How Does the GalaFORM Internal Bra Support Breasts?
Many women who choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery do so in order to achieve fuller, perkier breasts that sit at a more youthful-looking place on the chest. However, there are a number of variables that can make this goal challenging in certain patients, such as thin skin or the desire for a relatively large implant size. To help these Draper, UT breast augmentation patients get as close to their ideal look as possible, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jerry Chidester (aka “Dr. Chiddy”) and the expert team at Jerry Chidester, MD often utilize the innovative GalaFORM 3D internal bra. Here, you’ll find useful information on how the GalaFORM 3D bra helps to support breast implants and whether this may be a valuable addition to your breast enhancement procedure.
What is the GalaFORM bra?
The GalaFORM 3D bra is an internal device that is inserted into the breast pocket at the time of breast augmentation for the purpose of providing added support to the implant and breast tissue during healing and recovery. The GalaFORM bra is made of a dissolvable mesh material that is shaped like a hammock of sorts, allowing the breast implant and tissues to maintain a natural, desirably round shape.
What are the benefits of using the GalaFORM bra during breast augmentation?
The GalaFORM 3D mesh bra is a fantastic option for adding support to implants during almost any breast augmentation surgery, but it can be particularly beneficial for patients with certain characteristics that may make them more susceptible to breast ptosis, or sagging. Signs that the 3D GalaFORM bra may be right for you include:
- Thin breast skin
- Skin laxity
- Prefer large implant size
- Natural breasts have begun to droop or sag
How long does it take the GalaFORM bra to dissolve?
One of the most exciting features of the GalaFORM 3D internal bra is that, once it has served its purpose, it dissolves and is safely absorbed by the body. This process typically takes about 1 – 2 years, during which time the mesh sutures work not only to support the implants but also to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibers for even more support and firmness.
Do I need a breast lift?
While the GalaFORM internal bra can certainly add support to your implants and breast tissue, women with pronounced skin laxity or breast ptosis may also require a breast lift (mastopexy) to achieve their preferred breast position and perkiness. During your initial consultation for breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery, Dr. Chiddy will examine your breasts, assess your skin laxity, discuss your goals, and determine whether the GalaFORM bra or a combination of the GalaFORM bra plus breast lift may be the most appropriate and successful course of action for helping you achieve your ideal new look.
