In the current update on breast enhancement there are many methods — some temporary while others are permanent. You should select one that gives the best-desired size and appearance, and will last for a lifetime. More importantly, it must also give the best natural shape and softness.
Autologous Fat Transfer
For those who do not want anything other than their own tissues, we can now use the autologous fat graft. The fat is harvested from the other parts of the body and then carefully transferred after meticulous filtering to the breasts in a very carefully planned surgery. This is the most secured method but will not be able to increase the size of the breast significantly, probably one size up. It may require more than one session of fat graft to give a good enhancement.
Anatomical Cohesive Gel Implant
The usual method is to use an appropriate implant – the anatomical cohesive gel prosthesis. This will not leak even when cut through and will give the patient the best natural shape. It’s usually performed as a Day Surgery procedure.
Fillers like Macrolane or Hycorbs are also being used to enhance the size of breasts. This is temporary and will require top ups yearly.
