The transformations that can be achieved with breast lift surgery are often life-changing. Thanks to breast lift, also called mastopexy, many women feel more feminine, confident, and youthful.

Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of using this exciting dissolvable mesh during your breast lift.

Do I need a breast lift?

Ideal candidates for breast lift surgery include women who have developed saggy, stretched-out breast skin over time or as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Unlike breast augmentation, which uses breast implants or fat transfer to increase breast size and volume, breast lift involves removing excess skin, tightening breast skin, and raising the breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. In many cases, restoring perkier breasts is the primary goal for breast lift surgery.

How does a breast lift work?

Breast lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia and may take about 2 – 3 hours to complete. There are several different breast lift incisions available, the most appropriate of which will be selected based on the patient’s concerns, amount of extra skin, surgical history, and other factors. Most commonly, breast lift surgery is performed using one of the following approaches:

  • Lollipop incision: around the areola and down the center of the lower half of the breast
  • Inverted-T (anchor): the same as a lollipop incision with the addition of an incision in the inframammary crease, just beneath the breast

Dr. Kelishadi will then trim the extra skin, raise the breast tissue, and close the incision with sutures to create a beautiful new breast shape and position. To further enhance the patient’s final results, Dr. Kelishadi may also utilize DuraSorb mesh, a technique known as internal bra breast lift surgery.

What are the benefits of DuraSorb vs. regular mesh during breast lift?

The primary difference between DuraSorb and other mesh materials used during breast enhancement surgery is that DuraSorb is designed to be safely and naturally reabsorbed by the body once it has served its purpose. Traditional mesh, on the other hand, often stays in the body indefinitely and has been tied to certain medical problems. Some of the most compelling benefits of using DuraSorb mesh during breast surgery include:

  • Gives the surgeon greater control during the procedure
  • Supports the tissues as they heal
  • Can add extra support for breast implants during the healing process
  • Reduces scarring
  • Minimizes the risk of complications, such as capsular contracture, bottoming out, sagging, and implant displacement
  • Helps create a more pleasing breast shape and position
  • Dissolves within about three months

Although DuraSorb mesh dissolves after several months, its effects during the healing process mean the patient will enjoy superior results for years to come.
