Is it possible to have a simple implant procedure without expanders if you have a lot of skin tissue left?
Yes, absolutely, if you are willing to have Alloderm (acellular dermis) used to help support the implant. We specialize microsurgical reconstruction using your own tissue so we don’t actually do this procedure in our practice but there are plastic surgeons in every metropolitan area who do. If you are in or near the Charleston area we can give you names of surgeons who are especially good at this procedure. We know many out of our area too if you’d like to identify where you are located we can see if we know anyone to suggest you consult.
