Q&A: I HAD MILD SYMMASTIA REPAIR DONE & AM WANTING THEM REMOVED VIA ENBLOC, WITHOUT REPLACEMENT.

"I had mild symmastia repair done & am wanting them removed via enbloc, without replacement. Can they be removed enbloc with a previous symmastia repair? Do you need to leave any capsule in place?"

 

DR. POUSTI: Yes, it is possible to undergo en bloc breast implant removal surgery despite previous symmastia repair. In my experience, “muscle repair” is not necessary or helpful in most cases. Whether or not breast reshaping is necessary will depend on the specific patients concerns/goals.

The good news: many patients are very pleased with the outcome of breast implant removal surgery; I am frequently pleasantly surprised at how well the patient’s breasts “bounce back” after a period of several months.
