Porcine-derived acellular dermal matrix suturing technique. (A) Artist’s rendering of the porcine-derived acellular dermal matrix sutured to the infra-mammary fold and draped over the implant with the superior edge approximating the inferolateral margin of the pectoralis major. (B) Suture plication of the porcine-derived acellular dermal matrix to help maintain a higher position of the implant on the chest wall. This includes plication of the porcine-derived acellular dermal matrix as needed, not only at the periphery but within the central areas.
