New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits has long used fat transplantation for buttock augmentation and facial rejuvenation, but it is only recently that the technique has received a tentative endorsement for use in breast augmentation. This announcement has triggered a wave of excitement, including some exaggerated claims about the amount of augmentation a woman might be able to achieve with this technique. Breast augmentation with fat transplantation is certainly an exciting possibility, but the area where fat transplantation may be able to make the most difference is in breast lifts.
When breasts begin to sag, it is often due to a combination of factors, including changes in skin tone and the cumulative effects of gravity, but also lost breast volume. In reshaping the breasts during a breast lift, fat grafting can help surgeons to achieve an ideal shape and volume, according to results that were announced on October 24 at this year's annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
In performing either a breast lift or breast augmentation, Dr. Lefkovits will use all of the most effective techniques in achieving the breast appearance you desire.
