Explant Surgery with Dr. Hovsepian

Sometimes referred to as explant surgery, breast implant removal is one of the most effective ways to address a number of issues that can arise after an augmentation. Breast implant complications can sometimes be cosmetic in nature, while in other instances they can become genuine medical concerns.

Dr. Raffi Hovsepian will help you explore your options and learn more about how we can correct your breast implant issues. Reach out and set up your consultation at our Beverly Hills location today.

Am I a Good Candidate for Implant Removal?

Since every patient is different, your consultation with Dr. Hovsepian will go a long way towards deciding whether or not this is the right procedure for you. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian is proud to offer a wide range of procedural options, so you’ll work together to figure out the best way to truly address your issues.

You’re an excellent candidate for breast implant removal if you have decided that you would simply prefer a cosmetic change, or if you’re dealing with issues like:

  • Rupturing
  • Sagging
  • Changes in size
  • Positional changing
  • Wrinkling
  • Deformity

Capsular Contracture

In some cases, the body can form a “capsule” of hardened tissue around the breast implant. This is known as capsular contracture and is essentially an overreaction of the body’s natural response to the placement of a breast implant.

This issue can sometimes be cosmetic in nature, while in other instances it can develop into a painful problem. Implant removal is an effective solution to capsular contracture, and Dr. Hovsepian will help you explore your options during your consultation.

More About the Implant Removal Procedure

In many cases, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian is able to utilize the scars that were made as part of your initial breast augmentation procedure, enabling him to avoid the creation of new scars. The removal process is a relatively simple one and enables you to return home the very same day, though you will need someone to drive you.

During your consultation, Dr. Hovsepian will talk you through everything that you can expect after your procedure, including details about your recovery period, and everything you need to know about your aftercare instructions. Since every procedure is different, these details are often quite unique from patient to patient.
