Abstract

The use of acellular dermal matrices and synthetic meshes is gaining popularity in direct-to-implant breast reconstruction, allowing the complete coverage of the prosthesis with greater pocket control and improved cosmesis. In this concise review, we present the advantages of acellular dermal matrices and resorbable or nonresorbable synthetic meshes in implant-based breast reconstruction, we discuss the risk of postoperative complications, and we raise their contribution in the growing interest of prepectoral breast reconstruction.
