Traditional Calais Lace Can Help Women After Breast Cancer

Traditional Calais Lace Can Help Women After Breast Cancer

 Amazing new technique will help new cell growth after Breast Cancer Surgery.  This has to be a marvellous breakthrough and give hope to so many women who have had a mastectomy.


Innovative technique allows new cells to grow and reconstruct ‘natural’ breast
Traditional lacemakers in Calais could help thousands of women cope after a mastectomy as their craft is being used to help create a new natural reconstructed breast that grows from their own cells.
Leavers lace is being used as a ‘scaffold’ matrix to allow the body to grow the woman’s own fat cells to recreate the breast shape inside a 3D-printed natural fibre mould.

After breast cancer and a mastectomy, women looking for breast reconstruction have previously chosen a silicone prosthesis that has a high risk of rejection and needs changed every few years or ‘lipofilling’, where fatty tissue is transplanted from elsewhere in the body in a series of surgeries.
