When considering plastic surgery to enhance the appearance of the body, there are many aspects that need to be discussed before scheduling the procedure. A talented and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to guide you and help you make the best decisions when it comes to plastic surgery.

The breasts are a feature of the body that can have a significant effect on how a woman sees herself and it can also affect her self-esteem and body image. The breasts are always associated with femininity and a symbol of motherhood as well. A good volume of the breasts and a lovely shape is a dream for many women. This dream can be quite easily achieved nowadays with the help of plastic surgery. There are two procedures that can increase the size of the breasts.

The most popular procedure performed for breast augmentation purposes is breast implant surgery. The procedure entails the use of saline solution or silicone implants that are inserted in pockets inside the breasts to increase their volume. This procedure is among the two most performed plastic surgery procedures in the world, has a high satisfaction rate among clients, and is very safe when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon in an accredited medical facility. However, despite the popularity of breast implant surgery, there is another procedure that is more and more in demand for breast augmentation. This procedure is known as fat transfer, breast lipofilling, or fat grafting to the breasts. The procedure entails the collection of fat from areas with an excess of adipose tissue and its reinjection into the breasts. 

Fat transfer is considered to be less invasive compared to breast implant surgery. The procedure is recommended for patients who want a moderate or discreet augmentation of the breasts. There is a limited amount of fat cells that can be safely transferred to the breasts, so patients should expect an augmentation of half a cup to a bra cup size and not more after a session of lipofilling.

Before undergoing the procedure, patients ask more details about what it entails and what is to be expected in the long run. A good question to ask before breast lipofilling is when to get the procedure is you plan to get pregnant in the future. Generally speaking, pregnancy is one of the factors that can alter the results achieved with plastic surgery and even the appearance of natural breasts. This is the reason why a responsible plastic surgeon will advise you to get breast enhancement surgery only after you know your family is complete and you don’t want to get pregnant again in the future.
