I'm considering breast augmentation but want them to look and feel natural-- can you explain what can be done to ensure this?

Multiple factors: Bring in pictures to let your doctor know what your definition of natural looking is. Lots of patients may tell me they want a natural look but in fact really want a full augmented look. In general , using smaller silicone implants that are placed under the muscle will produce the most natural feeling and looking results.

Fat injection breast: Yes, you can have fat injection performed, but this will probably not give you the size you're looking for. Most breast augmentation patients are thin, and just don't have enough fat for transfer. In addition, the amount of fat which "takes" is variable, and many patients require a second procedure. For most patients, implants are a more reliable and aesthetic option. ...Read more

Can you get breast augmentation with fat instead of silicone?

Yes, but...: There is increasing scientific literature showing how fat can be used for breast augmentation, but there are some valid concerns about the doing so.

Larger, longer term studies will be needed. ...Read more

If you are anorexic as a teen but then start eating again, will you be able to grow to your height potential and will your boobs get bigger?

Varies a lot: Whether or not an ex-anorexic older teen can achieve her genetically pre-destined height and breast size depends on how malnourished she was, how long she was anorexic, when her genetically programmed growth teen growth spurt was, and how her weight and nutrition are now.

For example, about half to 2/3 of transferred fat dies, leaving scars and/or calcifications, which could delay or misdiagnose breast cancer. Implants are still the best, safest, and proven ways to enlarge breasts! ...Read more
