Dr. Duplechain Explains Your Breast Enhancement Procedure
When performing breast augmentation surgery, I either perform fat transfer breast augmentation or use breast implants, depending on the patient, her preferences, and her anatomy.
To perform your fat transfer breast augmentation, I use a modified liposuction technique to remove fat from areas of the body such as the midsection, flanks, or thighs. The removed fat is harvested and purified before being injected into the breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation has now received FDA approval and can be performed through a very small 5mm incision in the breast fold. A sports bra is worn for a couple of weeks, and then a normal undergarment can be worn. Once the fat has "taken," meaning that it has integrated with the natural breast tissue, you can enjoy your new breasts.
I can also use saline or silicone gel breast implants for Baton Rouge, Alexandria and Lafayette, LA patients who want to improve their body contours. While this method requires incisions on the breasts, breast implants can help dramatically increase breast size and shape. With several different choices in regard to shape, texture, size, and fill material, breast implants can provide an array of options when looking to add significant volume to the breasts.
Recovery & Results
While a breast enhancement with fat transfer can achieve noticeable enhancement, it is important to understand that this method will not achieve the same results as breast augmentation using implants. Fat transfer breast augmentation patients report that they enjoy the subtle, natural results it provides.
When recovering from the treatment, any areas that were liposuctioned will need to have compression garments worn until they heal (typically 1 to 2 weeks). Also, a special bra must be worn for several weeks following either type of breast augmentation. I give all of my patients detailed instructions for aftercare, and my staff is always available to answer questions that arise during recovery. After your recovery is complete, you can enjoy your new breast and body contours.
