Houston Plastic Surgeon Uses Innovative Material for Reinforced Breast Augmentation
March 7, 2013 - HOUSTON, TX
Dr. James Boynton, a board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, seeks to help women achieve br**ts with youthful, sensual contours. At Boynton Plastic Surgery, he offers breast augmentation options that add volume and fullness to the br**ts, restore youthful contours, diminish sagginess, or reduce the size of br**ts that may be too large. Dr. Boynton is committed to state-of-the-art breast surgery and has recently incorporated Strattice Reconstructive Tissue Matrix into his surgical technique.
Strattice, first introduced in the United States in February 2008, is an acellular tissue matrix designed to amalgamate with a patient's pre-existing natural breast tissue. Dr. Boynton uses Strattice for cases when the patient needs additional tissue to achieve their desired look or when a patient's natural soft-tissue is weakened, damaged, and in need of repair.
According to Dr. Boynton, Strattice reinforces weak tissue and also supports natural tissue regeneration through rapid revascularization, cell repopulation, and white cell migration. The material is strong, pliable, and derived from porcine dermis to create a sterile product. In addition to aiding with successful surgical outcomes, Strattice benefits Dr. Boynton's Houston plastic surgery patients by decreasing the chance of complications and reducing the need for revision procedures.
By using Strattice, Dr. Boynton is better able to:
- Control the position of breast pocket
- Provide the proper support for the implant
- Redefine the fold location
- Smooth wrinkles and ripples on the skin surface by reinforcing thin tissue
For Dr. Boynton's patients who are seeking revision breast surgery, Strattice can be used to address challenges that result from weak or inadequate tissue including:
- Bottoming out
- Fold malpositions
- Wrinkling and rippling
For women wondering if breast revision is appropriate for them, Dr. Boynton recommends visiting a board-certified plastic surgeon for a consultation. There are many factors to consider before a decision is made and Dr. Boynton discusses with each prospective patient their unique situation. While some women desire revision breast surgery soon after their initial breast augmentation, others develop complications years after their initial procedure. Dr. Boynton strives to work with his patients to develop treatment plans that meet their unique expectations and yield desirable results.
