Breast Explant Surgery

Whether you’re interested in a breast implant exchange or capsulectomy and removal, there will be a procedural technique best suited to you and your goals.

Many people are familiar with popular options to enlarge and enhance the breasts such as fat transfer and breast implant surgery. However, in some circumstances, a person may desire implant removal.

Implant rupture, breasts that feel too heavy, and capsular contracture (thick scarring surrounding an implant) are all factors for scheduling removal.

As well, if you desire a different implant size, a change of placement (under or over the chest muscle) or upgrade to a newer generation of breast implants, breast explant and exchange surgery is ideal.

Those who had their breast augmentation decades ago or in a country with different safety standards than the USA may choose to remove and replace their implants with silicone gummy bear implants in Miami so they can feel confident in the industry’s highest health and safety standards.

Why Breast Explant?

About Breast Explant

Breast Explant Surgery

Breast explant surgery takes approximately 1-2 hours. You may choose to combine your explant with an implant exchange or with a mastopexy (breast lift) procedure, which will increase the length of time required and cost.

Incisions necessary to remove breast implants can usually be placed in the crease under the breast. This location provides the best visibility and lowest risk of complication. Incisions typically heal quickly and are well-hidden in the breast fold.

The most common technique for explant is called En Bloc, which means ‘in one piece.’ This approach removes breast implant devices and the surrounding scar capsule (a thin layer of tissue.) If scar thickening or tightening are present, or if there are unusual cell changes, the capsule is removed entirely for analysis and to mitigate future issues.

Breast implant removal in Miami is done under a general anaesthetic. Dr. Craft will discuss your options and any concerns with you, then select the anesthesia type which is safest for your procedure.

Who is a Candidate for Breast Explant in Miami?

The compassionate and experienced team at Body By Craft is happy to listen and understand your body goals. Sometimes the decision to enlarge one’s breasts years earlier will feel too large or uncomfortable in the present. Patients may develop breast tightness or an implant rupture. They may also want to address breast tissue sagging and opt for smaller, lifted breasts.


Questions about breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) have grown in recent years. This rare type of immune-related cancer is not breast cancer. It is specific to breast implant capsules and research so far shows it’s usually associated with textured implants. A small percentage of the population report this issue each year and respond well to treatment through breast explant surgery. Patients are advised to report changes in breast size or appearance to their primary care physician.

What Is Breast Explant Recovery Like?

Each patient’s procedure is personalized, and their healing time may vary. Typically, breast implant removal allows for a much faster and more comfortable recovery than the initial, primary augmentation. Because you aren’t implanting and stretching tissue in the area, only minimal bruising or pressure are reported, if any.

You’ll return home or to your hotel the day of your procedure with medication to reduce discomfort. A few straightforward care instructions such as avoiding infection risks (swimming, baths) and avoidance of heavy lifting will be advised.

We recommend that you plan to take one week off and arrange for help with childcare, pets, and physical work around your home to allow a stress-free healing period.

Dr. Craft will let you know when you can safely return to the gym and your daily activities. In the long term, protecting your scars by covering up or wearing sunblock can help them to fade and become barely visible.
