Will the Use of Strattice Around my Submuscular Implant Impact Comfort & Motion?
Doctor Answers (1)
Strattice will give better coverage to implants
When your tissue coverage is thin as you describe, the use of an acellular dermal matrix graft such as Strattice can be very helpful. The stitches usually dissolve after the Strattice has adhered to the edge of the muscle. It should not affect your ability to use the muscle and is often helpful in minimizing what are called "animation deformities" which are distortions of the breast when implants are placed under the muscle.
