If you are looking for a natural breast augmentation we can help you at the Miami Breast Center. Micro-fat grafting is an implant-free fat transfer breast augmentation technique developed by Dr. Roger Khouri. It is simple, less stressful on your body than traditional methods and recovery time is quick.
Our outpatient technique is minimally invasive and has the wonderful side benefit of liposuction. With Dr. Khouri's micro-fat transfer procedure, the patient prepares for the procedure by wearing an external expander called BRAVA, while she sleeps for a few weeks. This soft gel-like brassiere gently suctions the breast area in order to create an adequate matrix for the fat injections.
BRAVA system is placed over the breast area when you sleep. Typical patients wear the BRAVA for 30 days before surgery. It is fundamental and the key for a high ratio of fat survival.
Creating the Vascularized Scaffold
External expansion of the breast occurs via slight but consistent vacuum pressure created by BRAVA. The Brava expands and generates growth of new tissue, and blood vessels. This expansion now allows room for Mega Volume of Micro Fat Grafts.
Your fat is harvested from several areas of your body through liposuction and is strategically injected into your breasts. No cuts or Incisions are made. New blood vessels form around the new fat deposits allow for fat integration and high % of fat survival.
During the outpatient procedure, Dr. Khouri then removes fat from one area of your body and meticulously injects it back as hundreds of tiny individual droplets in the breast site. These micro-fat transfer (autologous grafts) are harvested by gentle liposuction from the thighs, buttocks and stomach–wherever there is fat to spare. Even skinny patients do extremely well with this procedure. The fat then grows within a matrix of tissue and the breasts enlarge 'naturally', while the patient receives the benefit of liposuction.
Dr.Khouri explains how fat grafting to the breast works.
By using your own fat, we will fulfill your desire of having larger breasts. New moms also love our procedure, since it is perfect to restore volume that normally dissipates after child birth. As compared to implants, natural breast enhancement techniques such as herbal remedies, creams, foods, and exercise, breast augmentation with fat transfer involves no incisions, no new scars and no foreign objects. You will love your new breasts.
The procedure is done as outpatient, under general anesthesia and sedation. For more information on anesthesia please visit our Breast Augmentation FAQ page.
Average recovery time is 2-4 days, a lot quicker than implant surgery. For more information on the recovery time please visit our Breast Augmentation FAQ page.
