The Modern Breast Lift and Internal Bra
Posted February 01, 2019 in Breast Lift
Voluptuous breasts are a commonly desired feature for women seeking a more feminine physique. Unfortunately, childbearing, weight fluctuations, the aging process, and genetic factors can cause the breasts to begin to sag downward and appear deflated. Some women also suffer from misshapen, asymmetrical breasts and nipples that point in different directions. These standard breast issues are natural but can decrease your self-confidence and make you feel less sexy. To achieve your desired breast shape and position on the chest, you can complete a breast lift, which will result in a perky, sculpted bust. Modern breast lift procedures now offer advanced technology and techniques to allow for better results and less visible scarring than ever before.
What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is performed as an outpatient procedure, and patients are provided with anesthesia to ensure a painless process. An incision is made so that Dr. Palladino can access the breast tissue, which is restructured and repositioned on the body; the incision is then closed. Incisions are typically around the edges of the areola; this is known as the donut technique. Another incision placement is one made around the areola and down the center of the breast, often referred to as the anchor method. Ultimately, the degree of correction you need will determine the location and size of your incision. This will be discussed during your consultation.
Dr. Palladino uses the most advanced technologies available, including mesh scaffolding. Mesh scaffolding is a biopolymer mesh that is designed to aid in the healing process; it is created using bioengineered components that are reabsorbed by your body as the tissue regenerates. The mesh material completely dissolves and leaves strong, newly formed, firm tissue that will support the breasts like an internal bra.
Your breast lift procedure can be combined with other techniques such as a body fat transfer, which takes purified fat from other parts of the body (most commonly from the hips or waist) and transfers refined fat cells to the breasts. You can also add breast augmentation to your lift to add volume and cleavage to your breasts. Conversely, if the breasts contain too much fat and are being weighed down, then a breast reduction may benefit you. During your consultation, Dr. Palladino will make recommendations on which procedures to consider to achieve a beautiful outcome.
Should I Consider a Breast Lift?
Ideal candidates for breast lift surgery should be in good health and have realistic expectations for their results. If you suffer from any of the following, then you may want to consider a breast lift:
- Sagging, disfigured breasts
- Dissatisfaction with the current appearance of your breasts
- Nipples that face different directions
- Breasts that are different shapes or sizes (asymmetrical)
What to Expect After a Breast Lift
Patients that have undergone a breast lift procedure are highly satisfied with their reshaped, higher-sitting breasts. Self-confidence is increased, and women feel that their breasts are more proportionate to their bodies. Breasts are lifted and the internal bra keeps them high on the chest, helping to prevent excess sagging.

Options for Breast Lift Recovery
To correct sagging breast skin, poor nipple placement, and deflation of breast tissue, a breast lift can reshape and reposition breasts on the chest. New technologies and techniques in the field of tissue engineering applied to plastic surgery have allowed for longer lasting results in breast lift repair. Using different materials, we can create an internal support (internal bra) to hold the tissue or implant in position for a longer time. These products eventually dissolve safely into the body, leaving behind healthy, strong, reinforced tissue.
Many materials are available for internal mesh scaffolding, each with their own unique benefits, and all biological ADMs are made from natural skin with the cells removed. Other scaffolding materials are made of components similar to absorbable sutures. The scaffolding is shaped into a sterile lattice for skin cells to grow into and replace after healing and absorption.
This material is derived from donated cadaveric (human) skin and is FDA approved. This option is a commonly selected material that supports and promotes tissue generation.
Known as ‘Reconstructive Tissue Matrix Perforated’, this is a surgical mesh made from porcine (pig) skin that is processed and preserved in a patented solution to remove any elements that could potentially lead to tissue rejection. This mesh is less likely to stretch over time because it is made from durable materials, which makes it another frequently selected option.
Manufactured mesh scaffolding is designed to provide strong support using absorbable materials. Each option is sterile and FDA approved, making these additional safe choices for internal support after a breast lift.
This is a scaffolding option for soft-tissue reinforcement, made from knitted monofilament surgical scaffold materials. It is entirely absorbable and naturally derived from P4HB, which is a flexible mesh appropriate for recovery from surgery.
Made from polyglactin 910, which is an absorbable, synthetic, braided mesh, this option is composed of a copolymer formed from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide.
Modern Materials Achieve Modern Results
After discussing your internal mesh options with Dr. Palladino, you will be able to make an educated decision together regarding which technique and material will work best for your procedure. Breasts can be fully supported with internal mesh framework, and any choice will support healing, promote cell growth, and help you achieve your desired cosmetic results.
