Breast enhancement, one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in the U.S., has typically been performed with the use of synthetic implants to add fullness and size to the breasts. However, advances in body contouring pioneered by Dr. John Millard allow for natural breast enhancement known as Vaser Hi Def Breast Sculpting, using the patient’s own fat rather than implants. There are a number of reasons to consider natural breast enhancement for your augmentation procedure.
Less Invasive Procedure
Vaser Hi Def Breast Sculpting begins with removal of excess pockets of fat from one area of the body, such as the abdomen, hips or buttocks. The fat may be removed through a variety of liposuction techniques, specifically designed to lessen discomfort and trauma to the body. Fat is then harvested and injected into areas of the breasts, adding fullness without incisions, anesthesia or postoperative scarring. Discomfort is significantly reduced over traditional breast augmentation and most patients are back to their regular schedules much faster.
Body Sculpting Benefits
Breast sculpting offers the additional benefit of enhancing other areas of the body contour at the same time. Dr. Millard can effectively create a more beautiful hourglass shape by trimming away isolated areas of fat from the midsection, while enhancing the breast curves. Even the breasts can be contoured further by removing small deposits of fat from the sides and underneath the breasts to create natural lift and make the breasts appear larger.
Breast sculpting using fat transfer provides both a natural appearance and feel to the breasts. There is no concern over the edges of the implant showing or of implants inverting or rupturing to change the outer look and shape of the breasts. Breast sculpting can also effectively enhance the natural cleavage between widespread breasts – something breast implants alone cannot do.
Option to Combine Techniques
When breast sculpting alone cannot give a woman the fullness she is looking for, the procedure can also be combined with breast implants to create a better overall result. Dr. Millard is highly experienced in this combination approach, taking care to create a natural look by remaining within the borders of the implant when removing subcutaneous fat from the breast area. A variety of sizes and shapes in implants ensures patients achieve the precise size they want, while remaining in proportion to the rest of the body contour.
Breast augmentation has become somewhat of an art form today, with the ability to sculpt the curves of the breast much like a sculptor creates a masterpiece out of clay. Dr. Millard is highly skilled in this type of breast sculpting and offers his patients the most natural, beautiful results possible.
