Breast implant removal has become very common in recent years. Also called breast explant, this procedure involves taking out saline or silicone implants as well as scar tissue or silicone gel that may have leaked due to a rupture. For the right candidates, it offers benefits such as:
- Relief of pain and other symptoms: The majority of women who have breast implants do not experience serious complications. However, implants are not completely without risk. You might remove them to correct tight scar tissue (capsular contracture), a rupture, or health concerns. Talk to our surgeons to learn if breast explant makes sense for you.
- Easier and more accurate mammograms: Implants can block the X-rays used in mammograms. Sometimes, it is possible to move the implant out of the way and take extra pictures of the breast tissue. Other times, you may need an ultrasound or MRI. Removing your implants means that your breast cancer screenings will be simpler.
- Increased satisfaction with breast appearance: You probably loved your implants when you got them. But now, your cosmetic preferences have changed. Breast implant removal can get your breasts closer to their original appearance. Combining the procedure with a breast lift to combat any potential sagging may offer the best results.
- Peace of mind: You may decide to remove textured implants if you are concerned about BIA-ALCL. The risk is low, and the FDA does not recommend removing your breast implants if you are not experiencing symptoms. However, the choice is yours to make. You also have the option of getting breast explant surgery to avoid an implant rupture. Finally, some women remove their implants to eliminate the need for more procedures.
