Your Breast Implant Removal Experts at CosmetiCare in Orange County

Breast implant removal is exactly what it sounds like: A procedure by which one of our award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeons can remove breast implants and either reverse or improve the outcome of a previous breast augmentation procedure. In some cases, this can become necessary because of complications that may arise with a breast implant, such as rippling, migration, or rupture. In other cases, however, breast implant removal can be a great choice when an individual has simply decided that they are no longer satisfied with the look and feel of their breast implants, and would like to return to a more natural look. Whatever your motivation may be, our carefully selected team of board-certified plastic surgeons offers you the expertise and experience you need to enjoy impressive results that truly boost your quality of life. To learn more, reach out to us at our Newport Beach location and set up your consultation with a helpful member of our team today.

When Should I Consider Breast Implant Removal?

There are a wide variety of factors that can cause breast implant removal—sometimes referred to as explantation—to become necessary. When you visit our Newport Beach office, one of our board-certified professionals will get to know the issues you’re facing and will help you determine whether or not breast implant removal will be necessary for you. Some of the issues that can cause breast implant removal to become necessary include:

  • Capsular contracture
  • Migration
  • Rippling
  • Rupture
  • A change in preference

Our Breast Implant Removal Techniques

Depending on your particular reasons for seeking out breast implant removal, your surgeon will choose from a number of breast implant removal techniques. The surgical plan that is developed for your personal needs will vary according to the issues that you are facing with your existing breast implants, and the specifics of the cosmetic goals you wish to achieve through breast implant removal.


Capsulectomy involves only removing the breast implant, and not the tissue capsule that your body naturally forms around a breast implant once it’s been placed. This is ideal for those who wish to return to their more natural appearance and are simply interested in removing the breast implant without disturbing the tissue capsule that surrounds it.

En Bloc Removal

This refers to a procedure that refers to the removal of both the breast implant and also the scar capsule that your body will naturally form around the breast implant. This is often required when capsular contracture is caused by a hardening of the tissue capsule that surrounds the breast implant, which can sometimes be quite painful to experience.

Your Surgical Experience

Breast implant removal is often performed using the same incisions that were made when your implants were originally placed. This enables us to avoid the presence of additional post-surgical scarring. Your surgery will be performed under general anesthesia, and in many cases, implant removal is a lot quicker and simpler than the process by which implants are placed.

Once the required incisions have been made, your surgeon will carefully remove either the implant or the implant and the surrounding tissue capsule, according to the specifics of your bespoke surgical plan. The area will be cleaned as necessary and your surgeon will then go to work meticulously closing your incisions in a way that will ensure the avoidance of additional scarring.

Adjustments will be made to ensure that your breasts are symmetrical and look as naturalistic as possible while maintaining an attractive, curvy, and feminine appearance.
