Breast Augmentation (implants). One of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation with either saline or silicone implants provides a very natural look. Saline implants allow minimal incision breast augmentation; the scars are virtually invisible. Certain implants are adjustable following insertion, enabling fine-tuning of the look and feel. Implants can be placed either under the muscle or under the breast, and through incisions placed in the armpit, around the areola, in the breast fold, or even through the belly button. As with all cosmetic surgery, Dr. Copeland works closely with you to determine the ideal size, shape, placement, and location of the implant.
Natural Breast Augmentation (Fat Grafting) It is now possible for you to enlarge your breasts without resorting to implants! Specially prepared fat taken from another part of the body, such as the stomach or hips, is placed under the breast tissue to provide increased breast size without the need for artificial implants. The technique is called autologous fat transfers and autologous simply means “your own.” And who doesn’t have a little fat to spare? The procedure can be performed as an out-patient without the need for general anesthesia.
Natural Breast Enhancement with Fat Transfer
For patients interested in natural breast enhancement, I offer a tissue expansion system known as BRAVA® which is employed prior to the procedure in order to create an ideal environment for fat transfer. The ©Brava bra utilizes tissue expansion and the body’s own natural mechanisms for breast tissue growth and healing to increase breast size from ½ to 2-cups! Once the tissue expansion process is complete, the natural breast enhancement procedure involves the harvesting of fat from a donor area of the body via liposuction, followed by the cleansing and reinjection of collected fat into the breasts until optimal outcomes are achieved. The entire procedure generally takes about two hours to complete, and most individuals are able to return to non-strenuous work and daily routines after approximately ten days.
