Many women notice deflation or sagging of their breast tissue due to a variety of factors including pregnancy, breast feeding, weight fluctuations and gravity. The traditional breast lift restores the youthful shape of the breast, but there is scar. Plastic surgeons have tried many techniques to achieve scarless breast lift. The Refine™ suture suspension system is the latest technique with the most long lasting result for scarless breast lift.
For those patients seeking to restore a youthful appearance to their breasts, the Refine™ suture suspension system offers one of the best techniques for scarless breast lift alternative to traditional breast lift ( mastopexy).
The Refine™ system is a soft and flexible suture-mesh-anchor system that provides the soft tissue with internal support. It is made from medical grade polyester, the same material that has been used in permanent sutures for decades. It has been FDA approved and is indicated for the reinforcement of soft tissue. This means that Refine™ can be used to enhance the results of many breast procedures.
