Auto-Augmentation of the Breast
Many women find that after having children, breastfeeding or losing a significant amount of weight their breasts have begun to droop and lose volume. This is known as ptosis. This condition is very common and completely natural. However, many women seek to rejuvenate their appearance and boost their self-confidence with the help of cosmetic surgery. Often times women will shy away from breast augmentation with breast implants.
Breast augmentation can include using one's own tissue to boost volume while lifting breast tissue. It is called auto-augmentation breast lift surgery. Auto-augmentation, or breast fat grafting with lift, is best suited for women with ample breast tissue who want to enhance the appearance of their sagging breasts without losing size
What is Auto-Augmentation?
Women looking to improve ptosis and slightly reduce the breast size, typically see the best results from cosmetic procedures that lift and reshape the breast tissue. The best procedure for this is a breast lift (mastopexy). Breast lifts involve removing excess skin and tissue which ultimately reduces the size of the breasts but will make them perkier as the end result. For women who desire a lift without losing breast size and without using breast implants, an auto-augmentation breast lift can be a great option for their breast enhancement goals. An auto-augmentation breast lift, unlike a traditional breast lift, uses the excess tissue to and repurposes it to reshape, volumize and retain the patient's current breast size. This procedure is subtler but has a nice end result. Auto-augmentation breast lift is a great option for breast augmentation without implants.
Your Breast Fat Grafting With Lift Procedure
A breast fat grafting with lift is similar in many ways to the traditional breast lift. After careful assessment and planning to produce more symmetrical and volumized breasts, the surgeon makes a lollipop or anchor-shaped incision on the lower part of the breast as these types of incisions produce the best results long term. After the excess skin's outer layer (epidermis) is removed and tissue is adjusted, the excess breast skin and tissue that is normally discarded from the breast during a breast lift is carefully tucked back under the breast. From there the tissue is rearranged and sutured in place to produce a more youthful-looking shape and appearance in the breasts. Sometimes surgeons at Southwest Breast and Aesthtics will use Galaflex lite mesh for longer lasting results.
