TiLOOP® Bra MPX


The titanised mesh TiLOOP® Bra MPX fixes the subcutaneously dissected corpus mammae in a mastopexy, symmetrical alignment or reduction surgery.


Benefits

Complete portfolio  The TiLOOP® Bra product family covers all indications for breast surgery with tissue reinforcing material.

TiLOOP® Bra Pocket ▸ Pre-pectoral reconstruction/augmentation

TiLOOP® Bra ▸ Sub-pectoral reconstruction/augmentation

TiLOOP® Bra MPX ▸ Mastopexy/reduction surgery/symmetrical alignment

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.

Customisable  TiLOOP® Bra MPX is cut at the 12 o’clock position and is available in three sizes. The titanised mesh can be ideally adapted to fit the size and shape of the breast, thus providing the desired long-term lifting effect.

Practice

In mastopexy, symmetrical alignment or reduction surgery, the titanised TiLOOP® Bra MPX mesh implant fixes the subcutaneously dissected corpus mammae.

The cut at the 12 o’clock position enables the flat TiLOOP® Bra MPX to be easily shaped into a three-dimensional form without wringles.

Knowledge

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* 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:

  • better cell growth2
  • lower risk of inflammation1
  • less scarring3
  • less shrinkage of the mesh1

*TiLOOP® Bra mesh implants are not a tissue replacement.
