Las Vegas Laser and Lipo wants you to know that if you’ve been considering enhancing your breasts or buttocks – but your concern about implants or surgery has made you hesitant – then you’ll want to consider a fat transfer procedure instead, it may be exactly what you’re looking for.
With natural breast and buttocks augmentation, the fat transfer process makes it possible to collect excess fat from one area of your body and move it to another area in order to smooth the skin and create a more youthful physical appearance.
Natural augmentation can be performed by itself or in combination with laser, water or power assisted liposuction. Under local and tumescent anesthesia with conscious sedation, excess body fat is easily and conveniently harvested from your designated donor areas. Once the excess fat is collected. Your own cleansed and processed fat is strategically woven and blended a sterile syringe is then filled and injected into the targeted area. Patients normally have very little discomfort, pain or side effects associated with these procedures.
Natural breast and buttocks augmentation has become extremely popular over the last decade as techniques and technology have allowed fat transfer to offer a more permanent result compared to other types of fillers. Because the fat is harvested from your own body, it quickly blends into the surrounding tissues to produce a natural look and feel, while augmenting the volume in a natural appearing manner.
Another fascinating benefit of natural augmentation is the presence of stem cells. According to recent studies, fat may contain more stem cells than bone marrow. Stem cells are capable of becoming any type of cell in your body. New information suggests that while some of the injected body fat will break down and be absorbed, the stem cells carried in the fat can become new fat and connective tissue.
The enhancement you see at 4 to 6 months, will generally be kept for years and it will grow and shrink proportionately with your weight.
The best candidates for these procedures are healthy, non-smoking patients, with normal mammograms and physical exams, who have enough fat that can be spared from the donor site(s), to be purified and carefully woven into the receiving site in a manner that maximizes the fat cells chances of re-vascularizing and thriving in it’s new home.
Gently cleaned and processed, grafted fat must be placed within 1-2 mm of a new blood supply and not have too much compression on it, or it will die and be absorbed by the body. The grafting process is time consuming and precise to assure the greatest survival of your living graft and the most aesthetically pleasing shape is achieved.
Some patients benefit from repeating the grafting process 6 to 12 months after their first session, in order to enhance their outcome further. There is no data at this time to indicate that fat grafting has any effect on a woman’s likeliness to get breast cancer. In fact, fat grafting is providing some of the best reconstructions for women who have experienced mastectomy and radiation therapy.
Compared with synthetic implants, strategic liposculpting and natural augmentation can allow more overall flexibility to sculpt, curve and contour specific areas to give you the look you want. The result can be a more customized and natural-looking effect.
Many people like the thought of using their own natural body fat rather than having a foreign object implanted into their bodies since there is far less potential for deflation, scars and other complications.
Fat grafting is also beneficial for thickening the tissue overlying current breast implants so that ripples and asymmetries show less. Please note that smokers and avid exercisers are not good candidates for fat grafting as they are less likely to retain their results.
In addition, even the newest saline and silicone implants aren’t necessarily permanent. Experience and some companies that produce implants suggest that their product be replaced ….. Every seven to ten years. This means that an individual with implants can anticipate replacement surgery multiple times during their life.
Fortunately, many adverse reactions and other issues associated with synthetic implants can be avoided with fat transfer. Natural augmentation uses your own fat to re-volumize and even enlarge and improve symmetry of your current breast (or buttocks) contours. This result is usually significant and long-lasting.
Between 1 and 2 cup sizes can be achieved for each session of fat grafting that is performed. Fat grafting at Las Vegas Laser & Lipo is often enhanced by using your own platelet rich plasma to improve fat survival and speed of healing. (part of the vampire breast lift technique)

This procedure, known as “Fat Transfer”, has been available for more than 20 years.
With the public concern over silicone implants leaking and saline becoming a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus, more and more people are opting to have their own fat moved from one area of their body and used to enlarge, balance proportion and improve symmetry. Men are candidates for Fat Transfer to buttocks, calves and upper chest to improve appearance.
Excess fat is harvested from other areas of your body. That fat is “prepped” for transfer into the breast tissue or other areas. Weaving the fresh fat into the desired areas requires a blending of technique, science and art to obtain the best results. You could increase a cup size or more after several treatments done over the course of a year. Enlargement that you have 4 to 6 months after a treatment is likely to survive for years or even for life.
Las Vegas Laser & Lipo was the first practice in Nevada approved to send fat to BioLife for long term fat banking. That fat is stored in liquid nitrogen at -320 degrees F until you want it for further Fat Grafting or possible Stem Cell isolation.
