SERI Silk Scaffold for correction of acquired breast deformity By Vishnu Rumalla on November 10, 2013

Dr Rumalla recently completed training in using a new revolutionary silk based mesh to help correct the difficult problem of implant malposition from breast augmentation.  Two of these acquired implant malpositions are “bottoming out” of the implant and lateral displacement of a breast implant, “armpit implant when you lie down”.  Allergan, a leader in breast implants and injectibles like Botox and Juvederm, has received FDA approval to use the revolutionary material, called SERI, in correcting acquired deformities after breast augmentation.  The silk mesh is treated by a process which gives it unique properties that allow it to be absorbed and incorporated into thinned breast tissues.  At Tarrant Plastic Surgery preventing implant malposition after breast augmentation begins with careful surgical planning.   This includes a predominant submuscular position for breast implants and using lifts when needed.  Furthermore, the practice encourages religious bra use and closely follows its patients during regular visits with Dr Rumalla. Dr Rumalla sees several patients a month, mostly operated by other surgeons, who are seeking correction of acquired asymmetries and deformities of the breast after primary breast augmentation.   SERI scaffold technology represents one more option in correcting these difficult problems.
