The demand for reconstructive surgery after therapeutic and prophylactic mastectomy is increasing. The hammock technique for breast reconstruction was introduced in 2001 and provides support for the implant using either biologically derived or synthetic mesh. The material is formed as a hammock in the lower pole of the reconstructed breast, and due to its supportive capabilities it has been found to shorten the time needed for reconstruction, decrease the risk of capsular contracture and leave a superior aesthetic result. Correct patient selection seems crucial for optimizing the aesthetic outcome and minimizing complications.
