Breast Implants: Forget silicone, use body fat

Looking to get breast implants? Why not get a use the extra fat from your tummy or your thighs?

In this revolutionary new procedure a patient is given local anesthesia and the fat removed during liposuction, mixed with other body cells is injected into the breasts  (instead of traditional silicone). The procedure is known as platelet injection fat transfer (PIFT).

Emma Harding's boob boost from 32B to 32C using her own fat

Last December 25-year Emma Harding became the first British patient to go under the procedure going from 32B to 32C.

'I always wanted larger breasts, so when I was made redundant from my job in marketing last year and found another job straight away, I decided to spend the money on surgery,' she says.

'Having silicone implants was not for me - I may have wanted a bigger chest but I didn't want to look like Jordan. And I didn't like the idea of something alien in my breasts.'

Emma considered injections of synthetic filler Macrolane - a procedure known as 'the boob jab', which can boost the breasts by a cup size.

'But I decided against this as I had heard too many reports of this filler turning lumpy,' she says.

'I began speaking to surgeons about other options, which is how I was offered the chance of having a PILF breast enhancement by the Viel brothers.

'I was concerned that it was a new treatment and there was an amount of uncertainty in the outcome and longterm effects. But Dr Viel reassured me I had nothing to worry about and that the procedure had been carried out in America.

'I asked whether there was a chance my breasts could end up lumpy and he told me the process eliminated that possibility. So I booked myself in.'

There are concerns regarding the procedure. There are concerns about breast cancer and asymmetricity with regards to fat absorption. Some plastic surgeons say that only 65% of the grafted tissue survives, which might mean that the post-procedure breasts might shrink over time.

 

Consultant plastic surgeon Mr David Ross, at Guy's, St Thomas' and Kings College hospitals, also believes the Viel brothers are giving patients overly optimistic expectations.

'I have used similar procedures in reconstructive and aesthetic patients,' he says. 'There is evidence that fat transfers could provide augmentation in the breast but normally only 65 per cent of the grafted tissue survives.

'My concern is the use of Vaser Lipo. This liquifies the fat which, in my experience, would increase the likelihood that they would be quickly reabsorbed. Much of what the Viel brothers are promising women is unproven.'

The procedure costs £3,500 around and further top-ups are £1,800 each. Sounds like that this procedure (if it works), might become expensive in the long run.

She looked better before, she now has big stretch marks underneath her underarms since the skin has been pulled. If the fat gets reabsorbed, the skin will be left sagging. I'm not sure why already-attractive people feel like they need to bother? Whenever I see an article like this it's always someone cute-looking like Emma getting the operation and not someone ugly.

Thanks for sharing this - I go to a Med Spa in Austin and have been very pleased with their SmartLipo procedure...but would definitely trust them for something like this as well.

I'd never heard of using a person's body fat instead of silicone - much safer, I'm assuming?
