Tissue assessment systems that provide quantitative, objective data enable objective rather than subjective decisions. First-generation dimensional systems for breast augmentation defined a desired result dimensionally and recommended an implant to force tissues to the desired result. A second-generation system, the TEPID system, defines measurements to match the implant to the patient's tissue… CONTINUE READING
