Breast Implant Removal Providence
Who is a candidate? If you desire to have a previously placed breast prostheses removed for symptomatic or medical-legal reasons.
Intended results: Removal of implants. Possible removal of capsules (scar tissue) and residual silicone.
Recuperation and healing: If only implants are removed, pain will be minimal. If implants and capsules (scar tissue) are removed, the discomfort will be similar to the discomfort experienced after the initial augmentation procedure. Postoperative discomfort should be controlled with oral medication.
Other options: Additional procedures that will enhance the result are a Breast Lift (Mastopexy) or Secondary Augmentation Mammoplasty.
Insurance guidelines: If your implants are being removed because of symptoms, implant rupture, or deformity, insurance coverage may be available. Our staff will assist you in making pre-authorization inquiries.
Note: The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
