Breast Augmentation Q & A
What changes are made during breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size of your breasts. During augmentation, Dr. Obianwu may also change the overall shape of your breasts, improve symmetry when one breast is smaller than the other, and restore breasts back to their normal size or larger following weight loss.
What is natural breast augmentation?
Dr. Obianwu performs natural breast augmentation, which means your breasts are enlarged using fat grafting rather than silicone or saline implants. Since the fat for your augmentation comes from your own body, this procedure targets two goals: It reshapes your body by removing problem areas of fat, while enhancing the size of your breasts.
Natural breast augmentation also gives Dr. Obianwu the ability to fully customize your procedure. Rather than relying on pre-sized implants, he artistically injects the precise amount of fat needed to achieve your desired breast changes.
How is a natural breast augmentation performed?
The first step of breast augmentation is talking with you about the size and shape you envision for your new breasts. This stage is essential to be sure you’re happy with your results.
Once Dr. Obianwu has a clear vision of the size and shape you want to achieve, he performs liposuction on your waist, thighs, upper arms, or other problem areas and uses the extracted fat for your breast augmentation.
The doctor performs liposuction using tumescent anesthesia, which means he injects the targeted area with a mixture of water, local anesthesia, and epinephrine to constrict blood vessels. As a result, your pain is eliminated, bleeding is minimized, and the liposuction is easier to perform.
Once your fat is removed, Dr. Obianwu purifies it to remove healthy fat cells from other components. Then the fat is carefully grafted into your breasts using a narrow tube and very small, discreet incisions. Once the fat is in place, it gradually rebuilds a blood supply and becomes a permanent, living part of your breast tissue.
What should I expect after a natural breast augmentation?
After your procedure, your recovery time is about 1-3 days. You’ll feel sore, so it’s best to rest for a day or two, but you should be able to get back to a moderate level of activity the next day. Swelling and bruising typically go away over the next few weeks, but complete healing usually takes several months.
