Sagging Breasts Need A Lift? Cup&Up To The Rescue!


Cup&Up By MIMCup&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.

Less Invasive Breast Lifts

I don't know if this is on the level or not, but it looks a bit too simple to be effective. I guess we may see. :)

Do you think this really

Do you think this really works?  Sounds much better than implants.

It should work, but

I thought of roughly this same procedure about 5 years ago.  In my model, the "cradle" is a mesh, so it may be more easily collapsed for insertion through a small incision and is a bit more elastic, reducing the strain on the anchors when bouncing.  I never found a satisfactory mechanism for attaching the supports to the ribs.  I don't like screws because they weaken the bone and most women undergoing the procedure are already peri- or post- menopausal.  I also don't like the idea of using surgical thread for the supports.  Such attempts in the past have usually resulted in breakage.

Does "explants" sound much better than "implants"? Not really... how about Busthoist? Hillraiser? Tiddy-up? The Firminator? I'm workin on it...

Horrible, just

Horrible, just horrible.
Money & vanity, that's all it is!
Using ANIMALS for the sake of having women have more perkier breasts? This is sick & horrible.

Hmmmm....

i can see why its a great idea, i mean wearing a bra wouldnt be such a problem, they wouldnt sag, but its still a horrible thing to do, insert a "bra" just to make people look better... what does it matter

Possibly a promising solution

I used to have gorgeous perfect 36C breasts. Then I went through a rough patch, and over about five years I gained about 90 pounds. Over the last year or so I've lost all of it, but my breasts are so horribly saggy I can barely look at them and I usually end up crying when I do. Severe Ptosis is what it's called. They're pendulous and ache all the time. I can't find a bra in which they don't "puddle" into the bottom of the cup. I'm only 23! I won't be able to afford any sort of surgery for a few years, and this procedure looks like it might be nicer than a regular breast lift, so I'll have to keep it in mind. In the meantime, they can test on as many pigs as they want! To me this isn't about vanity, or "more perkier" breasts (they'd have to be perky to begin with and they just aren't). It's about reconstruction and healing of physical and mental anguish.

Oh please.

"physical and mental anguish" are words you should reserve for people who have actual physical problems: rape victims, survivors of war violence, beaten wives, chemo therapy patients. Gaining and then losing weight, resulting in less-than-perfect breasts is a matter of your holding yourself to a standard YOU subscribed to. You should be happy you lost all of that weight, and glad to be back in a healthy place. How should the rest of us feel? Those of us who maybe never had perfect breasts, have had mastectomies, are naturally saggy, small, etc? Grow up and learn about what parts of you really need some investment or no one will value you for who you really are. Harsh words, but the truth.
