Hybrid Breast Augmentation: How To Solve The Zero Size Problem

Methods of breast augmentation with surgery

According to statistics, 24% of women in the world are not satisfied with the size of their breasts and 16% are ready to enlarge them with the help of a plastic surgeon. Among them, almost 30% are not breast size, which is considered a difficult case in plastic surgery. How realistic is this and what methods are used to enlarge breasts with a size of zero?

Indeed, the emergence of this method gave a chance to realize their dream of big breasts for those who could not be helped before. When the girl is her second, or at least first, breast size, you can stretch the skin and place an implant. In girls with a breast size of zero, many surgeons refused to perform the operation. The implant placement was not possible due to the non-aesthetic result - the breast would look like a sphere covered with skin.

What is a hybrid correction?

In the beginning, liposuction occurred - a method of removing excess fatty tissue from problem areas: thighs, abdomen, waist. In addition, doctors began experiments that showed that fat is well-rooted and can be used as donor material for various body shapes in areas where extra volume is required.

This is how lipofilling, which formed the basis of the hybrid technology, came about. During hybrid correction, the patient's previously absorbed fat is used to create a conditional frame or "pillow" along the contour of the implant so that it doesn't feel like something separated from the touch. This avoids the notorious taut ball effect. This means that the implant is “surrounded” by soft fat and looks very natural! After the edema goes away and the real result can be assessed, the breast will look natural and feel soft.

Normally, specialists perform lipofilling right away, along with breast augmentation, in one operation that takes around 2-3 hours. However, there are also cases in which the implant is installed directly for the first time, a reduction in edema and the appearance of the real contours of the new breast are expected. It takes about a month, after which you can safely frame the breast with fat.

You need to understand that size zero is a completely flat chest with only the nipples sticking out on it.

Hybrid correction advantage

If it is still possible to solve the lack of skin problem (the skin is stretched), you still need to consider that the skin is stretching exactly to the size of the implant. And the implant itself is clearly visible and feels to the touch. If you fill the breasts lightly with fat, the volume will increase and the implant will be hidden under the layer of fat for a more natural breast.

Who is this technology for?

First of all, it is recommended for women who lack their own layer of fat on the breasts and a few mammary glands that are responsible for breast volume - this is the infamous "zero" size. You need to understand that size zero is an absolutely flat chest with only nipples sticking out (depending on the child's physique).

In the past, many surgeons have refused to operate on girls with a breast size of zero.

If you simply insert an implant with such physiological properties in a woman, the implant will be clearly visible down to the contours after the tissue edema has subsided. For example, it will be felt in the anterior armpit area, and this is not only not aesthetically pleasing, but also causes physical discomfort for the patient herself. Imagine that you clearly feel a foreign body within you, both physically and physicallyemotionally disturbs. However, nothing else can be done with the classic augmentation method - there is no fatty tissue and the implant is only covered by skin.

How does the operation work?

First, the surgeon removes fat from places on the body that are normally abundant - these are deposits of fat on the sides, stomach, thighs, knees, or arms. Next, the surgeon makes an incision in a designated access area that is negotiated separately with the patient. Access is possible via the contour of the nipple, in the armpit or in the fold under the breast. Then the tissues of the gland and pectoral muscle become detached - this happens to create a conditional "pocket" in which the implant will be placed.

In addition, the fat collected during liposuction is separated - it is purified from plasma and other blood derivatives. The cleaned mass is then injected through a special thin needle along the contour of the implant.

Usually such a manipulation is enough to achieve a stable and long-lasting result. In very rare cases, fat can be removed. In this case, a second operation is prescribed.

The main advantage of this method is the beautiful aesthetic effect and the patient's comfort afterwards. After the hybrid correction, the breasts look very natural and are difficult to distinguish from natural by touch.

Recovery period

From the moment of the operation, primary rehabilitation is carried out for the first two weeks or a little longer. At this point the woman cannot work, so she has to be on sick leave. The pain is present for the first two to three days after the manipulation, but at the same time it can be easily eliminated with anesthetics. After three days, the patient can return home, strictly following the surgeon's recommendations.

Two weeks later, an examination and removal of stitches is planned. At this point, the woman generally gets used to new forms, the initial discomfort passes. You can start exercising in a gentle mode, which relieves pressure on the shoulders and chest area. Do not lift heavy kettlebells or make sudden movements.

In addition, the patient should always wear special compression clothing for the first month - this helps to determine the correct anatomical position of the new breast.

You can admire the end result in around 5 to 6 months, when the hidden edema subsides and tissue sensitivity is fully restored.
