Acellular dermal matrix and similar meshes are used in breast reconstruction to cover the inferior implant pocket. We considered whether using a modified dual-plane technique in immediate breast reconstruction could improve the outcome when compared with mesh reconstruction. The paper presents a case of a patient who underwent one-stage bilateral immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) with 470 g implants, using alloplastic mesh in one side and the composed dual-plane pocket in the other. In the… CONTINUE READING
