Breast augmentation by lipofilling, with Brava®
This lady underwent breast augmentation by expansion with the Brava® system, followed by lipofilling.
For six weeks before the operation, domes with a soft border were applied over the breasts at night and during week-ends. A small pump provided light suction, which made the breasts gradually expand.
Fat was harvested by gentle liposculpture from the waistline, the hips, the abdomen, the anterior aspect of the thighs and the inner aspect of the thighs and the knees. Hence, the operation also included a subtle body contour correction.
The fat was filtered with the Cytori puregraft system and injected through stab incisions of at most three millimetres in the inframammary fold. The fat was injected mainly in the subcutaneous tissue and in the muscle under the breast.
The fat was distributed homogeneously over the surface and the base of the entire breast. The volume three months after the operation, when all swelling subsided, can be considered as durable in most patients. Nevertheless, some studies indicate that this is only certain one year after the operation.
