This method is great for petite women who do not have enough breast tissue to cover an implant. At Restore Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ben Brown can use composite breast augmentation to fine tune your look and achieve natural feeling results.

Combining fat transfer and breast implants is an effective way to:

  • Increase overall breast size
  • Improve the shape and symmetry of breasts
  • Produce a natural breast appearance

During your composite breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Brown will place the implant in your breast pocket and then harvest fat from another part of the body using liposuction. The fat is usually taken from the tummy, flanks, back, thighs, or buttocks. Dr. Brown will then purify the fat cells before injecting them into the breast tissue to increase volume and improve shape. The result is full, attractive breasts as well as better body contouring in the areas where fat was removed.

Composite breast augmentation may be a good choice if you:

  • Want a customized procedure
  • Do not have a lot of breast tissue
  • Have asymmetrical or narrow breasts
  • Desire to have noticeable cleavage
  • Are looking for natural results

Since this breast surgery procedure is customizable, you can choose from a variety of FDA-approved silicone and saline breast implants. These can be placed under or over the muscle, depending on your preferences for shape and size. Silicone implants are generally better for achieving a softer, natural feel while saline implants can be larger and firmer. At your initial consultation, Dr. Brown will let you know what options are best for you based on your goals, lifestyle, and budget.
