We read with interest the article titled Bioengineered Breast: Concept, Technique, and Preliminary Results by Maxwell and Gabriel. The concept of bioengineering the breast using acellular dermal matrix and fat grafting has revolutionized prosthetic-based reconstruction; the authors contribution to the literature in this field is significant. The authors detail their method using acellular dermal matrix and fat grafting to augment the soft-tissue envelope in breast reconstruction during the second stage of breast reconstruction.
