Breast Expanders

Breast expanders are very special implants that serve a purpose other than normal breast implants: they are primarily used in breast reconstruction after cancer surgery and prepare the body to receive the final implants. Therefore, they are only used temporarily and removed after a maximum of six months.

To preserve the tissue, breast expanders are used unfilled. Then they are filled to the desired volume. POLYTECH manufactures a wide range of breast expanders, offering a variety of solutions for their individual needs.

We focus mainly on anatomical breast expanders, because the most aesthetic results can be achieved with them. The shape of our breast expander is adapted to the models of our SublimeLine®. For this reason, they are the same as the corresponding implants: Meme®, Replicon®, Opticon® and Optimam®.

The surface of our expanders is textured (POLYtxt®). Depending on the shape (SublimeLine®), they have a standard distance valve (Même®) or an internal valve equipped with a permanent magnet (Replicon®, Opticon® and Optimam®). To locate the internal valve, each expander comes with a magnet finder.
