    Internal Bra Technique for Breast Augmentation

    Internal Bra Technique for Breast Augmentation

    It’s disappointing when you’ve had breast augmentation and the results don’t last as long as you had hoped. Weakened breast tissue is often the cause, and factors like having children, losing weight, or even genetics play a huge role. The Internal Bra Technique is the answer, and can give you back the look you desire.


    With 17 years of expertise in complex breast surgery, Dr. Basu shares why GalaFLEX has become a trusted game changer in his operating room. Hear how the Internal Bra Technique can be used for all kinds of implant revision with great success, and what he recommends instead for the patient who doesn’t want implants.

    How Charisse Lost 192 Lbs & Got Epic Body Lift Results

    How Charisse Lost 192 Lbs & Got Epic Body Lift Results

    After a lifetime trapped in her body, Charisse changed her relationship with food and lost 192 pounds. Left with painful loose skin, she researched plastic surgeons with body lift experience in Houston and reached out to Dr. Basu for help. Over 300 pounds at her heaviest, Charisse recalls the moment on a cruise ship that pushed her to change her life. As her body grew smaller, the extra skin became an uncomfortable daily reminder of the person she left behind.


    With Dr. Basu’s help, Charisse planned a body transformation in three stages, beginning with a circumferential body lift, fat transfer, and arm lift. Eighteen months later, she underwent a breast lift and back lift, and is now preparing for a thigh lift for the third and final stage of her transformation. Today Charisse is a self-described “gym rat” who dances competitively and refuses to believe there is an age limit on investing in confidence.
