A lso known as explant surgery, the process of breast implant removal involves the extraction of breast implants from the pocket using surgery. The surgery can either be simple and straightforward or complex, depending on the reasons behind the surgery and the individual characteristics and condition of each patient. Knoxville plastic surgeon, Dr. Hall can remove the existing implants and replace them with new ones or carry out the breast implant removal process without replacement or with other accompanying procedures like a breast lift or fat transfer.
At Trillium Plastic Surgery, Dr. Hall carries out breast implant removal under general anesthesia so that patients remain comfortable during the procedure. Typically, depending on the procedure involved, Dr. Hall evaluates existing incision patterns and creates an incision plan that aims to minimize scarring as much as possible.
The duration of the surgery depends on the complexities involved. Straightforward implant removal can take very little time. In the case of saline implants, it might also be possible to externally deflate and drain the implant without surgery. In some cases, a breast lift would also be carried out along with the implant removal process. In more complicated cases, Dr. Hall might employ an en bloc capsulectomy or total capsulectomy procedure that removes the implant and its surrounding tissue in one single piece.
A t Trillium Plastic Surgery, Dr. Hall has a wealth of experience treating Knoxville breast implant removal patients who choose to remove their implants due to a host of different reasons. Here are a few things you can consider when making your choice:
Old Implants – Breast implants have a lifespan. Even if you have not experienced any complication, there may come a time when the implants would need to be taken out. You can opt for a replacement or go back to a more natural look.
Aesthetic Reasons – With time, you might feel the need to go back to a more natural look without implants. The effects of aging, pregnancies, weight loss, and a host of other physiologic changes can change the overall aesthetic impact of implants. With time, you might feel like getting your implants removed and Dr. Hall can help you get there.
Discomfort and Pain – You might be facing discomfort due to the added weight of breast implants or pain due to the building up of scar tissue (“capsular contracture”) around the implant. In such cases, it is often a quality of life choice to remove breast implants.
Ruptured Implants – Whether using a saline or a silicone implant, a rupture needs to be dealt with quickly. This is to prevent unpleasant symptoms from developing.
Breast Implant Illness – Though modern medicine has found no connection between breast implants and the symptoms associated with Breast Implant Illness, some report finding relief after breast implant removal.
Capsular Contracture – The scar tissue that forms around the implant after the surgery is usually soft and holds the implant in place. However, it can become hard and painful in some cases and even distort the appearance of the breasts. In such cases, it is important to remove the implants and the surrounding scar tissue for relief.
