Meet the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander!

State-of-the-art Technology

Soft to the touch

Advanced smooth surface designed to reduce inflammation and complications related to internal scar tissue seen with other conventional tissue expanders5,9

Anatomical shape

Provides a natural-looking slope in the upper part and more fullness in the lower portion during the expansion process, promoting organic results in the reconstructed breast

Magnet-free port

Labeled as MRI conditional, meaning that you can safely undergo MRI scanning during the expansion process, which to date has been seen as unsafe with other tissue expanders available on the market2

TrueFixation® system

Includes fixation tabs made from reinforced silicone, meant to improve breast symmetry and prevent possible displacement after surgery8, which provides stability throughout the expansion process

"I think that I’m a different person after having breast cancer because I think that so many things have awoken in me. I feel like you move forward. It’s like, I have so many strengths now, I feel like I’m more alive now. Waking up and seeing that my breasts were still there, I feel like it helped emotionally."

"One of the first things that I knew is that I needed to get an immediate reconstruction if it was at all possible because I knew that that was a very important part of my healing process. I challenged myself to grow in things that I had not wanted to grow in before."

"I did it because I wanted to. Why would I settle? I wanted to like the way I looked. I went to see a private doctor and asked how much it would cost, what the procedure would be, and he was the one who got me in the Motiva® program to get reconstruction."

"It was two months after my daughter was born. My breast became inflamed, we didn’t know what it was. I think that my essence, today, is due to all the strength that my mother showed me during her sickness. But I feel better, I am strong, and I want to achieve many things. "

Learn about the procedure.

Following your mastectomy procedure, you can restore the shape and volume of your breast through two options:

1. Get a breast implant. This can be done at the time of your mastectomy procedure, performed in one stage (known as direct-to-implant reconstruction or immediate reconstruction).

2. Or you can have the breast implant done at a later time, in two stages, in which the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander is used to gradually expand the soft tissues of your breast over the course of a few months11. This procedure (two-stage reconstruction) is explained in the following steps.

Motiva Flora® Tissue-Expander Insertion

During your mastectomy procedure, your surgeon will insert the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander into your breast. Your surgeon will place the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander either under or over your chest muscle (pectoralis major) and close the incision12.

Stage 1: Gradual Tissue Expansion

Over the course of the following months, your surgeon will expand the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander using small increments of saline solution injected into a port inside the tissue expander to stretch the skin gradually. Your surgeon will use an external handheld device to locate the port under the skin and inject saline solution into the tissue expander with a needle. This is commonly performed in your surgeon’s outpatient clinic every couple of weeks12.

Stage 2: Permanent Motiva® Breast-Implant Selection

Once the expansion process is complete, the second stage of the procedure is to remove the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander and replace it with a permanent Motiva® breast implant of your choice.

The Motiva® smooth implant portfolio provides a comprehensive range of implants and designed surgeries to help you achieve the look you want and help you feel whole once again.
