Breast Implant Removal Procedure
Performed in a state-licensed nationally accredited ASC.
Typically performed in an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) alongside an anesthesiologist, breast implant removal begins with an assessment of the internal structures of the breast.
Our specialists then carefully removes each implant and performs any additional work inside the breast. For example, if implants have ruptured, our breast and body specialists will clean the area. If the area has developed capsular calcifications, our breast and body specialists will perform a capsulectomy to restore the feeling of a softer, more natural breast. If scar tissue has developed in the breast pocket created for implantation, our breast and body specialists may use reconstruction techniques to ensure the best results.
Once our surgeons have completed the necessary changes to each breast, they will make minor adjustments to ensure breasts are aesthetically pleasing. Some patients combine a breast implant removal with a breast lift to address sagging and shape concerns.
