MIM, an Israeli startup, which calls itself after the procedure it’s developing (Minimally Invasive Mastopexy), has a less intrusive approach to breast augmentation.
As women age, breasts may begin to sag, a process often accelerated by pregnancy and nursing. Mastopexy involves massive interference with both internal and external breast tissues and the procedure is expensive requiring long term recovery with potential risks and complications. Despite the risks, millions of invasive breast procedures are performed each year.
Another problem with current procedures is their failure to prevent breasts from later sagging. “They last only for limited period of time after treatment,” Cohen told ISRAEL21c. “Newton is around, and gravity is working, and everything is falling again – what we call ptosis.”
“What we’ve done is build a silicon bra, insert it into the body and attach it to the ribs and to the fascia. It’s like a normal external bra,” he continues, “where a strip lies on the shoulder and attaches around the body. We attach it to the ribs instead of to the shoulder, and to the fascia in the lower part of the body.”
