Choosing The Best Surgeon to Remove Your Breast Implants | El PasoChoosing the right cosmetic surgeon to undertake your breast implant removal procedure is critical because it is often a more complex surgery than the primary breast augmentation. 

If you have previously had an unsatisfactory experience with your original breast implantation, you should be particularly careful about choosing a surgeon who has a proven track record of success with breast procedures. 

The surgeon should be able to reduce any leakage of silicone or handle any other problems that may arise during the breast implant removal. You should begin by seeking a surgeon who recognizes that breast implants can possibly lead to serious health problems because they will be more careful while removing your breast implants.

Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez, provides breast implant removal to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding locations. 

En Bloc Implant Removal Technique

Your breast implant surgeon should ideally have experience in en bloc removal surgery. En bloc removal refers to the procedure when the surgeon takes out the scar tissue (or capsule) and the breast implant together, with the implant still intact inside the scar tissue capsule. This is more important when your implants are filled with silicone gel because silicone may expose you to health issues if it leaks to other areas of the body.

En bloc implant withdrawal technique lets the silicone and other chemicals stay inside the intact scar tissue capsule while it is being taken out. En bloc implant removal procedure usually involves larger incision (which means a slightly bigger scar), but it is worth it because the procedure is designed to check leakage and prevent potential health problems.  

Remember that en bloc breast implant removal may not be undertaken in all cases, and the surgeon may not know if the en bloc technique is possible until you are in surgery. For instance, if the surgeon discovers during the procedure that scar tissue capsule is weak or adheres tightly to the chest wall, en bloc removal may not be possible.

Focus on Individualization

Dr. Gonzalez believes in customizing the breast implant removal surgeries and addresses the distinctive requirements of the patient so as to be able to deliver the best possible results. The anatomical features of each patient are unique. The surgeon should take into account these subtle differences and include the personal cosmetic needs and desires of the patient in their plan for breast explantation surgery. 

The committed Dr. Gonzalez carefully balances the principles of art and science in a style that helps to deliver outcomes that are not only aesthetically attractive, but also sustainable, safe and natural-looking.

Personal Characteristics and Attitude

The cosmetic results and safety of the patient are undoubtedly vital considerations in a surgery such as breast implant removal. But it is also essential for the patient to feel comfortable with the surgeon. The decision to go through an implant removal surgery is a very personal one.

Due to this reason, the patients should try to seek a surgeon who respects their cosmetic goals and privacy. At the time of the pre-op consultation, the surgeon should ask the patient about the outcomes that they desire and the exact surgical procedure that interests them.

If the patient feels that the surgeon is reluctant to customize the surgery to go well with their distinct requirements, they can re-evaluate their choice of cosmetic surgeon. A responsible surgeon will never put pressure on a patient to go through more surgery that they may actually need. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for breast implant removal.
