If you are experiencing issues as a result of your breast augmentation such as an implant rupture or capsular contracture, it may be necessary to undergo breast explant surgery to properly address the issue. Breast explant surgery can involve surgically removing a ruptured implant so that it can be replaced or removing the entire capsule that has formed around the implant. In either case, incisions will need to be made around the breast to allow access to the implant.

A common question many people have when it comes to breast explant surgery is if there will be large visible scars following the procedure. When performing breast explant surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rai will make use of the prior incisions used for the initial breast augmentation.

If the original incision was made along the natural crease below the breasts, Dr. Rai will follow along the same scar in order to provide the best possible cosmetic results. If capsular contracture has occurred and the capsule needs to be removed as well, the incision will need to be made longer.

If the breast implant was inserted through an incision around the nipple, it will be necessary to make an incision along the natural crease beneath the breasts in order to allow for the removal of the implant. While a post-surgical mark will form, it should be well hidden.
