What is Auto Augmentation?

Despite continual reassurances about the safety of certain breast implants – especially silicone, which has been used for over 30 years – “scare stories” mean that women often feel uncertain about any type of implant. For many, however, this dilemma has come to an end. According to British cosmetic surgeon Laurence Kirwan, it is now possible to use existing breast tissue (auto augmentation) to provide the “lift” and fuller contours that many women seek.

Well known as a pioneer of new surgical procedures, Laurence Kirwan has further developed the recent techniques of two of his peers – Giovanni Botti in Italy and Ruth Maria Graf in Brazil – so that women with adequate breast tissue can now have breast surgery without an implant.

Women whose breasts have drooped – after breast-feeding, weight loss or through the normal ageing process – usually need a breast lift to eliminate excess skin, plus an implant to provide volume. However, when there is sufficient tissue, Kirwan combines the internationally renowned procedures of Botti and Graf with some of his own techniques, to create a natural augmentation.

Auto Augmentation after Breast Implant Removal

Many women ‘age-out’ of their breast implants or simply choose to have them removed. Simply removing the implants can create a deflated flat breast with sagging and loss of upper pole fullness. Many of these women are past childbirth and may have put on weight and increased their breast size since their original procedure. A breast lift using the lower part of the breast as an auto-augmentation can restore upper pole loss and recreate a tear-drop shape. Fat injections can also be used to further contour and enhance the breast.
