When you have a harmful breast implant condition, a timely and proper explant (removal) of your implants and the capsule tissue that grows around the breast implant is crucial.
As soon as the explantation of the implants and capsule tissue are thoroughly removed, you will most defiantly feel a reduction or clearing of what is making you uncomfortable. There is a possibility that some symptoms may linger and even return until your body has been able to naturally detox everything out of the system and had time to heal.
There are thousands of women who had major implant problems properly explanted that have recovered their health within one or two years after removal. This can vary from woman to woman and the convalescence can widely range between 1-2 years. Unfortunately, there are some women who never fully recover their total health due to the breast implants and sadly some women who could develop deadly disease due to breast implants.

When is breast implant removal recommended?
There are many reasons that breast implant removal surgery becomes necessary. Breast implants don’t last a lifetime and will need to be replaced at some point even if there are no other problems. Breast implant problems are not uncommon although risk factors have diminished greatly over the past 20 years. Still, over 23,000 women had their implants removed in 2013.
Breast implant removal may be needed to relieve a condition called capsular contracture. This is a condition where the capsule, which naturally forms around the implant, begins to contract thereby squeezing the implant. This can be very painful depending on the severity of the contraction. There are four recognized degrees of this condition. The implant will be need to be removed it the breast has become distorted, hard or painful.
Another common reason for breast revision surgery is dissatisfaction with the appearance of the breasts. The patient may wish to increase or decrease the size of the implant. The implants may have shifted and are now located in an area which is uncomfortable, such as the armpit. Or they may have shifted into a position that is unattractive. Sometimes there is a rippling effect and the implant can be seen. In this case, the surgeon will attempt to use the same incision created during the original process to remove the old implant and to reinsert the new one, or to perform other procedures to ensure the breast looks attractive and natural following the procedure.
A ruptured implant must be removed. Silicone ruptures can be ‘silent’ as the gel is engineered to remain in place. There may be no symptoms at all. These are detected during routine mammograms or when receiving an MRI. It is recommended that women with silicone breast implants have an MRI routinely to detect these types of ruptures. Saline implant ruptures are visible and the breast will be noticeably smaller. Implants can rupture due to car accidents, mammograms or from being nicked by surgical instruments when undergoing a breast biopsy.
During your consultations with Dr. Brenner, he will offer alternatives to implants if reinserting them is not an option. In some cases it is not possible for medical reasons. Some examples of this are in the case of swollen or enlarged lymph nodes, or if there is an infection that does not respond to antibiotics.
