Every year, thousands of women undergo breast reconstruction. This procedure is highly effective for restoring the natural appearance of breasts that have been altered due to a mastectomy. One of the common methods used is implant-based breast reconstruction.

Implant-based breast reconstruction is a sophisticated technique that uses breast implants to recreate the appearance of the breasts.

Typically, this technique first begins with the use of an empty inflatable implant called a tissue expander. Over time, this is used to create a space large enough to fit the breast implant. Later, the expander is exchanged for an implant during a separate operation.
