How Is Breast Implant Removal Performed?

Breast implant removal is an outpatient surgical procedure performed in the following steps:

Step 1:

An incision will be made on the breast to remove the damaged or unwanted implant. This incision will be made along the inframammary fold or around the areola.

If possible, your surgeon at Careaga Plastic Surgery will use the same incision as your initial breast augmentation to reduce post-operative scarring.

Step 2:

The implant and surrounding scar tissue will be removed from the breast pocket.

  1. An en bloc capsulectomy may be performed to remove the implant and scar tissue in one piece. This may be recommended for ruptured silicone implants because it better ensures that silicone will not escape into the body. This technique requires a larger incision, and it may or may not be the optimal choice for you. Dr. Durand or Dr. Careaga will explain your surgical options during your consultation.

Step 3:

A new implant will be inserted, or the breast pocket will be repaired and tightened.

Step 4:

The incisions are closed.
