Abstract Complete implant coverage by pectoralis major muscle in immediate breast reconstruction prevents implant exposure but restricts implant volume, increases the risk of a high-riding implant, and prevents natural ptosis. The authors hypothesized that extension of the subpectoral pocket with Vicryl mesh may produce more satisfactory results. The safety and efficiency of this technique were assessed by comparing complication rates and clinical results of the two reconstruction techniques: with and without mesh.
