Breast Augmentation using Autologous Fat Stem Cells is a relatively new procedure for the great majority of Plastic Surgeons around the globe, but not for the New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Leonard Grossman, since he pioneered perfected the procedure of Fat Grafting or Fat Transfer as it is known since 1995. In the procedure of Fat Grafting the patient’s own fat and stem cells are being placed in to the breasts for augmentation in NYC with permanent results when done by Dr. Grossman.
Dr. Grossman, who services all the five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, is one of the first Plastic Surgeons in the US and the World, and definitely one of the first New York Plastic Surgeons to have successfully been performing this remarkable procedure of all natural breast augmentation.
Fat Transfer is a safe and reliable procedure when done by Dr. Grossman. Just like Liposuction of the breasts can result in smaller breasts, adding your own (autologous) fat results in larger breasts.
What makes one a good candidate for breast augmentation with fat?
First of all you must desire fuller, bigger and shapelier breasts, second you must have extra fat somewhere on the body which can be used for harvesting and transfer. Of course you must be of healthy body and mind.
The procedure of Fat Transfer in Breast Augmentation NYC consists of two parts.
1. Using a syringe and a very small cannula (needle-like instrument), fat is harvested or removed from the areas where it is not wanted: in the thighs, waistline or the abdomen.
2. These fat cells, which have a high content of adult stem cells, are then washed, centrifuged and chemically stabilized for transfer. Live fat and stem cells are then injected in to the breasts scarlessly with a specially modified needle.
Once in the breasts, these fat and stem cells will survive permanently and live just like they did in the area where they were harvested.
As a patient, you should expect an increase in the breast size of approximately one to one and a half cup sizes from the fat stem cell transfer. Should a greater increase in the breast size be desired, the same procedure might have to be repeated.
If you desire to have an increase in two cups sizes or greater performed as a single procedure, then breast augmentation using saline or silicone breast implants should be considered.
The removal and harvest of breast fat is so gentle, that the majority of our patients don’t even bruise, they also rarely have discomfort for which anything more than Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen is required. Dr. Grossman’s patients don’t need any kind of compression garments, they can go to work the very next day, the gym in just three days and best of all…. hit the beach in just one week with open water swimming being perfectly safe as well.
The Breasts will feel natural and pain free almost right away, except may be for some swelling, which goes down rather quickly.
The breast procedure is normally done under twilight anesthesia, which results in NO postoperative nausea and extremely quick recuperative period. In fact most of our patients are able to go out for dinner the very same evening.
Our NYC center performs breast fat transfer procedures on weekly basis since 1995 and as a new breast implant patient you are likely to meet and speak to other patients like your self, who have enjoyed the benefits of this wonderful breast procedure.
The price of Breast Augmentation with Fat Stem Cell Transfer varies according to the areas where the fat is harvested from, as well as the volume of the procedure and the delicate nature of the procedure. Patient’s medical history and condition are very important in the decision making process, since the patients’ safety is of paramount importance.
The patient must know that the price of this breast procedure at our facility includes the breast surgeon’s fee, price of anesthesia, operating facility and ancillary staff fee, as well as all the future visits. When shopping for the best deal in town keep these facts in mind and also be ware that having the least expensive breast surgeon operate on you may eventually cost you so much more in the future. Corrective procedures are much more expensive, than the first time well performed breast surgery by someone like Dr. Grossman. Make sure your surgeon has hundreds of procedures behind his/her belt before attempting this procedure on you.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE: IN NEW YORK STATE, ANY, EVEN UNTRAINED PHYSICIANS CAN PERFORM SURGERY AT THEIR OFFICE. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR DOCTOR IS A QUALIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, NOT SOMEONE WHO TOOK A WEEKEND COURSE OF LECTURES ON HOW TO PERFORM A SURGICAL PROCEDURE. ASK YOUR PHYSICIAN TO PRODUCE DOCUMENTS THAT HE OR SHE HAS COMPLETED TWO TO THREE YEARS OF PLASTIC SURGERY TRAINING AT AN ACCREDITED RESIDENCY PROGRAM.
YOUR PROCEDURE MUST BE PERFORMED AT A CERTIFIED SURGICAL FACILITY LIKE OUR JOINT COMMISSION CERTIFIED SURGICAL CENTER.
Your goal as the patient is to make the right choice and have the breast surgery you have always wanted done right the very first time.
