Finding a Qualified Plastic Surgeon in Your Area
Best bet is to find a board certified Plastic Surgeon who is a member of the American Society for Aeshthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or the American Society for Plastic Surgery (ASPS) near you home. I have provided links below to make it easy for you to find a well qualified plastic surgeon near your home that is familiar with implant removal.
Choosing your Surgeon?
Thank you for the question.
Check with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and/or The American Society of Plastic Surgeons for plastic surgeons appropriately trained and certified in your area. This is a good place to start.
Next evaluate the experience level and quality of results by looking at before and after pictures and examining/talking to patients who have had similar procedures performed.
Once you have done enough due diligence research you will feel comfortable with the plastic surgeon you choose.
I hope this helps.
Breast implant removal
Breast implant removal can be done as an outpatient. I explain the various uplift procedures that the patient may want to consider as well as the postives/negatives of removing the capsules. I also caution the patient that total removal of breast implants may have a psycological impact on her and her significant other.

Removal of implants
There is no need to remove the capsules after removal of sub pectoral saline implant. The pocket will contract and seal in time. No drains would be necesary either. It should be a fast procedure and recovery. Luis Vinas MD
