Tissue Expansion

Tissue Expansion | Plastic Surgery | El Paso Texas | Board Certified SurgeonIf Your Doctor Recommends Tissue Expansion…

Tissue expansion is a relatively straightforward procedure that enables the body to stretch the skin for use in reconstructing almost any part of the body. A silicone balloon expander is inserted under the skin near the area to be repaired and then gradually filled with salt water over time, causing the skin to stretch and grow. Although tissue expansion is most commonly used for breast reconstruction, it also may be used to repair skin damaged by birth defects, accidents or surgery, and in certain cosmetic procedures.
