Thank you for sharing your question. Pricing will depend on the exact work required to remove your implants. Some can be taken out in an office setting at minimal cost, others require surgical removal. Additionally evaluation of the surrounding capsule for possible removal, and the need for a lift to remove excess skin needs to be evaluated. Seek out a surgeon for a consultation to get the best cost estimate

Breast implant removal can be done for less than $1000 (in office, under local, no capsule removal) and can easily exceed several thousand if you are wanting your capsule removed. as well. If you're thinking you MUST have your entire capsule removed (en bloc), make sure you find a surgeon who can prove to you that it was done 100% as I find it impossible to be 100% removed when capsules are under the muscle. When over the muscle, 100% removal can be provided. You do not have to travel across the country to have an en bloc capsulectomy as many advertise themselves to be 'experts' in that area and capsule removal does not require any special expertise.
