An increasingly popular yet still under-the-radar cosmetic procedure is reverse liposuction which is an alternative for women who are undergoing breast implant removal. The procedure consists of exchanging breast implants for fat cells that are taken from the patients own body. The natural fat cells are used for reshaping of the breasts, creating volume, and a natural shape. The technique is referred to as simultaneous implant exchange with fat (SIEF).

Prior to surgery, the patient must undergo pre-expansion treatments. Gentle negative pressure is used through a vacuum to slowly expand the breast. This prepares the breast for the surgical procedure. During the surgery, liposuction is performed on thighs or abdomen to harvest fat cells. The fat is then injected into the space over the implants so the surgeon may sculpt and reshape the breast using the patients own fat cells. The implants are then removed and additional fat is injected. This may all be accomplished within one procedure but can usually require several procedures for repeat fat injection.

Reverse liposuction is a great alternative for women who plan to undergo implant removal but still want to maintain natural volume for their breast shape says Dr. Sam Speron, Chicago breast plastic surgeon and consumer advocate. It is a procedure that I feel will continually increase in occurrence due to the positive results that patients report. It can be performed with our without the breast expansion devices.

Dr. Speron is the founder and medical director of Dr. Speron Plastic Surgery, SC. He is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).
