The Breast Implants of the Future Could Partially Come from Your Butt

That's not exactly the way a new technique in breast augmentation works, but pioneering plastic surgeons are now indeed grafting fat from other parts of women's bodies and repurposing it as implants.

Thanks to a combo of fat grafting and the usual silicon/salt water implants, doctors are saying augmentation and breast reconstruction can be more natural and more real-boob-looking than ever before.

The procedure, which is already available to interested parties, was discussed by surgeons from South America to France at the first annual Composite Breast Workshop this week in New York.

"This isn't only the future (of breast augmentation), this is the present," Dr. Stafford R. Broumand, MD, who received his medical degree from Yale University and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, told Cosmopolitan.com.

While breast implants combined with fat grafting doesn't last any longer (yep, you still may need to get them replaced), it gives the implant an overall softer, more natural look.

"Over time, implants become more visible, so this is a way to combine your fat to smooth and contour," explains Dr. Broumand.

And don't think you need to have an extra inch to pinch to be applicable for this procedure. Dr. Broumand says thin women are just as much in the running.

"You can take a large volume from any one area without changing the shape," says Dr. Broumand.

He adds that the new method is not much more expensive than the usual breast implants. So we can either consider this, or keep hoping our boobs will one day magically start looking like Kate Upton's.
