Single Stage Reconstruction With Alloderm
Breast reconstruction is sometimes performed in a single stage procedure when appropriate. It is possible in the appropriate patient to place the implant directly in the first stage following the mastectomy. Dr. Spear carefully elevates your pectoralis major muscle and secures the implant in place. A piece of specialized tissue called “Alloderm”, is secured over the lower pole of the implant to reinforce and stabilize the coverage of the implant and inframammary fold. If you are interested in a single stage procedure, you should discuss this option with Dr. Spear.
