  • Direct Implant

It is also known as a single staged implant reconstruction. If the patient has enough skin left after the mastectomy, this stage is ideal. In this process, the silicone gel or saline implant is placed at the location of the breast that needs an implant. For implant placement, a pocket is created under the skin. This procedure can also be done right after the mastectomy. The inner shape of the new breast is also created with the help of heaped human skin, which is manufactured with the help of human donors. The skins are usually named as All oderm. To maintain proper shape, the material is stitched inside the implant pocket.

  • Two-Stage Implant Reconstruction

This process is very common nowadays for implant-based reconstruction of breasts. It comprises of two stages. It is designed especially for the person who has no skin left after the mastectomy. For this procedure, the tissue expander is used. The first stage involves the placing of a tissue expander.

The second stage comes some months later, after with abundant rest, in which the tissue expander is removed with saline or silicone implant. The placement of tissue expander is beneath the chest muscle with skin over it. The first stage also involves expanding the implant pocket to make room for the desired sized implant. The size should match the existing breast. This procedure requires maximum 2hrs. Thepost-op care in this procedure differs from others, as refraining from physical work, heavy lifting etc. for 3weeks. The patient also needs to stay overnight after the surgery.
