Natural breast enhancement is a process by which fat is removed from an unwanted area and moved to the breasts to enhance their size and shape. As with all fat transfer procedures, the quality of the results depends upon the quality of the fat that is injected. Lumen Fill is a special process that we use to concentrate your own fat to make it especially pure and dense for the best possible enhancement.
Fat transfer makes the breasts look and feel as natural as possible because it is soft, organic and enduring, especially compared to artificial implants. Silicone and saline implants will likely need a revision every 10 years. Fat transfer also leaves little to no scarring and has a short recovery time, whereas implants require open surgery. A slimmer donor site (usually the flanks or abdomen) is an added benefit to a fat transfer breast enhancement.
At Lumen Center, Natural Breast Enhancement is minimally-invasive with small nicks (“freckle indents”) in the skin, no stitches and a tiny injection cannula. Local anesthesia is administered, similar to what is provided at a dentist office. Recovery time is fairly short with most patients back to work after 3-4 days.

We want you to feel comfortable and have the best experience possible. It’s why we take the time to educate you about what to expect before and after your procedure. Lumen Center patients are carefully monitored post-procedure and at regular checkpoints for up to a year.
The recovery process for the Natural Breast Enhancement is fairly short with most people only taking 3-4 days off from work with mild associated discomfort and bruising. A compression garment must be worn over the areas where the fat was taken for one month.
