Aesthetic BreastRecon

Since day one, our commitment has been centered around women’s well-being with a substantive belief that, as an industry, we can do better for women and their breast health. To achieve our goal, we based our efforts and actions on science and clinical data to bring safety through innovation and add value to the lives of women and surgeons worldwide.

This is the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander

Enhancing the standard of care for women undergoing two-stage breast reconstruction.
Facing cancer is without a doubt a challenging passage. Whether you are undergoing surgical intervention to cure cancer or prevent it, the surgical options, adjuvant therapies, and outcomes can be overwhelming. We understand that breast cancer is life-changing: It is a path you do not choose, cannot plan for, or anticipate. However, at Motiva®, we aim to help women through this path, and we strive to bring women safe solutions when undergoing breast reconstruction surgery.
The Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander is the first-of-its-kind MRI-conditional breast tissue expansion device that is not contraindicated during MRI screening2.
Constructed with state-of-the-art technologies, this tissue expander provides women undergoing two-stage breast reconstruction safety and stability during the tissue expansion process3,8.

The First-Of-Its-Kind Magnet-Free Tissue Expander

Soft to the touch

Comes with the iconic cell-friendly Smoothsilk® surface designed to reduce inflammation and complications related to internal scar tissue seen with other conventional tissue expanders5,9.

Designed to mimic the natural look of the native breast shape

Provides a smooth-looking slope in the upper part and more fullness in the lower portion during the expansion process. This is intended to mimic the natural shape of the contralateral breast and promote organic results in the reconstructed breast.

Magnet-Free Port

First breast tissue expansion device labeled as MRI conditional. Because of its magnetic-free port, women 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.
Unlike traditional tissue expanders with magnetic ports, the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander does not use high-density metals or magnets to locate the port externally once inside the breast.

Symmetry and Safety: 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.

Have peace of mind during your tissue expansion journey

Breakthrough MRI Compatible Technologies
A common issue with tissue expanders with magnetic ports is the potential complications during vital MRI scanning, for which magnetic port tissue expanders have been classified as unsafe10. The Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander was purposely built to remove the potential barriers and to offer women a safer solution to MRI scanning during the tissue expansion process.
Integral to the design of the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander is the non-magnetic port detection system. The advanced technology of the RFID port offers conditional MRI labeling compared to tissue expanders with magnetic ports, thus potentially reducing the drawbacks seen in conventional tissue expanders2,10.

Two-Stage Reconstruction with the Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander:

The Procedure

Following your mastectomy procedure, one of the ways you can restore the shape and volume of your breast is with the use of a breast implant.
This can be done at the time of your mastectomy procedure, known as immediate reconstruction, or you can have it done at a later time. Implant-based reconstruction can also be performed in either one stage (known as direct-to-implant reconstruction) or 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.

Motiva Flora® Tissue Expander + MotivaHybrid® + Ergonomix® Implants

One of the most common concerns with women undergoing breast reconstruction after removing and treating cancer is how their breast or breasts will look after the mastectomy procedure13.
At Motiva®, we strive to bring not only safe solutions and innovative products to help women achieve their results, but also cutting-edge concepts in reconstructive techniques14.

MotivaHybrid® Reconstruction

We have brought women the option of a natural-looking and feeling breast reconstruction using the MotivaHybrid® designed surgery.
Adding MotivaHybrid® to the reconstruction surgery is combining implant-based reconstruction with your own fat (taken from areas with some fat to spare) in addition to a next-generation Motiva® implant to reconstruct your breast, and it offers several advantages over implant-based reconstruction alone14,15.

By combining breast recon with our latest implant Ergonomix2® and grafts of your own purified fat extracted with Puregraft®, your surgeon is able to replace breast tissue like-for-like with the implant to mimic your original breast while sculpting and shaping, to produce a more natural soft result14,15.
But that’s not all! By using your fat to provide additional coverage over the implant, the MotivaHybrid® surgery also provides the option of having the implants placed above the muscle, thus minimizing some of the common issues seen with this type of placement, such as pain and muscle distortion14,15.
