Breast Implant Removal: Q&AAsk a Question
What Are the Risks of My Second Round of Breast Explant?
I originally had Trilucent implants placed sub muscular in 1996 which were removed and replaced with PIPs in 2000. These now also have to be removed. I am determined to have explant surgery however the surgeon seems to be concerned with build up of fluid in the cavity even though drains will be used and asks that I consider re-impanting. This is not what I want. What are the possible complications of explant only with regards to fluid retention in the the cavity? Many thanks
