Larger breasts without implants
Fat grafting or stem cells may offer an option in the future but currently the amount of size increase is limited and there is still no good long term data to be sure that fat grafting to the breast doesn't interfere with getting breast cancer or in detection of breast cancer.
The BRAVA approach is wishful thinking in my opinion as are other non-surgical approaches.
Only implants will do it

BA without implants/ Options/ Some advise:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
In my practice, I have had good results by doing breast augmentation with autologous fat transfer, that is, take fat from other body areas and fill the breasts.
I started developing this technique with colleagues in Brazil in breast reconstruction patients after breast cancer surgery, who had undergone complete resection of breast, for tumor removal.
Today I offer it as an alternative option to patients who wish breast augmentation without implants.
Among the advantages of this procedure it is that there is no chance of allergic reactions or foreign body reactions, because we use your own fat tissue, besides, you will be with augmented breasts and an another body area contoured (where the fat is removed).
On the other hand, this procedure can be performed if the patient have enough fat tissue to have adequate fat filling breasts, and there are some chances of breast asymmetry because there is a small percentage of fat absorbed, so the patient may need another breast fat filling session.
Finally, as you can see, this is a relatively new technique, which needs to be performed by a plastic surgeon with experience in this procedure, to get the best desired results.
