Mastectomy surgery creates a desire in many patients to seek out breast reconstruction surgery. One option for a patient’s breast reconstruction is the implantation of breast implants, which restore the volume taken away by mastectomy. In order to make room for these implants, it is often necessary to use tissue expanders.
Tissue expanders are prosthetics used to increase the size of the tissues of the chest wall. These prosthetics are gradually filled with a saline solution in order to slowly increase volume, creating correctly sized pockets for the breast implants.
