Keep reading for more information on the benefits of choosing breast augmentation with the DuraSorb internal bra technique.

Do implants make your breasts sag?

A common misconception about breast implants is that they will always cause a woman’s breasts to sag. In reality, implants that are properly placed and appropriately sized can actually fill out a woman’s breast pocket and result in a higher, perkier overall appearance. For patients who have stretched-out breast skin, elongated breasts, or deflated breasts, combining a breast lift with breast augmentation can often help to reverse breast sagging. It is important for patients considering breast augmentation and/or breast lift to understand that cosmetic surgery will not completely halt the aging process, and the breasts may naturally descend over time as a result of gravity, skin laxity, and other factors.

To keep breast implants supported in the appropriate position as the patient heals and recovers from surgery, which can greatly reduce the risk of subsequent implant sagging, Dr. Kelishadi utilizes DuraSorb mesh.

How does DuraSorb internal bra mesh help during breast augmentation?

Oftentimes, plastic surgeons use surgical mesh to support breast implants as they heal. While this can be an effective technique, certain mesh materials have been shown to cause health complications over time. Unlike other meshes, DuraSorb actually breaks down within a few months and is safely resorbed by the body. In other words, DuraSorb serves its purpose of supporting breast implants during the healing process and then dissolves when it is no longer needed, leaving the patient with beautiful, perky breasts. In addition to supporting breast implants, internal bra mesh reduces the risk of other breast augmentation complications, such as:

  • Implant sagging
  • Bottoming out
  • Implant displacement
  • Capsular contracture
  • Breast asymmetry

To further reduce the risk of breast implant sagging and other breast augmentation complications, patients should:

  • Wear supportive garments as instructed during recovery
  • Restrict physical activity and heavy lifting for at least 4 – 6 weeks
  • Wear supportive bras even after recovery, particularly when exercising
  • Choose a highly qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon for breast augmentation
  • Choose an implant shape, size, and profile appropriate for your body type

During your initial consultation for breast augmentation with internal mesh, Dr. Kelishadi will listen to your concerns, examine your natural breasts, discuss all of your available options at length, and help you choose the right type of breast implants for you.
