The Interlocking Gore-Tex periareolar suture technique is used for periareolar closure to avoid postoperative widening of the nipple-areola complex.
The GORE-TEX® Suture is a microporous, monofilament suture of flexible biomaterial for excellent handling, reduced hole-leakage, and minimal irritation in soft tissue approximation.
This permanent suture helps in stabilizing the nipple-areolar complex over time to prevent widening or stretch deformity.
