Once, the implant is out the "pocket" closes it's self, and it's typically best the doctor to leave the capsule as well. It's usually very thin and will get dissolved and broken down by the body on it's own. READ COMMENT

No drains, most people don't need them. He just pulled out my implants and stiched me back up. READ COMMENT

I should also note that I had "double bubble" too, the implant felt like it was literally sliding down my rib cage. So don't worry that complications will some how effect your results, they won't. It will all "snap" back. READ COMMENT
