Abstract Breast reconstruction is offered to women undergoing mastectomy or breast conservation, given its safe nature and highly aesthetic reconstructive outcomes. Breast implants are safe, offer flexibility of sizes and projections, and shorter recovery. Autologous flaps allow women to avoid prosthetic devices, using skin and fat to replace breast tissue. The increasing frequency of nipple-sparing mastectomy, autologous fat grafting, use of acellular dermal matrices, and prepectoral prosthetic reconstruction have enhanced aesthetic outcomes. Breast conservation outcomes have been enhanced by immediate oncoplasti...

ConclusionsTLA represents a safe and efficacious technique for performing breast augmentation surgery with sub-muscular implant positioning. This technique guarantees good pain control during and after surgery and has low incidence of postoperative side effects. Patients subjected to sub-muscular breast augmentation with TLA were satisfied.Level of Evidence IVThis journal requires that authors assign a level of evidence to each article.

ConclusionInitial and weekly x-ray acquisition combined with daily surface imaging seems adequate both for routine PMRT positioning and to monitor potential changes in the treatment area. The limits of the surface imaging system, however, need to be better specified among patients without breast implants or in those with large implant reconstructions.

Silicone breast-implant makers Polytech Health &Aesthetics and G&G Biotechnology are getting together in a stock-swap merger. G&G designed the world’s first lightweight breast implant, the B-Lite, to reduce the impact of gravity on the reconstructed or augmented breast using technology developed by NASA to make its implants up to 30% lighter. The company sells its products in more than 30 countries, not including the U.S. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jacky Govrin and his brother, biomedical engineer Dael Govreen-Segal, founded G&G in Haifa in 2005. Polytech, which makes 2,000 varieties of breast im...
