LAGUNA BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2016) - Breast lift surgery -- which is medically referred to as mastopexy -- is designed to remove excess tissue and elevate a patient's breasts to a more youthful position on the chest wall, explains Dr. Daniel Mills, a board certified plastic surgeon in Orange County and President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Unfortunately, he continues, some women who have undergone mastopexy in the past notice a reoccurrence of breast drooping much sooner than anticipated. Exacerbated by aging, collagen, loss of Cooper's Ligaments and elastin loss, sun overexposure, and a number of other factors, the relatively quick return of breast sagging after breast lift surgery is often associated with weak and/or inadequate breast tissue, he says.
To help prevent the reoccurrence of breast drooping in mastopexy patients who have weakened breast tissue and/or need tissue reinforcement, Dr. Mills now offers the GalaFLEX® scaffold -- a bioresorbable, lattice-like device designed to strengthen native breast tissues while promoting the growth of new, natural tissues. According to the Orange County plastic surgeon, key benefits of the GalaFLEX® scaffold for breast lift surgery can include:
- Immediate support of newly lifted and tightened tissues
- New soft tissue growth that is 3 to 5 times stronger than original tissue
- No interference with mammograms and other diagnostic tests
- Increased potential for longer-lasting mastopexy results
"Best of all," states a recent blog post on Dr. Mills' website, "the GalaFLEX® scaffold eventually breaks down via hydrolysis and is safely absorbed by the body after about 18-24 months, leaving behind only natural byproducts (carbon and water) and the newly developed, more durable breast tissue."
Ultimately, Dr. Mills notes that not every breast lift patient will need the GalaFLEX® scaffold to achieve long-lasting results, but for those who are susceptible to an accelerated reoccurrence of breast drooping after surgery, he notes that the tissue support and regeneration made possible by the innovative device may significantly prolong the outcome of treatment.
