New breast augmentation method in use

A British born plastic surgeon has developed a new method of breast augmentation.

Dr Laurence Kirwan, who trained in the UK, has successfully used the treatment on women at his Harley Street clinic.

Between 20 and 30 per cent of women who apply are found to be suitable for the procedure, which does not involve the insertion of any foreign material.

Instead, the doctor takes the breast gland from the lower part of a woman's chest and moves it to above her nipple in order to give a fuller appearance.

Prior to the development of the procedure, implants were one of the only options available for women wanting larger breasts.

The doctor also offers nipple reduction which involves segmenting the nipple in a way which preserves sensation while still providing the desired size.

Auto-augmentation will be presented as a new technique to a group of plastic surgeons in America after Dr Kirwan was invited to showcase his technique in the US by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
