About Breast Implant Removal

What is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal surgery is the removal of breast implants when a patient no longer wants them. This procedure is ideal for women who are unhappy with the result of their breast augmentation, are unhappy with the way their breast implants have settled over time, are concerned about their breast implants due to a leak or rupture, or are concerned about breast implant illness.

In these cases, breast implant removal surgery is a successful solution. Dr. White is an expert at removing breast implants! The technique used by Dr. White is commonly referred to as en bloc capsulectomy.

En Bloc Capsulectomy

An en bloc capsulectomy and also be referred to as a total capsulectomy. “En bloc” means to remove the implant and the surrounding tissue together as a single unit. When implants are placed, your body goes into protection mode and forms a capsule around the implant.

Attempting to remove the implant and capsule together is important to avoid further contamination of the area. This capsule may contain bacteria or silicone pieces from the breast implant that should not be left in the body.

How Much Does Breast Implant Removal Surgery Cost?

Because this procedure can vary depending on the reason for breast implant removal, and if the patient wants to receive new breast implants or a breast lift at the time of the surgery, costs for the procedure widely vary. You will learn more about the cost of your procedure during your consultation.

How Is Breast Implant Removal Surgery Performed?
