What is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal, also known as explantation, is a surgical procedure involving removing breast implants. There are various reasons why individuals may choose to have their implants removed, including:

  • A desire for a natural look and feel: Some patients may opt for implant removal to return to their natural breast size.
  • Concerns about implant-related issues: Individuals who experience complications, such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, implant malposition, or breast implant illness (BII), may consider removal to alleviate symptoms and restore well-being.
  • Lifestyle changes: Changes in personal preferences, body image, or lifestyle may prompt individuals to choose implant removal.
  • Older implants: If you have had breast implants in place for many years, they may need to be removed and replaced.
  • Changes in breast size: You may want either larger or smaller implants.
  • Capsular contracture: It may be necessary to remove breast implants to treat and resolve capsular contracture.
  • Implant rupture: A ruptured implant must be removed and replaced as quickly as possible.
  • Implants out of place: Implants that have created an unnatural look may need to be removed and replaced.

Dr. Troy Callahan: Expertise in breast implant removal

With extensive experience in breast surgery, Dr. Troy Callahan is a leading expert in breast implant removal surgery techniques. He understands each patient's unique needs and concerns and is committed to providing compassionate care and custom-tailored treatment plans.

During your consultation, Dr. Callahan will thoroughly evaluate your situation, listen to your goals and concerns, and guide you through the options. He will discuss the potential benefits, risks, and expected outcomes of breast implant removal in Englewood, ensuring you have a clear understanding and realistic expectations.

The procedure: Tailored solutions for your unique needs

Breast implant removal is a personalized procedure, which can vary based on the condition of the individual:

  • Implant removal: Dr. Callahan will carefully remove your breast implants, preserving the integrity of the surrounding breast tissue.
  • Capsulectomy: In some cases, removing the surrounding scar tissue (capsulectomy) may be necessary. This can help alleviate discomfort, address implant-related issues, and provide a smoother transition if you choose not to replace the implants.
  • Breast lift (mastopexy): If needed or desired, a breast lift procedure may be performed simultaneously to address any changes in breast shape, sagging, or asymmetry that may have occurred after implant removal.
