NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Dr. Stafford R. Broumand, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City, offers patients who are seeking breast enhancement an alternative to traditional breast augmentation surgery with implants. With his natural breast augmentation technique, women can receive the benefits of breast enhancement by utilizing their own fat cells rather than silicone or saline implants. Additionally, Dr. Broumand also uses Brava -- a non-surgical, pre and post-operative regimen designed to achieve greater volume and fullness in the breasts.
Natural breast augmentation is designed to add volume to the breasts without the need for breast implants. Dr. Broumand performs this procedure by removing fat cells with liposuction from one area of the patient's body -- such as the abdomen, thighs, or love handles -- and transferring them to the breasts. According to the New York City plastic surgeon, ideal candidates for natural breast enhancement include:
The Brava regimen, originally developed by Roger Khouri, is a method of external expansion for the breasts. Suction cups are placed on each breast, and negative pressure increases breast size temporarily. After performing this process for three weeks prior to enhancement, patients develop more space for the transfer of fat cells during the natural breast augmentation procedure.
Unlike traditional tissue expanders, Brava is non-surgical. According to Dr. Broumand, Brava can be used for both breast augmentation and breast reconstruction, and the technique makes it possible to transfer more fat which can ultimately result in greater volume and fullness added to the breasts.
For his New York City plastic surgery patients undergoing natural breast augmentation with the Brava regimen, Dr. Broumand employs the following steps:
Ultimately, Dr. Broumand says his patients may find the Brava regimen to be a bit tedious, but he notes that "they generally believe it is worth it in the end." He adds that no matter what the procedure -- be it breast augmentation or BOTOX® Cosmetic -- patients should always consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure they receive the safest, most effective treatment and results.
