Improving the Longevity and Results of Mastopexy and Breast Reduction Procedures: Reconstructing an Internal Breast Support System with Biocompatible Mesh to Replace the Supporting Function of the Ligamentous Suspension


The reasons for recurrent ptosis in mastopexy and breast reduction procedures are twofold. First, available surgical techniques do not reconstruct the normal breast anatomy responsible for maintaining breast shape.
