#Explant #BreastImplantRemoval - Post breast removal wound care
In the short term, conservative wound care should help the incisions heal. That typically includes wet to dry dressings, showers, moist non-stick dressings, etc. Your PS should be able to supervise this portion of your care.
It will take a few weeks for that wound to close, and up to 6-12 months for your scars to mature fully. At that point you can consider additional treatments or procedures, including scar revision and, ironically, the insertion of small breast implants (if you're willing) to hellp the shape.
An in-person assessment with one or more board-certified plastic surgeons at that point should help you go through the various choices.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
