BEFORE & AFTER BREAST FAT TRANSFER
Actual patient of Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery.
NATURAL BREAST AUGMENTATION
Many women would like a noninvasive, long-lasting solution to achieving larger, fuller breasts. Dr. Wendel can increase your breast size without breast implants, major surgery or lengthy scars. The BRAVA is a breast enhancement and breast-shaping tool that stretches your breast tissue over time, making room for fat grafting (fat transfer). Once the space in your breast area has expanded, Dr. Wendel carefully injects your own fat that has been liposuctioned from parts of your body, into your chest area, causing a more natural look.
The results of this procedure are not as quick and convenient as getting breast implants. It takes time to stretch your breast tissue before the surgery with the BRAVA external expanders, and the BRAVA System has to be worn after surgery too. A significant time commitment is required and wearing the BRAVA external expanders can be socially inconvenient. Also, women who want this procedure must have sufficient fat in other parts of the body to be harvested and prepared for fat transfer.
An increase of approximately one-cup size can be expected. Fat grafting for breast enhancement can also work well for correction of minor breast asymmetry, such as a woman who has one breast that developed slightly larger than the other. The BRAVA System can be used to stretch the smaller breast followed by fat grafts into that breast, increasing its size to more closely match the larger breast.
The combination of BRAVA breast stretching and fat transfer has also been reported to show promising results for the treatment of tuberous breasts and for women who have a misshaped breast from breast cancer treatment.
Dr. Wendel wants you to know that some of the transferred fat doesn’t “take” and may dissolve. Sometimes more than one treatment session is necessary, especially if a higher volume of fat transfer is desired. The results of two smaller treatment sessions are better than the results of one large Fat Transfer treatment session.
