Surgeons who perform breast reduction procedures understand that applying uniform levels of pressure to each breast is important to the overall aesthetic outcome of the surgery.
During a procedure, either the surgeon or an assistant will hold the breast tissue in place; however, this restricts mobility and increases the chance of fatigue.
The Mammostat tool is a one-of-a-kind medical device designed to hold the breast tissue in place and apply constant, uniform pressure, allowing the surgeon the freedom to use both hands while working on the treatment area. This proven device reduces the risk of operation fatigue for surgeons and assistants.
ABOUT THE MAMMOSTAT:
- Professor Costagliola developed the Mammostat tool. It is a revolutionary device that has been used with great success in Europe for over 15 years. It is a reusable device that can be easily sterilized by autoclaving or with an ethylene oxide solution.
- Without the Mammostat, the surgeon may have to ask an assistant to apply pressure on the breast tissue throughout the breast reduction procedure. With the Mammostat, constant circumferential pressure is applied, which facilitates de-epidermalization. This frees the surgical assistant to perform other surgical tasks. The tool has helped many surgeons around the world to perform successful procedures.
