Mentor's Becker™ Breast Implants
SILTEX™ BECKER™ Expander/Breast Implant (ie, BECKER™ Implant), is now readily available in Canada for use during single-stage breast reconstruction. Previously available under Special Access only, the BECKER™ Expander/Breast Implant has recently received Health Canada approval for use, offering women a single-stage breast reconstruction option, which means a reduced operative time, fewer procedures, and a shorter recovery period. The BECKER™ Implant is available in 3 models: CONTOUR PROFILE™ BECKER™ 35, SILTEX™ Round BECKER™ 25, and the SILTEX™ Round BECKER™ 50. While the entire BECKER™ family can be used for single-stage reconstruction, they are also suitable for the second half of a two-stage procedure.
