A new, innovative Breast Lift procedure has recently been announced, and some are calling it an internal miracle bra. The Orbishape, a bra-shaped silicone sling, is designed to be placed inside of the natural breast tissue. The device will assist women with lax breast tissue, lifting and tightening the chest.
“Think of it as a hammock that sits underneath your breast to keep it supported, or like the bottom part of an underwire bra,” said Yossi Mazel, the chief operating officer of Orbix Medical, a medical device company based in Tel Aviv, Israel. He also explained that as traditional breast lifts often begin to sag within months, as tissues continue to age. The Orbishape helps preserve the results of surgery in the long term by providing additional support. In their medical trials, patients receiving the Orbishape show little to no change in the shape or position of their breasts for up to five years.
To place the Orbishape, a small incision is made in the breast crease; the device is then inserted and attached to the ribs and breastbone with both titanium anchors and surgical threads. The recovery time after surgery is minimal. Best of all, the internal bra is said to help patients heal faster from their Breast Augmentation, and reduce the appearance of surgical scars.
Recently submitted for review by the Food and Drug Administration, approval for the Orbishape will possibly come later this year. In some European countries, it has already been approved for use.
So what do you think? Would you be interested in an ‘internal bra’ one day? Choices in Breast Augmentation techniques are continually growing and evolving at a fast pace. Today’s procedures will provide better results, with a shorter recovery time, than ever before. Breast Augmentation can be tailored to fit the needs of an individual; never giving ‘cookie-cutter’ results.
