Breast reconstructions are routinely offered to all my patients who require a mastectomy. My breast reconstruction operations involves the use of a silicone breast implant. I use only high quality breast implant manufacturers such as Mentor which has a lifetime guarantee on their implants.
In the past, I performed only sub-pectoral implant reconstructions where implants were placed behind the pectoralis muscle. As of 2019, I routine perform the pre-pectoral reconstructions where the implant is placed in front of the pectoralis muscle. This new technique leads to less tissue trauma, post-operative pain and enhanced cosmetic results.
All my breast reconstruction operations combine the use of a silicone implant along with a mesh called an acellular dermal matrix (ADM) to cover the implant. The ADM mesh which I routinely use in my reconstruction is made by Braxon which is made originally produced from porcine skin. I can also use synthetic meshes on patient request.
