Natural breast augmentation is a new procedure that transplants fat taken from your own body via liposuction to add volume to the breasts. This fat transfer technique is relatively new and there aren't very many physicians performing this procedure currently. Those who do use it though are confident in its safety and effectiveness.

"This procedure is a safe and effective way to enhance the size of the breasts, while simultaneously removing fat where it's not wanted, all without invasive surgery," states Dr. Robert Langdon, Medical Director of The Langdon Center. "The best candidate for Natural Breast Enhancement is that person who has lost fullness in her breasts due to age, weight fluctuations or breast feeding, and desires an increase in size and fullness of up to 1 to 2 cup sizes."

Dr. Langdon begins the Natural Breast Enhancement procedure with {!Body-Jet Liposuction,| Body-Jet} which is also known as Water Assisted Liposuction. It is performed in-office under local anesthesia. Using a fan-shaped nozzle, pulsating water loosens fat cells from connective tissue while vital structures such as blood vessels remain mostly intact. This is performed on a donor area that is rich in fat, such as the hips, thighs, stomach, or buttocks - conveniently, places where fat removal is most desired.

"Fat tissue is the most abundant source of adult stem cells, which can develop into other cell types," Dr. Langdon says. After harvesting the fat, adult stem cells, which differ from embryonic stem cells, will actually develop into blood vessel cells to aid the body in accepting the transplanted fat. After fat is removed from the donor site, it is carefully placed in the breast using a specialized injection cannula. The use of Body-Jet Liposuction is integral in this procedure because the fat cells from the donor site are extracted intact and can be injected back into the breast. There could be a decrease in what was initially injected due to some fat cells that do not successfully "take" but the injections will typically result in a permanent 150 cc to 250 cc, roughly 1-2 bra cup sizes, overall increase.

This breast augmentation procedure, which includes harvesting the fat from the Body-Jet Liposuction, takes approximately 4-5 hours. In comparison to traditional breast augmentation, there is less swelling and postoperative pain and bruising. Post operation, Dr. Langdon recommends a support bra be utilized to ensure fat remains in place.

"It is important for the public to know that although there are many myths about this procedure, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons issued a policy paper supporting the safety of Natural Breast Enhancement in March, 2009," says Dr. Robert Langdon. "New techniques have made this procedure a safe and effective alternative for breast enhancement. One popular myth is that most of the fat cells die, making the procedure ineffective; however, new techniques result in 85-90% fat cell survival."

Not for candidates who are looking for a dramatic change in breast size, Natural Breast Enhancement is an excellent option for any woman who is looking to add up to 1-2 cup sizes without artificial implants.
