Can an Internal Bra Help Your Breast Implants?
Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery that many women undergo to enhance their appearance and self-confidence. While breast implants can provide the desired results, some women may experience complications such as implant displacement, sagging, or rippling. To address these issues, surgeons may recommend an internal bra, also known as acellular dermal matrix (ADM) or biological mesh. Qazi Cosmetic Center is a leading provider of this service, offering expert surgical techniques, state-of-the-art facilities, and a team of experienced and compassionate surgeons. In this blog post, we’ll explore whether an internal bra can help your breast implants and what you need to know before undergoing the procedure.
What is an Internal Bra?
An internal bra is a surgical mesh made of human or animal tissue that is placed around the breast implant to provide additional support. It acts as a sling to hold the implant in place, preventing it from shifting or sagging. Surgeons may use different types of ADMs, such as AlloDerm, Strattice, or FlexHD, depending on the patient’s needs and the surgeon’s preference.
When is an Internal Bra Recommended?
Surgeons at Qazi Cosmetic Center may recommend an internal bra in the following cases:
- Women with thin or weak breast tissue may not have enough support to hold the implant in place. An internal bra can provide additional support and prevent the implant from rippling or showing through the skin.
- Also, if women present capsular contracture which is a complication that occurs when the scar tissue around the implant hardens and tightens, causing pain, discomfort, or distortion. An internal bra can help to prevent capsular contracture by reducing the pressure on the implant and allowing it to settle naturally.
- And women who undergo revision surgery to correct implant displacement, bottoming out, or other issues may benefit from an internal bra to provide additional support and stability.
