Orlando plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani
is using an innovative tissue-strengthening technique to improve outcomes of breast augmentation and breast revision surgeries. Dr. Trevisani says that Acellular Dermal Matrix can strengthen the breast tissue during any type of cosmetic or revision breast surgery and works to reinforce and support the existing breast tissue to create a more natural appearance.
Dr. Trevisani is using the Strattice® grafting technique for patients who have crippled breasts because of implant complications, and to patients who naturally have very little breast tissue. He says that that this technique, coupled with the right breast augmentation or enhancement procedure, has been very effective for increasing the patient’s confidence and pride in their appearance.
The Strattice® tissue is a sheet of sterile tissue derived from pig skin. It can be implanted into the soft tissues relatively easily and supports the development of new blood vessel networks. It can also stimulate cell regeneration so it adapts very easily into most parts of the body. Dr. Trevisani points out that while donor tissue offers similar benefits, Strattice® is still better because it produces firmer tissue and more natural-looking results. In the case of breast implants, this grafting technique can also reduce the risk of breast implant migration and is very effective for securing the implants in place.
