Natural Breast Augmentation, Enhancement And Enlargement

Natural breast augmentation What is Natural breast augmentation?

Recently, exciting advances have been made in the world of breast augmentation. Now natural breast augmentation using one's own body fat is possible. While fat transfer techniques have been around for some time, it was only in recent times that fat transfer techniques have been fine tuned to deliver more effective and long lasting results.

Fat transfer, an exciting new option for women seeking to enhance their cleavage without resorting to implants is now a possibility and reality at The Sloane Clinic Plastic Surgery centre.

At The Sloane Clinic, consultant plastic surgeon Dr Tan Ying Chien uses Lipokit, one of the most advanced lipotransfer (or fat transfer) technologies available to deliver safe, effective and comfortable fat transfer cosmetic solutions.

What is fat transfer?

Lipotransfer (fat transfer) is one of the most exciting new cosmetic surgery techniques in which fat is removed from one area (usually the hips, abdomen or buttocks) and then injected into other areas of the body. Patients undergoing this procedure enjoy dual benefits of fat reduction in one area and enhancement in another. Essentially, unwanted fat from one area can be recycled to another area to give it a natural boost.

Unlike synthetic substances or implants, it gives a soft filling effect with natural results. Results are semi-permanent, lasting for a few years, depending on the amount of fat transferred. However, the advantage is that over time some of the transferred fat becomes permanent, giving you a long-lasting improvement.

How long does the procedure take and is there any downtime?

Breast augmentation using fat transfer takes about 2 hours. It is possible to experience redness, bruising and swelling of the treated areas but this will resolve in a few days to a week. Patients will need to follow the post-treatment advice given by the plastic surgeon.

How does our fat transfer technology yield better results

With most of the existing fat transfer techniques, only approximately 40% of the fat remains once the results settle. However, the improved fat transfer techniques utilized by Dr Tan Ying Chien dramatically improves the survival rate of the grafted fat to up to 80%.

The Sloane Clinic uses a FDA approved, patented technique to separate pure fat from free oils and impurities by using a special closed system. This enables better fat harvesting, resulting in greater fat purity and hence enhanced survival rates of the transferred fat.

What other areas can I enhance using my own body's fat?

Using the latest fat transfer technique, many cosmetic concerns can be effectively and safely treated. Apart from natural breast augmentation using one's own fat, Dr Tan is also able to correct aesthetic concerns such as depressions and irregularities caused by poor liposuction techniques. More excitingly, fat grafting can also be used to augment certain areas of the face such as the cheeks and temples.

Fat transfer is now available at The Sloane Clinic Plastic Surgery, 10 Sinaran Drive, #08-35 Novena Medical Center, Singapore 307506, Tel: (65) 6397 6848.
