Not satisfied with the size and/or shape of your breasts? Then a combination breast augmentation via breast implants & fat transfer may be an excellent solution for you.
What is combined breast augmentation?
Combined breast augmentation is a simple procedure combining the ability of an implant to provide increased volume with the reshaping possibilities offered by fat grafting. The ability to camouflage the implant allows use of a premuscular, retrofascial pocket, avoiding the disadvantages and morbidity associated with retromuscular positioning.
If you happen to have extremely small breasts or thin subcutaneous fat, a general breast augmentation using breast implants is not enough. If you get breast implants using breast augmentation only, the breast implants may be visible or the skin may become wrinkled after an operation.
Not only does a combined breast augmentation make soft tissues thicker by grafting autologous fat, but it also makes your breasts more voluptuous and natural by inserting breast implants.
Breast augmentation can now be performed by taking unwanted fat from one area of your body and transferring it to your breasts, typically the tummy, thighs, or flanks (love handles) — and inject it into your breasts.
A combined breast augmentation gives you the opportunity to fulfil your wish of having more beautiful breasts. JW’s plastic surgeons only work with the safest and most thoroughly tested breast implants and would be happy to talk you through the various aspects involved in breast augmentation.

The advantages to using fat transfer and a breast implant at the same time are numerous:
It provides a fuller breast with an implant but uses fat transfer to conceal the implant.
It can potentially improve cleavage in wide-set breasts, or in breast augmentations where implants sit far apart. We can correct asymmetrical breasts by inserting different sizes of breast implants. In addition, combination breast surgery performed with precise fat transfer can correct asymmetrical breasts more precisely.
For a fat transfer to the breasts, fat is collected from the abdomen or thighs. In addition, this procedure is effective for reducing cellulites of the abdomen or thighs.
A combined breast augmentation allows for natural movements whenever you stand up, lie down, or take other poses and makes your breasts more elastic.
1. Those who have extremely small breasts or thin subcutaneous fat
If there is a high probability that the inserted breast implants may be seen due to extremely small breasts or thin subcutaneous fat, we also conduct fat transfer for more natural-looking breasts.
2. Those who have pigeon breasts or wide breastbones (sternum)
If you have pigeon breasts, you cannot attain a beautiful cleavage solely though breast implants.
Cleavage is an important element for femininity. Many women who are willing to undergo a breast augmentation want beautiful and natural-looking cleavage.
If you have wide sternum or pigeon breasts, you cannot attain natural-looking cleavage solely through breast implants.
In this case, we graft fat into the cleavage to create beautiful cleavage and voluptuous breasts.
3. Those whose nipples are overly distant from each other
If you have wide-set breasts, situating the breast implants closer to the center is not enough to correct the breast shape.
It may instead make the nipples look more distant from each other.
In this case, we apply combined breast augmentation to adjust the center of the nipples and breast implants and then correct the breast asymmetry with fat transfer. This way, we correct wide-set breasts.

Beautiful cleavage project: Combined breast augmentation
If you have wide sternum, pigeon breasts, or wide-set breasts, it is difficult to create natural-looking cleavage. In combined breast augmentation, autologous fat is grafted to the empty part between the breasts to create natural-looking cleavage.
Step 1: Secure space for breast implants using endoscopy machine and predict the expected breast shape and size using a sizer.
Step 2: Reinforce soft tissues with fat transfer
Step 3: Select and insert the most suitable breast implants, considering the expected breast size and shape.
Step 4: Transfer more fat to the breasts if necessary.
