5 Weird New Breast Augmentation Procedures
From stem cells to Botox, strange new ways doctors are boosting our busts.
Breast Implants? So 1990’s. These days silicone isn’t the only substance being used to boost our busts. From stem cells to Botox, doctors are developing new augmentation methods that are breaking barriers in the plastic surgery world.
Here are five weird new boob jobs worth knowing about.
While noting that this method has only been around for about two years and isn’t yet widely used among plastic and reconstructive surgeons, Dr. Shahram Salemy, MD, FACS, and RealSelf.com Medical Expert, says with advances being made, “we’re now seeing outstanding, lasting results from this approach.” The doctor first performs liposuction to remove some fat from areas like the hips or the abdomen, filters and concentrates it, and then injects it into the breasts.
“This is a good option for women who are not interested in having implants, have some excess fat in other areas of their body, and want a fuller look to their breasts,” Dr. Salemy says. It can also be used to correct size discrepancies between the two breasts.
