Breast enlargement – Autologous fat transplantation
The one of the dreams of Plastic surgery, and like most surgeons (at least the ones that I talk to) is the future of Plastic surgery. Take the patient´s own (autologous) fat from somewhere else and inject it for breast enlargement (or buttocks or face). In the past, this has been a very troublesome procedure since it was very time consuming suctioned fat for transfer, and the survival rates where somewhat unpredictable.
This technique has experienced a major boost lately with the introduction of the Body Jet transfer system, which is a special, water assisted liposuction system. This enables atraumatic harvest of fat without destroying single fat cells, and is currently the only fat transfer breast enlargement technique with guaranteed success rates.
In our practice, Body Jet assisted breast enlargement with the patient´s own fat is currently our procedure of choice for the greater part of patients seeking breast enlargement already. In comparison to the classical centrifugation techniques (like the Coleman technique), the Body Jet is significantly superior both in handling as well as success rate.
The main difference between the two philosophies is that the Body jet technique puts emphasis not to damage the fat during harvest and manipulate it as little as possible afterwards, since every manipulation of the fat will decrease survival. Our data suggests that about 90% of fat cells survive the harvest process and are therefore excellent for survival. In contrast the centrifugation techniques are more traumatic and leave only about 5-10% of fat cells alive, which do then undergo lengthy preparation processes.
In our experience take rates of fat with the Body Jet technique are somewhat 10 fold higher. Most importantly, the Body jet procedure has made the procedure quicker and more cost effective for patients, since it is no longer necessary to waste hours of theatre time with the harvest and preparation process.
That does also make the Body jet natural breast augmentation technique much more cost-effective for patients.
