TiLOOP® Pocket

The titanised mesh TiLOOP® Bra Pocket is a ready-to-use mesh pocket. With the TiLOOP® Bra Pocket a breast implant can be fixed after skin-sparing or nipple-sparing mastectomy or for augmentation.

Product Description

Benefits –

Complete Portfolio – The TiLOOP® Bra product family covers all indications for breast surgery with tissue reinforcing material.

  • TiLOOP® Bra Pocket – Pre-pectoral reconstruction/augmentation
  • TiLOOP® Bra – Sub-pectoral reconstruction/augmentation
  • TiLOOP® Bra MPX – Mastopexy / reduction surgery / symmetrical alignment

Optimal Capsule Quality – Compared to simple polypropylene, the hydrophilic and titanised surface carries a reduced risk of inflammation and thus a reduced tendency towards the formation of connective tissue-like scars and shrinkage: combined with minimal weight and ides the ideal conditions for a permanent, stable result as well as both desirable tissue ingrowth and a vascularied, flexible, and therefore optimum capsule quality.

Muscle-Sparing, Pre-Pectoral – The pre-pectoral placement of the implant eliminates the need to detach the muscle from the chest wall and therefore less postoperative pain. The result is a shorter recovery time and the preservation of muscle function. Your patients are less affected in their daily lives.

Excellent Aesthetic Results – The pre-pectoral placement enables the breast implant to assume the physiological position of the subcutaneous breast tissue, resulting in excellent aesthetics and a natural-looking ptosis.

Excellent Quality of Life – The pre-pectoral reconstruction and the associated benefits improve the patients’ quality of life.

Shorter Surgery – TiLOOP® Bra Pocket is a ready-to-use implant. No lengthy fitting procedure, e.g., via intraoperative sutures or hydration, is required. The pre-pectoral reconstruction takes less time than the sub-pectoral reconstruction, since there is no need to prepare the pectoralis major. The patient is therefore anaesthetised for a shorter period.

Protected Implant – TiLOOP® Bra Pocket is an implant pocket, which fixes the freely selectable breast implant on the muscle and thus prevents dislocation or twisting. Studies have provided evidence of a low capsule contracture rate, while maintaining an excellent capsule quality.

Stretch-Optimised Implant – The stretch properties of TiLOOP® Bra Pocket have been developed to meet the physiological demands of natural shoulder movements and ptosis.

Implantation –

Recommended Implantation Procedure

TiLOOP® Bra Pocket is either fixed on the fascia of the pectoralis major, or directly on the pectoralis major. The implant front, facing the skin, should be completely covered with mesh material. TiLOOP® Bra Pocket undergoes pre-pectoral fixation with cranial, medial and lateral attachment, in order to prevent dislocation of the mesh and implant.


Knowledge –

One of the determining factors for successful breast surgery in the long term, is the correct decision for or against the use of tissue reinforcing material (synthetic mesh or ADM).

TiLOOP® Bra mesh implants are made of Type 1a polypropylene mesh (macroporous, light & monofilament) with a titanised, hydrophilic surface. Compared to simple polypropylene, this offers a number of advantages, which are already known in the use of titanised mesh implants for hernia surgery, such as:

  • better cell growth
  • lower risk of inflammation
  • less scarring
  • less shrinkage of the mesh

Application Range –

TiLOOP® Bra Pocket can be used in any breast surgery, where the pre-pectoral use of tissue-supporting, reinforcing and bridging materials is indicated.

  • Reconstructive breast surgery: implant-based reconstruction (also with expander), e.g., after a skin-sparing or nipple-sparing mastectomy.
  • Plastic-aesthetic breast surgery: primary or corrective augmentations
