Incision for removal of implants
Where to place incision for explantation
Great question. I feel it is best to enter at the same incision point. This will yield better visual results of the scar. I would highly recommend to incorporate a scar therapy treatment post operatively. Consult with your surgeon to discuss what scar therapy treatment option he may have for you. Best of luck.
Have the surgeon remove the implants through the scar you already have and also revise the scar at the same time to give you a thinner scar. Without the weight of the implant stretching the skin you should have a better scar result.
