The surgical method that will be used to remove your breast implants will be determined during your consultation with Dr. Marosan. Different implant-associated issues call for different methods. The surgical technique that is decided upon will be carried out in an accredited facility where you will be placed under IV sedation and closely monitored by our medical team. The techniques Dr. Marosan uses to remove breast implants include:
Standard Breast Implant Removal (Explant) – Standard implant removal involves the placement of an incision beneath the natural fold of the breast. The implants will be removed through the incision, capsule will be washed out and incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.
En Bloc Implant Removal – Some women develop health issues related to their implants (breast implant illness) and want them removed en-bloc. This means that the implants are removed with the surrounding tissue capsule around the implants. This can be a difficult operation since the breast tissue can be densely adhered to the capsule and women usually have very thin native breast tissue. It is a meticulous surgery and it may require the delay of any associated procedures to minimize the risk of nipple/areola necrosis or loss.
What to Expect
Following your implant removal surgery and a brief observation, you will be released to return home for your recovery. The length of your recovery following the surgery will vary based upon what is involved in your surgery. Dr. Marosan or a member of his medical team will discuss what should be expected while you recover as well as tips to help speed your healing. You must attend follow-up appointments as directed so Dr. Marosan can monitor your healing and results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an ideal candidate for breast implant removal?
Any patient who would like their implants removed is a candidate for this procedure. Perhaps you are experiencing complications or maybe your implants are no longer the size you wish for. Regardless of your reasoning, Dr. Marosan is experienced to help you achieve the final result you wish for.
How do I know which surgical technique is right for me?
Only a skilled surgeon should determine the type of removal that is right for you. The method used will be chosen after examining all options, including whether you will be having new implants placed and whether you are experiencing any implant-related issues. These items will be discussed in detail during your consultation so that you and Dr. Marosan can make the decision together.
Can I combine my breast implant removal with other cosmetic surgeries?
It is not uncommon for Dr. Marosan to combine two or more cosmetic surgeries. However, to minimize the risk of nipple/areola necrosis or nipple loss, Dr Marosan will most likely delay any additional breast associated procedures. If you wish, it may be possible to combine additional body procedures not related to the breast. During your consultation, discuss your aesthetic goals candidly so that a comprehensive treatment plan can be created for you.
