Washington, D.C. Plastic Surgeon Shares Scarless Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States. And while augmentation can be very successful with silicone implants, at Kay Plastic Surgery, we can create a natural breast augmentation without scars or silicone implants through the use of fat grafting. Breast augmentation and enhancement with the use of fat taken from the abdomen or thighs is growing quickly in popularity. For many, a youthful, natural, uplifted breast without traditional implants can be accomplished by extracting excess and unwanted fat from another area for placement in the breasts. This scarless technique harvests and places the required fat using blunt needles only. In a single procedure, with no general anesthesia and minimal recovery time, breast size may be increased. Women desiring larger increases may have the procedure repeated as early as three to six months later.
Scarless augmentation is an option growing in popularity due to the safety and success of the procedure. Medical studies show there is no scientific evidence that fat transfer to the breasts causes breast cancer or impairs diagnosis. Fat transfer to the breast is also used safely in breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Learn more and review all your options for breast augmentation with Dr. Kay during your consultation.
