I had my breast’s done 2006. Since then I have been trying desperately to have them removed. I have been having continuous pain mainly on my left breast as well as, the feeling of them deflating inside. I am not sure how to go about this and what the cost may be but I feel it is dire. I can be reached either cell at 7273893246, email please.

Thank you for sharing your question. Visit a local ASPS plastic surgeon for an in-person examination. Removal of the implants can be done at little additional cost to the patient, but details on your original augmentation need to be known.

Pain can be caused by many different things. . You would have to be seen in person to be properly evaluated. Best of luck

There are many Reasons for pain following breast augmentation especially after a decade. Best advice would be for you to go to a board certified plastic surgeon to have a full evaluation

I am sorry to hear of your concerns. Explant can easily be done in the office under local (unless you have a ruptured gel implant) for nominal costs. In my practice, this would be less than $1000 as no one should be held hostage to a device that we put in. But you must understand that explant may not resolve your symptoms and that this does not remove the capsule. If you're convinced the capsule must be removed, your cost will skyrocket as the OR is needed as well as a lot more time.

Hello Christine. Is possible that your left breast have developed a Capsular Contraction, that will explain the pain. If they where placed in 2006 is time to change them for new permanent ones.

First, of all you need to have a sonomamography to find what is going on in your left breast, and in the other one as well.

You may find my email in my profile in this site as an international member, because without pictures is impossible to recommend you a surgical plan.
