Breast Implants Vs. Natural Breast Augmentation

Every year, numerous women elect to have a cosmetic procedure done to improve the appearance of their breasts. In the past, the most common decisions a woman had to make when getting a breast augmentation involved cup size, silicone or saline implants, and whether to go over or under the muscle. Today, women have the option of breast enhancement even if they don’t want an implant. The alternative would be what many have chosen to do in more recent years, which is a natural breast augmentation (or fat transfer). Though both techniques are designed to accomplish breast-enhancing results, there is a significant difference between the two.

Reasons to Choose a Natural Breast Augmentation

Natural breast augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that won’t take very long for patients to recuperate from. It’s a much safer method than traditional breast implants can offer, since the patient will undergo a general anesthesia and surgery in the latter option. Breast implant surgery also often leaves scarring, causes pain, and changes the sensations felt in the nipple and breast. None of these are typical side effects of a natural breast augmentation, but perhaps the best benefit of tossing thoughts of breast implants for fat transfer is that the breasts will continue to look and feel just as natural as they did before the procedure.
