Why the expander put in?

In breast reconstruction the insurance will pay for the procedure.

If it is cosmetic, then talk with your doctor He/She may talk with the company and mabe they will give the expanders at a discount or free.

As for the cost, like any complication, the issue of who pays for resurgery for any reason should have been discussed prior to surgery. Complications can appen with any surgery.
