The surgeons at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery have partnered with Lifecell™ to offer our patients Alloderm® Tissue Matrix as part of every breast reconstruction procedure.
Expander and Implant
Alloderm® Tissue Matrix, used with a tissue expander and implant, is one option for breast reconstruction that can help minimize possible surgical complications and as a result of innovative surgical techniques, it may provide a more desirable aesthetic result.
The Alloderm® Tissue Matrix Advantage
Alloderm® Tissue Matrix helps our surgeons at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery recreate breasts that are more natural looking and feeling than traditional breast implant reconstruction techniques. Alloderm® Tissue Matrix may also lessen the potential of developing other problems that can occur with breast reconstruction surgery.
Innovative surgical techniques using Alloderm® Tissue Matrix may help surgeons create natural looking breasts because:
- Forms an “internal bra” which serves as a hammock for the implant to sit in, keeping it in the preferred position
- Allows your surgeon greater control of the implant position which helps achieve the breast shape and size you want
How Alloderm® Tissue Matrix works
- Alloderm® Tissue Matrix provides a “scaffold,” or framework, which allows new cells to grow through it and new blood vessels to be formed, allowing your own infection-fighting white blood cells to travel to your breast, helping your body to heal itself
- Alloderm® Tissue Matrix is designed to be recognized by your body in order to minimize the risk of rejection
- By becoming part of you, Alloderm® Tissue Matrix behaves in the way as your own tissue
Helping Minimize Complications
In order to help prevent unwanted setbacks, Alloderm® Tissue Matrix may help in the following ways:
- Helps cover the implant, cushioning the feel of the implant
- May mask any visibility of the implant through the skin, as well as reduce other potential problems such as bottoming out and symmastia
