How Safe is DuraSorb® Internal Bra Breast Augmentation?

By: Dr. Sean Kelishadi, M.D. FACS


Although complications during breast augmentation healing and recovery are rare, they can occur. To help reduce the risk of certain complications – including capsular contracture, bottoming out, and breast implant displacement – surgeons have historically used mesh to support breast implants and tissues as they heal. However, these materials are often thought to be linked to health problems, leading many patients and surgeons to forego their use altogether. At SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi is proud to help patients achieve beautiful, natural-looking, and long-lasting outcomes using the safest and most effective breast augmentation techniques and technologies available today, including the DuraSorb internal bra. Let’s explore DuraSorb breast augmentation further, including how it works and why it’s considered a safer alternative than traditional surgical mesh.

Why is mesh used during breast augmentation?

Some surgeons utilize surgical mesh to help support the breast tissues and newly placed breast implants during the healing process. This technique can significantly reduce the risk of implant displacement, bottoming out, capsular contracture, and other potential complications, while enhancing the final aesthetic outcome of the procedure. However, traditional mesh materials stay in the body for many years – sometimes indefinitely – and are often thought to cause a host of unwanted symptoms and health problems later in life. Still, many patients desire the benefits that supportive mesh can provide – without the health risks. For these patients, DuraSorb internal bra breast augmentation may be the answer.

What is a DuraSorb internal bra?

DuraSorb is a revolutionary mesh-like material that provides structural support to the breasts and breast implants as a patient’s body heals from breast augmentation surgery. The primary difference between DuraSorb vs. traditional mesh is that DuraSorb is designed to disintegrate once it’s no longer needed and can be safely bioabsorbed by the body.

Is DuraSorb safer than mesh?

DuraSorb is specially designed to dissolve and safely resorb into the body within one year, leaving no trace of the material behind. During those months, however, the structural properties of DuraSorb will have established a framework that gives the breasts and breast implants essential support that lasts long after the material has disintegrated. DuraSorb is widely considered to be a safer alternative to traditional surgical mesh for use in breast augmentation and breast lift procedures.
