Kendra Powell, a mother of two, was feeling down about how her body looked after pregnancy. Like many women, her breasts had become a little droopy after her weight gain and loss.
“They’re not tight and young anymore, my breasts became saggy and loose and made me feel unattractive,” said Kendra. But a new surgical mesh she researched on-line, called GalaFLEX, gave her hope. “I was willing to try anything that would make them stay up and be more firm.”
Kendra went to William P. Adams, Jr., MD, a board certified plastic surgeon in Dallas, Texas who is experienced in surgical scaffolding meshes.
The Mesh that Makes a Difference
Women want their breasts lifted, says Dr. Adams. “Whenever I see breast lift patients in my office, they push their breasts up with their hands and say, ‘I want my breasts to look like this,’ and what they’re doing is adding support to the breast.” Adams used GalaFLEX on Kendra to give her breasts more support.
“Meshes have been around for years in plastic surgery but the unique thing about these natural scaffolds is they are absorbable.” Adams says GalaFLEX provides a new tool that surgeons haven’t had before. Once the mesh is absorbed into the body over a period of about 12 to 18 months, it becomes part of your own tissue, making the breast tissue 4 to 5 times stronger.
“I look like a 20 year old now, not an 80 year old,” said Kendra. “I am so grateful I got this surgery, the only thing I would change is that I would have gotten it 10 years ago!”
“Kendra is now about a year out after the surgery; her mesh is starting to absorb and go away but what’s being left behind is her own tissue which is going to give her long term support in the breast to keep the shape that she wants,” said Adams.
If you’re like Kendra and millions of other women, a scaffolding mesh material like GalaFLEX may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
