Breast implants may need to be removed for a number of reasons. Whether there has been a change of personal aesthetic, a desire for more or less augmentation, issues with the implants, or another reason, breast implant removal is an important procedure for many women.
Breast Explant With Replacement Implants Or Fat Transfer
Dr. Kahng will remove the original implants. Your new implants will then be inserted. These new implants may be a different type, size, shape, or consistency. If you have chosen to go without implants, but you would like to enhance the size and volume of your breasts, Dr. Khan will perform a fat transfer. He will remove fat tissue from a predetermined part of your body that has excess fat. This fat will be purified and then injected into your breasts.
Breast Explant With Capsulectomy (For Capsular Contracture)
Breast explant in Orange County is done to remove the infected capsule (the growth of tissue that forms around any foreign object in the body, such as your breast implants.) Dr. Kahng will make incisions in the same places that were made in your original implant surgery. He may simply remove the capsule tissue, or he may remove the capsule tissue and the implant as well.
