Prior to breast reconstruction procedures involving large-volume fat transfer, Dr. Bucky often utilizes an innovative skin and tissue-expansion device known as BRAVA®. Comprised of two, silicone gel-rimmed domes, the BRAVA® system fits securely over the breasts and applies gentle external suction to stimulate the natural expansion of skin and breast tissues. Two key benefits of using BRAVA® prior to breast reconstruction surgery are listed below.
The BRAVA® device facilitates an increase of blood supply and various growth factors within the breasts, often enabling the recipient site to accommodate newly-transferred fat more reliably.
The BRAVA® device enables larger quantities of fat to be transferred, typically resulting in greater volume and fullness for the breasts.
Ultimately, patients using BRAVA® prior to breast reconstruction with fat transfer have been able to achieve softer, more natural-appearing breasts with beautiful results.
