Which Breast Implant Product Should I Choose?

Appearance, feel and your own personal journey have the biggest influence on your implant choice. Let’s compare your options.

What is a Breast Tissue Expander?

Expanders create a space by stretching the tissue and preparing your skin to accommodate the implant at the time of exchange.


During your breast reconstruction procedure, your surgeon will insert a tissue expander with a port and gradually fill it with sterile saline fluid over several months. Your breast tissue expands to fit the space.


Once your breast tissue reaches the appropriate size, your surgeon will replace the expander with the implant.

*Design Fact: Fluid travels the path of least resistance. The reinforced anterior and posterior patches drive fluid towards the lower pole of the expander. Lower pole expansion more closely mimics the female breast (which is tapered in appearance).
