His experience creating natural-looking breast enhancement results and his extensive involvement in cutting-edge techniques make him a top choice among women in Texas for achieving their ideal figures.

Why Consider the Internal Bra?

Women considering a breast lift or breast augmentation with lift may be candidates for the internal bra technique. Some of the best candidates include:

  • Women with weak breast tissue that may not support an implant adequately
  • Women with breast implants who suffer from recurrent breast sagging
  • Women with breast implants who have had implant malposition

Please note that to be considered as a candidate for a breast augmentation or breast lift, you must have a BMI of 40 or less.

How the Internal Bra Works

Many women would like to have higher, fuller breasts but lack the elasticity in their breast skin to support long-lasting results. When a woman’s own tissue has some weakness due to weight loss, post pregnancy changes, age or a prior surgery, additional soft tissue support is required to achieve optimal cleavage and a higher breast position.

The internal bra technique mimics the support of a push-up bra within your own tissue. Just like the cup of a push-up bra boosts the breasts to remedy sagging, the internal bra technique creates better breast support internally.

Dr. Basu uses GalaFlex, to create soft tissue reinforcement with a flexible and durable scaffold that integrates into your natural breast tissue. These scaffolds encourage natural tissue growth that will eventually reabsorb the scaffold over the course of 12 to 18 months, leaving behind natural tissue with a firm and youthful breast silhouette.

How Much Does the Internal Bra Cost in Houston?

The exact costs of the internal bra vary depending on each individual. Many women combine the internal bra with breast augmentation or other procedures. Your total costs will include facility fees, anesthesia costs and your pre- and post-op appointments.

At Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, we offer frequently special promotions for breast enhancement. We also offer plastic surgery financing options to help make your procedure even more affordable.


I had a BA revision with the internal bra technique done after I was unhappy with my previous breast augmentation. The entire process was super smooth, the staff was incredibly nice, and I’m so in love with the results! I naturally have a low-set chest and so many other doctors told me that that was just my genetics, and there was nothing to do about it… Then I came here and Dr. Basu had no doubt he could create what I wanted, and they do look exactly like the photos I showed him… Everyone was so kind and made me feel comforted getting out of surgery. I felt no pain on the way home or really much at all after that. There was some tightness, drowsiness, inflammation etc. but I was pleasantly surprised with how little pain there was on surgery day and the entire recovery process. I’m so happy with everything I had to come review. 10/10.

Listen to our Podcast About Breast Implant Revision or Replacement

Breast implants need a “redo” most commonly because of volume loss from having kids, aging or weight loss, old implants, or health-related concerns. Dr. Basu shares all the different ways breast implant revision can be accomplished, including implant removal, replacement, with a breast lift, with fat transfer, or with the advanced internal bra technique.

Your Internal Bra Surgery

During your consultation with Dr. Basu, he will explain how the internal bra works in greater detail. He will also provide you with post-operative care instructions and a more specific idea of the results you can expect.

The internal bra technique is often combined with a limited scar periareolar lift or a full breast lift to tighten any loose skin on the breast. Depending on your individual case, the surgery can take anywhere from 3 to 5 hours. The internal bra is an outpatient surgery, so you can return home once your procedure is finished. In many cases, the internal bra can re-engineer a woman’s natural breast tissue to achieve results that a breast augmentation and lift alone simply cannot achieve.
