Unique cosmetic surgery moves body fat to breasts
A technique known as Brava/AFT (autologous fat transfer), a unique method for both breast augmentation and reconstruction was featured in the May issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official journal of the American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The six-year study, which focused on breast augmentation only, presented results of Brava/AFT on 81 patients. According to its conclusion, the method “led to significantly larger breast augmentations, with more fat graft placement, higher graft survival rates and minimal graft necrosis or complications.”
With more options available today for breast augmentation, KFWB’s Maggie McKay and Michael Shappee spoke with Dr. Grant Stevens, medical director of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates in Marina del Rey, who detailed some of the various options.
