The Skinny on SERI Strips

Cosmetically Enhanced or Reconstructed Breasts Have a New Best Friend

Newport Beach, Calif. –Women love the feel of silk on their skin. Now, a bioengineered silk is helping women recover from and support surgical breast reconstruction and augmentation, and it’s worn internally.

The new SERI Surgical Scaffold is a silk mesh inserted under the skin that’s remarkably effective at helping to lift breasts as women recover from a number of surgical procedures, including breast reconstruction, a breast lift or breast implants. The extra support of the surgical scaffold helps the breasts settle into the desired position during the healing process. And that’s not all. SERI acts much like an internal corset to tighten the tummy and provide even further support for the new or restored perkiness.

“I can’t stress enough what a breakthrough SERI Surgical Scaffold is,” says board-certified cosmetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Tenley Lawton. “All women want to recover as quickly as possible from their breast augmentation, with the best possible results. Adding a little internal support works wonders, and it’s especially beneficial for older women or women with weakened immune systems who may have greater worries over the recovery process.”

SERI promotes tissue and collagen regeneration, and, in about two years’ time, it’s absorbed back into the body.

“This is different from other surgical scaffolds,” stresses Dr. Lawton. “Not only is it derived from silk, it’s reabsorbed into the body once its job is done. Women are seeing fantastic results, and I’m thrilled SERI Surgical Scaffold is now available to my patients.”
