CONTOUR PROFILE® Tissue Expander With BufferZone® Self-sealing Patch Area
The CONTOUR PROFILE® Tissue Expander is used for breast reconstruction following mastectomy. In order to provide a Tissue Expander with elasticity and integrity, the shell is made with successive cross-linked layers of silicone elastomer. Superior and anterior reinforcement allows for directional expansion in the lower pole of the device. The device has an integral, silicone elastomer, magnetically detected, injection site, and incorporates a BufferZone™ area with self-sealing technology to the front patch of the device in order to minimize and/or prevent device leakage in the event of an accidental needle puncture. The SILTEX® Textured Shell provides a disruptive surface for collagen interface. The expander is intended for temporary subcutaneous or submuscular implantation and is not intended for use beyond six months.
CPX3™ Breast Tissue Expanders offer the same great features as our original CONTOUR PROFILE® Tissue Expanders, but with the added convenience of suture tabs for enhanced stability.
