About Internal Bra / Mesh

Made of a biocompatible material designed to integrate with your body's tissues over time, the internal bra/mesh is placed inside the breast tissue and anchored to the chest wall. This provides support and helps to prevent the breast tissue from sagging or shifting. The internal bra/mesh can be used in various breast surgeries, including breast augmentation (and auto-augmentation without an implant), breast lift, and breast reduction. It can also correct asymmetry or provide additional support for women with larger breasts.

Why Use Internal Mesh?

The internal bra/mesh is designed to support the breast tissue and provide long-lasting results. Some of the additional benefits include the following:

  • Reduces sagging: an internal bra/mesh can help reduce breast sagging, which is a common concern for women after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Improves breast shape: provides a more youthful appearance
  • Reduces the need for future surgery
  • Enhanced comfort: provides added support and comfort during physical activity, reducing discomfort and pain

Types of Internal Bra/Mesh


If you are considering a permanent internal bra/mesh in Tampa, a few options are available. One type is made of a synthetic material called polypropylene. This mesh is commonly used in hernia repair surgeries and has been adapted for use in breast surgeries. Another type of permanent mesh is made of biological materials, like pigskin or bovine tissue. These meshes are designed to integrate with the patient's own tissue over time, providing a lasting internal bra. These mesh products are most often used in breast reconstruction procedures rather than cosmetic breast surgery due to their cost.


Various options are available for a temporary internal bra/mesh. One type is made of a dissolvable material, like polyglycolic acid, that is gradually absorbed by the body, leaving behind the patient's own tissue to provide support. Another option can be used during breast lift surgery, where a lattice-like surgical device made of bioresorbable fiber can reinforce weak tissues and encourage the production of new, natural tissues. This device provides a porous framework that promotes cell migration into its pores, allowing collagen to grow and healthy blood vessels to develop, strengthening the breast tissues.

How Much Does Internal Bra/Mesh Cost?

The cost of getting an internal bra in Tampa can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the case. Factors such as the surgeon's experience and reputation, the techniques used, and the case's complexity can influence the procedure's cost. For example, highly experienced or reputable surgeons may charge more, and the procedure's complexity can affect the cost. Additionally, the location of the surgeon's practice can also impact the cost of the procedure, as larger cities often have higher operational costs.

Since it is a cosmetic procedure, health insurance does not cover the cost. The total cost may include:

  • Surgeon fees
  • Operating room costs
  • Compression garments for post-surgery
  • Anesthesia fees

However, the initial cost may not include blood tests, pre-operative testing, medical clearance exams, and prescription medications.

If you have financial limitations but want an internal bra, you can discuss financing options with Dr. Buchanan or any of the VIVIFY staff members. They offer financing plans to help patients achieve their surgical goals.

What Does Recovery Look Like?

After surgery, you will need to take some time to recover. You may experience some pain and discomfort for the first few days, but Dr. Buchanan will prescribe pain medication to help manage it. You should avoid any strenuous activity for at least four weeks after the surgery to allow your body to heal properly. You will also need to wear a supportive bra for several weeks to help minimize movement and promote healing.

After the recovery period, you should notice a significant improvement in the appearance of your breasts. The internal bra provides support and lift, resulting in a more youthful and perky appearance. You may also notice improved symmetry between your breasts, as the internal bra can help correct any unevenness. Dr. Buchanan will follow up with you to ensure your recovery is progressing as expected.
