FAQ: How long on average does it take patients using the AeroForm® to reach full tissue expansion?

Every patient is unique in their recovery process. In a recently published clinical trial, AeroForm® patients achieved full tissue expansion within a few weeks. This may make it possible for the patient to schedule and complete their breast reconstruction much sooner than under the traditional saline expansion process.


Data published to date from AirXpanders®’ U.S. and Australian-based clinical studies has demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in expansion time for women using AeroForm® compared to women undergoing traditional saline expansion. Patients in the studies completed expansion within an average of 17 days, as compared to three to six months for saline expanders.
