As women age and enter their forties, fifties and beyond, severity and loss of collagen and elastin can cause sagging breasts, which can affect a woman’s overall appearance and reduce her self-confidence.
A large bra is a temporary solution for lifting the breasts, but once removed, it is impossible to reassemble them except by intervention surgery, such as a breast lift or breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation with implants can help correct sagging and improve your appearance, but a new treatment on the horizon may offer an even better solution. Enter GalaFORM 3D, a type of scaffolding that can be placed in the breasts with surgery to strengthen existing breast tissue and give breasts a natural look.
Galatea Surgical, the brand’s parent company, recently announced that GalaFORM 3D has received FDA clearance for use in plastic surgery. According to the company, it is currently the only surgical scaffold with three-dimensional contours with a reinforcing rim designed to enhance the natural shape of the body, facilitate its placement and reduce the procedure time.
The material is biologically derived (consisting of a natural substance from living organisms such as cells and tissues) and has a “pr unique mechanical opacity allowing it to be molded and shaped in 3D, ”provided plastic surgeons with a good potential option for lifting the breasts.
“GalaFORM 3D is a bioresorbable scaffold based on poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (a powerful but flexible absorbent material at the same time). “This specific scaffold has been used successfully in the past for hernia repair, and is now suitable for use in the sagging breast. We can’t wait to see how it works in practice, like the biological scaffolds currently in use, as well as being effective. Plastic surgeons have been looking for affordable internal scaffolding for 50 years, and we all hope that GalaFORM will fulfill this role. ”
William Adams, plastic surgeon, also commented on the new product. “Scaffolding plays an important role in cosmetic surgery, where we deal with the rejuvenation of weakened tissue. We have studied soft tissue support products over the years, but they are very different.
they do not add long-term resistance to the tissue and are not as biocompatible. Galatea scaffolds are made from an easily absorbable monofilament, rather than a multifilament, which reduces infection. GalaFORM 3D is an innovative scaffolding with a ready-to-use shape that better adapts to the patient’s natural curves. I look forward to using this revolutionary 3D scaffold in my patients who require soft tissue support. “
