How Does The Internal Bra Work?
While many women want higher, fuller breasts, they lack the elasticity in their breast skin to support long-lasting results. Tissue weakness can result from weight loss, post-pregnancy changes, age, or prior surgery. In such cases, additional soft tissue support is necessary to achieve optimal cleavage and a higher breast position.
The internal bra technique can describe various surgical methods or specific additional products in breast surgery to improve internal breast shape and stability. One of the most common methods is to use permanent or semi-permanent strong sutures in the internal breast pocket along the lower breast fold. Similar to how the cup of a push-up bra boosts the breasts to remedy sagging, the internal bra technique provides better support internally.
Dr. Courtney can create soft tissue reinforcement with a flexible, durable scaffold that integrates into your natural breast tissue. These scaffolds encourage natural tissue growth that will reabsorb the scaffold over 12 to 18 months, leaving natural tissue with a firm and youthful breast silhouette.
The internal bra technique is frequently combined with a limited scar periareolar lift or a full breast lift to tighten any loose skin on the breast. An internal bra can re-engineer the natural breast tissue to achieve results that breast augmentation and lift alone cannot produce.
