Consisting of two semi-solid domes the BRAVA Sport and Starter System are only slightly varying. The domes are produced from specifically designed silicone gel connected intuitively to an advanced minicomputer named the SmartBox. By creating a semi-vacuum within the sealed domes covering the patient’s breasts; SmartBox can regulate the negative pressure for suiting each patient’s anatomy and expectations. The transparent silicone domes come with a support garment made of engineered mesh to hold them in place much like a sports bra. Different sizes are available for each person based on the prospective patient’s. Your physician or customer support expert will be able to guide you for the best fit.
B working on internal tissue gradually overtime BRAVA purports massive benefits and results of the BRAVA that surpasses traditional breast augmentation and reconstruction techniques. In the presence of gentle tension caused by the partial vacuum the breast tissue regenerates tiny capillaries through the expanding mass. The fat volume only increases negligibly, since the BRAVA system doesn’t produce fat or effect body fat levels. Abundant blood supply and extended fibro-vascular matrix structure however creates the ideal environment required for fat grafting.
The expansion of the skin in tandem with the underlying tissues all the way to the chest wall (as shown in MRI scans) becomes a fertile scaffold for large volumes of fat to be transferred and more importantly; integrate. The technique applied in tissue expansion is not a new one since it has been around for than a century, but the technique and technology involved sure has made it immensely beneficial, convenient and devoid of health risks.
There are number of parameters by which the success of this operation depends. By simply using BRAVA, the patient may observe an increase in size, but BRAVA alone can only expand the tissue and that may be enough for patients who already have generous volume of tissue to work upon. But in others; fat transfer augmentation of the expanded breast tissue will bring about the real results. For fat transfer augmentation the following criteria makes the patient a good candidate:
– The breasts should have ample definition in the structure especially the upper part and vascularity within the tissue as achieved with BRAVA.
– Patient’s retaining good elasticity in the skin and a healthy tone.Should be physically and mentally healthy
– It’s best for patient’s to be realistic about their expectations.
– Abstinence from smoking and alcohol for a period of 3-4 months prior to surgery.
– Have ample fat deposits around the body. For a thin patient; the complications of liposuction are greater than other healthier patients.
Before the use of the BRAVA system, the patient’s breast tissue is at normal density. IF fat transfer is to be carried out at this state, fat necrosis may occur, resulting in the fat cells that aren’t accommodated to die out. Moreover only a subtle increase in size may be perceived. Repeated operations of liposuction and injection of fat into the breast tissue at periods of various months are needed to meet the patient’s expectations.
In the days that a female patient wear the BRAVA system the existing tissue extends, the structure expands and regenerates continuously with blood vessels beginning to form and spread throughout the cellular structure. The entire breast expands gradually from within while the patient carries on with their daily routine and leisure activities without feeling any discomfort.
Keeping in touch with your surgeon will help you decide when it is okay to take off the device. From then onwards, your surgeon’s advice will suit you best. Your surgeon will understand your motives and other facts peculiar to you and give you the best advice keeping your expectations in mind. Remember that BRAVA makes you an ideal candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation.
Fat Augmentation Process
In the process of fat transfer breast augmentation the patient’s breasts are marked out with entry points and cannula pass lines. The procedure is wholly carried out in the presence of general anesthesia and sedation since it involves extracting fat through microliposuction from various areas of the body where fat is plenty such thighs and abdomen. Tiny cuts are required to insert tubes under the skin into the fatty layer to extract or implant fat. Depending on the patient the whole procedure may take up to 2-4 hours to successfully isolate, refine and inject fat into specific areas around the breast. The cannula openings are lastly stitched shut and the patient is allowed to leave once the anesthesia effect has worn off.
Recovery from breast fat augmentation is minimal and since the process is carried out as an outpatient procedure patients can return to work and normal routine in a couple of days. Patients will be given mild medication for any tenderness/bruising and antibiotics to prevent infection. Inform your doctor of your progress to safely recover.
