What is Natural Breast Augmentation?
Dr. Berger’s Natural Breast Augmentation procedure is a safe, non-surgical technique that uses your own fat cells to improve the size and shape of your breasts. Liposuction is performed to harvest fat cells from another part of your body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs. These fat cells are then inserted into your breasts to achieve your desired appearance. This natural breast augmentation is a highly skilled procedure and should be performed by a physician with experience in both advanced liposuction techniques as well as fat grafting technology and techniques. Dr. Berger uses PRP in all his fat transfer procedures to enhance the results.

Dr. Berger avoids aggressive, unnecessarily traumatic methods. By using this fat transfer method, he can deliver the results you desire in the safest, gentlest way possible. Dr. Berger is always on the cutting edge of the newest and safest treatments offering patients less downtime and great outcomes. He is the president of the Foundation for Health and Safety for the California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery Foundation. Many of the procedures he performs are done in a minimally invasive manner offering patients less risk, less downtime, and superior results without going under the knife.
Several studies have been posted and, as of now, there does not appear that there is any literature that shows that fat grafting to the breast poses any significant danger to patients; as a matter of fact, most studies are showing the opposite.
The fat transfer process can be improved by using PRP and/or stem cells which create an enhanced natural blood supply to the treatment area. Since your fat cells are a rich source of regenerative stem cells, Dr. Berger can easily incorporate them into your natural breast augmentation procedure. Fat transfers achieve beautiful, long-lasting results. By using a stem cell enhanced fat transfer method, you will benefit even more. There is an added fee for adding Stem Cell.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the recovery for fat transfer breast augmentation?
The initial recovery time will be approximately 1-3 days. Any soreness or swelling should resolve within the next few weeks. The complete healing process can be anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
Can I get fat transferred to my breasts?
Yes. Fat transfer breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of the body and inject it into your breasts. This breast augmentation option is typically for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and prefer natural results.
Is fat transfer breast augmentation right for me?
A fat transfer breast augmentation can be a good option if you are looking to have a mild to moderate increase in breast size (typically 1/2-to-1 cup size) and would like to avoid having implants.
Are the incisions large?
Only tiny incisions are used during this procedure where fat is harvested and injected.
Does a fat transfer breast augmentation address sagging of the breasts?
Fat transfer breast augmentation does not correct the sagging of breasts brought about by pregnancy, weight loss, genetics, or age.
Can Fat Transfer Be Combined with Breast Implants?
Yes, many patients opt to use breast implants along with a natural breast augmentation. For those who wish to get a little more volume and contour in their natural breast augmentation, they can combine it with breast implants. Most surgeons believe that combining the two methods is a good option for many patients. When a fat transfer is combined with an implant, the implant is typically placed below the pectoral muscle rather than on top. Combining these two methods is a good option for thin patients who may need some areas of the breast filled in. This helps patients get a smoother breast contour if they have thinner subcutaneous fat tissue. By adding the implant, the breast will look more natural than with just fat transfer.
What is the Recovery Time?
This procedure is generally done on an outpatient basis with some sedation. For this procedure, since you are harvesting fat from one location and inserting it into the breasts, multiple areas of the body will be healing at one time. Fat transfer is essentially a liposuction procedure. It takes excess fat tissue from an area on the body where the patient would like to have less fat and then transfers it into the breasts for natural augmentation. There will be some swelling and bruising in the area for the first two weeks. The amount of swelling and bruising is proportional to the amount of fat that was harvested. Typically, most patients take a week off from work or school for healing. Typically, postoperative discomfort in the breasts is milder with this method than breast augmentation with implants. Most patients can return to full activities within 6 weeks post-op.
How Long Does This Procedure Take?
The fat transfer procedure is a two-step process. Performed by Dr. Berger, he will use liposuction to remove excess fat tissue in an area chosen at the consultation. Typically, most patients opt to have the fat taken from the waist, thighs, or abdomen. After the fat is taken it will be purified to prepare it for injection. It will be reinjected into the breast tissue at multiple injection sites. There are no incisions necessary for this procedure. Overall, this process takes anywhere from 4 to 5 hours since it requires multiple steps and is dependent on the amount of change desired. Dr. Berger will go over the expected time for the procedure during the consultation, but it is an estimate rather than an exact number.
What Are the Benefits of a Natural Breast Augmentation?
There are many benefits of getting a natural breast augmentation with Dr. Berger. Mainly, this method of fat transfer is a safer option than traditional breast augmentation. This is because it involves no general anesthesia, no incisions, and the fat is from your own body so there is no chance of an allergic reaction. Another great benefit is that this method is more natural looking than breast implants. Implants can sometimes look unnaturally high, hard, or overall fake, with fat transfer your boobs won’t have these odd contours that let people know you had a procedure done. Along with the safety and natural look of the fat transfer method, it also comes with less discomfort and recovery time. Dr. Berger will go over all the benefits of the natural breast augmentation during a consultation appointment. He makes sure to avoid aggressive methods so that his patients can have amazing results with ultimate care.
