Breast Implants are also generally associated as a one of highest satisfaction rates of all cosmetic surgery procedures.
By far the most common way is to place silicone or saline breast implants. However, fat can be transferred from other areas, such as the waist or abdomen, to the breasts for breast enlargement or breast augmentation. Since fat is the patient’s own “natural” tissue, fat transfer to the breast has been termed “Natural Breast Augmentation” or “Natural Breast Implantation”.
To fully understand the difference between breast implantation with silicone breast implants and breast augmentation with fat transfer to the breasts, it is important to read the section on breast implantation.

Breast Surgeon Reviews are Important
Make sure you review pictures of the surgeon’s work on previous patients, but clearly understand that this does not guarantee you the same result. It’s also beneficial to ask around to research breast surgeon reviews from other patients. It is also helpful to make sure all your questions are answered to your satisfaction.
It is surprising to me that patients will often “bargain shop” when considering plastic surgery. When your health and final appearance are at stake, this is no time to be cheap. Certainly there is some “hype” in plastic surgery and some plastic surgeons are definitely overpriced. However, price difference among surgeons should not be a major factor in choosing your surgeon. The results of your surgery are highly surgeon dependent and it is extremely foolish to make your choice based on price alone.
Finally, it is important to get to know the surgeon. It is critical that you like the surgeon and that the surgeon likes you. Generally, you should have a good, positive feeling about your surgeon. You need to feel that the surgeon has your best interests at heart and that your surgeon is a genuinely caring and kind individual, who is also skilled and highly trained.
