"Your Own fat, Relocated"
The latest kind of recycling has nothing to do with soda bottles, according to a recent New York Times article. Instead, it concerns your body fat. Wherever it may be thighs, butt, tummy, surgeons are now liposuctioning it and injecting into breasts for clients who wish to enlarge their breasts without going the silicone route.
The procedure isn't new. Infact, in the early nineties it was completely condemned but currently is generating a new wave of excitement. Recently the Plastic Surgery Society announced that this procedure "can be considered a safe method of augmentation" and doctors have discussed the fact that the only way to create a natural-looking breast is to use your own body's tissue.
Of course their are risks involved. Such as the fact that injected fat can cause mammograms to be offset and misread. Also, the likelihood fat will survive being suctioned out, and transplanted is sometimes low. However, as the procedure becomes more popular, surgeons are becoming more advanced in their techniques.
My opinion- silicone or not, it's still unnatural. However, I do recognize that everybody's insecurities are different and maybe women like the idea of not having to put something foreign into their breasts to make them larger. Even if it is say FAT.
