What is Hybrid Breast Augmentation?

Hybrid Breast Augmentation is performed by experienced and skilled professionals such as Dr Frati who specialise in hybrid breast augmentation itself. Their expertise, coupled with the utilisation of this advanced procedure, ensures that patients receive outstanding results tailored to their individual needs and desires. With its ability to combine the advantages of breast implants and fat transfer, hybrid breast augmentation provides a comprehensive solution for patients seeking to enhance their breasts. The procedure has gained a reputation for its effectiveness in achieving desirable volume, upper pole fullness, and enhanced cleavage.

To achieve optimal results in breast augmentation, it is essential to consider the coverage of the implant by the surrounding soft tissue, particularly in thin patients with minimal breast tissue and tight skin. In such cases, relying solely on implants may not yield the desired aesthetic outcome, despite improvements in breast volume and projection. This is primarily because the edges of the implant can be challenging to conceal in patients with thin soft tissue, which is more commonly observed in slim women. The imbalance between the size of the implant and insufficient soft tissue coverage can also result in the palpability of implant edges and noticeable skin rippling, leading to unsatisfactory cosmetic results.

Over time, surgeons have employed various techniques to better address the issue of hiding implant edges in slim patients. One approach involves placing the implants beneath the chest wall muscle, known as the dual plane technique. This method increases the amount of soft tissue between the implant and the skin, offering improved coverage. Furthermore, fourth-generation implants with advanced features have been developed to minimize issues such as rippling and capsular contracture.

Surgeons have also drawn inspiration from breast reconstruction procedures, utilising supportive scaffold materials to provide adequate support to the soft tissue and mitigate complications associated with thin patients undergoing implant-based breast augmentation. However, these approaches have shown limitations in terms of cost-effectiveness and consistency in achieving consistently satisfactory outcomes, hindering their widespread adoption. It is crucial for patients and surgeons to carefully consider these factors when planning breast augmentation in slim patients, aiming to achieve the most favourable and predictable results.

At Harley street Surgery in London, Dr Frati and his team have extensive experience in performing fat transfer breast augmentation, and they have now utilised their expertise to combine it with breast augmentation using implants. This innovative approach, known as hybrid breast augmentation, aims to achieve more natural-looking results and effectively conceal the edges of the implants through the injection of fat.

Hybrid breast augmentation has become a commonly performed procedure at our centre due to its ability to optimise breast volume and contour the surrounding soft tissues. By combining breast implants and fat transfer, Dr Frati has precise control over reshaping the breasts, resulting in enhanced aesthetic outcomes. This technique is particularly beneficial for patients with limited soft tissue coverage, as it addresses the limitations of using implants alone in individuals with poor tissue support.

Additionally, hybrid breast augmentation is an excellent option for correcting breast asymmetry in patients with uneven breasts. The combination of both techniques allows surgeons to utilise smaller breast implants, as the fat transfer contributes to volume enhancement. This not only helps achieve a more harmonious breast appearance but also reduces the associated risks compared to using larger implants.

If you are seeking natural-looking results and improved breast contour, hybrid breast augmentation may be an ideal treatment option. Dr Frati is dedicated to providing personalised care and exceptional outcomes using this advanced technique.

Hybrid Breast Augmentation Step by Step Guide

For a basic guide to Hybrid Breast Augmentation, step by step, then follow this guide below. This is a general description and each procedure individual to your needs.

  • Anaesthesia: The first step in a hybrid breast augmentation procedure is the administration of anaesthesia. The patient will be placed under general anaesthesia or, in some cases, local anaesthesia with sedation. The choice of anaesthesia will depend on the surgeon’s recommendation and the patient’s preferences.

  • Incision: The surgeon will make an incision in a location that has been discussed and planned with the patient. Common incision sites include under the breast crease (inframammary), around the areola (periareolar), or in the armpit (transaxillary).

  • Implant placement: If silicone or saline breast implants are part of the plan, the surgeon will create a pocket either above or below the pectoral muscle. The surgeon will carefully insert the chosen implant through the incision.

  • Fat Grafting: In the hybrid breast augmentation procedure, the surgeon will use liposuction to harvest fat from another area of the patient’s body (e.g., abdomen, thighs). The collected fat is processed and purified.

  • Fat Injection: The surgeon will inject the purified fat into the breast tissue to enhance the shape, contour, or cleavage area as desired. Fat grafting allows for more customisation and natural-looking results.

  • Closing Incisions: Once the implants are in place and the fat grafting is complete, the surgeon will close the incisions using sutures. Dissolvable or removable stitches may be used, and surgical tape or adhesive may be applied.

  • Recovery: After the procedure, the patient will be monitored in the recovery area. It’s common to wear a supportive surgical bra for several weeks to help with healing and minimise swelling. Patients are typically able to return home the same day or after a brief observation period.

What are common reasons to get Hybrid Breast Augmentation?

Hybrid breast augmentation, which combines traditional breast implants with fat grafting, is chosen by individuals for various reasons. Common motivations for opting for this procedure include:

1. Desire for Natural-Looking Results: Many people prefer a more natural and subtle breast enhancement that closely mimics the feel and appearance of real breast tissue. Fat grafting can help achieve a softer, more natural contour.

2. Customisation: Hybrid breast augmentation allows for a higher degree of customisation. It enables the surgeon to fine-tune the shape, fullness, and symmetry of the breasts by using fat grafting in addition to implants.

3. Improved Cleavage: Fat grafting can be used strategically to enhance cleavage, creating a more attractive and defined décolletage.

4. Correcting Asymmetry: Some individuals have natural breast asymmetry, and hybrid breast augmentation can address this by adding more volume to one breast than the other as needed.

5. Minimising Implant Visibility: Fat grafting can help conceal implant edges or rippling that may occur with traditional breast implants, resulting in a more natural look and feel.

6. Reducing Implant Size: For those who desire a more modest increase in breast size, using fat grafting alongside implants can provide a balanced and less dramatic outcome.

7. Repairing Breast Deformities: Hybrid breast augmentation can be used to correct breast deformities or irregularities, such as tuberous breasts, Poland syndrome, or breast reconstruction after mastectomy.

8. Enhancing Previous Augmentations: Some individuals choose hybrid augmentation to enhance or revise a previous breast augmentation, improving shape and addressing issues like capsular contracture or implant malposition.

9. Minimising Scarring: Since the incisions used for fat grafting are generally smaller, this approach can result in less noticeable scarring compared to traditional augmentation procedures.

10. Using Excess Fat: Patients may choose hybrid breast augmentation as a way to utilise excess fat from other areas of the body, providing a double benefit of body contouring and breast enhancement in one procedure.

It’s important to note that the suitability of hybrid breast augmentation depends on an individual’s unique anatomy and goals. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Frati is essential to discuss the options, understand the potential outcomes, and determine the best approach based on the patient’s specific needs and expectations.

Is Hybrid Breast Augmentation Right for me?

Determining whether hybrid breast augmentation is right for you depends on various factors, including your personal goals, anatomy, and expectations. To make an informed decision, you should schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can assess your specific case and provide personalised recommendations. Here are some considerations to discuss with your surgeon during your consultation:

1. Cosmetic Goals: Clearly communicate your goals and expectations for the procedure. Discuss the size, shape, and overall appearance you desire for your breasts. This will help your surgeon recommend the most appropriate approach.

2. Existing Breast Tissue: Your natural breast anatomy plays a significant role in the decision. Your surgeon will assess the amount of breast tissue you have, the quality of your skin, and the condition of your chest muscles. These factors will influence whether implants, fat grafting, or a combination is recommended.

3. Breast Implant Choice: If you are considering implants, discuss your options for implant type (silicone or saline), size, shape, and placement (above or below the muscle). Your surgeon can help you make choices that align with your goals and body type.

4. Fat Availability: To perform fat grafting, you must have enough excess fat in areas like the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The surgeon will assess whether you have sufficient fat for the procedure.

5. Realistic Expectations: Ensure that your expectations are realistic. Hybrid breast augmentation can provide natural-looking results, but there are limits to how much volume can be added with fat grafting alone.

6. Health and Lifestyle: Be prepared to discuss your overall health, any medical conditions, and lifestyle factors that could impact the procedure, such as smoking, which may affect healing.

7. Risks and Benefits: Discuss the potential risks and complications associated with hybrid breast augmentation, as well as the benefits. Your surgeon should provide a comprehensive overview to help you make an informed decision.

8. Recovery and Aftercare: Understand the recovery process, including post-operative care and any restrictions on physical activity during the healing period.

9. Cost: Clarify the total cost of the procedure, including any potential follow-up treatments or revisions. Determine the financing options available, as well as whether the procedure is covered by insurance (which is typically not the case for cosmetic breast augmentation).

Your surgeon will offer their expert opinion on whether hybrid breast augmentation is the right choice for you, or if a different approach may better suit your goals and anatomy. It’s crucial to choose a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon and to ask any questions or express any concerns you may have during your consultation to ensure that you are making an informed decision about your breast enhancement procedure.

    Usually, providing no complications, a standard breast uplift surgery takes from 2-3 hours to complete.

    Different Types of Breast Augmentation

    This procedure involves increasing breast size and enhancing shape using implants (silicone or saline) or fat grafting. It's often chosen by individuals looking for a fuller and more proportionate bust.

    Breast reduction surgery is performed to reduce the size and weight of the breasts. It's commonly sought by individuals with overly large breasts to alleviate physical discomfort and improve their quality of life.

    Also known as natural breast augmentation, this method uses liposuction to harvest fat from other parts of the body, which is then purified and injected into the breasts to add volume and contour, resulting in a more subtle and natural look.

    A combination of breast implants and fat grafting, hybrid breast augmentation allows for a personalised and natural-looking outcome. It involves inserting implants and using fat grafting to fine-tune the shape and achieve the desired results.

    A breast uplift is designed to raise and reshape sagging breasts. It involves removing excess skin, repositioning the nipple-areola complex, and giving the breasts a more youthful and perky appearance.

    This procedure is intended for individuals with enlarged male breast tissue, often caused by hormonal imbalances or genetics. It involves removing excess glandular tissue and fat to create a flatter and more masculine chest contour.

    Hybrid Breast Augmentation Benefits

    What are the benefits of Hybrid Breast Augmentation

    The combination of breast fat transfer and implant procedure offers numerous benefits in achieving optimal aesthetic outcomes. By incorporating fat transfer, the soft tissue surrounding the implant can be precisely augmented, effectively addressing any visibility of the implant edges beneath the skin. Skilled execution of the fat transfer procedure to the breast can effectively conceal the implant edges, offering a natural and seamless appearance. This advantage is especially valuable for slimmer patients seeking enhancement in upper pole fullness and improved cleavage.

    One significant advantage of hybrid breast augmentation is the flexibility it provides for implant placement in more superficial planes, such as the sub glandular plane. This eliminates the need to cut the muscle, as in the dual plane approach, when inserting the implant beneath it. Placing the implant beneath the muscle can potentially lead to long-term muscle weakness. Additionally, patients who engage in weightlifting exercises may face the risk of double-bubble deformity or animation deformity. The recovery period for dual-plane breast augmentation is also longer compared to placing the implants above the muscle. By opting for breast implants above the muscle combined with fat transfer, surgeons can effectively address mild degrees of breast sagging or ptosis.

    What are the Hybrid Breast Augmentation Risks?

    Like any form of cosmetic surgery, hybrid breast augmentation does carry risks that patients should be aware of in order to minimise the chances of complications occurring after the procedure.

    Some of the potential risks associated with hybrid breast augmentation include:

    1. Infection
    2. Post-operative bleeding
    3. Capsular contracture (scar tissue formation around the implant)
    4. Breast implant rupture
    5. Fat necrosis (death of fatty tissue)
    6. Breast asymmetry
    7. Temporary changes in nipple sensitivity

    When choosing to undergo hybrid breast augmentation at Harley Street Surgery, you can have confidence in receiving top-quality medical care from Dr Frati and his team. By diligently following all preoperative and postoperative care instructions, the risk of complications following hybrid breast augmentation can be significantly reduced.

    Hybrid Breast Augmentation Recovery

    The hybrid breast augmentation procedure is designed to minimise the recovery period after surgery. Dr Frati employs gentle techniques to reduce post-operative bruising and swelling. It is crucial to avoid strenuous physical activities for at least four weeks following the surgery. During the first week, it is recommended to sleep in a position with the head of the bed elevated at around 30°. This elevated position promotes faster resolution of post-operative swelling and aids in wound healing. Patients are advised to generally sleep on their back for at least 3 to 4 weeks after surgery to prevent implant malposition or premature fat loss.

    Following the postoperative recommendations is crucial, and once you do so, you can gradually resume normal activities. In most cases, patients can return to work after one week, as the majority of bruising and swelling will have subsided by then. However, it’s important to avoid strenuous gym activities for the first six weeks following the surgery. Wearing a well-fitting post-operative bra or a sports bra is recommended to help maintain the position of the implants.

    Once your pain has subsided and you no longer require painkillers, you may resume driving after two weeks post-op. However, it’s important to refrain from any breast massage for the first three weeks, as it may affect the results of the fat transfer.

    During the postoperative period, it is crucial to completely avoid all forms of smoking for at least four weeks. Active smoking poses a high risk of delayed wound healing and surgical site infection. Additionally, smoking can negatively impact the survival of the newly transferred fat cells. The amount of fat that survives in patients who smoke is significantly reduced, which may require a revision top-up procedure to restore the desired volume.
