Moreover, every healthcare system in the world manifests a keen tendency to cut back on medical costs, which influences our surgical techniques and breast reconstruction procedures. The use of biological matrices like the acellular dermal matrix has become an acknowledged alternative in implant-based breast reconstruction, in spite of the many impediments and controversies that surround it. However, these matrices are costly and less attainable as compared to synthetic meshes that are conservative with resources and unyielding to the formation of biofilm bacteria. Accordingly, we decided to research the impact of synthetic meshes in implant-based breast reconstruction.
