Bednar Cosmetic Surgery of Charlotte Seeing Uptick in Fat Grafting for Aesthetic Procedures

Share Article

Fat grafting is becoming more mainstream for breast augmentation because it is a natural alternative to enhancing the breasts and is ideal for women interested in more modest, natural looking results.

Patients are very research savvy and will spend a lot of time learning about their options for breast augmentation even before they schedule a consultation.

Bednar Cosmetic Surgery offers one of the latest advances in breast augmentation surgery that uses a patient’s own body fat to enhance the figure. According to a recent National Institute of Health funded study, 70 percent of reported surgeons say they use fat grafting techniques, along with implants and flap procedures in which tissue from another part of the body is used to rebuild the breast. While this fat grafting procedure was once more common for breast reconstruction, it is now becoming more mainstream for aesthetic breast procedures.

“We have seen a lot more interest in fat grafting for breast augmentation as of late,” said Dr. Edward Bednar, plastic surgeon at Bednar Cosmetic Surgery in Charlotte, NC. “Body fat transfer is a natural alternative to enhancing the breasts and is ideal for women interested in more modest, natural looking results compared to silicone implants that can increase the bust size significantly.”

As an added benefit, liposuction is used to remove the fat that will be used in the fat transfer to augment certain areas of the body. The fat is removed from the thighs, abdomen, buttocks or another area with excess fat, which slims and tones that area of the body on the patient. The fat is then placed with precision to ensure the right aesthetics and most natural appearance while allowing the fat cells to survive.

A fat cell transfer for breast augmentation is slightly more expensive compared to a silicone implant procedure; however a fat cell transfer is two procedures in one (augmentation and liposuction) and offers longer-lasting results.

“Patients are very research savvy and will spend a lot of time learning about their options for breast augmentation even before they schedule a consultation,” said Dr. Bednar. “Often times, when I meet with a patient, they are most interested in the fat grafting procedure because it avoids an implant and the maintenance that comes with it.”
