Remote controlled breast implants? A cancer breakthrough!

33% of women choose to get breast reconstruction surgery after having a mastectomy. This low rate may come as a surprise to some, but when you consider today's long process of using needle-based, saline expanders, you might see why some women opt out of this process. Now, a new remote controlled device that is helping ease some of that pain and fear.
A new remote controlled device called the Aeroform that uses air instead of saline. It cuts the expansion time from months to a couple of weeks, and it allows women to inflate the implant at their own rate, up to three times a day, with no needles! All a woman has to do is push a button, then the remote activates a valve and the co-2 is released.
