Why Is Expansion Needed?
It is often necessary to remove one or both breasts to treat or prevent breast cancer. In order to have breast reconstruction, the tissues of the chest area must be expanded. The expansion allows for an area suited for breast augmentation and implantation. An AeroForm Tissue Expander can be used for this purpose.
AirXpanders AeroForm® Technology places control back in your hands as it allows you to expand the affected area. The device uses a wireless remote, that you control, to provide the expansion needed. The process is very different from saline expanders and is quicker and significantly less painful.
How Does AirXpanders Technology Work?
After fighting cancer, we feel it is essential to provide you as much comfort as possible during the reconstructive process. AirXpanders Technology allows us to do that. The technology works similarly to remotely operated airbags. The expanders are placed in your chest area. Expansion happens from the inside your body over the course of a few months.
You control the rate of your expansion with the remote in short 15 to 20-second bursts, sparing you from saline expansions that require weekly trips to the doctor for injections.
Not all practices may offer this expansion option. The technology is cutting edge and is changing the face of how we address expansion for breast augmentation in cancer survivors. Our practice is happy to be able to provide you with multiple treatment options and the ability to have control over the next stage of your recovery.
