Titanised mesh implants for reconstructive and plastic surgery
The TiLOOP® Bra product family covers all indications for breast surgery with tissue reinforcing material.
- TiLOOP® Bra Pocket for pre-pectoral reconstruction/augmentation*
- TiLOOP® Bra for sub-pectoral reconstruction/augmentation
- TiLOOP® Bra MPX for mastopexy/reduction surgery/symmetrical alignment

Extra light and soft
The TiLOOP® Bra extralight (16 g/m2) introduces the least amount of foreign material into the breast. The light weight material facilitates optimal tissue adaptation, which is of particular importance for the application in the sensitive breast area.
Optimal capsule quality
Compared to simple polypropylene, the hydrophilic and titanised surface carries a reduced risk of inflammation1 and thus a reduced tendency towards the formation of connective tissue-like scars and shrinkage: combined with minimal weight and ides the ideal conditions for a permanent, stable result as well as both desirable tissue ingrowth and a vascularied, flexible, and therefore optimum capsule quality.
- Titanised Type 1a polypropylene mesh
- Weight: 16 or 35 g/m2
- Pore size: 1.0 mm
- Monofilament fabric
- Atraumatic, laser-cut edges
- EO-sterilised (ethylene oxide), pyrogen free
One of the determining factors for successful breast surgery in the long term, is the correct decision for or against the use of tissue reinforcing material (synthetic mesh or ADM).
TiLOOP® Bra mesh implants (no tissue replacement) are made of Type 1a polypropylene mesh (macroporous, light & monofilament) with a titanised, hydrophilic surface. Compared to simple polypropylene, this offers a number of advantages, which are already known in the use of titanised mesh implants for hernia surgery, such as:
