Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Over two million women have breast implants, and the overall satisfaction rate among breast augmentation patients is very high. However, complications can occur. Scientific studies have shown no correlation between implants and breast cancer, autoimmune disorders, or systemic illness; however, due to a number of factors, results of breast augmentation vary and a percentage of women are unsatisfied with their initial outcome.

About Allergan’s voluntary recall of textured breast implants

Many patients have reached out to us with questions or concerns about the recent recall of Allergan BIOCELL textured breast implants. First and foremost, we encourage you not to panic. Read on for 5 things to keep in mind about BIA-ALCL and the breast implant recall.

  1. Unless you are experiencing symptoms, it is not recommended that you have your current breast implants removed or replaced.
  2. Textured breast implants in the Allergan BIOCELL family are the only implants impacted by this recall. Only textured breast implants have been linked to an increased risk of developing BIA-ALCL.
  3. Symptoms of BIA-ALCL are obvious, so you would notice if something was wrong. Symptoms include swelling, redness or rashes, changes in firmness, or lumps around the breast implant.
  4. BIA-ALCL is an incredibly rare condition with an *estimated lifetime risk of only around .0003%.
  5. When treated early, BIA-ALCL is almost always totally curable through the removal of the implant and capsule.

What Is Breast Implant Revision (Explant)?

Some patients decide years, or even decades, after breast augmentation that they no longer want to have breast implants. Whether you are experiencing complications such as capsular contracture, you are concerned about the possibility of complications, or you just feel that your implants no longer suit your lifestyle, Dr. Parker can perform breast implant removal while also ensuring an aesthetically pleasing outcome. This process is technically known as explantation surgery.

What Happens at a Breast Implant Revision Consultation?

During your consultation, Dr. Parker will discuss your options for implant removal and replacement with you, including:

  • Type of implant to be used
  • Implant location, either above or below the pectoralis major muscle
  • Size of the new implants
  • Whether any type of breast lift is necessary

You will also receive the same thorough sizing & shaping session that we offer our first-time breast augmentation patients. This includes the chance to try on sizers (if you are choosing to go larger) and 3D computer imaging to simulate your corrected breast shape and size.

Other doctors and patients frequently refer breast implant revision patients to Dr. Parker as he has extensive experience in breast surgery. In addition, Parker Center is the only provider in our region trained and licensed to use the revolutionary Aspen Ultrasound System for nonsurgical treatment of capsular contracture.

How Is Breast Implant Revision Done?

Breast implant revision procedures are usually performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, monitored by one of our board-certified anesthesiologists. The original incision used to insert the implant is almost always the same one used to remove and replace it. All incisions are closed with dissolving sutures. Surgery times range from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the amount of scar tissue surrounding the implant and whether a breast lift procedure is necessary.

Our surgical procedures, anesthesia, medications, and aftercare are tailored to minimize post-operative discomfort and accelerate recuperation.

“From my first call I was so impressed with Dr. Parker’s office. I had a saline implant that deflated (done by another Dr.) and I called and was taken in the very same day. Just came from my visit after the surgery and I’m so pleased. Will definitely refer Dr. Parker’s office. Their staff is professional and friendly! THANK YOU!!”
