OH MY found this on the net.. truth???

In the not-too-distant-future, you'll be able to have your sagging breasts lifted on your lunch hour! Well, just about.... An Israeli company, MIM (Minimally Invasive Mastopexy) has developed a two-hole breast lift procedure to insert what amounts to a permanent push-up bra under your breasts. How clever and how considerate!

Yup! If the human trials are successful, the huge anchor incisions on women's bodies, made for the "aesthetic" lifting of sagging breasts, may become a thing of the past. Breast lifts are currently among the most invasive cosmetic surgeries, involving the removal and new placement of breast tissue, lots of incisions, often removal and replacement of the nipple, and insertion of implants. These surgeries are painful afterwards and can involve weeks of recovery. Then there is that chance they will not be successful and you require a repeat surgery.

The new technique, called the "Cup&Up" involves the insertion of a silicone implant through two small incisions and its attachment to the ribs and connective tissue with a few small screws and some surgical thread. Doesn't sound too bad, does it?

Pigs were chosen as the first subjects for "Cup&Up" testing because their skin is the most like human flesh. The pig Cup&Ups were tested successfully for "staying power, tissue reaction and damage or injury to muscles or ribs." Now that MIM is ready to conduct human trials, plastic surgeons from all over the world are trying to get their patients into the clinical trials.

Because of the demand for breast lifts worldwide, the Cup&Up procedure should be available within a few years.

They can't be serious! How in the world can you insert a silicone implant through 2 small incisions and screw it/sew it to the ribcage?

Cool thread Lisa!

I always think "there's GOT to be a better way" when it comes to the extensive scarring left by an anchor lift, but this technique...hmmm...I don't see how it would lift the areolas? I'm picturing perky implants high up on the chest wall UNDER the skin, but what about the skin itself?? I'm thinking 'double bubble', but maybe I'm just not getting the full picture.

ps...poor widdle piggies

I cant picture how this can be done in a lunch hour. What about anesthetics and all? Seems like a regular BA to me, since we only went thru like an hour or hour and a half surgery.... and this sticking to your ribcage business...yuck

Imagine how that would look on a thin-skinned woman like me. You'd be able to actually see the lip of the cup or whatever it is, as well as all the other apparatus through my skin. Thinking of screwing that thing to my ribcage gives me the willies.

i don't think it's impressive, looks quite scary, plus its a TOTALLY new technique, i don't know about the strings holding the silicone up from the top of your ribcage, and the complications this may have (with excessive movement, or excercise, will the screws wither away at the bone etc...) ribs are fragile...maybe I'm exaggerating, but I really don't think its that ingeneious on the inside (except for the fact that you have no scars externally showing)...and I can't imagine how you would get something like that done on a 'lunch break' crazy!
sorry that's just my dark take on it

sure there'll be more impressive things to come. one good thing to come out of this though, is may spark up more interest in finding all kinds of different and better ways to breast plastic surgey procedures...so
