Wanting to have my Implants removed - Massachusetts

I have been reading these messages and they are...

I have been reading these messages and they are all very helpful! I am scheduled to see Dr. Barry Davidson on April 2nd. He was the one who had put them in. I am extremely nervous and worried as to what they are going to look like. I am also nervous to find out what the price is going to be. They wouldn't quote me over the phone. But from reading what everyone had to say, is helpful! I guess I will have to touch base later after my appt.

Thank you, I definitely will keep you posted!

I had to go see Dr. Shektman and there was a 75.00 consultation fee that is thrn deducted from the 2500.00 if you go through with the surgery. There is no way that explant should cost the same even though many surgeons do charge the same. I think it really does depend on what type of anesthesia and if it is done in the hospital or office setting as the hospital will charge a fee that will be included also. Good luck. Keep us posted

Thank you so much for the information, this helps. I sent an email out to your doctor to get a quote. Hopefully they will respond. If my doctor charges too much I will consider Dr Shektman. There is also O'Sullivans surgeons in Wellesley that I emailed, nothing yet. My Dr is Barry Davidson, he is located at Newton Wellesley hospital. I have a feeling he will charge the same as it was when he put them in. Thank you again for your help! ;)

My implants were sub pectorals with contractures. The only option was removal at a surgery center.... The fees were 2000$ for the surgeon, 775$ for anesthesia and I think 1600$ for the surgery center. I was under general because I was told that with the contractures and scar tissue I would not tolerate local Mac. That being said I woke up in so much pain so I'm glad I was out during the surgery. Best of luck arranging your explant. Keep us updated!!!

Well I have met with my Dr and have scheduled to have implants removed on May 8th. Having surgery done at a surgery center, local with sedation. Cost is 2700. I have just enough money saved. Thank God its not 5000! So I am extremely nervous as to what they are gonna look like after...hope not like droopy bananas! Ugh...will touch base after surgery is done.
Good luck with your procedure. I am sure all will be fine. Don't worry too much about how they're going to look. What is of paramount importance is your health and getting them out and giving yourself at least six months for things to settle. You will be just fine and I know you will be so relieved once they are out and its all over. Thinking of you. xxx
