The entire article can be read on the PDF link above. Below is an excerpt of the article:

“Sarah, a petite 34-year-old woman from Miami who asked that only her first name be used, considered implants, but said she didn’t want her breasts to “look hard or fake or extremely unnatural.” So she had Roger K. Khouri, MD, FACS Roger K. Khouri, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in charge of the Miami Breast Center, take fat from her thighs and buttocks to fill out her chest.

“I love that it’s just mine, my own fat,” she said. “I didn’t have to put anything foreign in my body.”

At the October meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Roger K. Khouri, MD, FACS Khouri presented a long-term study that suggested liposuctioned fat was now a “viable alternative to breast implants.” It tracked 50 women, ages 17 to 63, for an average follow-up of 3.5 years. (For weeks, participants wore a cumbersome bra-like tissue expander at night that was created by Roger K. Khouri, MD, FACS Khouri to create a scaffolding for their fat.) The study, which Roger K. Khouri, MD, FACS Khouri plans to publish in a peer-reviewed journal, found that the procedure does not impede the reading of mammograms and that on average, 85 percent of transplanted fat survived to give patients natural-feeling larger breasts.”
