What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal, also referred to as explant surgery, is a surgical procedure for removing breast implants and extracting silicone material in case the implant leaked inside the breast capsule. Usually, breast implant removal procedure is performed because of hardening, causing pain or irritation from the scar after implant placement. Therefore, the breast implant needs to be replaced or removed every 10-20 years and checked regularly with MRI to avoid complications, such as leakage and/or rupture.
