While many breast reconstruction procedures utilize either an implant-based or autologous method, hybrid breast reconstruction offers the best of both worlds. By combining the use of an implant with the patient’s own transplanted tissues, this procedure can overcome some of the limitations offered by more traditional methods.
When Should I Consider Hybrid Breast Reconstruction?
Here at the Institute for Advanced Breast Reconstruction, we’re pleased to be offering our patients an impressively robust selection, when it comes to the techniques that can be used to complete your reconstruction procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Srinivasa will help you explore the options available to you, and you’ll work together to decide whether or not hybrid breast reconstruction is the right choice for you.
Patients often consider hybrid breast reconstruction for the following reasons:
- The necessary amount of donor tissue required for a fully autologous reconstruction is not present
- They wish to increase their cup size in a subtle, natural manner
- This procedure provides an increased level of control over the end result
- An increase in bust size can be combined with the natural softness offered by the autologous reconstruction method
