The concept of “lunch break boob jobs” has been in the news recently, as California biotech company Cytori Therapeutics is developing a procedure involving fat transfer from the stomach or buttocks to the breasts. It is estimated that it will be performed under general anesthetic in just over an hour. Cytori products are only available in Europe and Japan, but I’m wondering what is the likelihood that lunch hour cosmetic surgery will hit the states any time soon. I beg the question:
Could breast augmentation by way of a fat transfer change breast enhancement entirely?
After all, given the choice of: 1. The traditional method of placing implants into my breasts while keeping all of my, ahem, backside volume in place, or, 2. Gaining breast enhancement while losing some of said backside volume – well, what would you choose? Would this add a new scope to the field that surgeons would inevitably be forced to provide?
At least one facility (that I know of) already does: Manhattan’s Tribeca Plastic Surgery, where Dr. Sydney Coleman and Dr. Alesia Saboeiro have performed cosmetic fat grafting surgery for some time, and have recently begun offering it for breast augmentation purposes.
However, with their LipoStructure™ technique, this type of fat transfer surgery is said to last longer than using breast implants.
I’m also wondering (and maybe you are too): Just what would breast augmentation by way of a fat transfer mean for the patient? Think about it. A woman’s breasts have been surgically enhanced with her own body fat. Later, she loses a significant amount of weight, and then…are they just GONE?
