About

BioAesthetics is a North Carolina-based company that develops biotechnology to manufacture biomaterials for medical purposes, specifically nipple-areolar complex grafts for breast cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomies.Its lab operations take place in Research Triangle Park in North Carolina and the company also has ties in New Orleans and San Francisco.

Product

The company's product is a Nipple Areolar Complex (NAC) Graft, which can be used for breast cancer survivors when they are reconstructing their breasts after receiving mastectomies. The technology allows for the patient's own cells to grow into the graft, allowing for it to become a living structure and part of the patient's body. The company states that within weeks, a patient's blood vessels can form within graft, allowing for the graft to be accepted to the body without antibiotics or steroids, which are often needed with skin grafts and organ transplants. The NAC grafts can be custom matched to each patient and is in a pre-clinical stage of development.
