Choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your breast implant removal is a critically important decision. Breast implant removal surgery is often a more complex procedure than the original implantation.
If you have had a less than satisfactory experience with your primary breast augmentation, it makes even more sense to be judicious about who you choose for your implant removal. Your surgeon should be able to eliminate any silicone leakage or other problems that may arise during the procedure.
You should begin by finding a surgeon who recognizes that breast implants can possibly lead to medical problems, because that surgeon is likely to be more cautious when taking out your implants.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast implant removal to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.
En Bloc Technique to Remove Breast Implants
Your explant surgeon should ideally have experience in en bloc breast implant removal procedure. En bloc removal refers to the surgery where the surgeon takes out the scar tissue (or capsule) and breast implant simultaneously, with the implant still inside the unbroken scar tissue capsule. This is vital if your breast implants are filled with silicone gel, are damaged, or are very old.
En bloc capsulectomy lets the silicone and other harmful chemicals stay inside the unbroken scar tissue capsule while it is being removed. The technique is designed to prevent silicone, bacteria and other chemicals from seeping into the woman’s body during the removal process.
En bloc capsulectomy may involve a slightly bigger incision (which can mean a relatively bigger scar), but it is worth it because the procedure checks silicone leakage that could lead to several health problems.
Bear in mind that en bloc procedure may not be undertaken in all cases, and your surgeon may not know if an en bloc removal can be performed until you are in surgery. For instance, if your scar tissue capsule is weak or attached closely to the wall of the chest, en bloc removal may not be recommended.
