Anup Dhir is a senior cosmetic surgeon at New Delhi’s Apollo hospital and spoke to The India Times concerning this hot new procedure. He said that surgeons were once afraid to use fat grafting. He explained, “A decade ago surgeons were hesitant to perform this procedure as calcification after fat transplantation could not be differentiated from those caused by cancer.” Calcification is the process where calcium salts build up in soft tissue making it hard. He goes on to explain that the MRI has allowed these concerns to be cleared up.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), which was holding reservations about this procedure, has finally given their approval. Anup Dhir said, “I personally feel the situation with fat grafting will be the biggest thin in plastic surgery in the first half of the 21st century, not just for breasts but for other parts of the body as well.” Being able to have a breast enhancement while also slimming and contouring the body, is a novel procedure that many women will be excited to avail themselves of.
Meenakshi Agarwal is a Mumbai- based cosmetic surgeon who has performed a few fat-grafting surgeries, and he sings praises to the natural look of the new breasts. To the India Times he explained, “If a woman wants natural looking breast, she should go for fat grafting. It is a better way of getting a soft, visible push-up effect and more streamlined breasts.” No matter how good the surgeon is, getting silicon or saline implants to look and feel as natural as a fat grafting augmentation is impossible.
Dr. Dhir would caution women who are seeking this procedure to be sure that the surgeon is well trained. He said, “The technique must include all precautions to ensure that the maximum survival of fat tissue occurs. This can be achieved by reducing the possibility of trauma to the harvested site, demonstrating correct refinement of the tissue.” He also explains that a patented suction system is being designed to make the transfer more efficient.
This procedure is less invasive than a traditional breast augmentation and the results are claimed to be better. The fact that the implanted material is from the patients own body helps to prevent the development of complications and side effects. This procedure could indeed be the future of breast enhancement.
