Typically, most women who are wanting to change the size and shape of their breasts look to breast augmentation surgery, which requires the placement of an implant either over or under the muscle. But, there is another way enhance the breasts that you may not know much about.

Las Vegas plastic surgeon Mike Edwards, MD, says that in the United States, the only thing that should be injected into the breast is a patient’s own fat. “To my knowledge, there is no FDA-approved product to inject into the breast for enhancement. Fat injection into the breast offers a modest change in size. And, it can be used for improvement in a breast cancer reconstruction patient without the need or use of an implant,” he says.
