Many women find that wearing a bra is very constricting and can have difficulty finding a bra that fits them properly. Those who undergo plastic surgery to get breast implants or have their breast size reduced also find it challenging to find a bra that provides the support and comfort they need. Cosmetic surgeons have now developed an innovative breast lift procedure that may reduce the need for wearing a bra altogether.
The “breform” procedure works as an internal bra to support the breast tissue and keep it in place. This bra is placed under the skin layer of the breasts to act as an internal support system. It is made of a polyester material and is inserted right into the tissue without risk of breaking down. The internal bra is inserted into the tissue after a small incision is made around the areola. The cup is designed to cover the fat and tissue of the breasts completely, and then is sutured in place to create a smooth look.
The breform procedure works as a permanent bra, and can reduce the need to be completely dependent on wearing a real bra for support. The material used to create the bra in this procedure is safe to use as an implant and poses few hazards and side effects for the patient. It is a cosmetic procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis. In most cases, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, but some surgeons may recommend general anesthesia depending on the size of the breast tissue and the health of the patient.
This innovative breast lift procedure is designed for women who have sagging breasts, but may not be effective for women with very large breasts. Women who are a C cup, D cup or larger may need to undergo breast reduction surgery before they are suitable candidates for the breform procedure.
