Purpose

This phase 1 trial studies how well Blossom Smart Expander Technology works in breast reconstruction in participants with breast cancer undergoing mastectomy. Blossom Smart Expander Technology allows for slow and continuous injection of small amounts of saline, from an external pouch and based on precise pressure and volume measurements, into breast expander implants. It may help in achieving the same reconstructive goals as conventional tissue expansion in a shorter period of time and while avoiding frequent injections through the skin, which cause patient discomfort and require many clinic visits.
