Removal and replacement of Silicone Breast Implants


Removal of silicone breast implants can be covered by your medical insurance in certain situations. I work with many insurance companies in cases such as removal of ruptured silicone implants, or removal of painful or distorted implants as a result of severe capsular contracture. If your silicone implants are 23 years old, the likilihood that they may be ruptured or leaking is very high. In these situations, insurance companies will pay for for the removal and you would only be responsible for the cost of replacement with new implants should you desire.
