Your Breast Implant Removal Procedure
The type of breast implant removal procedure that is performed will depend on your needs and unique physique, and your personal goals for your breasts. Breast implant removal procedure types include the following:
Breast Explant with Capsulectomy (for Capsular Contracture)
If you are experiencing capsular contracture (the tightening and hardening of the tissue that your body forms around your breast implants), a capsulectomy is performed to remove it.
Your incisions will be made in the same spot as they were in your original implant surgery. Through these incisions, the implant and the capsule are both removed.
Breast Explant with a Breast Lift
If you have sagging breasts, a breast lift can be performed while your breast implants are removed. Excess breast skin will be trimmed away, and the breasts will be lifted to sit higher on your chest. If necessary, your nipples will be repositioned into an upward, attractive tilt.
Breast Explant with Replacement Implants or Fat Transfer Augmentation
During this procedure, once your old implants are removed, new implants that align with your personal aesthetic are inserted to replace them.
A fat transfer can be performed for those who would like to augment their breasts more naturally without implants. Fat will be removed with gentle liposuction from one part of your body where there is excess fat. The harvested fat cells are purified and then injected into your breasts to enhance their shape and volume.
Breast Implant Removal Without Augmentation
This straightforward procedure simply removes your implants without a lift or replacement augmentation.
