Removal of Breast Implants Surgery

In recent years, association between certain types of silicone breast implants and rare form of cancer called ALCL (Anaplastic small cell lymphoma) has been established. In addition, many other long term side effects of Removal of Breast Implants Surgery have been known including capsular contracture, auto-immune conditions and silicone leak as a result of implant disintegration over time. Capsular contracture is particularly common breast implant problem, which distorts the shape of previously performed breast augmentation and can cause pain and obvious asymmetry. Many women who had silicone implants now regret this decision and want to remove them. Mr Kosutic can offer these patients not only silicone implant removal but also removal of most of the thickened scar tissue (capsule) around the implant that causes additional problems to patients. Mr Kosutic can then perform subsequent breast reshaping as well as natural tissue augmentation, if required. This should rectify most issues caused by silicone which is a foreign material.
