Natural Breast Augmentation
Natural breast augmentation offers women another option for increasing breast size and volume, without hospitalization or synthetic implants. Dr. Taek Kim is the only cosmetic surgeon in Oakbrook IL who performs this innovative “awake” breast enhancement procedure. In addition, Dr. Kim has extensive experience with the natural breast augmentation procedure and has developed his own fat transfer technique for improved results.
As a result, you will remain awake and alert throughout the natural breast augmentation procedure, which means you avoid the possible side effects associated with general anesthesia. The local anesthetic will provide continued pain relief after the surgery is complete. Additionally, “Awake” breast augmentation allows you to go back to your daily routine soon after the procedure.
Natural Breast Augmentation Overview
Fat transfer gives you the most natural breast enhancement appearance possible because the fat comes from your own body. Dr. Kim harvests fat from a part of your body, usually thighs or abdomen, via Body-jet liposuction. Dr. Kim then refines this fat and injects it into the breast area. Furthermore, the result is a larger, firmer, more natural-looking breast. Thus, an important peace of mind that you have no synthetic materials in your body.
What Can Natural Breast Augmentation Do?
- Restore volume and fullness to breasts affected by pregnancy, breast feeding, age, etc
- 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
Saline implants are filled with a sterile saline solution, like salt water. The solution is held within a silicone shell. They’re inserted empty, and then filled once they’re in place. These implants can be filled with different amounts of saline solution. This affects the feel, firmness, and shape of the breast. If a saline implant leaks, the solution will be absorbed and expelled by the body naturally.
Silicone Gel-Filled Implants
Silicone gel-filled implants consist of a silicone outer shell filled with a silicone gel- a thick, sticky fluid that closely mimics the feel of human fat. Most women feel that silicone breast implants look and feel more like natural breast tissue. If a silicone-filled implant leaks, the gel will either stay in the shell or escape into the breast implant pocket. A leaking silicone-filled implant may or may not collapse. It rarely happens in modern version silicone implants. Therefore, patients choosing this type of implant should carry out more regular checks with their doctor compared with those on saline solution implants.
