Breast Reconstruction With Your Belly Fat Using Brava – TWO FOR ONE DEAL
MIAMI, Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Roger K. Khouri, MD, FACS from the Miami Breast Center is giving women back their natural breasts through a unique breast reconstruction technique known as Micro-Fat Transfer. Patients are extremely satisfied with the procedure that builds an entire breast from your own fat without having to undergo another major surgery. The success of this procedure lies in the use of the Brava system.
Brava System – The Brava is a soft, gel-like bra that attaches directly to the breast, an external breast tissue expander. It applies low but continuous suction to the breast area over several weeks. The patient wears it at night while sleeping. It is not painful.
Two important factors make Brava unique. First, its ability to create an adequate vascular matrix into which the liposuctioned fat is later injected. This is important because without the adequate matrix the transferred fat would not survive. And second, the expansion of tissues and nerves increases blood flow to the mastectomy area. This allows the patient to keep almost normal sensation in her breasts and nipples. Plus they look and feel normal.
Liposuction – The procedure extracts your fat through liposuction. These micro-fat grafts are harvested by gentle liposuction from the patient’s belly, thighs, and buttocks — wherever there is fat to spare. Using only injections, the fat is meticulously injected back into the breast site that has been enlarged by the Brava expansion. There is no cutting, no new scars, no implants.
Minimally Invasive – Patients who worry about another major surgery don’t have to. Dr. Khouri’s technique is performed as an outpatient procedure. The patient goes home the same day. Women who were hesitant about breast reconstruction after mastectomy are attracted to this procedure because of the lower risks, faster recovery, and natural results.
Two for One Deal – Who hasn’t thought of the possibility of taking a little fat from here and putting it there? The liposuction required to harvest the fat will be a bonus to the patient’s overall body contour.
The breast cancer journey is an emotional one. Women want to feel whole again and reclaim what is theirs. Thanks to science, there are a few options. But frankly, most of the popular options don’t look or feel natural.
Here’s what a 32-year-old cancer victim had to say after having Dr. Khouri’s procedure, “It reminds me of when I was a teenager, watching my breasts grow — and it’s my own breast.”
This innovative procedure is the very first that facilitates reconstruction of an ENTIRE breast from fat without major surgery.
Dr. Khouri has done clinical studies to prove the safety and efficacy of his procedure and has presented these studies at all the important medical conferences across the globe, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Annual Convention. He conducts fat grafting courses where he trains plastic surgeons from around the world on his innovative breast techniques. The procedure is covered by insurance for breast cancer patients.
