Answer

Any woman who is a candidate for tissue expander or implant-based reconstruction is a potential candidate for the use of acellular dermis and should be informed of the option. Indications for expander-implant reconstruction have been described elsewhere. See Breast Reconstruction, Expander-Implant for more information.
