Breast enhancement and augmentation are common procedures in the plastic and cosmetic surgery world. Unfortunately, the results of breast augmentation don’t always stay permanent, due to weak tissue and adaptations of the body.
To correct any asymmetry or contracture that has occurred, Strattice Reconstructive Tissue Matrix is quickly becoming an important and reliable tool. It is designed to reinforce weak tissue, and assists Dr. Crofts in correcting complications after breast surgery.
What is it?
Who is it used for?
- Bottoming Out / Stretch Deformity: The Breast drops lower than desired due to skin stretching.
- Fold Malposition: Lower or side breast border moves down or to the side.
- Symmastia: Breasts migrate too close together. Reinforcement may be needed on the interior sides of the breasts.
- Wrinkling and Rippling: Visible folds and wrinkling generally attributed to thin tissue.
- Capsular Contracture: Capsule around the breast tightens, or becomes abnormally thick. This is the most common reason for reoperation within four years of primary augmentation.*
