Explant/En Bloc Capsulectomy
With the recent association of breast implant-related lymphoma and textured breast implants, which Dr. Cole has refused to use throughout his career, many patients find themselves opting for implant removal. In addition to explantation, Dr. Cole believes en bloc capsulectomy, or complete removal of the scar tissue around the implant and thorough microscopic examination, is the safest course of action for his patients. Explant with en bloc capsulectomy may be performed with or without a breast lift or mastopexy. A simultaneous breast lift (mastopexy) can also help reshape the remaining breast tissue. Dr. Cole will listen to your concerns and provide professional guidance in the decision-making process to best meet your personal needs.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
Explant with en bloc capsulectomy may be performed with or without a breast lift (mastopexy). However, a breast lift completed at the time of explant can greatly help reshape remaining breast tissue and restore more normal proportions. Dr. Cole will listen to your concerns and provide professional guidance in the decision-making process to best meet your personal needs.
Uncomfortably large breasts can impair your daily life, causing heaviness, back or shoulder pain, irritation beneath the breasts or an undesirable shape that restricts clothing choices. Breast reduction surgery addresses these and many other issues and can result in less strain on the body, improved overall health, and renewed self-confidence. In a personal consultation, Dr. Cole will help you develop personal goals and expectations, and make recommendations. Reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about two hours. Scars will be minimized as much as possible as unwanted breast tissue is safely removed, leaving you with the healthy breast size of your choosing. Dr. Cole believes there can be profound psychological and physical benefits following this procedure.
