Breast explant or implant removal is an option for patients who are having problems with their breast implants or anyone who now prefers to be implant-free. The procedure removes the implant, usually along with part or all of the surrounding scar capsule.
It is possible for implants to become infected, rupture, or change position over time, all of which will necessitate the removal of the initial implant.
Breast explant is a method to remove breasts implant to ease their discomfort. For breast reconstruction patients who are removing their implants and desire to have an alternative, natural reconstruction, the implant is removed and the remaining space in the breast pocket is easily filled with the autologous tissue during the same procedure in the vast majority of cases.
