What Is the Breast Implant Removal Process?


Ruptured breast implant, double bubble, capsular contracture, and other issues can all be corrected through breast implant removal (breast explant). Some women decide to replace their breast implants while others opt for natural breast tissue without implants. There are a few options when undergoing a breast implant removal procedure, which are discussed during your consultation.

Step 1

Anesthesia is administered so the patient does not feel anything during the procedure. To ensure the safety and comfort of every patient, these details are discussed during the consultation to decide which approach of sedation is best for the situation.

Step 2

Incisions are made either along the areolas (periareolar), within the armpit (transaxillary) or along the bottom of the breast where it meets the chest wall (inframammary). The technique selected will depend on which incision was used for your initial breast augmentation.

Step 3

Implants are removed through the incisions. Sometimes, the surrounding scar tissue around the breast implants hardens and requires removal, which can either be removed all at once while still intact (en bloc capsulectomy) or removed in segments, if the entire capsule is not being excised.

If new breast implants are being placed, then that is the next step in the process. After implanting the new breast implants, the incisions are closed using sutures.
