How does breast implant removal work?

Breast implant removal procedures are minimally invasive and are typically performed under light or general anesthesia, on an outpatient basis.

An “en bloc” capsulectomy vs a simple breast implant removal

When any kind of breast implant is introduced, the body creates a natural barrier of scar tissue around it as part of the normal healing process. During a capsulectomy, patients must make a choice between having the scar tissue removed when the implant is removed, or to have just the implant itself removed. 

Removing the scar tissue. An”en bloc” capsulectomy, or resection, removes both the breast implant and the surrounding scar tissue as one unit. The implant actually remains in the capsule (or scar tissue) throughout the entire procedure and has become a very popular choice among breast implant removal patients. 

Leaving the scar tissue. In a simple capsulectomy, the surgeon only removes the implant and leaves the scar tissue. Usually, there are medical reasons which may require the patient to leave the scar tissue, including the relationship of the capsule to other organs in the area. Your surgeon will make sure to provide a recommendation on which one is best for your body.

Other breast revision and reconstruction options

Upon immediate removal of your implants, your breasts may look more relaxed, deflated, and even saggy. However, there are a few revision and reconstructive options to restore the appearance of your breasts following your implant removal. 

A breast lift procedure raises the position of your breasts to achieve a more youthful look and firm shape. During a breast lift, the excess skin is removed and the remaining tissue is reshaped so that your breasts sit in a more desirable position on the chest wall. Your areola will also be moved to a higher position and can be reduced in size if desired.We use advanced surgical techniques to reduce visible scarring, decrease recovery time, and create a more attractive breast contour. 

A fat transfer breast augmentation provides a safe, effective, alternative to implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. It involves transferring your own natural fat from one part of the body to the breasts in order to restore volume and sculpt a more attractive shape. During the procedure, fat is extracted with liposuction – usually from the abdomen, thighs, or flanks – then strategically injected into the breasts to create a beautifully enhanced look. 

Some women choose a combination of both breast lift and fat transfer procedures to achieve their desired look. If you are unsure about how to proceed, you can wait and decide later. Reconstruction does not need to be performed at the same time as your breast implant removal procedure.

Breast implant removal, and other breast revision and reconstruction procedures are complex and should only be performed by board-certified plastic surgeons with extensive experience.
