Natural Breast Augmentation, also known as Breast Enlargement, is an effective alternative to traditional breast implants. Using fat-transfer techniques, the breasts can be enhanced without the use of foreign implant materials. You’re able to essentially achieve a more desired over-all look through this treatment, as you will be removing fat from stubborn areas in order to enhance the breast size.

This treatment is a surgical procedure, whereby one of our highly skilled surgeons utilises natural fat deposits found elsewhere in your body to enhance and increase the size of your breasts. The procedure involves two elements: first, liposuction techniques are used to remove unnecessary fat (typically from the waist, buttocks or thighs); second, this excess fat is then used to enhance and reshape the breasts. This technique is common among women who are unsatisfied with the texture of previous breast implants, or those who have undergone mastectomy. 

Our surgeons will be able to go over the areas which are best to take the fat from for the transfer, and what will look best on you to give you your desired figure and body shape. If you’re looking for more fat removal from other areas, we can recommend liposuction treatments to compliment your breast augmentation surgery.

Before undergoing natural breast augmentation, you will be invited to a consultation at the Cadogan Clinic to meet with one of our highly knowledgeable consultants. During this initial meeting, you will be able to ask questions and voice any concerns you may have, to ensure you feel comfortable and confident if you decide to proceed with surgery.

Our surgeon will listen to your aesthetic concerns and show you your options for the procedure. Fat transfer has one advantage over implants, in that the fat be more easily used to change the breast shape. For example, it may be that fat is only required in the upper part of the breast. There is a limit to the amount of fat that can be grafted and if you wish to have a greater enhancement, you may want to consider breast implants, or another fat transplant at a later date. 

The scars are quite minimal with a natural breast augmentation and we offer an advanced scar treatment program which will help minimize the look of scars. Our focus is always on lessening any scars, and on retaining the connections between the breast tissue and the skin in order to preserve the ability to breastfeed. This is another advantage that fat transfer has over breast implants.

In our state-of-the-art facility, some of our surgeons offer the advanced Crisalix imaging, which allows you to see before and after photos of what your results may look like. These images will help you to visualize what the potential outcome of your surgery will be. Images can show both the sizing of the breasts and the areas where the fat will be taken from, so you can have a visual of what the over-all results will look like. The Crisalix images are emailed to you, so that you can take them home and review the different options while considering going ahead with surgery. This is an excellent way to get opinions from your partner or friends on what you will look like with your new breast augmentation.
