Breast expanders are very special implants that serve a purpose other than normal breast implants: they are primarily used in breast reconstruction after cancer surgery and prepare the body to receive the final implants. Therefore, they are only used temporarily.
All POLYTECH breast expanders have a reinforced base to increase their stability and stretch the skin. In addition, part of the front of the Opticon® Expander is reinforced to ensure primary expansion in the lower segment. For the MeshForce™ expanders, the reinforcement runs all the way down the back and half of the front to resist excessive stretch in the upper segment.
The surface of our expanders is textured (POLYtxt®). They are available with a remote valve or an integrated valve equipped with a permanent magnet. To locate the internal valve, each expander comes with a magnet finder.
