Breast Implant Removal
Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Max Lehfeldt, specializes in complex breast implant revision surgery. Dr. Lehfeldt’s unique skills are called upon to completely reshape and restore implants and breast tissues that have become distorted with scar tissue and time.
Dr. Lehfeldt’s rich experience with complex breast reconstruction/revision surgery has helped him develop a specialized set of surgical approaches to help patients with complicated implant issues:
- Malposition (breast implants too low/bottoming out, too lateral/on the side, or too far apart)
- Thick recurrent breast implant scar tissue/firmness (encapsulation)
- Breast distortion
- Breast wrinkles/ripples
- Breast asymmetry (breasts not looking similar)
Dr. Lehfeldt has performed thousands of breast implant cases – both primary and complex revision/reconstruction. This vast experience has uniquely prepared Dr. Lehfeldt to help correct YOUR specific problem. He is focused on his patients’ goals and desires. Dr. Lehfeldt not only has the expertise to help you, but he also listens to your concerns, frustrations, and disappointments that you may be experiencing regarding your breasts.
There are many specialized techniques that are often required to achieve the ideal result for implant removal and exchange. Dr. Lehfeldt may need to remove all the scar tissue around your old implants (capsulectomy), place new implants (often below the muscle), implant-site exchange, and reshape the breast and support new implants using soft tissue support devices (SERI Scaffold). Sometimes reshaping the breast skin and raising the nipple position will also be required.
During your consultation, Dr. Lehfeldt will provide a detailed analysis using full 3D imaging of your breasts with our Canfield VECTRA® XT Imaging System. A comprehensive analysis using state-of-the-art, digital imaging is the foundation upon which a great outcome can be achieved – especially when complex anatomy and issues are at hand. Dr. Lehfeldt will incorporate your specific goals and concerns into a concise and logical treatment plan. Nothing is as helpful as being able to visualize all the issues in real-time and in digital detail during your consultation.
