Internal bra helps cancer survivors

Women who face breast reconstruction after cancer surgery are being offered a boost by a mesh implant that acts like ‘an internal bra’.

The material, commonly used in hernia-repair operations, is shaped into an internal cup around the breast where it acts as a scaffold for new soft tissue to grow on, effectively encouraging the body to build its own supportive tissue.

The body absorbs the mesh over time, but the new tissue grown around it ends up three to five times stronger than tissue that the body would have produced on its own.

Great idea. Maybe. Ten years from now there will be TV commercials that offer legal filings for those who got the implants and had a negative outcome.
