Frequently Asked Questions
Do Implants Have To Be Removed With The En Bloc Technique For BII?
No, not necessarily. Patients experiencing breast implant illness will likely experience a reduction or cessation of symptoms with a total capsulectomy or en bloc breast implant removal. Sometimes in severe cases, Dr. Sessa may recommend an en bloc. Also, if it would ease the patient’s mind and they are okay with the larger incision, they may benefit from an en bloc breast implant removal.
What Symptoms Breast Implant Removal May Be Necessary?
If experiencing a complication with your breast implants that requires removal, there are sometimes signs or symptoms. In other cases, there may be absolutely no symptoms. Beyond wanting them removed for personal reasons, your plastic may recommend that you remove your breast implants if you experience symptoms or situations like:
- Breast pain (unassociated with another cause)
- Hardness, especially if it appears suddenly or with pain
- Tenderness in conjunction with hardness or other symptoms
- Signs of infection such as inflamed skin, redness, or fever (on or near the incisions/breasts)
- Back or neck pain due to too large implants
- Allergic reaction
- Deflation (with saline implants
- Trauma or injury to the breasts
Every situation is different. Therefore, some may require implant removal while others may not. Dr. Sessa can determine this during a consultation.
Can I Have New Implants Placed?
Yes, while it’s not overly common to place breast implants after an en bloc (due to the reasons most en bloc breast removals are performed), it is usually possible to place breast implants during or after surgery. This is referred to as a breast revision.
Will I Need A Breast Lift?
Potentially, the likelihood that you will need a lift following breast implant removal is increased if you have had your breast implants for several years, are above 40, or if a breast lift was originally needed, but not performed. Dr. Sessa can recommend whether a breast lift is necessary to obtain the ideal results.
