Guilford, CT (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
Dr. Robert Langdon, Medical Director at The Langdon Center, announces that natural breast augmentation is a smart alternative to the silicone and saline implants used to create volume in traditional breast augmentations. This innovative technique uses the patient’s own fat that is extracted during a liposuction procedure and is then transferred to the breasts where it can typically increase breast volume by one cup size.
“This procedure is a safe and effective way to enhance the size of the breasts, while simultaneously removing fat where it’s not wanted, without invasive surgery or the added risk of saline or silicone implants,” states Dr. Langdon. “My patients tell me that they enjoy the natural looking results, as well.” Dr. Langdon continues, “The best candidate for Natural Breast Augmentation is a woman who has lost fullness in her breasts due to age, weight fluctuations or breast feeding, and desires a moderate increase of up to once cup size.”
Dr. Langdon’s announcement is especially relevant during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Natural breast augmentations carry no risk of complications from foreign materials and are less likely to interfere with breast cancer screening. Many women prefer the natural approach over traditional breast implants made of silicone or saline.
The Natural Breast Augmentation 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, purified and 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.

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 and requires only a few days away from work or strenuous activity.
