MIAMI, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- A major study published in the November 2007 edition of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, reports that the majority of women who completed a study using the Brava System increased their breast size by 150cc, or well over one full breast size. This key finding was based on a medical study, which took place in Europe, conducted by Ingrid Schlenz, M.D. and Alexandra Kaider, M. Sc. The study is titled, The Brava External Tissue Expander: Is Breast Enlargement without Surgery a Reality, and reports that long-term breast enlargement is possible with the use of an external tissue expander such as the Brava System.
Of the 40 women (age 17-53 years old) who completed the study, the average participant used the system 11 hours per day for 18-1/2 weeks resulting in a median breast volume increase of 155cc. Each woman was informed of the necessary wear time needed to successfully complete the study and were extensively surveyed on various aspects of using the system. Overall, 75% were either "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with their results. They felt that their breasts were fuller and firmer. Over 85% stated that they would "recommend it to a friend". All of the surveyed participants indicated that "the treatment was painless."
All 40 women were closely monitored after post-treatment averaging 10- months (range, 7 to 20 months). It was shown that not only did they maintain their breast volume growth, but sustained it long after the stabilization phase.
This is a significant clinical result since previous published medical studies on the Brava System had demonstrated an average breast size of 100cc, or one-cup size, when wearing the Brava System for 10 weeks.
Brava was developed specifically in mind for those women who wish to have a non-surgical alternative to breast augmentation that is not only safe, but provides long-lasting healthy results. Tens of thousands of women worldwide have used the Brava System.
The Brava System is available in the USA directly from Brava, LLC or an Authorized Physician. Brava is also available internationally through selected distributors.
