Breast Implant Removal
Breast implant removal—also called explantation—involves the permanent removal of implants. When indicated or desired, this can also be done along with a capsulectomy—the removal of the scar tissue that surrounds the implants. The motivation for pursuing explantation can be due to changes in lifestyle and/or aesthetic preferences, the occurrence of implant related issues or for a number of other reasons.
A capsulectomy is a surgery performed to remove part or all of the scar tissue (capsule) that forms around breast implants following their placement. This procedure is indicated for a variety of different reasons with the most common being for the treatment of capsular contracture—an undesirable constriction and hardening of the scar capsule that can cause aesthetic deformities, an overly firm feeling breast and potentially even pain.
