Tissue Expander to Implant

The most common method of breast reconstruction currently performed in the US uses tissue expanders and breast implants, usually with an ADM (acellular dermal matrix) such as Alloderm. This is usually performed as a multiple-step procedure starting with tissue expanders. In certain select cases, implant breast reconstruction can be performed in a single-stage ("direct to implant" or "one-step").
