Autologous Fat Transfer Breast, AFT Breast Augmentation
Patients sometimes desire greater volume in their breasts without going down the breast implant route. Autologous Fat Transfer (AFT) has revolutionised volume enhancement of the breast, and involves harvesting fat cells from areas of your body like the tummy, flanks or thighs and transferring these fat cells into the breast to add volume. The only limitation of this technique is that there is a limitation to the increase of size which generally is no more than 1 cup size increase and that it can’t add projection similar to that given by breast implants.
But it is the most natural way of achieving subtle breast volume enhancements.
