"I have been asking around about the internal bra procedure to be added to my lift and implants.I have found that very few docters know what this is… When I look on line ..it seem as if it is a fairly new process to the US ..perhaps even the last four years. From what I gather, It is a very good option to women having large implants placed under muscle. Please left me to understand the material being used and the process … I will ask my doctor to do this for me."
DR. POUSTI: Can someone explain the internal bra procedure and how it is completed? Can the internal bra be placed through the areola?.
The term “internal bra” is a term that is currently frequently used to describe procedures that provide support for breast implants. This support may include internal suture “repair” of the capsule (capsulorraphy), the use of acellular dermal matrix, the use of biosynthetic materials, or some combination of the above. These procedures are typically utilized for patients who are experiencing a breast implant displacement problem ( bottoming out or lateral displacement, for example). I prefer doing the procedure through a peri areolar incision.You may find the attached link, dedicated to revisionary breast surgery concerns, helpful to you as you learn more.
