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
Guilford, CT (Vocus) May 14, 2010
Dr. Robert Langdon, Medical Director at The Langdon Center, launched the latest technique in Breast Augmentation. His technique utilizes fat that is extracted during a liposuction procedure and is then transferred to the breasts where it can typically increase breast volume by 1 - 2 cup sizes. One of the benefits of this procedure is the removal of excess fat from body areas such as abdomen, hips and buttocks, where fat removal is most desired.
“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. 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.”
The procedure is performed using the Body-Jet® Water-Assisted Liposuction device, which utilizes pulses of water to gently harvest fat from the donor areas. The fat is collected in a sterile container, transferred to syringes, and then carefully placed into the breast using a specialized injection cannula. Unlike laser lipolysis, the Body-Jet® keeps the fat cells healthy so that they can take their new place within the breast tissue. While there is some decrease in breast volume after the procedure due to loss of fat cells that do not successfully “take,” the fat injections result in a permanent 150 cc to 250cc overall breast size increase, which results in a 1 or 2 bra cup size increase. A support bra is used after the procedure to ensure that the fat remains in place.
The standard breast augmentation procedure usually takes about 4 to 5 hours, which includes the fat harvesting portion of the procedure, and is performed under local anesthesia. Downtime is minimal with only a few days away from work or strenuous activity required.
“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.”
