Why You Would Want Breast Implants
While fat transfer may be more natural than breast implants, it’s also less reliable. When fat is transferred, it may be reabsorbed by the body and provide no, or very minimal, breast enhancement as a result. Breast implants, on the other hand, remain intact in size and shape after surgery, giving you the exact results you envisioned for the procedure. Implants should also be considered if you want a significant (more than one cup size) increase in your breast size. Plus, since the fat transfer procedure is essentially two procedures in one (liposuction and breast surgery), it is a more expensive option than breast implants—another reason you may opt for implants instead.
Dr. Bermudez offers saline, silicone, and Ideal silicone as implant options. To learn more about each implant type, schedule your own personal consultation with the doctor.
