What is Breast Augmentation?
At Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL, we use BeautiFill™ technology to transfer fat from unwanted areas of the body to the breasts. No matter if you're dealing with a loss in volume or asymmetry, breast augmentation can give you the confidence boost you need without the need for implants. Dr. Arthur Schlyer uses laser technology in this procedure, which leads to a less-invasive treatment with notably shorter patient recovery times in comparison to other options. This treatment is not designed for significant weight loss. Instead, it is used to target problem areas and redistribute the fat where it is wanted. Learn more about this procedure by scheduling your consultation today.
As the procedure does not treat skin laxity, it is best for patients with relatively tight skin. It is best suited for those at a healthy weight that are simply hoping to lose some problematic fat in undesired areas while redirecting some of that fat to improve breast size and shape. Otherwise, the procedure is ideal for anyone over the age of 18 years old.
Breast augmentation with BeautiFill works well for patients hoping to:
- Increase breast size without the use of implants
- Reestablish breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy
- Attain a more well-rounded breast shape
- Achieve symmetrical breast sizes and shapes
Our Breast Augmentation Technique
During the initial consultation with Dr. Schlyer, the target area(s) for fat removal will be decided upon. On the day of the operation, a local anesthetic will be used before a very small incision will be made in each targeted area. At this point, a cannula will be used for the removal of unwanted fat, which will then be purified and transferred to the breasts. In this way, fat from the thighs, stomach, or buttocks can be used to enhance another area of the body. Depending on the size and number of targeted areas, the procedure can last anywhere from 1 – 3 hours, at which point the patient will be permitted to return home.
What to Expect
General soreness, bruising, inflammation, and discomfort are not uncommon following breast augmentation. The use of laser technology, however, means that the length and intensity of these symptoms will be much less than in traditional fat transfer alternatives. If these symptoms have not resolved themselves within a few weeks of the treatment, please give our team a call or mention the issues to Dr. Schlyer during a follow-up appointment. After 4 – 6 weeks, the full results of the operation will usually be visible. Nevertheless, it could take some patients a few months before their new breast and body shapes are fully revealed.
