Internal Breast Lift (Capsulodesis)
The Internal Breast Lift, often called a Capsulodesis, referred by physicians as the procedure in which sutures are placed inside the breast. Elevating the breast implant into a more favorable position. Over time, sometimes the weight of the implant will cause the breast implant to fade, droop, sag or excessively fall lower on the chest wall. To the LEFT, or RIGHT side of the chest.
By placing internal sutures, the pocket where the implant is can then be moved more superiorly and medially. Omitting the implants from ‘falling to the side’, as some women refer to it as.
This requires sutures internally that will, essentially, ‘tie’ the capsule around your breast implant to the tissue around the ribs. Creating a nice curve to the breasts and tightening the breast up and inwards. Correcting the position of the inferior implants. Although the procedure explained is for women with implants, internal breast lifts can be done without implants as well.
The healing process for both is very much the same and can require a bit of tolerance. It is very important to make sure the brassieres are worn regularly after surgery to ensure proper, healthy healing of your new lift. Preventing movement and assuring the newly placed sutures will fasten to the corrected, lifted position post-surgery.
