Selecting a plastic surgeon for your breast explant surgery is a decision that will have an effect on your life for years to come. A successful breast implant removal surgery will give significant benefits to you, as long as a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon performs it.
In the hands of a relatively inexperienced or less qualified surgeon, the possibility of poor results increases. This may lead to additional time, expense, and disappointment for the patient.
Patients looking for breast explantation surgery should carefully identify a skilled cosmetic surgeon because working with an inexperienced or a lesser qualified surgeon could result in surgical complications, unwanted health and cosmetic problems and added expense related to revision surgeries.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides breast implant removal to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.
The patient should ideally make a list of all the questions that they may have in mind before looking for a suitable surgeon for their breast implant removal surgery. It is essential for the patient to identify a plastic surgeon with the precise credentials and experience, likely an American Board of Plastic Surgery certified surgeon.
Stemming from this, the patient should also try to find a surgeon whose fees are within their budget. She should be comfortable with the personality of the surgeon and bedside manner. Does the patient want a surgeon with a friendly attitude, or someone with a more business-like approach to the plastic surgery process?
Will the cosmetic surgeon give her guidance on the most suitable techniques for her explant surgery or will they have a one-size-fits-all approach? To ensure that the patient choses the appropriate plastic surgeon, it is imperative to find answers to all these questions before the consultation.
What if the En bloc Removal Process is not Possible?
Make sure the cosmetic surgeon knows beforehand that if en bloc removal cannot be performed, you want your surgeon to take out as much of the scar tissue capsule as possible. Experienced en bloc surgeons will know how to remove your breast implants and scar capsule material with caution.
Unfortunately, not many surgeons have the experience needed for en bloc removal procedures. In case, you are unable to find a plastic surgeon who can efficiently carry out the en bloc removal, you should choose a surgeon who can carry out a total capsulectomy.
If you will be paying for the breast implant removal surgery yourself, remember that the key factor to consider is the skill and capability of the surgeon in carrying out en bloc removal. At times, women have traveled to expert plastic surgeons in different states, and yet spent lower than what their less experienced, local cosmetic surgeon may have charged.
Your Final Decision
Once you have chosen an ABPS certified surgeon who has adequate experience in explantation, there are many questions you should ask to guarantee your surgeon understands your requirements. You should ask the surgeon how many total capsulectomy or en bloc or surgeries they have undertaken to get an idea of the expertise of the surgeon.
You may also request to speak with one of your surgeon’s patients who has had en bloc explantation to know about her experience. Lastly, you may ask for breast implant removal before and after images of other patients.
