For years, women have wished to take fat from “there” and move it “up here”. For most women, we find fat deposits in stubborn pockets around the waist, hips, and thighs. All the while, the size and volume of the breasts decrease with age, pregnancy, and breast feeding. With natural breast augmentation in Langhorne, PA, you can have your confidence back.
Is your breast enhancement goal to gain a larger cup size or soften the appearance of silicone implants? Our cosmetic surgeons at Center For SmartLipo & Plastic Surgery have the expertise required to give you the best possible results from a natural breast augmentation procedure.
What to Expect from Natural Breast Augmentation
Natural breast augmentation is based on fat transfer, or autologous fat grafting (AFT). First our cosmetic surgeon harvests live fat cells from one part of the body using an advanced liposuction technique. The surgeon usually harvests live fat cells from your abdomen, hips, thighs and/or buttocks. Then, the doctor will clean and purify the fat cells using modern tools. After the doctor cleans and purifies the fat, the cosmetic surgeon injects the fat into the part of the body that you want to enhance.
The procedure is a completely natural form of cosmetic surgery because we use your body’s own tissue to enhance the breasts. In addition to breast enhancement, we can use fat transfer procedures for butt augmentation, as a dermal filler to plump the skin on the hands, and fill laugh lines on the face.
Lift Sagging Breasts
As a woman ages, her breasts lose volume, causing them to sag or droop. Breasts sag as the skin stretches over time and gravity takes its toll. A breast lift is a common procedure that can help you look and feel better. There are various ways to perk up your breasts, but the most popular one is through a surgical procedure called mastopexy or breast lift surgery.
The procedure involves removing excess skin from under the nipple area, reshaping the breast tissue. Then drawing in the nipple-areola complex to a higher position on the chest wall. Our doctor will not remove the nipples themselves during this operation.
In extreme cases where there is a lot of extra skin in addition to significant drooping, our doctor can make an additional incision in order to remove excess skin from above the nipple area as well. This is called a “lollipop” mastopexy or double mastopexy.
A breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size or shape of your breasts. If you wish to have larger, fuller breasts, you might consider a natural breast augmentation or breast implant surgery.
For many women, having larger breasts is more of a curse than a blessing. Overly large breasts take a physical and emotional toll on women. They often cause negative self image issues along with back pain and other physical pain. Get a more comfortable and natural look with a breast reduction.
The breast reduction procedure is a surgical operation that reduces the size of a woman’s breasts. It is also known as reduction mammoplasty. A breast reduction surgery can help you achieve a normal life where you are free to enjoy the things you love without the problems that come with having large breasts.
Our doctor typically performs this procedure to reduce the size of overly large or asymmetrical breasts. The procedure can improve physical appearance, relieve back and neck pain, and improve self-esteem. Women with breast cancer or other medical conditions may also undergo this surgery in order to prevent complications from their disease.
Fat Transfer vs. Breast Implants
Breast implants are a type of breast enhancement that uses silicone or saline to create new breasts. For several years, saline or silicone breast implants were the most effective way to increase breast size. Numerous medical studies and FDA approval testify to the safety of implants. However, for women who would prefer another approach, the natural breast augmentation procedure provides a new option. Fat transfer is a popular alternative to breast implants.
The doctor takes fat from the patient’s body and then injects it into the breasts to provide them with volume. Natural breast augmentation is especially great for women who want to sculpt the body with modern liposuction. We can use the fat that we harvest from these procedures to enhance the breasts and increase both their size and volume.
The main advantage of this technique is that it has a shorter recovery time, as the procedure requires no incisions. The disadvantage is that the procedure can only be done once, so the patient will need to get implants if they want more volume.
Natural breast augmentation has many benefits including less risk than surgery, no recovery time from surgery, no scars from surgery and less expense than surgery. Furthermore, the risks of natural breast augmentation are usually lower than the risks of surgical breast augmentation.
Breast implants can cause a number of complications, such as infection, leakage, and rupture. They can also lead to scarring and capsular contracture, which is when the scar tissue around the implant hardens and squeezes it.
In rare cases, implants can lead to an autoimmune disease called scleroderma or cancer. There is also a risk that they may not be appropriate for some women because of their age or general health status.

What Can Natural Breast Augmentation Do?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enlarge or reshape the breasts. The most common technique of breast augmentation is insertion of breast implants. However, we use natural breast augmentation techniques such as fat transfer. This procedure can:
- Make breasts fuller after pregnancy or weight loss, breast feeding, age, or an accident.
- Improve the shape and symmetry of breasts.
- Restore breasts after lumpectomy or other surgical procedures.
- Enhance cleavage, including cleavage for women with breast implants.
- Soften breasts or smooth rippling in women who have artificial implants.
