Tissue Expansion



Growing Extra Skin for Reconstruction

Tissue expansion enables the body to “grow“ extra skin for use in reconstructing almost any part of the body

What is tissue expansion?

Tissue expansion is a relatively straightforward procedure that enables the body to “grow“ extra 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 saline or carbon dioxide over time, causing the skin to stretch and grow. It is most commonly used for breast reconstruction following breast removal, but it’s also used to repair skin damaged by birth defects, accidents, surgery and in certain cosmetic procedures.

If your doctor is recommending tissue expansion, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure – when it can help, how it’s performed and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, however, since much depends on your individual circumstances. Please be sure to ask your surgeon if there is anything you don’t understand about the procedure.
