AirXpanders, a California-based breast reconstruction company, recently received EU CE Mark approval for its non-needle, self-operated tissue expansion system. The AeroForm device is used to stretch muscles and skin to create room for a breast implant. Since it can be challenging for doctors to create a space for an implant without deforming breast tissue, the AeroForm device is a useful tool for many patients who are getting an implant post-mastectomy. In addition to reducing surgery times for patients, the AeroForm ensures that a breast is expanded in an even and consistent manner. This ensures that an implant will have a well-balanced and realistic fit.
