For some women, a fat transfer alone may not provide the dramatic results they desire so they opt for breast implants. However, in some cases, implants are still not quite enough to achieve the customized and natural curves you’re interested in. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio invented Composite Breast Augmentation. He first published this technique in 2013 in the Journal of Plastic Surgery. By combining composite breast implants and a fat transfer, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is able to create the voluptuous look you’ve been longing for. This technique is known as composite breast augmentation plus fat transfer. This is a great option if you currently have breast implants and wish for more volume or are considering breast augmentation for the first time.
Ideal Candidates for Composite Implants and Fat
The best candidates for composite breast augmentation should be in good overall health with no history of abnormal bleeding. Patients should be nonsmokers with sufficient fat present on areas of the body. During your consultation, we will discuss realistic expectations and help you determine whether composite breast augmentation or another breast procedure is the best option to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Surgical Technique for Composite Implants and Fat
The surgical technique used during this breast surgery is similar to that of standard breast augmentation in terms of incisions, breast implant placement, and your choices for size, profile, and implant type. The primary difference in the procedures is the secondary process of obtaining fat through liposuction to be used for the fat transfer portion of the procedure. Your fat will be suctioned out with a cannula and placed into a centrifuge where it will be purified and separated. Once your breast implants are in place, your fat tissue is injected into the predetermined areas to increase volume and achieve the full and sexy look you desire and deserve.
What to Expect from a Composite Implants and Fat
When Dr. Del Vecchio’s breast fat transfer technique is combined with your choice of breast implants, you can achieve greater lift, lasting results, and full, natural-looking size. Additional benefits of this procedure include the slimming of the area where fat was taken for the transfer. Your recovery could last weeks to months, during which time you will wear compression garments and rest as much as possible. The Uptown Body Contouring team will let you know when it is safe to begin gentle exercise, such as walking. Once your recovery is complete and your swelling has subsided, you will enjoy beautiful results.
