"I can't recommend Dr. Ho and his staff enough. He is the only person I have trusted to touch my face with injections or fillers. He always keeps you looking natural but just like a better you! I don't want to look like I'm "trying" too hard! I want to look like best version of me for my age. Recently I did a series of 3 Plasma Pen treatments. I am very happy with the results. He says I will continue to see results for a few months as things tighten and the collagen does its work. There was very minimal downtime involved and no pain. Within a few days I could cover the area with makeup and go about my business. All in all I highly recommend this treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Autologous FAT Breast Augmentation?
The decision regarding whether or not to have breast enlargement surgery is personal. If you are thinking about having this surgery, it is important you do it for yourself. You should be healthy and at a normal weight with breasts that are fully developed and be the appropriate age to have implants. If you are unhappy with the size of your chest because they look flat, you may benefit from this cosmetic breast treatment. In addition, if your breasts have changed due to aging, nursing, or weight loss, this surgical procedure can bring them back to life with increased volume. You may also need a breast lift. It is a welcomed answer if you work out with weights or have an overall lack of natural breast mass.
How is Autologous fat grafting to the breast performed?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Aliano Messina, we will decide on the target area(s) for fat removal. The procedure will be performed in a certified facility under general anesthesia. Tumescent fluid for liposuction will be infiltrated into the subcutaneous tissues of the fat donor site through a small incision. Then we will utilize a cannula to remove the unwanted fat, which will then be purified and transferred to the breasts. In this way, fat from the thighs, stomach, or buttocks can be used to improve your chest. Depending on the size and number of targeted areas, the procedure can typically last anywhere from 2 – 4 hours.
What Results Can I Expect?
Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient surgery with the patient under general anesthesia. Each patient will be taken into recovery and monitored before being released. You will be sent home wearing an Ace wrap or surgical bra. Several days after surgery, the swelling and bruising will start to decrease, and the breasts will begin to feel normal as they fall into their new position. Most patients can return to normal activities within several days; however, physical exertion, such as exercise, should be delayed for about 6 – 8 weeks. In most cases, this procedure can be a life-changer for many patients, allowing them the opportunity to feel more confident.
