather than significantly alter it. This procedure will give you fuller and more shapely breasts. It is useful for young breasts, but currently extremely useful for refining the result of all types of breast reconstructive surgery. The prominent top and inner edges of a breast implant can be disguised. The empty upper pole of an older breast after childbirth can be plumped out.

For those who want a more significant increase in their bust size, we usually recommend surgical breast augmentation with implants. However, not everyone wants foreign material inserted into the body and natural breast augmentation using your own fat is attractive. The main point to consider is that the enlargement will be limited. Do not expect to be more than a cup size bigger.

A second operation will produce the same improvement. This, of course, depends on you having enough fat available. Many patients asking for breast enlargement naturally have a slim, athletic figure and have very little fat to spare. Your suitability for this procedure will be assessed during your initial consultation and examination.

It is important to be open and honest with your consultant so you can move forward with a procedure that can achieve the results you are looking for. Natural breast augmentation is a perfect solution for many patients, but be aware that there are limitations to the results of a fat transfer procedure that surgical implant augmentation does not have. You should not, for instance, be wanting to breastfeed within the next year

For some people, natural breast augmentation via fat transfer has some added benefits to it. Your breasts are being augmented with fat cells taken from another part of your body by liposuction, so you are really having two procedures. The liposuction will slim and define the part of your body you are taking the excess fat from.

The final result of your fat transfer to breast procedure will depend on your current breast size and the amount of fat that can be extracted to be re-distributed. You may need several sessions to achieve the full look. The best way to find out exactly what you should have for your specific case is to book a consultation with one of our experienced surgeons at the Cadogan Clinic.
