MARCH 2019 SPECIALS: SEE DETAILS
Have you ever contemplated getting a breast augmentation but were hesitant about surgery? Or perhaps you’re put off by the idea of implants? Then you may want to consider the hottest new trend in cosmetic and reconstructive breast enhancement: the revolutionary Adivive™ Fat Transfer, from Palomar Medical, which uses your own excess fat to create fuller breasts that look and feel 100% natural–because they are!
How Does it Work?
In fat transfer or “fat grafting,” fat is taken from one part of the body, such as the upper arms, abdomen, back, flanks or thighs, and injected into an area where more fat is desired, such as the breasts, buttocks or face. Traditional fat transfer methods have been viewed as unpredictable and often lead to disappointing results. The new Adivive Fat Transfer method is groundbreaking in that its all-in-one system removes excess fluids and oils from the donor fat, creating higher quality fat grafts that deliver more long-lasting volumes. In studies, Adivive delivers a 70-80% fat survival rate for a long-lasting outcome.One of the most attractive aspects of the Advive Fat Transfer to the Breasts is that it can be combined with SlimLipo body sculpting. So if you are also seeking a firmer abdomen, contoured thighs or a tighter butt, you can get that as well–a two-for-one goal instantly achieved.
Three Adivive Fat Transfer Candidates, ages 36, 43, 56?
Cheryl, 36: I love being a new mom, but I am very disheartened about my new body. I just stopped nursing. My breasts are all stretched out, and so is my belly. I have always been happy with my small breasts and don’t want a major boob job, but I would love if I could get the look of my old breasts back and get rid of my bigger tummy all in one swoop. My main concern is that I am very busy with my new baby, and don’t have time for any sort of cosmetic procedure.“
I often use the Adivive Fat Transfer as part of my “Mommy Makeover,” said board-certified plastic surgeon James. R. Lyons, MD. “This procedure is great for restoring a sagging breast by filling the “empty” skin envelope that often develops once a woman has stopped breastfeeding and her milk supply is depleted.”
The Mommy Makeover may combine Adivive Fat Transfer to the Breasts with either a mini tummy tuck or full tummy tuck. SlimLipo and stretchmark treatments are often added as well. Since the appearance of the breasts is as much affected as the abdomen in pregnancy, this technique is clearly a global improvement for moms who are looking to restore their bodies to their pre-pregnancy appearance.
Andrea, 43: I am a newly divorced mother of two. I need to dive back into the workforce and want to start dating. But when I look in the mirror, I am not that psyched about my body. I have always wanted bigger breasts but am just not the type to go for implants–I like a more natural look. I am very curious about Adivive Fat Transfer to the Breasts and want to know more of what’s involved.“
Fears of general anesthesia are removed since the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, with oral sedation,” said Dr. Lyons. “The patient is awake during the 1-hour procedure but completely comfortable. As with breast augmentatiion with implants, the Adivive results are immediately apparent. Since the fat is a true graft of tissue, the “take” status affecting the breast volume will be fully realized after 3 months. For this age group, this gentle, more conservative improvement in breast aesthetics by using fat is usually what I see my patients wanting.”
Sandy, 56 – I take pride in the fact that I work out regularly at the gym. But ever since menopause, my body has undergone changes that are beyond my control. My breasts seem to have shriveled to a smaller size. And no matter what exercises I do, I have developed stubborn spots–my upper arms have developed “bat wings.” My husband and I were invited to a black-tie event in a few months, and I would just love to wear my favorite low-cut, sleeveless red gown. I have always been hesitant about going under the knife, but am curious about less invasive treatments.
“The Adivive Fat Transfer is a perfect choice for a woman who wants improvement in her breasts, and has folds in her arms that occur with age,” said Dr. Lyons. “We can improve and slenderize the arms with SlimLipo and then use the fat to reshape the breasts to be more youthful and perky.”
Is Adivive Fat Transfer to the Breasts Right For You?
In figuring out if the Advive Fat Transfer system is right for you, you’ll want to contemplate a few things. First off, this procedure can increase your breast size by approximately 1-cup size per session. If you are seeking a larger enhancement, than a traditional breast augmentation with an implant or another transfer of fat procedure may be necessary. Ultimately, you’ll want to schedule a consultation with an experienced physician who is skilled in both techniques to help you achieve the results you desire.
Plastic surgeon Dr. James R. Lyons has carried out 1000s of breast augmentations using traditional breast implant surgery and more recently, fat transfer. He is considered Westchester and Connecticut’s leading expert on the Adivive system.
