If you’ve always longed for bigger boobs, you might be considering undergoing a breast augmentation procedure. So, what are your options?
The traditional surgical enhancement of your breasts involves having a saline or silicone implant inserted beneath your existing breast tissue. The results are immediate and you can choose the size and shape of the end result.
The procedure will be carried out under a general anaesthetic in hospital or in a properly equipped cosmetic surgery clinic. You’ll need a few weeks to recover from the surgery and there will be some discomfort, swelling and bruising that will vanish quickly to leave you with beautiful new boobs.
An alternative to implants is fat grafting. Fat is removed from areas of your body where it is plentiful and it’s then implanted into your breasts. This procedure is generally used to improve the appearance of the breasts, rather than just to make them bigger.
Stem cell implants
Stem cell implantation is a relatively new procedure and was originally used for reconstructive surgery in women who had undergone mastectomy following cancer treatment. The procedure is now widely used as an alternative to traditional implants.
The stem cells are taken from the fat of the thighs or stomach. The stem cells are then grown in a lab and injected into the breast tissue where they rapidly multiply and eventually grow to form new breast tissue. The result is a natural-looking and feeling breast.
Recovery is pretty much instantaneous as the procedure is only minimally invasive. However, it’s only possible to increase breast size by one cup size and no uplift or firming effect can be achieved. In addition, it can take a few months before any results are seen and the procedure itself is usually around twice as expensive as a traditional boob job.
