  • Have any of the following conditions or situations present:
  • Post mastectomy surgical removal of the breast for cancer or other disease;
  • Post trauma or post surgery where there was total or partial removal of the breast resulting in significant deformity;
  • Severe ptosis requiring reconstruction;
  • Any congenital or acquired discrepancy in breast size such as to represent a significant physical deformity.
  • Adequate tissue available to cover implants.
  • Saline-filled implants are not an appropriate choice.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Advanced fibrocystic disease considered to be premalignant without accompanying subcutaneous mastectomy.
  • Existing carcinoma of the breast, without mastectomy.
  • Abscess of infection in the body at the time of enrollment.
  • Pregnant or nursing.
  • Have any disease, including uncontrolled diabetes, which is clinically known to impact wound healing ability.
  • Show tissue characteristics which are clinically incompatible with mammaplasty.
  • Have, or under treatment for any condition which, in the opinion of the surgeon, may constitute an unwarranted surgical risk.
  • Are not willing to undergo further surgery for revision, if medically required.
  • Diagnosis of lupus or scleroderma.
