While some women that want a Boob Job want bigger boobs there are other women who want to lift up their breasts.
Dr Grant Stevens, a Los Angeles Cosmetic Surgeon developed The Laser Bra technique called The Stevens Lift.
The Traditional Method
“Traditionally, the skin that was reduced was discarded, and the remaining skin then fashioned around the breast tissue.” Dr Stevens says that after doing hundreds of these traditional breast lifts with surgery alone, he decided to implement the laser when he saw the incredible way lasers were shrinking the sagging skin on women’s faces. He believed lasers could do the same for breasts – thus, he developed an internal laser bra.
The New Technique
“With the new technique, the skin otherwise discarded is treated in such a way with the laser, that a bra is fashioned and secured to the chest wall. This “Bra” holds the breast tissue up and in place,” explained Dr Stevens. It is entirely internal and is done with the patient’s own tissue. Therefore, there are no added problems with infection or rejection, often seen with foreign bodies.”
Cosmetic Surgery is still part of the Breast Lifting New Procedure
The surgery is performed under a general anesthetic. Incisions are made horizontally and vertically, as with a traditional breast lift. Excess skin is treated with the laser, fabricating the internal brassiere. This internal bra is then tacked to the chest wall and the entire breast and nipple are lifted. The procedures takes about 2 hours; swelling and discomfort are minimal, with recovery time taking 5-7 days.
The incisions are similar to the breast lift – both horizontal and vertical. However, during surgery the excess fat, tissue and skin are removed from both sides of the breast and the breast is repositioned. “Here is something different from a traditional breast reduction,” said Dr Stevens. “By using the laser, we are also preserving the blood supply that would otherwise potentially be interrupted. We have not seen any loss of nipple sensation. The blood supply to the nipple is improved and nipple sensation is preserved.” The Laser Bra utilized to support the reduced breast tissue.
No extra risks
There are no extra risks involved in this surgery. In fact, I would argue it possibly minimizes risks because the risk of extrusion, migration and exposure of the implant are diminished since the laser bra creates a new layer of tissue over the implant,” said Dr Stevens.
An internal bra created with the patient’s own tissue is giving long lasting results to mastopexy (breast lift), breast reduction/life and breast augmentation/lift surgery. A CO2 laser is used to de-epithelialize the patient’s own skin and create an internal bra which is then attached to the chest wall, holding up the breast tissue. This process does not add to surgical time, carries no further risks and can help create a more aesthetically pleasing shape to the breast.
We still couldn’t find any Cosmetic or Plastic Surgeon that is performing a similar Boob Job Procedure in Sydney, not even in Australia.
