Once the BioZorb marker is sutured into place, the unique spiral shape will provide your breast with a temporary scaffolding as it naturally heals. So, as you’re healing, the BioZorb marker will be working to help potentially ensure consistency in the shape of your breasts. The goal is for the breasts to looks as close as possible to how they did prior to surgery.
After an extended period of time, depending on the patient, the marker will naturally absorb by a process called hydrolysis.
But BioZorb markers don’t stop there.
Even with the spiral absorbed, the six-titanium clips will remain, forever marking your surgery site and acting like a GPS, ensuring that your doctors have accurate and reliable data for any future procedures or check-ups.
Overall, the BioZorb marker may help with cosmetic outcomes as well as marking for future medical procedures, which might help to reduce your risk of recurrence.1
