MANHASSET, N.Y., Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Frederick N. Lukash, MD, FACS, FAAP, a senior associate at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group and New York Plastic Surgical Group, is redefining surgical options for women with breast issues, both cosmetic and reconstructive, by utilizing their own fat to build volume and improve shape. Fat transfer creates natural volume, and what's even better, is that this fat can be taken from virtually anywhere on the body. Fat grafting capacity is 1:1, so women seeking this procedure should be advised that it is a gradual process.
Utilizing the BRAVA system of external expansion, Dr. Lukash is able to place fat into an enlarged breast space with precision and safety. The BRAVA device can be described as a vacuum-like suction cup. This "dome" is worn externally as a bra. It sits on top of the breast with negative suction applied to it. This technique can even be applied to radiated tissues.
Fat Transfer and BRAVA expansion offers exciting possibilities for those with abnormally shaped breasts, those who do not want breast implants, and especially those women facing breast reconstruction after mastectomy looking to avoid major flap reconstructions or implants.
As long as you have fat to spare, you are a candidate.
