Which Breast Implant Product Should I Choose?
Personal factors may include implant appearance and feel. You may also want to understand the safety of an implant. Your surgeon is best placed to talk through your options and tailor an approach best suited for you.
Let’s look at some options in the MENTOR® range.
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 (not beyond six 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.
