Natural Breast Augmentation

What is natural breast augmentation?
Today more often many women are asking Dr. Hovsepian about natural breast augmentation. Dr. Hovsepain performs natural breast augmentation surgeries in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills. Natural breast augmentation is a safe natural way to increase the size of breasts. Women of all ages are using their own fat to increase breast size for a multitude of reasons. Selecting the right surgeon is the most important part of having surgery. Natural breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast for a number of reasons:

• To enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small.
• Utilize your own body fat and reduce fat in other areas.
• Small incisions.
• No synthetic implant in the body.
• Natural breast enhancement.
• To restore breast volume lost due to weight loss or following pregnancy.
• To achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape.

Are you a candidate for natural breast augmentation?
Natural breast augmentation can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. The best candidates for natural breast augmentation are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the size of their breasts. If you're physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Hovsepian. At your consultation Dr. Hovsepian will evaluate if you are a good candidate for natural breast augmentation surgery. You and Dr. Hovsepian will have a thorough discussion about your desired outcome, along with your past and present health condition. After this appointment you will leave knowing if you are a candidate for natural breast augmentation surgery, a clear understanding of how natural breast augmentation is performed, the recovery, and much more.

How is natural breast augmentation performed?
When Dr. Hovsepian performs natural breast augmentation, the first step is to perform liposuction and harvest fat from areas such as the thighs, buttocks and abdomen. The fat must be extracted as gently as possible to not disrupt or damage the fat cells. Dr. Hovsepian has a high level of liposuction expertise and he is very meticulous with removing and harvesting the fat to keep all of the fat alive. The fat is then placed into syringes. After carefully marking the breasts, Dr. Hovsepian can then begin to slowly re-inject the fat into the breast tissue. The goal is to not just "fill up" the breasts with fat, but also carefully place the fat into the tissue small increments at a time, so that the fat can attach itself into the breast tissue with the greatest blood supply and nutrients, enabling it to flourish and survive.

The results
For many women, the result of natural breast augmentation can be satisfying and can increase breast size up to one full cup size. Your decision to have natural breast augmentation is a highly personal one that not everyone will understand. The results of natural breast augmentation are subtle and very natural. The important thing is how you feel about it. If you've met your own personal goals, then your surgery is a success. Dr. Hovsepian uses dissolving stitches to close the incisions, which are very tiny, which will also be taped for greater support. A surgical bra is recommended, and body garment will be provided for you after the surgery. You're likely to feel tired and sore for a few days following your surgery, but you'll be up and around in 24 to 48 hours. You should be able to return to work within a few days, depending on the level of activity required for your job.

What are the risks of natural breast augmentation?
As with any surgical procedure, mild swelling and discomfort may follow the surgery. Some women have reported alteration in nipple or skin sensation. These symptoms usually disappear within time, but may be permanent in some patients. Every person’s ability to heal varies on genetics and physical characteristics. If you’re worried about scarring Dr. Hovsepian will speak with you about many scar-minimizing techniques that can be used after your surgery.

What is the recovery process for natural breast augmentation?
The recovery process will vary from person to person. After surgery you will return home the same day of surgery. Still, there are some basic precautions and instructions that you can take to help this recovery go as smoothly as possible, including:
• Arrange for someone to help you get around the house and help you with your medication for at least the first 24 hours after your breast augmentation. You may need medication for the pain and to control nausea caused by the pain medication.
• Avoid heavy lifting, contact sports and jogging for up to six weeks.
• Call your Dr. Hovsepian immediately if you notice an increase in swelling, pain, redness, drainage, bleeding in the surgical area or if you develop fever, dizziness, nausea or vomiting. Other red flags include shortness of breath, chest pains and unusual heartbeat.
• Wearing a sports bra for 4-6 weeks may be required.
• Wearing a body garment for 4-6 weeks.
