What is breast augmentation without implants?

Breast Augmentation is cosmetic surgery, medically known as Mammoplasty; this procedure is done to improve the breasts’ size and improve its shape. The surgery can be done with both implants and fat grafting methods. So, in simple words, breast augmentation without implants is done with fat grafting techniques instead of using implants.

Breast augmentation is done for several reasons like:

  • Increase the size of the small breasts naturally.
  • Restore the size of the breasts after conditions like pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss.
  • Restore the symmetry of breasts.
  • Restoring breast size after major surgery.

The procedure of Breast Augmentation through fat grafting

The procedure of fat grafting is detailed and planned. Before undergoing the procedure, make an informed decision. Make sure you meet a board-certified plastic surgeon only. Discuss the surgery and any queries you may have with the surgeon in details. Ask them to share the results of patients who underwent breast augmentation surgery with them. To begin the procedure, you have to intimate the team about your medical history.

On the day of the surgery, the surgeon will examine you and mark the areas of your body from where the excess fat will be removed using liposuction techniques. This helps contour areas of the body that have excess fat. This fat is then treated and purified to be inserted to the breasts using EVL (Expansion Vibration Lipofilling) techniqueto increase the volume of the breasts.

The surgical team develops a blueprint that shows:

  • Sites of fat harvesting.
  • The ideal size and shape of the breast you want.
  • The spots where the doctor will make incisions for the surgery.


The blueprint helps the team to mark and show you where they will harvest fat and place fat. The regions the doctors consider for fat harvesting are:

  • Outer thighs
  • Love handles
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Flank
  • Inner thighs
  • Calves

The surgery is simple and straightforward. Along with breast augmentation, patients also get body sculpting done, which gives them an aesthetic figure. The entire surgery takes 3 to 5 hours.
