Breast augmentation procedures have come a long way in helping individuals enhance their self-confidence and achieve their desired aesthetic goals. One innovative technique that is gaining popularity in the plastic surgery community is known as the "internal bra" technique. In this blog post, we will delve into the concept of the internal bra and how it is revolutionizing breast augmentation procedures.
The internal bra technique involves using various surgical approaches or specific additional products to improve breast shape and stability. It aims to control breast position, shape, or implant by providing structural support internally. The most common method involves using specially designed strong sutures in the internal breast pocket along the lower breast fold.
The internal bra technique proves to be particularly beneficial in correcting implant complications such as symmastia, "double bubble," and "bottoming-out." These issues often arise due to implant pocket instability, often caused by poor dissection or the use of an inappropriate-sized implant. By tightening and strengthening the implant pocket, the internal bra technique ensures that the implant stays in the correct position for optimal results.
Additionally, in complex primary breast augmentation cases, the internal bra technique can be employed to provide extra reinforcement and prevent potential bottoming-out risks. This technique allows individuals with less resilience or elasticity in the skin to achieve longevity in their surgical outcome and correct previous implant complications.
The internal bra technique is not limited to breast augmentation alone; it can also be employed in breast reduction or lift procedures. By providing internal support and stability, this surgical approach helps to maintain the newly lifted tissues and ensures longevity in the final results. The scarring associated with this technique is minimal, as all stitching is done internally, leaving a seamless appearance.
While the term "internal bra" may evoke the image of a surgical technique that replaces the need for regular bras, it is important to note that this procedure is not intended as a substitute for bra support. Regardless of surgery, all breasts are subject to the effects of gravity. The internal bra technique is designed to enhance internal breast support, but it is still necessary to continue wearing supportive bras in everyday life.
Dr. Azad, a renowned cosmetic plastic surgeon, employs several variations of the internal bra technique in his practice. During a consultation, Dr. Azad will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for this technique, considering factors like skin elasticity and desired surgical outcomes. He will explain the procedure in detail, addressing any concerns or questions you may have.
The internal bra technique stands as a breakthrough in breast augmentation procedures, offering improved shape, stability, and longevity in surgical outcomes. Whether for correcting implant complications or providing support in breast reduction or lift procedures, this innovative approach has the potential to redefine the field of plastic surgery. If you are considering breast augmentation and wish to explore the benefits of the internal bra technique, a consultation with Dr. Azad is just a step away.
