I hope you find this information useful and if there is anything you would like to see added, please comment below. I will continue to add to this page as I am able to. Thank you!
Recommended Explant Surgeons
These 8 surgeons listed below do explants on a regular basis, believe in Breast Implant Illness, have the most experience with explant surgery, are very skilled, and are committed to en block when possible and complete capsulectomy. They are very reputable among the breast implant illness groups. I personally would only recommend a surgeon from this top 6 list, but I understand that this is not always possible for everyone. You will find additional surgeons listed by state HERE who are also quite reputable. This list was created from countless testimonials from women who have explanted. When choosing an explant surgeon, it is ultimately important to chose someone who you feel comfortable with, who you connect with, and who is committed to performing en block and complete capsulectomy for the best health outcome. I recommend seeking testimonials from women in the various Facebook groups in addition to having consultations with several surgeons until you find the right fit for you. The worst thing you can do is make a rash decision out of panic once you have discovered BII. “Just getting them out” is not ideal nor is it recommended. Please take your time in finding the right surgeon for you.
