Tissue expansion in reconstruction of the burned breast

Tissue expansion in reconstruction of the burned breast Burns of the anterior chest can cause significant distortion of the developing breast. The skin, nipple–areola complex and breast tissue can be injured to a variable degree, leading to abnormal breast development. Reconstruction of the burned breast becomes necessary when the overlying burn scars cause restriction of normal breast growth and development. The use of tissue expansion in the reconstruction of the burned breast provides an alternative to traditional methods. Two clinical cases of breast burn scar reconstruction in young girls using tissue expansion are reported; in one case this was combined with an atypical reduction mammaplasty. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
