The breast, THE symbol of femininity! A beautiful, full-bodied breast reflects motherhood, warmth, fertility, abundance, passion and also eroticism. 98% of women who opt for breast augmentation choose silicone implants as fillers, the minority optfor the body’s own tissue, the own fat.

It doesn’t have to be a foreign body

Since the first silicone implants were launched in the early 1960s, more and more women want to have their breasts enlarged. After a few ups and downs, they established themselves as standard. Today, breast augmentation with silicone implants is the most common aesthetic surgery.

In recent years, however, the number of patients who choose the body’s own fat as volume donors has increased. First of all, a conventional liposuction is performed on the abdomen, waist and thigh; the obtained adipose tissue is injected into both breasts in the same operation.

Breast augmentation with own fat has many advantages

The body tolerates 100 percent of the body’s own adipose tissue, i.e. organic material. The postoperative result is natural, the breast feels soft and the body’s adipose tissue is not palpable and visible as in a ribling. In addition, there are hardly any infections compared to silicone implants. The own fat version is very well suited for compensating for existing breast asymmetries.

Fast and low-pain postoperative healing process

As part of a self-fat transfer, an inner wound surface with muscle-like pain arises at the point of withdrawal (abdomen, waist, thigh), but the chest itself hardly hurts after the procedure. Swelling is normal, but there is no major scar (only small punctures) and the introduced adipose tissue leads hardly cause tissue irritation. After three weeks, the exercise of sport (except for strength training) is already allowed again.

When is own fat out of the question for breast augmentation?

In addition to fat cells, adipose tissue also consists of stem cells. These are body cells that can develop into any other type of cell. Therefore, own fat should never be transplanted to a region where cancer cells have already been found. This means that women who have breast cancer in their medical history are not eligible for breast augmentation with the body’s own adipose tissue.
