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.

What Results Should I Expect?

The recovery time is normally short, around two weeks. Following a breast implant removal surgery, gauze dressings or bandages or drains may be needed. To reduce swelling, you can wear a support bra or a surgical garment. Healing will continue gradually for about two weeks with reduction in swelling. However, for optimal results, you should follow all postoperative restrictions and advice, including advice regarding when you can return to work, lift objects heavier than 20 lbs., etc.
