Breast Enhancement Procedures Offered at Re-Nova Plastic Surgery
Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez provides a variety of breast surgery procedures to his Pittsburgh patients, including breast augmentation, natural breast augmentation (using fat transfer), breast lift and breast augmentation with lift. The natural breast augmentation procedure uses unwanted fat pockets from other areas of a woman's body and refines and injects the fat into the breast for fuller yet natural-looking breasts. This safe and effective procedure has the benefit of two procedures in one: the slimming effects of fat removal and the plumping effects of a breast enhancement procedure.
Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez also offers his patients the choice of having a traditional breast augmentation, which uses saline or silicone implants to add fullness to the bust. For this procedure, implant options include the choice of shape (round or anatomical), texture (smooth or textured), placement (under or over the chest muscle) and incision location (areola, breast fold or under the arm).
