ABC News Health reports on Miami Breast Center’s breast augmentation and reconstruction procedure. ABC notes how natural breast augmenation using fat transfer and an external suction device could become a mainstream procedure in the future. The procude is the solution many breast cancer patients have been seraching for.
“Fat tissue grafting to the breast has been frowned upon for a very long time,” said plastic and reconstructive surgeon Roger K. Khouri, MD, FACS Roger Khouri of the Miami Breast Center in Miami, Fla. However, he said his new approach, which incorporates a vacuum pressure device to expand the breasts before and after injection, leads to better results than in the past. “
“Ideally this is a great solution,” McGuire said. “I can’t tell you how many patients have told me, ‘I have too much fat here, and my breasts are too small can you take this out and put it there?”
