Implants or Fats?
Your own fat extracted and purified from areas such as abdomen or thighs can be excellent volume filler for the breasts. All recent studies have indicated that it is a safe and predictable technique. It is possible to have a modest enhancement of 150-200cc in volume with fat grafting but patients desiring more volume may need another sitting in 3-6 month time. It is a good choice for you if you have concerns about implants being a foreign material as fat grafting provides good natural alternative.
