Making the choice:
Breast implants or fat transfer?
To choose between implants and a fat transfer breast augmentation, you’ll need to evaluate your unique body and aesthetic goals. If you want subtle volume and a natural enhancement, a fat transfer may be ideal. For a dramatic transformation that you can customize with a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, breast implants may be more in line with your vision.
Both procedures are safe and FDA-approved. However, because a fat transfer uses your body’s own tissue for the augmentation, there is no risk of your body rejecting the material.
