Breast augmentation is still the most performed cosmetic surgery in the United States. In fact, The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery states that breast augmentation replaced liposuction as the most popular surgical procedure in 2012.
The most common way to increase breast size is with silicone or saline implants. But there may be an even safer procedure done to achieve a larger bust that does not involved implants of any kind – it involves using the body’s own fat.
A fat transfer or natural breast augmentation is exactly what the name implies: the selective transfer of body fat from one part of the body – usually from the thigh, stomach or buttocks – to the breasts.
A natural breast augmentation is the perfect choice for women who are looking to increase the size and volume of their breasts without the use of implants. Starting with liposuction, your existing body fat is removed and then transferred into your breasts. When compared to using silicone or saline breast implants, a natural breast augmentation provides more flexibility during body contouring and enhancement. This can offer a more customized look that looks and feels completely natural.
Women can normally expect an increase of one or two cup sizes with a natural breast augmentation. Because your own body fat is being used, your breast size will fluctuate with weight loss or weight gain and remain proportionate to the rest of your body.

Ideal candidates for a natural breast augmentation are healthy, non-smokers who have enough excess fat cells that can be taken from the body and relocated to the breasts. Because fat cells can die after they are transferred, enough fat cells must be taken to ensure the breasts remain at the desired size after treatment. Because this is a minimally-invasive procedure, recovery time is only a couple days – much less than that of a traditional breast augmentation. This allows you to get back to your daily routine much quicker, with much less risk of side effects.
