How Long Does It Take for Alloderm to Completely Integrate into the Body?
I had a third breast revision surgery for capsular contracture and implant buckling (my prior surgeon put an implant 1 cm wider than my breast tissue). My current surgeon lined my lower breast with Alloderm due to extremely thin breast tissue. How long does it take for the Alloderm to integrate into my body. Also, will this affect the quadrant exercises I am supposed to do to prevent CC?
