Is There Such a Thing as a Natural Breast Lift?

If you’re considering a breast lift, but not thrilled about the idea of having a breast implant, you should know about a new procedure that uses your own fat to add volume or fullness to your breast.  Dr. Louis P. Bucky, a board certified plastic surgeon, discusses an alternative for women to get the lift and volume they desire in a natural looking way, all without an implant!

Fat continues to be a hot topic in plastic surgery, leading surgeons to utilize it’s function in many different procedures to achieve better looking results. One such use of fat is in the area of a mastopexy, or breast lift.

“With a breast lift alone in a patient who doesn’t want a breast implant, the challenge is to get enough fullness in the upper pole, or top half of the breast,” says Dr. Bucky. “For the patient who doesn’t require an implant but needs a bit of volume, using their own fat to help shape the breast, as well as lifting, is ideal.”

The BRAVA breast lift

After the breasts have been lifted and the fat applied to the areas needing volume, Dr. Bucky utilizes a special device that prepares the breasts to receive the transplanted fat cells into the breast tissue. “We call it a BRAVA breast lift, because the BRAVA component is the suction device that helps stimulate the breast and become a good receiver of transferred fat,” says Bucky.

When we’re thinking about transferring some fat, they often have a little extra in their abdomen. Whether they’re going to have a tummy tuck at the same time or just need a bit of liposuction, we no longer throw the fat away.”

Keeping It Natural

A procedure that has great, natural results is very appealing for many women who either don’t want implants, or don’t need them. “We lift the breast and fill it in the areas that need fill so they can have a beautifully shaped breast without the need of an implant, or the need for implant maintenance in the future,” says Bucky. “It fills all of their needs in one operation.”
