TISSUE EXPANDERS


NATRELLE® 133 SHAPED TISSUE EXPANDERS

After a mastectomy, a tissue expander may be used to help stretch out the skin and tissue to accommodate the breast implant. An inflatable silicone balloon-type is inserted into the chest and gradually filled with a saline to stretch the skin, similar to abdominal skin during pregnancy. This creates the room needed for the permanent implant to be inserted later.
