Cup&Up By MIM
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. (Oh, me first, me first!)
Because of the demand for breast lifts worldwide, the Cup&Up procedure should be available within a few years. So in the meantime, babes, keep wearing those push-up bras and try doing some push-up workouts to firm up your chest muscles.
Keeping you posted!
EDITOR'S NOTE: Non-surgery alternatives to fix the appearance of sagging breast include silicone bra inserts. These silicone bra inserts get great reviews on Amazon and may be worth trying.
