Majority of women are undergoing breast augmentation surgery or breast enlargement surgery in order to change the shape and size of the breasts or make them enlarge and to enhance their confidence.

Breast augmentation by using fat transfer surgery is the best treatment to give a moderate increase in the size of the breasts. But, the candidate should have nice shape and skin tone of the breasts. Those women who have sagging breasts or poor skin tone and want to enhance the size then fat transfer breast augmentation isn’t right option for them.

During the fat transfer procedure for augmenting the breasts, fat is taken from the area of the body having excess fatty deposits and transfer it to the volume-lacking breasts. For those women who have irregularities with their breast shape after undergoing a breast implant, fat grafting procedure is the right option to fill up these irregularities and gives finest contours and perfect shape.

Cosmetic Procedures

Liposuction Surgery:

Men and women from every field of life are getting the liposuction surgery to change their body appearance and to get a perfect contoured body. Liposuction is the safe and effective procedure in which excess unwanted stubborn fatty deposits are removed from different areas of the body such as abdomen, thighs, back, hips, upper arms, love handles, knees or neck. The liposuction treatment works best on those patients who failed to reduce excess fat from diet and exercise.

A new exciting advancement called SmartLipo Laser Liposuction has been made in the liposuction treatment. SmartLipo Laser Liposuction is a non-invasive and safe procedure that involves directing the laser energy from a device called SmartLipo in the targeted area that liquefies the fat cells and this fat is then suctioned away from the body. As the laser is used in SmartLipo treatment, the treated skin becomes tightened, contoured and firmed. The Smart Laser Lipo treatment results are visible and long-lasting but at the same time, you need to work on balanced, healthy diet and proper exercise regime to maintain the positive results.
