OC Plastic Surgeon Reveals Non-Surgical Method for Correcting Breast Implant Asymmetry

Dr. Daniel Mills Describes the Benefits of His Shoelace "Breast Cast" Technique in a Recent Article Published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal

LAGUNA BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - July 23, 2014) - Recently, the Aesthetic Surgery Journal (ASJ) published an article authored by Orange County plastic surgeon Daniel Mills, MD. Titled, Shoelace Breast Cast, the piece details an innovative post-operative technique designed by Dr. Mills to non-surgically correct particular breast asymmetries that may appear after breast augmentation surgery with implants.

According to the article, "Behind capsular contracture, implant maldisplacement remains the second most common reported complication following an augmentation mammaplasty." Dr. Mills goes on to note that several surgical options are available to correct breast asymmetry, though all surgical breast revision techniques require a second operation and extra financial costs, and they can also run the risk of producing additional complications. To help eliminate these factors that accompany revision surgery, Dr. Mills employs his shoelace "breast cast" technique.

In a recent blog post on his website highlighting the revolutionary technique, the Orange County plastic surgeon writes, "Placing shoelaces underneath the inframammary fold of the breast early in the postoperative period can often reduce the appearance of a 'double bubble,' correct breast asymmetry, and decrease projection of the lower pole of the breast." Additionally, he notes that the shoelace technique also provides support for the weight of the breasts while the new inframammary fold sets in place at an ideal position.

Based on his 19 years of experience utilizing the shoelace "breast cast," Dr. Mills says the best shoelaces are two flat, wide-bodied laces which are then tied together and wrapped around the neck, breasts, and back in an intricately-specific design. When worn properly for a specified period of time, he says the shoelace "breast cast" can often correct breast asymmetries caused by implant malposition without the need for revision breast surgery.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash.

A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
