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 bust, and 16% are ready to enlarge it with the help of a plastic surgeon. Among them, almost 30% have zero breast size, which is considered a difficult case in plastic surgery. How realistic is this and what methods are used to enlarge breasts of zero size?

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

What is hybrid correction?

In the beginning, liposuction appeared - a method of removing excess adipose tissue from problem areas: thighs, abdomen, waist. Further, doctors began to conduct experiments that showed that fat takes root well and can be used as a donor material for various body shaping, in areas where additional volume is required.

This is how lipofilling appeared, which formed the basis of the hybrid technique. During the hybrid correction, with the help of the patient's previously taken fat, a conditional frame or “pillow” is created along the contour of the implant so that it does not feel like something separate to the touch. This avoids the notorious taut ball effect. That is, the implant is “surrounded” by soft fat and looks very natural! After the edema disappears, when the real result can be assessed, the breast looks natural and remains soft to the touch.

Usually, specialists perform lipofilling immediately, along with breast augmentation, in one operation, which lasts about 2-3 hours. But there are also cases when the implant is first installed directly, edema reduction 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 chest with fat.

You need to understand that size zero is a completely flat chest, on which only the nipples stand out.

Hybrid correction advantage

If it is still possible to resolve the issue with the lack of skin (the skin is stretched), you still need to keep in mind that the skin will stretch exactly to the size of the implant. And the implant itself will be clearly visible and noticeable to the touch. Filling the breasts with fat slightly adds volume and hides the implant under the fat layer for a more natural breasts.

Who is this technique for?

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

In the past, many surgeons refused to perform surgery on girls with zero breast size.

If you simply insert an implant with such physiological characteristics of a woman, then after the tissue edema subsides, the implant will become clearly visible, right down to the contours. For example, it will be noticeable in the anterior axillary region, and this is not only not aesthetically pleasing, but also causes physical discomfort to the patient herself. Imagine that you clearly feel a foreign body inside you, it bothers you, both physically and emotionally. However, with the classical method of augmentation, nothing else can be done - there is no adipose tissue and the implant is covered only by skin.

How is the operation going?

First, the surgeon removes fat from places on the body where it is usually abundant - these are fat deposits in the sides, abdomen, thighs, knees or on the arms. Next, the surgeon makes an incision in a specific access area, which is negotiated with the patient separately. Access is possible through the contour of the nipple, in the armpit or in the crease under the breast. Then there is a detachment of the tissues of the gland and pectoral muscle - this is done in order to form a conditional "pocket" where the implant is placed.

Further, the fat collected during liposuction undergoes separation - it is purified from plasma and other blood derivatives. Then the cleaned mass is injected through a special thin needle along the contour of the implant.

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

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

Recovery period

From the moment of the operation, the first two weeks or a little more takes primary rehabilitation. At this time, the woman will not be able to work, so she will have to take sick leave. As for pain, they are present in the first two to three days after the manipulation, but at the same time they are easily eliminated with anesthetic drugs. After three days, the patient can return home, subject to strict adherence to the surgeon's recommendations.

Two weeks later, an examination and removal of stitches are scheduled. By this time, in general, the woman gets used to new forms, the initial discomfort passes. You can start playing sports in a gentle mode, eliminating the load on the shoulders and chest area. Do not lift heavy kettlebells or make sudden movements.

In addition, during the first month, the patient should constantly wear special compression garments - it helps to fix the correct, anatomical position of the new breast.

You will be able to admire the final result in about 5-6 months, when hidden edema subsides and tissue sensitivity is fully restored.
