Popularity of cosmetic surgery continues to soar in Thailand, providing women with new ways to look and feel their best. This includes numerous options for breast augmentation, which to this day, is one of the most popular services in the industry, but are hybrid implants the way to go.
As technology advances, the options for breast augmentation are endless, giving women choices on how to sculpt their ideal image. Through the years, the ideal breast image has changed from larger sizes to women looking for just a slight enhancement. Hybrid breast augmentation is one of the best ways to achieve this.
For women looking to slightly increase their cup size (let’s say 1 to 1 1/2 increase) the hybrid breast augmentation looks and feels much more natural in comparison to classic implants alone.

What is Hybrid Breast Augmentation?
Hybrid breast augmentation or hybrid implants is just as it sounds, a two-step hybrid operation that involves a combination of both fat transfer and implants.
Also known as composite breast augmentation, hybrid breast augmentation consists of layering the patient’s displaced fat over the breast implants. In other words, after the surgeon places the implant under the breast, they add the fat over the implant, filling in spots that would otherwise be missed.
The work of the fat over the implant allows for a more symmetrical look because the surgeon is able to work and contour to the desired breast shape, eliminating imperfections.
The fat transferer procedure (also known as fat grafting) is well known among other cosmetic surgeries, for instance, fat grafting plays a key role in the infamous Brazilian Buttlift which has climbed in popularity in recent years.
For the transfer, fat is removed from unwanted areas of the patient’s body, for example, the abdomen or outer thighs, through liposuction. The fat is then spun in a centrifuge, which separates the fat cells from blood and other impurities, leaving it clean and ready to use.
One of the benefits of doing a fat transfer for breast augmentation is the ability of the surgeon to customize the procedure for the patient. As many women know, breast size can vary between the two sizes, but with the use of fat, surgeons can make precise enhancements that are even more symmetrical than with an implant alone.
Hybrid breast augmentations call for a smaller implant size than traditional breast augmentations. As you may have guessed, this is because what lacks in implant size is made up with fat. This being said, the patient must be a good fit for this procedure, meaning they must have enough body fat to spare.
Another step in the breast augmentation processes is the selection of implant. Here at Azami medical, we recommend the Motiva Silicone Implants. Motiva provides customers with a large variety of implant choices, which can lead to the ultimate desired result. Motiva also has options for women who may be lacking in body fat, resulting in the elimination of a full hybrid breast augmentation.
The MotivaHybrid is a great option if you’re trying to decide which kind of implant you would want for your hybrid breast augmentation. Motiva provides women with a variety of shapes and can be personally tailored to you needs based on your anatomy and base tissue. There are also several options to choose from when it comes to projection including the Mini, Demi, Full, or Corse.
As mentioned above, Motiva has numerous options when it comes to implant size and implant type. We recommend the Motiva Ergonomix implant for your surgery. Made with Progressive Gel Ultima, the Ergonomix adapts to mimic your body’s natural movement, while also maintaining proportion with your natural figure.
What’s the cost of hybrid breast augmentation in Thailand?
With all that said, the cost of a hybrid breast augmentation is only a little bit more than the cost of a classic augmentation. The result, however, is amazing. It costs between $5,000 and $7,000 or (180,000 baht and 250,000 baht) depending on the silicone used and whether you get a mini or full hybrid surgery.
Recovery time is also a little longer with the hybrid surgery (only by a few more days), but is certainly worth it if a natural looking bust is your primary end goal.
