The internal Breast lift is often call the capsulodesis. What this refers to is placing sutures on the inside of the breast that elevate the breast implant and put it into position that is more favorable. Sometimes the weight of the implant over time will cause the breast implant to fade droop or sag to the LEFT side or RIGHT side of the chest or excessively low on the chest wall. By placing internal sutures, the pocket where the implant is can then be moved more superiorly and more medially rather than falling to the side is some women often refer to it as. This requires sutures internally that will, essentially, suture your capsule around your breast implant down to the tissue around her ribs creating a nice curve to the breasts and lifting the breast up and in. This requires wearing a wired bra after surgery to help tack the sutures down to the chest wall to heal in this area. This operation is sometimes a little painful for patients and requires some tolerance, but it will heal if it is cared for properly after the surgical procedure. Inferior breast implants have begun to sag to the side of your chest or too low can be corrected if the implants can be elevated to the proper position. It is very important however to make sure that the brassieres worn after surgery to ensure that there is no recurrence of this. Gravitational pull of the implants downward and laterally when you are lying in bed will continue to slowly stretch the soft tissue and the implant will fade to unfavorable position if the breast supportive devices are not worn regularly.
