Dr. Richard A. Baxter has a special interest in revision breast surgery, internal bra concepts, and ultrasound in aesthetic medicine. In addition to his busy private plastic surgery practice in the Seattle area, he is engaged in clinical research, figure drawing, and learning Argentine tango.
The utility of the internal bra for breast support, reconstruction, and in revision breast surgery has been recognized and various materials have been introduced for this application. As clinical experience has grown and new products have been developed, the roles of these materials are becoming better defined. This paper reviews the use of the internal bra concept to date.
