  • Is experiencing medical complications related to the implants and does not want a replacement implant placed
  • Is unhappy with the result of her original breast augmentation and wishes to return to her natural breast size.
  • Has textured implants recalled by the FDA and is experiencing symptoms of BIA-ALCL or ASIA syndrome.

What is this about?

Our doctors performs custom breast implant removal (explant) surgery, in which they removes the existing silicone or saline implants from the body. Women may choose to have breast implants removed for lifestyle, cosmetic, or medical reasons. When indicated, he also performs what is called an en bloc capsulectomy to remove the tissue that has grown around the breast implant.

What results could you expect?

Your surgeon may administer either local or general anesthesia, depending upon what was agreed upon at your consultation. In either case, you will experience no pain. If you are given general anesthesia, you will be completely unconscious during the entire procedure. Your surgical team will continuously monitor your vital signs so that you remain safe throughout your procedure. The incisions needed for breast implant removal can be formed in one of three locations: the crease under the breast, around the areola, or vertically placed in the armpit. Your surgeon will create the necessary incisions, draining any accumulated fluid in the area.
The next step of your breast implant removal is the removal of the implants from each breast. Your surgeon may proceed using a variety of methods, such as:

  • Prying out implants from beneath breast tissue
  • Cutting through the shell of the implant if it is sticking to nearby tissues
  • Implant removal using instruments attached to the breast implant, allowing for its slow removal through pulling

Once your surgeon has removed your implants, they will also remove any excess skin or scar tissue around your nipples. They will then cauterize the area. Once any scar tissue has been removed, your surgeon will reconstruct the area, leading to a more natural appearance.

Today I came in for a surgical consultation and everyone was very friendly and helpful, short wait time. The doctor answered all my questions and Linda, his assistant was at all times attentive. In very few places I see this kind of attention which is so important in any business....
