These days the primary focus of all women is to look beautiful. Not only do they use creams and mascaras to do so, they try to adopt techniques by which they can remove any extra fat from one part of the body and reuse the same in another part where it looks good. Such an instance could be when extra fat is removed from places such as the belly and thighs and reused to augment the breast or the buttocks. The process of fat grafting or fat transfer involves improving the area to which fat is being transferred. Dr. Claudine Roura who hails from the Philippines is an expert in all these three tricks. Dr Roura plans to make available this technology in various parts of the world such as Philippines, US, AUSTRALIA, New zealand, MIDDLE EAST UK and other asian countries.
Breast Augmentation with Autologous Fat transfers works as an alternative to breast implants. The process uses liposuction to remove fat cells from areas where they are not required and then they are placed onto the breasts. The parts that can be used for liposuction include the thighs, tummy, and the flanks as they contain the best fat that can be injected into the breasts for the purpose of augmentation. During liposuction, the fat removed is allowed to separate fat-cells from unusable fluids. This separated fat is then re-injected into the breast for augmentation. This augmentation thus achieved is directly proportional to the usable fat that is removed from the patient’s body.
Is There a Limit to Augmentation?
Well, the answer is Yes & No. Yes, if the process of augmentation takes place in the traditional way as described above. In such cases thin women can not be subjected to the process of augmentation as very less fat would be available that can be used for augmentation. No, if we are using the autologous fat transfer technique. We have to remember that we are injecting live fat cells that need blood flow and oxygen to take and survive. Hence the concern is more on fat cell survival and the capacity of the breast to take or accept the fat. If we put in too much and the environment is tight, hence a lot of the fats will not survive. Usually, we inject around 300 to 400 cc of fats if the breast will allow, with over 70% fat survival.
