Why Breast Implants Should Be A Thing of the Past—Atlanta's Best Natural Fat Transfer Augmentation
According to the National Center for Health Research, more than 310,000 women and teenagers had breast-enlargement surgery with saline or silicone implants in 2018, These numbers have tripled since 1997.
As of recent, the main worry linked to breast implants was that there was a potential risk of leaking. Nevertheless, a study conducted by Canadian and Israeli Universities has confirmed that almost 25% of patients that undergo implantation are at risk of autoimmune disease.
Jan Willem Cohen Tervaert, director of the Division of Rheumatology at the University of Alberta, establishes that the risk of a woman developing an autoimmune disease increases at a 45% rate if they've undergone breast implantation.
How Do Autoimmune Diseases Affect the Body?
The link between breast implants and autoimmune disorders is casually discussed in medical circles as the instant activation of your immune system when a foreign body (the implants) is put into it.
Simply put, an autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your own body.
Immune systems have the function of protecting your body against invasive bacteria and viruses. When it senses them, the immune system deploys 'fighter cells' to attack them.
The immune system can usually tell the difference between your cells or foreign cells. Yet, the entrance of a foreign body into your body can cause it to misfire, producing antibodies to attack healthy cells.
The Types of Autoimmune Diseases That Stem From Breast Implants
A recent study shows that silicone breast implants can induce the following types of autoimmune diseases:
- Sjögren's syndrome: salivary and tear autoimmune gland disorder.
- Systemic sclerosis: connective tissue affecting the skin, arteries and visceral organs autoimmune disorder
- Sarcoidosis: an autoimmune disease of the lung, skin, and lymph nodes.
If Not Breast Implants, then What?
Given the consequences of breast implants, most women are looking for minimally invasive procedures to reduce the number of potential risks when breast augmentation.
Therefore, the new trend on the market is natural breast augmentations, where fat from other areas of your body is used to contour your bust. A natural fat transfer is traditionally performed with liposuction; nevertheless, it's still considered to be quite invasive on the body.
In Atlanta, Elite Body Sculpture prides itself on bringing a luxurious and comfortable procedures thanks to the development of advanced AirSculpt® Technology.
Atlanta AirSculpt ®'s Natural Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
The AirSculpt® Up A Cup™ Breast Enhancement is a natural fat transfer breast augmentation that is minimally invasive. It does not require the use of a scalpel, needle, or general anesthetics.
The procedure begins with the AirPen, a squirt gun-like device that uses pressurized air to administer lidocaine, a numbing agent. The Elite Body Sculpture physician will then use a biopsy punch to create a tiny aperture 2 millimeters wide, so the AirSculpt® cannula can effectively and seamlessly extract fat from your 'trouble areas' cell by cell. The surgeon also tightens the skin during the fat extraction. Then, they repeat the aperture process on the breasts and use AirSculpt® technology to evenly contour the breasts into the fullness of your preference.
Side Effects of the AirSculpt® Up A Cup™ Breast Enhancement
First things first, the AirSculpt® Up A Cup™ Breast Enhancement will not result in an autoimmune disease, given that no foreign body is left in the body. It's just your fat being transferred from one area to another.
The side effects of an AirSculpt® Up A Cup™ Breast Enhancement are nothing to be worried about, thanks to the comfortable nature of AirSculpt® technology. At most, you'll feel mild pain post-procedure that can easily be controlled with commercial pain medications.
