Fat injection for breast augmentation  March 1, 2010 11:58 AM

I know that there are some people doing this procedure. I do not know much about it and I do not do it myself, but it seems unlikely to be very good, considering that fat is an unpredicatable substance to inject. It is always difficult to predict when it is going to dissolve and how it is going to look. I would stick to the traditional method using silicone implants if I were you.

Yes! It is the hottest topic in plastic surgery. BUT it can not rally increase breast size but give a more fuller appearance. Now with the Stem Cell Enhancement techniques added to the FAT TRANSFER the results will be getting even better. Regards from MIAMI
