Introduction to Breast Explant Surgery

Breast Explant, or breast implant removal surgery, is a specialized procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO aimed at removing previously inserted breast implants. This surgical intervention is undertaken for various reasons, including dissatisfaction with the appearance or feel of implants, implant-related complications, changes in personal preferences, or medical requirements necessitating the removal of implants.

What is Breast Explant Surgery?

Breast Explant involves the meticulous removal of breast implants, whether silicone gel-filled or saline-filled. The procedure may also encompass the removal of the implant capsule, known as capsulectomy, if deemed necessary to address any associated issues. This procedure is pursued for various reasons, including dissatisfaction with the appearance or feel of implants, implant-related complications such as capsular contracture (scar tissue tightening around the implant), implant rupture, or changes in personal preferences or lifestyle. Some individuals opt for explantation due to health concerns or a desire to return to their natural breast size and shape. The purpose of this surgery is to restore the breasts to their pre-augmentation state or to address complications associated with the implants.

How Does Breast Explant Surgery Work?

The surgical process for Breast Explantation begins with carefully planned incisions made to access the implants. Dr. Samir Hasan then methodically removes the implants, ensuring precise extraction while also addressing any surrounding scar tissue or capsules if required. Cases involving implant rupture or capsular contracture might necessitate additional procedures to address these specific issues during the explantation. Depending on individual goals, additional procedures like a breast lift or fat transfer may be performed during the same surgery to enhance the natural appearance of the breasts. Post-operatively, patients receive guidance for recovery, including wearing a supportive bra and monitoring for any signs of complications as the breasts heal to achieve the desired outcome.
