North Shore Cosmetic Surgery offers this specialized surgical technique to safely remove breast implants and the surrounding scar tissue capsule. In many cases this may be done as one unit (En Bloc). You may have loved your newly enhanced figure when you first underwent breast augmentation, but there can be various reasons you may want to remove your implants now. Breast implant removal with capsulectomy removes the microscopic silicone that may have leaked into the capsule.
Breast implant associated illness
Some women notice specific symptoms – known as breast implant associated illness (BIAI) – after breast augmentation surgery. The symptoms may include joint pain, fatigue, dry eyes, brain fog, and other health concerns affecting their ability to fight off infections. The risk of breast implant-related illness is relatively low; however, our top priority is the safety and wellness of our patients.
