In standard breast enlargement surgery implants are inserted either in front or behind the muscle. However, over time drop/sagginess is inevitable and, depending on the weight of the implant, there is either a swift drop/sagginess in heavy implants and delayed drop/sagginess in lighter implant scenarios. A hybrid premium breast enlargement is designed to delay this process by providing additional support and employing muscle-sparing techniques.

Similarly to a standard procedure implants are inserted to augment/enlarge the breast, however in premium/hybrid breast enlargement/augmentation the implant is inserted in front of the muscle. In premium/hybrid breast augmentation  procedure Implant is wrapped in Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM), which fixes to the back wall and supports most of the weight of the implant thus preventing/delaying sagging. This technique is ideal for muscle sparing breast enlargement and enables the surgeon to create a more natural looking breast without having to position the implant under the muscle. The benefits of placing the implants in front of the muscle are that the procedure is less painful, recovery is quicker and the resulting cleavage better. In other words, it achieves the best of both worlds. This is combined with use of B-Lite implants, which are 25% to 33% lighter than normal implants. Above technique, premium/hybrid breast augmentation is novel and most modern technique to delay sagging after breast augmentation is certain cases. Due to it being a very expensive, not many individual opt for it however it has potentially more far more longevity than standard breast augmentation which makes it worth while in selected group of clients.

By incorporating of a fat transfer, a hybrid breast augmentation/enlargement also allows the use a smaller implant. A fat transfer can be used to either enhance the upper pole to create a more pronounced, fuller breast or it can be used to give overall volume, thus reducing the need to use a larger implant. As a result the risk of implant related issues is greatly reduced e.g. capsular contracture, ptosis/drop/sagginess etc.

In order to delay drop/sagginess, Mr Ahmad also recommends B-Lite implants, which are 25% to 33% lighter than normal implants.

Surgery is performed with the assistance of an experienced surgical assistant, careful stitching is employed, and time is taken over the final details to ensure the highest quality results that can be found on the market.

This premium breast surgery procedure carries a 1 year warranty for revision.

Frequently asked questions

ABOUT PREMIUM HYBRID BREAST AUGMENTATION WITH ADM

+ Why Opt For Breast Surgery?

Women opt for breast augmentation and enhancement for a number of reasons, and each is unique. But in general they fall into three categories -

Volume enhancement due to aesthetic/medical reasons:
For personal preference (dissatisfied with the shape and size of breast)
Replace breast volume lost after having children and breastfeeding
Correct uneven breasts
Correct mild to moderate ptosis (breast droop)

For complications from previous breast enhancement surgery:
Capsular contracture
Rupture/ Bleeding implants
Bottoming out

To correct congenital conditions involving the breast:
Poland syndrome
Tuberous breast
Pectus excavatum
Scoliosis
For Breast reconstruction
Correct large volume deficit after previous lumpectomy for breast cancer
After mastectomy

+ Can Asymmetrical or Disproportionate Breasts Be Corrected?

Mild breast asymmetry is not an uncommon scenario. Most women live with this all their lives without even realising. Unfortunately, sometimes asymmetry can be quite marked and noticeable. This can be a source of distress for some women, especially if one breast is very small and other has marked ptosis (breast droop).

There are four types of asymmetry. Type I and type II are not very difficult to correct as the asymmetry is not very striking. These are either corrected by augmenting one side (in type I) or by reducing one side (type II). Type III and IV are complicated and need careful assessment and correction. They may take more than one surgery and require an experienced and skilful surgeon. And although it's challenging and difficult surgery, it's very rewarding for the surgeon when the desired results are achieved and the patient is happy and satisfied with the results.

+ How Much Do Breast Implants Cost?

Fees for premium breast augmentation start from £15,000. Different factors are taken into account e.g. type of implant, revision, site of operation etc.

+ What Are The Benefits Of Premium Surgery Over Standard Enlargement?

Following breast surgery with implants there is inevitable sag/drop over time. A premium procedure employs the latest innovations in the world of cosmetic surgery to minimise sag/drop, thus creating high-end, long lasting results.

This premium procedure involves inserting the implant in front of the muscle and behind breast tissue, using Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM) to provide strength and a fat transfer (when indicated) to create a natural looking contour. A hybrid breast augmentation/enlargement also allows the use a smaller implant, whilst still creating a full and pronounced contour.

Mr Ahmad's technique is unique in many ways, but most of all it allows total ADM coverage thus enhancing tissue coverage in addition to the benefits above.

CONSULTATION

What Happens At My First Consultation?

Your consultation is always with Mr. Ahmad. This is a detailed meeting to assess your current situation, medical history, suitability for breast enlargement, and to perform the bio-dimensional assessment.

You will have a full breast examination, comprehensive measurements made of your frame, existing breast size, glandular analysis, tissue characteristics, and anatomical variations in typical dimensions.

The type of breast implants on the market, their safety, and the ones that have the best life span and lowest complication rate will be discussed.

Mr. Ahmad will also detail your options and alternatives, the potential complications, any limitations, short and long term breast changes, costs, the need for future surgery, mammography and follow-up.

If indicated you will have a full 3D image assessment using Crisalix. This can help customers to choose appropriate size breast implant.

What Size Can My Breasts Be Increased To?

Mr. Ahmad uses several methods to assess the optimum size of breast implant, particularly 3D imaging system, Crisalix.

Crisalix 3D imaging systems enables the client and surgeon decide on size based on your proportions. This is the safest way of balancing the desired size of breast enhancement with reduced detrimental effects. Most women desire to be a u201cCu201d or u201cDu201d cup but some will request bigger sizes and although cup-size is not absolutely guaranteed, Mr. Ahmad will be able to show you how your breast shape can be augmented, and take into account your preference.

If you ask for a size that is much larger than your assessment suggests then you must be aware that there may be higher risks of complications and detrimental changes: e.g. breast tissue sag, palpability, less natural appearance, numbness, arms rubbing against side of breasts, ache and future mal-position.

Mr. Ahmad assesses women for large breast implants and advises them regarding the feasibility of mega-enhancement / enlargement. Some of these mega-enhancements may require two-stage procedures.

Mr. Ahmad will always strive to meet your expectations but if there are limitations as to what can be achieved (often related to your starting point) then these will be discussed.

It is important to be realistic.

What Type of Implants Are Available?

Mr. Ahmad uses a wide variety of breast implants, including Allergan or Mentor, Sebbin and more recently B-Lite breast implants, which are 30% lighter than other breast implants. These all have an excellent reputation for durability and a very low incidence of capsular contracture - a complication following breast surgery, when scar tissue tightens causing misshapen and hard implants.

SURGERY

Where Is The Implant Inserted?

Premium breast augmentation involves inserting the implant in front of the muscle and behind breast tissue.

Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Painful?

The chest area often feels u201ctightu201d and tender for a few days. Often one side feels slightly tighter, or more tender initially due to an implant settling earlier on one side than the other. You will be able to move about as normal, but you should avoid using your chest wall muscles forcibly, to minimise discomfort.

How Will I Feel After Surgery?

The vast majority of women feel relaxed and comfortable immediately after surgery. Breast tenderness and a tight feeling usually become apparent gradually.

At this stage your surgeon should be happy for the nursing staff to dispense painkillers which are given in combination for few days, but most patients are quite comfortable with taking paracetamol after a week or so.

It is quite common for one breast to be more tender, and to swell slightly more (this is often the right side). Similarly one breast will often recover more quickly and this is quite normal.

Although it would be very rare, the gradual appearance of a great discrepancy in size would not be normal and should be assessed. Similarly if you feel unwell, feverish and develop a temperature you would need to consult your surgeon. If the skin over the breast swells and becomes reddened and tender you would need to consult your doctor.

Changes like this would be very unusual indeed, but it is important to know that should they occur, a prompt review is required to assess the cause and treat it.

How Long Will I Be In Hospital?

Most commonly breast enlargement surgery is done as a day case, however if you have surgery in the evening you will normally stay overnight. Mr. Ahmad will review you the morning after surgery and, if everything is satisfactory, will discharge you from the hospital normally by midday.

What Clothes Should I Bring To Wear After The Operation?

A loose button-down shirt is ideal. Avoid clothes that would need pulling on over your head.

Are There Any Side Effects To The Operation?

The most common side effect is feeling sleepy for a few hours. Sometimes the anaesthetic or morphine make you feel sickly, but usually for a short time only.

You may feel slightly bloated for a few days. This is often due to slight constipation caused by medication. A gentle laxative (lactulose, movicol or senna) will help resolve this.
