Removal of Breast Implant for Capsular Contracture in Plano

Removal of breast implant

Breast augmentation may be elected to increase bust size or even out asymmetrical breasts. Following surgery, women often find that their clothes fit more naturally and they get a confidence boost. Dr. Patrick Obasi of Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano, TX understands that women want to feel good about the way they look. He knows instances may arise that require removal of breast implants.

Patients may choose or need to have breast implants removed for various reasons. Sometimes it is a personal choice in no longer wanting implants or desiring a different size. Other times it may be medically necessary due to capsular contracture.

WHAT IS CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE?

A breast implant is a foreign object. Each body responds differently to having a foreign object present. After the implant is placed, scar tissue forms a capsule around it. In some instances, this capsule may tighten or contract. How much or how little tightening occurs is unpredictable. It varies from patient to patient, and may not happen at all. It may occur in one or both breasts. If contracting does happen, it can cause the following problems.

  • Hardening of the breast
  • Distortion or wrinkling of the breast
  • Pain
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Displacement of the breast implant

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Surgical removal of the implant is the usual method of treatment for a capsular contracture. When possible, the surgeon uses the original incision site to remove the implant. Sometimes a larger incision is needed. Once the implant has been removed, the capsule of scar tissue is excised as well. The procedure can be completed with or without the placement of new implants or a breast lift.

If you are experiencing pain or distortion around your implant, contact Dr. Obasi for breast implant removal. Schedule your appointment by calling 214 - 617-1672.
