WHAT HAPPENS DURING BREAST EXPLANTATION SURGERY
During breast implant removal, Dr Kourosh Tavakoli will make an incision in the inframammary fold to access the breast implant and capsule. If your breast implants were inserted through this incision, the old scar can be re-used and in most cases, will not need to be extended. If the implants were inserted via an areola incision, it may be possible to use the same incision to access the implants and capsule.
During the procedure, the pocket is dissected separating the breast implant and capsule from the surrounding structures and removed. The capsulectomy will either be partial or total, depending on the individual circumstances of the case and this will be discussed with you during your consultation with Australian Plastic Surgeon, Dr Kourosh Tavakoli.
The aesthetic outcome of breast implant removal surgery is often at the forefront of patients’ minds when having their breast implants removed. If the breasts are large and the skin is loose, additional procedures such as breast lifting (mastopexy) may be combined to tighten the remaining skin and re-establish the nipple areola complex to the desired position.
Fat grafting to the breast is a technique used by Dr Kourosh Tavakoli and may be an option for patients undergoing breast implant removal surgery. Fat is extracted from an unwanted area of the body (usually the abdomen or thighs), purified and injected into the upper pole or cleavage of the breast to create shape and fullness, without the addition of size.
