Breast Augmentation using autologous fat stem cells or the most natural breast augmentation is a relatively new procedure for the majority of plastic surgeons around the globe, but not for New York City Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Leonard Grossman. Dr. Grossman pioneered and perfected the procedure of fat grafting or fat transfer to the breasts in 1995. Dr. Grossman considers breast augmentation with fat to be the best breast augmentation procedure as long as the patient has enough fat for harvest and transfer. In the procedure of fat grafting, the patient’s own fat and stem cells are being placed in to the breasts for augmentation with permanent results when done by Dr. Grossman.
Dr. Grossman is one of the first plastic aurgeons in the US and the World, and definitely one of the first NYC Plastic Surgeons to have successfully been performing this remarkable procedure of all natural breast augmentation with consistently reproducible results.
Fat Transfer or Fat Grafting to the breasts is a safe and reliable procedure when done by NYC Breast Surgeon, Dr. Leonard 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 natural breast augmentation with fat?
First of all you must desire fuller, bigger and shapelier breasts, second you must have good, 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 consists of two parts.
1. Using a syringe or specialized vacuum pump 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 a single procedure of 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.
When performed by Dr. Grossman, the removal and harvest of 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 a few 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 NYC Fat Grafting 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 augmentation 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 NYC 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.
Many of our staff have had the procedure and will happily discuss it with you.
The patient must know that when shopping for the best deal in town keep these facts in mind and also beware 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 when performed 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.
