Using fat injections for breast augmentation has become a hot topic in plastic surgery. But is this really safer than using breast implants? When I consult with clients interested in non-surgical breast augmentation in Naples, FL, I inform them of the following considerations, among others:
Non-Surgical Breast Augmentation Still Unproven
Researchers continue to study the efficacy and potential risks of non-surgical breast enlargement options, including fat injections. For now, however, the longevity and potential risks of fat injections have not been established.
Breast Implants FDA Approved
Both silicone gel-filled and saline-filled breast implants have received FDA approval. Implants have undergone decades of clinical studies and FDA reviews, and studies continue. Realizing that some risk exists for any surgical procedure, breast augmentation has been demonstrated to be safe and effective.
Consult a Qualified Plastic Surgeon
Finding a board-certified plastic surgeon, is an important consideration when selecting your provider. Ask your prospective plastic surgeon about his or her qualifications and training. Also, check out his or her references and before and after photos; many plastic surgeons provide these on their websites.
