Cropped,Close up,Portrait,Of,Nice,Attractive,Adorable,Girl,Chest,AfterBreast augmentation is a popular procedure, with more than two million women in North America opting for this surgery. Not only can it help create a fuller chest and enhance your curves, but it can also improve your confidence and self-assurance.

For those interested in breast augmentation, two main methods can be used to enhance the size of the breasts: implants and fat transfer. Keep reading to learn the differences and determine which option best suits your aesthetic goals and preferences.

What Is Breast Augmentation With Implants?

Breast augmentation via implant requires a surgeon to create an incision underneath the breast on the side near the armpit and then slip in the implant.

Implants come in wide varieties, including textured implants, smooth implants for a natural feel, round implants for more breast fullness, gummy bear or form-stable implants for holding their shape after the implant shell is damaged, saline implants–which can be filled after implantation, and silicone implants with silicone gel.

Benefits of Implants

Breast augmentation using implants is an incredibly common cosmetic procedure. With so many unique implant varieties on the market that you can select from, you’re sure to achieve your aesthetic goals. You can improve sagging and flat breasts (likely caused by aging, breastfeeding, or childbirth) with implants.

However, if you’re looking for a more natural way to enhance the appearance of your breasts, consider breast augmentation with breast transfer.

What Is Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer?

The other option is breast augmentation via fat transfer. Rather than insert implants, this augmentation procedure requires the surgeon to remove fat cells from another area of the body through liposuction and then inject the fat cells into the breasts.

What Are the Advantages of Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer?

Many people opt for fat transfer breast augmentation because it provides a natural solution for enhancing the chest. Furthermore, no follow-up procedure is needed, whereas implants require replacement. It also allows you the ability to slim other areas of the body, including your arms, back, thighs, hips, or abdomen.
