brava-breast-augmentation-system.jpg So far, there were two viable options available for women who wished to go in for breast augmentation. These are surgical breast implants and a non-surgical enhancement involving the use of an external tissue expansion device. Now, a recent study has come out with a new minimally invasive procedure for breast reconstruction and augmentation using the Brava System. Titled "Breast Augmentation With Grafting of Liposuctioned Fat: A Safe and Effective Procedure," this study was conducted on 25 volunteers and the results were extremely positive.

Study Findings
a. This study was done to assess the feasibility of using autologous fat to reshape and augment the breasts.
b. The preliminary findings were presented this week at the 55th Annual Clinical Meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in San Diego.
c. However, with advancement of technology, today, this procedure is deemed viable.
d. This study was conducted on 25 patients who were treated pre-operatively and post-operatively with Brava.
e. This is an external tissue expander used to prepare and later stent the recipient site.
f. It was seen that patients experienced between 90 to 300 ml increases per breast.
g. This study ensures that patients now have a natural, safe and effective cosmetic and re constructive procedure.

Product Highlights
a. This is a minimally invasive procedure.
b. This system is based on the technique of tissue expansion.
c. It involves the application of sustained and gentle pressure on breasts to stimulate the cells to replicate and produce more tissues.
