How is Breast Enlargement Done?
If you’re wondering how breast enlargement surgery is done, keep in mind there are several ways to enlarge your breasts, both surgically and non-surgically.
Breast enlargement with breast implants is a popular procedure where a breast implant is inserted into the breast pocket to give the breasts more volume and/or shape.
During your breast enlargement surgery, small incisions are made in an inconspicuous area of the body to minimize visible scarring. Incision options include: peri-areolar (around the areola), or IMF, inframammary fold (under the crease of the breast), and will depend on the type of breast enlargement surgery being performed and the body type of the patient. For instance, if the breast enlargement surgery is being performed at the same time as a breast lift, then the incision pattern may be more complex.
Women that tend to get breast enlargement with implants want a significant increase in volume, usually a cup size or greater. Some candidates for this type of breast enlargement have undergone a mastectomy and/or breast reconstruction. This is also a preferred method of breast enlargement for transgender women, and it is known as a top surgery.
Breast Enlargement with Fat Transfer
Breast enlargement with a fat transfer involves using liposuction to remove fat from unwanted areas of the body such as the hips, flanks, thighs, or abdomen, and injecting that fat into the breasts for a subtle and all natural looking enhancement. The benefits of this type of breast enlargement are that it is a less invasive procedure, which means less recovery time for my patients. Also, unlike implants, once the fat has been transferred it becomes a permanent part of the body. Many women seek out this type of breast enhancement from me simply because they do not want implants, they would prefer a more natural method.
Breast Enlargement with PRP
Breast enlargement with PRP injections is also commonly known as a vampire breast lift. This type of breast enlargement uses PRP, which is platelet rich plasma harvested from your own blood, and injected into the breasts to increase blood flow and collagen production, and skin tightening. This is a subtle non-surgical breast enhancement, which I recommend for women looking for an increase in volume without surgery. The effect of a vampire breast lift is one of rejuvenation, and will not necessarily make a noticeable difference in the size of the breasts, although it does enhance them somewhat.
