Breast explant surgery focuses on removing breast implants that the patient no longer wishes to have or that may have been affected by issues like an implant rupture or capsular contracture. While this primarily affects the appearance of the breasts, the change in the size and the shape of the breasts also impacts the overall appearance of the patient’s body and can cause the patient’s figure to appear disproportional.

In some cases, breast explant surgery may be performed in combination with other cosmetic body procedures that can work together to give the body a more attractive shape following breast explant surgery.

Combining Cosmetic Body Procedures with Breast Explant Surgery

The immediate reduction in the size of the breasts and the change in shape following breast explant surgery will alter the balance of the proportions of the body. One of the areas commonly affected by this change is the abdominal area. In some cases, combing breast explant surgery with a tummy tuck or liposuction around the abdomen can help to refine the shape of the stomach and help balance the proportions of the body.

In many cases, patients may also see their breast explant surgery as an opportunity to have other cosmetic procedures they want to be done because of convenience and so they can reduce the number of recoveries they need to go through compared to having each procedure performed individually. This includes procedures like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) labiaplasty, and liposuction around other areas of the body like the legs, back, or arms.
