Breast Implant Removal/Explant

What is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast Implant Removal or Explant as is sometime referred to is a surgical procedure for patients who are experiencing post-surgical complications with their breast implants such as a rupture, capsular contracture (when breast implants become misshapen or firm) or for those patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their current breast implants.

The reasons for Removal of Breast Implants and Revision Breast Surgery can vary. You may be concerned about the impact your Breast Implants will have on your ability to breastfeed, or in more serious cases, a problem may have developed with your breast implants, such as your breast implant ‘bottoming out’, or a ruptured/deflated breast implant. You may also be concerned about BII or risks of textured implants and BIA-ALCL, or it may simply be that you no longer feel your breast implants fit your physique or lifestyle.

What are the Benefits of a Breast Implant Removal Procedure?
