Explant Surgeons

Please find a surgeon who is committed and dedicated to the full removal of the capsules (scar tissue). This is done through either an En Bloc or Total Capsulectomy procedure. All implants should be removed in this manner to achieve the best outcome in recovery.

It is recommended that when you interview doctors you use a Questions to Ask Explant Surgeons (List): full capsule removal (En Bloc for smooth and textured silicone breast implants and for saline textured implants; Total Capsulectomy for smooth saline implants), takes pictures of implants and capsules, pathology, CD30 ALCL testing of any seromas and of all capsules for textured implants, and if the implants will be returned to you upon request. Other questions include: drains, insurance coverage, cost, scar revision covered in the cost should you need it, and more. Some surgeons loosely interchange the terms en bloc, total capsulecotmy, and capsulectomy, it is good to be educated on the difference between these procedures before going into the consult. Ask the surgeon to give you a step by step description of the procedure and make sure you are both on the same page with the terms of the explant.

This list of explant surgeons has been created by word of mouth recommendations in the breast implant illness awareness groups and other explant sites. These surgeons were added because one or more women used them, the surgeons did a proper explant, and the women were pleased with their results. The highly recommended ones are more likely to acknowledge breast implant illness as they have seen many cases. Other plastic surgeons will most likely not admit to it. This list can be used as a resource but always do your own due diligence to ensure a proper explant with full capsule removal – ask many questions, research carefully, talk to other women who have used these surgeons, and request to see before and after photos from the plastic surgeon. This website receives no money from any of the surgeons on this list and we are not paid to advertise any surgeons.

We welcome feedback you may have, including adding or removing your surgeon. If en bloc is done please email us a picture at [email protected] so it can be verified and then en bloc can be included by your surgeon’s name.
