Composite Breast Augmentation
Composite breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that combines breast implants with fat transfer to enhance breast size, shape, and projection. During the procedure, the surgeon will typically begin by performing liposuction to harvest fat from another area of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs. The harvested fat is then processed and injected into the breast tissue to improve contour and create a more natural-looking result.
Composite breast augmentation is particularly useful for women who desire a moderate increase in breast size and are seeking a more natural-looking result than is achievable with implants alone. It is also an option for women who have a mild to moderate degree of breast sagging (ptosis) and would benefit from a breast lift in combination with augmentation.
As with any surgery, there are risks involved, including bleeding, infection, scarring, and anaesthesia complications. Your plastic surgeon will discuss these risks with you during your consultation and help you determine if composite breast augmentation is right for you.
