What Is a Natural Breast Augmentation?
The Natural Breast Augmentation is a form of breast augmentation performed under local anesthesia that naturally seeks to reshape, lift and increase the breasts 1-2 cup sizes by removing unwanted fatty tissue from other areas of the body and transferring that fatty tissue to the breasts. Patients whose breasts have been affected by post breast-feeding sagginess, rapid weight loss, or the natural aging effects of gravity can be excellent candidates. When performed by a board-certified, highly experienced surgeon like Dr. Cole, the minimally invasive procedure is low-risk and requires only a 2-3 day downtime.
About Dr. Louis Cole’s Technique
What makes Dr. Cole stand out is his master technique and skill level. For the first part of the Natural Breast Augmentation, he uses the most advanced, minimally-invasive methods and laser technologies to safely and permanently remove fatty tissue from an unwanted area, all-while helping tighten the skin. Because Dr. Cole performs an additional step of using a state-of-the-art laser to tighten the skin after removing the fatty tissue, our patients can expect a smoother, significantly tighter result as opposed to the “old-school” traditional or tumescent liposuction result.
In second step of the Natural Breast Augmentation, Dr. Cole transfers the fatty tissue by skillfully injecting it into the breast in order to slowly augment and create shape. This is a very precise and methodical step that results in a very natural 1-2 cup enhancement size and “lifting” of the breast. Furthermore, Dr. Cole’s technique also includes adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a patient’s own natural platelet plasma containing amazing growth factors and is enriched in order to help stimulate the breasts. The result? Our patients can expect a more youthful, fuller, natural breast without any foreign object in their body.
What To Expect After the Procedure
Although we encourage patients to be mobile during the minimal 2-3 day downtime, it is important that patients are careful with their breasts over the next few weeks while the new fatty tissue cells “merge” with their existing fatty tissue.
During the first two weeks, patients can expect up to 1/3 of the new fatty tissue to be metabolized and lost. For this reason, it is imperative that a patient not apply direct pressure to the breasts such as laying on them. Should a patient not commit to this downtime, most of the fatty tissue transferred may not survive. Although this inconvenience is temporary, patients can resume normal activities by week 4 after the procedure.
