The titanium mesh as “camouflage mesh” in prosthetic breast surgery?

Klinikum Offenburg, Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery

Through tissue integration the titanium meshes can develop a “neofascia” in the breast, in addition,it shows a very low capsular fibrosis rate, which was not to be expected due to the radiotherapy. A capsular fibrosis rate of 4.3% corresponds to the value of patients who have not undergone radiotherapy over a period of 10 years.
