Scientists from Georgia have found that, although a vacuum device promoted as a breast-enhancer does increase a woman's cup size, few women may have the time and commitment to use the product. The device, known as the BRAVA system, requires women to wear two plastic domes over their breasts for 10 hours a day for 10 weeks straight.// The domes are connected to a battery operated, computerized vacuum device. Skipping even a day adds a week to the treatment.
However, the device does seem to be a viable alternative to surgery for women who want bigger breasts, according to Dr. Richard J. Greco, of the Georgia Institute for Plastic Surgery in Savannah. It is only appropriate for women who are a B cup or smaller and are willing to commit to the price and time required, he said.
Previous studies conducted by the inventors of BRAVA suggested that the device could lead to tissue growth not just temporary swelling resulting in long-term breast enhancement. Greco, a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' Device and Technology Committee, attempted to verify those results in an independent study.
While many women expressed interest in the device, only eight women ended up in the study.Some women couldn't commit to the time involved, others had breasts that were too large or chests that were too narrow. Some felt the system was not worth the relatively small gain (one cup size) made in breast size.
According to Greco, a few patients dropped out because we could not make a definite statement as to whether or not this tissue growth stimulation would increase their likelihood of breast cancer in the future. The report says, of the original eight, two dropped out "because of the inconvenience the device created in their lives. Three of the six women who completed the study experienced an increase in breast size that was equal to one bra cup or more. The remaining three women experienced roughly half as much Page: 1 2 Related medicine news :1
