Cosmetic Breast Augmentation without Silicone Implants Abstract. Cosmetic breast augmentation procedures without silicone implants are becoming increasingly popular. Mastopexy can be adapted to the needs of the patient and usually result in an at least optical augmentation. Lipofilling is a safe procedure in reconstructive and aesthetic breast surgery and can help to restore natural appearance, compensate volume deficiencies, and correct asymmetries, that may be congenital or a consequence of prior surgeries. Cosmetic breast augmentation of very small breasts or when aiming at higher breast volumes using lipofilling only are usually combined with procedures for tissue expansion in order to increase the take rate of the injected fat. Hyaluronic acid injections is no valid alternative and are not recommended for cosmetic breast augmentation.
