  • The results suggest that the use of acellular dermal matrix in the setting of tissue expander/implant reconstruction neither reduces postoperative pain nor accelerates the rate of postoperative expansion. An examination of its efficacy in improving long-term outcomes following tissue expander/implant reconstruction is warranted.
