Breast expanders โ€“ one step closer to your new breast ๐Ÿ’—

Sometimes immediate reconstruction is not recommended or not possible, usually because of the type of tumour or because the patient needs further treatments such as radiotherapy.

In such cases, a secondary reconstruction is performed. It requires several steps. Firstly, the skin must be expanded using a tissue expander. A tissue expander is a special type of temporary implant that is inserted unfilled, and is then filled with saline solution via a remote or an integrated valve over the course of several weeks, to slowly expand the skin until there is enough tissue to insert a permanent implant. Then, the expander is replaced with the permanent implant in the desired size.

The variety of implant shapes available today makes it possible to achieve a very natural look.
