I perform my implant-based breast reconstruction independently. All my breast reconstruction operations combine the use of a silicone breast implant along with a mesh called an acellular dermal matrix (ADM) to cover the 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 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, shorter operation time and this lead to less post-operative pain and enhanced cosmetic results.
The ADM mesh which I routinely use in my reconstruction is made by Braxon, is originally produced from cow skin. It is an expensive medical product that undergoes significant laboratory processing and is proven to be clinically safe. I can also use synthetic (non-animal based) meshes on patient request.
