Breast implant removal surgery is a safe and routine surgical solution

Some patients undergo explantation surgery because they are at a different point in their life compared to the time of their augmentation. Others decide to have their implants removed because of a build-up of scar tissue around the device. Lastly, some patients remove their breast implants simply because their tastes have changed. Whatever the reason, breast implant removal surgery is a safe and routine surgical solution.

What is Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

Much like breast augmentation surgery, there are different factors to consider when planning an explantation procedure.

This procedure generally requires a scar in the breast crease to remove the implant. If the original surgery was done using a scar around the areola or armpit, this could mean a second, new scar. Breast lift surgery may also be discussed as an option during your breast implant removal consultation.

Often a significant amount of time has passed between breast augmentation and removal procedures, which can result in sagging skin and breasts that appear too low. A simultaneous lift can help reverse these changes and provide beautiful, youthful breasts.

What is Capsular Contracture?

Patients enquiring about breast implant removal will often ask questions about their implant capsules.

Essentially, once any medical device is put into the body, the body recognizes that it is foreign and forms a thin layer of scar tissue around it. This isolates the device from the rest of the body. Capsule formation is a normal process that can happen just as easily to orthopedic surgery hardware as to breast implants.

Capsular contracture, however, is a process where the body creates excessive scar tissue around the breast implant, which results in the implants becoming hard and uncomfortable. If any amount of capsular contracture is present with your implants, your surgeon will remove it simultaneously. This may be done as a “partial” or “total” capsulectomy, and Dr. MacArthur will discuss these options with you before surgery.

The Procedure

While some patients may be able to have their implants removed purely under local anesthetic, a general anesthetic is most often required.

Surgery takes place at a hospital or private surgery center and is done on an outpatient basis. A chest bandage stays in place for one week, and surgical drains may or may not be required depending on the case. All sutures are dissolving.

Depending on the surgical plan, most patients take 1 to 2 weeks off work. Full recovery typically takes approximately one month.
