What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal surgery is the removal of breast implants when a patient no longer wants them. This procedure is ideal for women who are unhappy with the result of their breast augmentation, are unhappy with the way their breast implants have settled over time, are concerned about their breast implants due to a leak or rupture, or you may be concerned about breast implant illness. In these cases, breast implant removal surgery is a successful solution. All of our doctors are experts at removing breast implants! The technique used by all of the Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery surgeons is commonly referred to as en bloc capsulectomy.
En Bloc Capsulectomy
Also referred to as a total capsulectomy. To remove breast implants “en bloc” means to remove the implant and the surrounding tissue together as a single unit. When implants are placed, your body goes into protection mode and forms a capsule around the implant. Attempting to remove the implant and capsule together is important to avoid further contamination of the area. This capsule may contain bacteria or silicone pieces from the breast implant that should not be left in the body.
How Much Does Breast Implant Removal Surgery Cost?
Because this procedure can vary depending on the reason for breast implant removal, and if the patient wants to receive new breast implants or a breast lift at the time of the surgery, costs for the procedure widely vary. You will learn more about the cost of your procedure during your consultation. Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery also offers financing options, including CareCredit®. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards as well.
How Is Breast Implant Removal Surgery Performed?
All of the surgeons at Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery are experts at removing breast implants. Your physician will remove your implant using as small and as few incisions as possible to minimize the potential for scarring. If the implant has ruptured or leaked at all, your plastic surgeon will address any of the concerns or underlying issues caused by the implant. It is possible to have your implants replaced at this time, or you may keep your natural breast tissue. If you do choose to keep your natural breasts, your doctor can remove the excess skin and reposition the breast tissue to lift your breasts.
Can I Replace My Breast Implants After Removal?
Yes, you may have your breast implants replaced immediately after removing your old ones. Many women wish to replace their implants with a different size or shape than they previously had. This is something that will be discussed during your consultation.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Implant Removal?
If you have concerns about the condition of your current breast implants, then breast implant removal surgery may be right for you. If you would like to replace your breast implants because you are concerned about their size, shape, position, and appearance, your candidacy for the procedure will be discussed during your consultation with the doctor.
