EXPLANT SURGEONS

The names of these explant surgeons from various countries around the world (scroll down the list to see all of the countries) have been recommended to be on this list by the over 90,000 women of the facebook group Breast Implant Illness and Healing By Nicole  who explanted with these surgeons and these explant surgeons are known to remove implants properly which means an En Bloc / Total Capsulectomy explant procedure.  For more information on what a proper En Bloc/Total Capsulectomy explant is please read  Explant.   Please do your own careful research and due diligence on these explant surgeons through consults with them by asking the series of questions below to ensure you will get a proper En Bloc/Total Capsulectomy explant.   Go into your appointments like a Boss and tell the surgeon what you need, En Bloc/Total Capsulectomy explant with photos proving such, implants returned to you if you want and pathology.  Do not be talked into leaving capsules in, accepting a partial capsulectomy or draining saline implants before removing or any other such unsafe procedures for you.  If you are having symptoms from your implants it should be common sense that they should not be drained inside your body and that the entire capsule needs to be removed when you explant.  If the surgeon tells you they cannot remove all the capsule what they are really saying is that they do not have the technical surgical skills and experience to remove the capsule and you must go elsewhere.  Please choose a explant surgeon that is dedicated to removing all capsule tissue as removing the capsule tissue will correlate with your recovery.  Please ensure that your surgery contract states Full or Total Capsulectomy and both you and your surgeon sign off on it well before your surgery date.

Please be advised this website has no relationship whatsoever with any of these explant surgeons and no money, fees or compensation of any kind is paid by or collected from these surgeons in regard to being on this list.  This list of explant surgeons is comprised purely from recommendations by women from the facebook group who explanted with them and the women of the group are the ones that decide to add or subtract a surgeon based on their experiences with them.

We welcome any feedback you may have about these explant surgeons including adding a surgeon or removing a surgeon.

    I have looked over the explant surgeons list and they are all too far away for me. I live like a hour from Syracuse and Albany ny. Does anyone know if any highly recommended or recommend explant surgeons in surrounding areas. Also is there like anyway possible if I do find one if they do consults via video because I just want to get this done and over with and not be back and forth due to not feeling well and being in a car back and forth, back and forth isn’t going to help me.

    Hi…I just used Dr David Shifrin in Chicago. He did a great job. He removed my implants with the scars attached and fixed the muscle. He sent the scars to the pathologist. Total cost was $8000 for everything. I hope this makes me feel better. I heard about him through my friend whose implants he removed. Please add him to your list as he is a great doctor and should be highlighted for those looking.

    Thanks

    What difference is there between Expert Explant Surgeon and those listed that do not say that? And between Highly Recommended and simply Recommended?
    Thank you.

      Hi Marie,
      The surgeons listed as Experts have either been around and explanting women since the 90’s or they are extremely dedicated and have wholly devoted their entire practice to explant and have a high level of skill at explanting producing excellent En Bloc explants most of the time as evidenced through continual photos. The Highly Recommended surgeons are surgeons doing excellent explant and used and recommended by women since the inception of the list which is approx 2013. The Recommended category are surgeons that have been assessed for proper explant and have good explant skills and have been used and recommended by several women of the facebook group.

      I just had my surgery on Tuesday with Dr. Lee. I had 31 year old silicone over the muscle implants, and one had ruptured. I consulted three different doctors and chose Dr. Lee. I felt that he was the best local choice – I really didn’t have the option to travel elsewhere for this -due to his belief in BII, his commitment to remove enbloc , and the fact that he provides a video, photographs, and returns your implants to you. You can also choose pathology for bacteria, fungus, and cancer. I got my first look at the outcome today when I was able to take a shower, and I am very pleased with what I see at this point. I did have breast lifts too, so that has made a big difference, I’m sure. He and his staff have been great. I hope this helps.

    Hello
    I just wanted to let you know Dr Chun out of Newport Beach ca has a waiting list for 1 year , only will do phone consults . Office staff was really short on the phone . Can you please add more Surgeons to the California list . There is a lady in Beverly Hills on the list but her reviews are mostly negative .
    I saw another Dr last week from Newport Beach , but I see now he’s been removed . Waiting for up to a year to have implants removed when they are making me sicker by the day is not a great option .

    Dr Thomas in Chico, CA was on your recommended list of surgeons and after weeks of pouring through postings and doing research I booked with him. Now that my appointment is finally around the corner, I look at the list and he’s no longer on it. Is there a reason why?

      Hi Agnes,
      One of the members of the group that consulted with Dr Card has said that she says its not necessary to remove capsules and is not dedicated to removing all the capsule and so we decided to remove her from the list. Removing capsules correlates with our healing and leaving capsule tissue in stalls and hampers healing.

    There are only 2 surgeons listed in the Seattle area and I would like to add Dr. Marshall Partington in Kirkland, WA to the list. He performed a perfect en bloc capsule removal and did a fantastic job! He understood that I wanted all of the capsule removed and was able to do it perfectly due to his skill and my implants being above the muscle. He told me that he would do the best he could and I have pics to prove that he did an excellent job. If my implants had been below the muscle he said that he would have done the best he could without puncturing a lung, which is a big concern for a lot of women, as I have seen on Nicoles fb page.

    There are only 2 surgeons in the Seattle, WA area and mine did a perfect en bloc, total capsulectomy. He didn’t promise me he could do it perfectly, he said that he would to the best he could, but since mine were above the muscle it was easier for him to get them out in one capsule. He explained that if they had been under the muscle, he would not have taken the chance to cut into my lungs, but I have seen on Nicoles website that this is a common thing and very dangerous. I have photo’s if you need them. He is in Kirkland, WA. Dr. Marshall Partington. Very good surgeon.

    I’m not sure if you’ll see this because it’s been so long but I was wondering if you could share your experience with Dr. Cole. My wife just had an appointment with her and she’s not sure how she feels about it, she was making comments about BII being “fear mongering” and also expressed doubt about being able to perform a full En Bloc explant. Did you end up having a good experience with her?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello, I think my prior comment accidentally got deleted, but I really want to give a review of Dr. D’amore. He had good bed side manner and totally validated all of my BII symptoms. I also like that he always does pathology and that he spent a lot of time with me to answer all my questions during the consult. Unfortunately, upon waking up from anesthesia I was informed my arm was accidentally cut. It is about 3/4″ long and deep enough that it will scar. When I asked Dr. D’Amore what happened at a follow-up appointment he told me it was the blood pressure cuff, after his nursing staff specifically told me I was nicked. I didn’t appreciate the lack of honesty, and it made me feel like I couldn’t trust his word. While the cut may seem minor, what concerned me is that it implies a lack of control with the scalpel during surgery. His staff was amazing and super comforting, but because of the extra scar I wasn’t anticipating and the dishonesty, I can’t recommend him. I just wanted to share this information for anyone considering him as a surgeon. He has since called and apologized and offered a discount on my anesthesia fees for the incident. I wasn’t butchered by any means (and am pretty happy with the results), but I would proceed with caution! Best wishes on your healing journies!

    Dr J J Wendel in Nashville Tennessee does NOT charge $4,000. He charges $8,942.83 for what is listed (en bloc capsulectomy, no lift, no meds, no bra). Please update the list. I drove over 6 hours each way through three states for a $150 consult with him because of this list. It should be updated so others don’t have to waste such time and money to find this out like I did!

      Hi Pomme,
      We do not yet have a recommendation for a surgeon in Bali but please scroll down the list until you get to South East Asia to find the surgeons closest to Bali. There may be a surgeon in Bali that does proper explant but you will have to find him/her. Look for a surgeon that is experienced and skilled at removing breast implants En Bloc and with a Total Capsulectomy.

    Please REMOVE Dr. Rankin from your list! I used him for Explant and Capsulectomy 3 years ago. 3 months after the surgery my BII symptoms started, after Mammogram and Ultrasound this year (3 years later) I have enlarged Axiliary Lymph nodes. My breast surgeon (for Lymph node removal) told me he left part of the capsule in and could be the cause of my suspected cancer. I received no implants, capsules or pathology from Dr, Rankin after my surgery.

    I used David A Shifrin MD in chicago. He was awesome. He removed my old implants and the scars around them and sent the scars for pathology analysis. He also gave me my old implants back and fixed my muscles as the old implants were under them. I paid $7500 which was reasonable. Please put his office up on this website so others can find him and his great and caring staff.

    I am trying to appeal to my insurance company to reimburse me for my breast implant surgery total en bloc capsulation. The plastic surgeon will not provide me with diagnostic and procedure codes to sent with my insurance. My insurance will not accept my claim for consideration with out them. I suffered many illnesses believed to be because of breast implants (i.e. breast pain, breast “farts”, multiple fungal infections, bouts of pneumonia, fatigue, hair loss, insomnia, stomach ulcer and other gastric problems.

    What are the diagnostic codes and procedure codes being used for insurance claims?

Its so hard here and I have checked the websites of the above mentioned French surgeons and none of them seem to mention much about explanting. Dr. Jean-Marie Faivre in Paris even writes silicone is pretty safe and obviously makes money out of implants. I really want to have someone’s real experience of explanting with him or the others before I make a move. Next thing will be looking in the uk.
    Thanks for your reply and hope you are ok. Nathalie

    Doctor D’Amore’s price seems to have gone up for explant. I was told $10,500 today on the phone. That’s a big difference from price on the list. Can you tell me how long ago the price on the list is from?
    Also, the list used to say which doctors do fat transfers and have more doctors. Have some been removed due to bad reviews?
    Thanks

      Hi Lori,
      I will adjust Dr. D’Amore’s price to $10,500 for explant only. We wanted our list to focus on proper explant and not be about fat transfer. We are trying to teach women to accept their natural bodies and not buy into the idea they need to alter themselves surgically to fit in to false concepts of beauty.

        That makes sense, however, I have only one implant and need something to help make clothes fit right etc. I’ve done the form outside and it’s too much for me to deal with too. Much more about functionality so I’m trying to find 2-3 doctors in the Bay Area to interview. Preferably ones that will bill insurance first and not leave it all up to me to do.
        Also, please up date D’amore’s explant cost to 10,250 I looked at my notes notes again and was off the first time. Thank you!

    Hello,
    I would like to know if an En Bloc/Total Capsulectomy explant procedure can be done using the same entry/incisions from having implants done and not have to go through the nipple area.

    Thank you for your time.

      Hi Riki,
      Explant should be done with an under the breast incisions for the most part and yes they do reuse he existing under the breast incision when they explant. Some surgeons may explant via lift incisions.

    Hi ,

    I was considering Dr. Lisa Cassileth from California. But she is not on this explant list. I am now afraid to choose her as a surgeon to explant.
    Is there any particular reason why she didn’t make the list. Does she not explant or do Ebloc properly?? I want to choose a surgeon with the expertise to remove properly and will choose someone else if she does not do them properly. Please advise

    Thank you!

      Hi Mel,
      Dr Cassileth seems to do proper En Bloc / Total Capsulectomy explants. I think the reason why she is not on the list is because she was quoting/charging much more than every other surgeon for explant and so women were not using her.

    Just wondered if anyone knows if a PS usually charges extra to do an en bloc procedure, and remove 2nd set of previous capsules? My capsules were left in 12 years ago when I had implants replaced. Has anyone encountered this situation? If so, please let me know. Thank you!

      Hi Sharyn,
      The surgeon should not charge extra to remove previous capsules, it should be included in your price to explant your current implants and capsules. Get a copy of your operative report to see what your previous surgeon did with your capsules when you exchanged, sometimes they remove them, sometimes they don’t and sometimes they reuse the old capsule by cutting it open and removing the original implant and placing the new one inside. In any event your explant surgeon should remove all capsule when he/she removes your implants.

    I have 10 year old saline implants, and also have been recently diagnosed with an autoimmune arthritis disease. I am now thinking I should get these out. I was just made aware of the health concerns and possible connection between autoimmune diseases and implants. Has anyone used a doctor in the Minneapolis area. I would like someone who does this and is not a butcher. Also has anyone had any luck with not needed another surgery after the removal to look or feel okay.

Then tracks improvement after explant when possible. Very kind and compassionate. She is in network with Anthem BlueCross/Bluesheild.

    I wanted to write about my experience with Dr David Shifrin in Chicago. I had breast implants placed in 2017 and later was treated for disembarkment syndrome. It was horrible to say the least. I ended up seeing every doctor i could find. After 1 years of trying different treatments I developed depression and thought I wouldn’t ever feel better. I then decided to remove my implants in the hopes it would help me feel better. I researched doctors and found this website which has been a huge help. I ended up having Dr Shifrin remove my implants and capsules in an En bloc fashion. He gave me my old implants and took photos of everything during surgery. He sent the capsules to the hospital and the pathologist looked at them and gave me a report back which gave me peace of mind. I had this done in 2018 and although I am still dealing with some of the issues I developed I am way more comfortable without the implants and the capsules and feel like my health is better. His office was soooo nice and supportive and easy to work with. I paid him $7500 in total and he helped me submit the claim to my insurance company for reimbursement. I feel very fortunate I found him and his staff and want others to know about them. Please forward my email address to anyone interested in my experience so I can give back and help others in need. Thank You

    Hello,
    I just want others to know that when I called Dr. Linda Huang’s office in Denver to inquire about explant, I was informed that she no longer does surgeries on breast cancer patients (am 4 years post reconstruction after mastectomy for bilateral breast cancer).

    Her office is referring to a Dr. Joyce Aycock. However, the staff there is telling patients up front that total capsulectomy cannot be guaranteed. I am wondering if this doctor is trying to be more honest than most or if total capsulectomy isn’t a procedure she’s comfortable with or believes is necessary.

    I have an appointment with Dr. Jeffery Swail July 9 and would love to hear from anyone who has explanted with him.

    Thanks!

        Hi, It has been 3+ months since my en bloc, totally capsulectomy with Dr. Sara Mess and at this point I feel enough time has passed that I am very comfortable recommending her. Her pre op level of patience was exemplary as I had many, many questions. My implants had been in for over two decades and my surgery was a bit more complicated than most. She was able to successfully remove all of the tissue that had attached to the chest wall. She took photos of my capsules and had them sent out for pathology. Her follow up care was extensive and her facility and staff both excellent. IMO, the difference in my overall well being post removal is more than I could have hoped for. If I had known that a surgeon as capable as Dr. Mess was nearby, I would have done it sooner. Thank you for making this site available to women. You are doing an amazing amount of good.

    Hi everyone, I have breast implants that are saline since 2005. I learn about BII & what it can cause and learn that other women has the exact same problems as mine. All these years I really thought that I was crazy. I had real bad anxiety to the extreme that I had to get medical attention in order to managed my life & function normal. Then after years pass by, my anxiety had stop. I was feeling super great & I also had thyroid problems but that went away which was surprise to hear from my doctor of my blood work. My blood came out more better then I not my doctor expected. But one thing that I not my doctor just couldn’t figure out of the what was causing my throat to be swollen up? Before the blood work I had gone 3 times to the urgent care because of my throat issue. I went to my same doctor and he try his best to figure out the why? Gave me a list of what vitamins and minerals & what foods to stay away from. The 3rd time my mom told me to try another doctor & he told me whit out finding first of my blood results there in their clinic, oh you have Manos… Then he came back and said Ok you don’t have no infection what so ever so go see your nose ear throat doctor for this. Yeah Manos lol. My regular doctor is one of the best doctors I ever had. So I made a appt for the other doctor for ear nose throat and found that I had silent acid reflux. Prescribe me Nexium 40mg and then went back a month later & no more acid reflux, it was gone but then told me to go a dentist for TMJ. That’s when I decided to look up of the why the swollen throat. It took me a week to call a doctor for a explant for BII. Now I’m waiting for the phone call back & paid $75 for a consult for Dr.Chun in California. Does it take a long time to get a phone call back from this doctor? I know it’s a year just to get operated but what bothers me more and also in pain everyday with a contracted neck? I feel like I don’t know if I can handle a whole year with this stubborn contracted neck. I need someone’s suggestion on this of what can I do because this is freaken hard and I’m a wife and a mother of 3 kids. Thank you

I went to see Dr. Morales in Mexico City but I left feeling unsure whether or not he would give me a total capsulectomy. When I told him the implants were under the muscle he was quick to say that it’s a riskier procedure. And even though he asked me why I believe I have BII, he seemed quite dismissive that my illnesses could be caused by the implants. Just curious of the criteria in which allows a doctor to make the recommended list.

    I’m shocked to find that Dr. Tom Pousti’s name is no longer on this list as an explant surgeon in California. Dr. Pousti performed a capsulectomy on me last November and was able to remove all of the capsule without complication, despite the fact that the prior surgeon who performed my explantation actually left almost all of the capsule in, claiming that the capsule couldn’t be removed. Dr. Pousti is exceptional. Better yet, leading up to the surgery he was cautious and prudent, wanting only what was best for me and not overpromising any result. Nor should he – that’s not the standard of care. He was motivated completely and entirely by my own best interest. Not only does he believe that breast implant illness exists, but he’s skilled and knowledgable at the performance of total and en bloc capsulectomies and anyone living in or willing to travel to the San Diego area should be aware that he is a fantastic (and in my opinion preferred) option for their removal and capsulectomy, without a 6-8 month waitlist (I was able to schedule my surgery 2 weeks out from my consult).

      Hi Andrea,
      I would plan on staying at least seven to ten days to be safe. Flights after a seven to ten days are doable as long as you have someone with you to help you.

    Here is an update for your list about Experts Explanting Breast Implants. Canada. Dr. Nick Carr offers a private plastic surgery practise but does not specialize in implant removal.

      Hi SC,
      Its not unusual for a surgeon to attempt to talk a woman into more implants as that is how they earn a substantial portion of their living but will he a proper En Bloc / Total Capsulectomy explant when requested to do so? That is the question.

    Do any plastic surgeons file Medicare for capsulectomy? I have a capsular contracture but each plastic surgeon I have contacted say they will not file Medicare for that procedure. However, they are listed on the Medicare website as accepting Medicare assignment. I am looking for a surgeon in Memphis, TN

      Hi Ann,
      In general insurance may pay for explant for what they deem are medically accepted reasons and you must approach with those problems/symptoms which are rupture, capsular contracture, pain or infection/necrosis. Get a full copy of your health insurance policy and read if you are covered and approach on the reason listed for coverage to a network provider who will do a proper explant which means En Bloc / Total Capsulectomy.

    Hello,
    I would like to have more information about the two surgeons recommended in Connecticut, Dr. Lee and Dr. Alperovich.
    Does this recommendation mean that they have enough expereince to be succesful at an en bloc / total capsulectomy. Did they follow through with testing; pathology and BIA-ALCL CD30 test? Did they take pictures? Return implants? etc.
    I have 23 year old Mcghan textured implants and am very concerned with contamination.
    Will any ladies that have referred these surgeons please confirm their experiences- that the surgery was done “right”.
    Thank you.

      Hi Deserie,
      Surgeons on the list are recommended by ladies that feel that they got a proper explant with them and we also have a committee of ladies that vette the surgeons via analyzing photos of their explants but as always you must do your own due diligence by consulting, requesting photos of explant and asking our suggested list of questions here: http://healingbreastimplantillness.com/2017/04/27/questions-ask-surgeons-explant-consults/

    Hello,
    do you know any surgeon in Croatia (Europe), or is there anyone who has done an explant there?

    Thank you very much!

      Hi Mia,
      We don’t yet have a surgeon listed from Croatia but that does not mean there is not surgeon there that can do proper En Bloc / Total Capsulectomy explant of breast implants and all capsule tissue. The closest surgeon we have listed to you would likely be Austria. Please see this list, scroll down until you get to the European countries: https://healingbreastimplantillness.com/explant-surgeons/.

    Hi, Has anyone found they get a red rash when they exercise on there chest/ cleavage area ? I have been to the doctors several times , they say its fungal and now they think its psoriasis. But seems to flare up when I get really hot and its not going away. I’m wondering is its connected to Breast implant illness. I’m having blood tests done next week to check my body, they said on the last one my white blood cells were low. I read online that could be my immune system. I have the pip implants there about 13 yrs old. I had no problems before now but last year I started getting rashes . I’m thinking about removing them now.

    I noticed Dr Lisa Sowder is not on the list for Washington. Have women had problems with her surgery, or is it because of her lack of belief in BII? I would love a surgeon who supports the fact that my implants are harming me, but I really need a skilled surgeon because of my other medical problems, and can’t travel far from Seattle. Thanks!

    HI Johanna,

    I am also thinking of getting explantation with total capsulectomy or en bloc with Dr Faivre, who implanted me 3 years ago. I’d like to share your feedback on this surgery and surgeon if you finally did get the surgery since your last post. Thanks a lot. Clo

    Hi Jordan,
    I was curious about his as well. I am in SoCal, but would be willing to go up there . Did you have a consult with him yet?

      Hi Jordan. I live in central CA. I’m wondering why you aren’t considering Dr Jae Chun – Plastic Surgeon, listed here as Very Highly Recommended and in So Cal. Do you have a reason you do not want to go to him? If so, I’d like to know because I am considering him and plan to schedule a consult for January.

      Hi Jordan. I am looking for a good Dr as well and I was thinking of seeing the highly recommended one listed in So Cal eve though it is a 6 hour drive for me. Why are you not considering him, as you live closer to Newport Beach than Chico? I’d appreciate hearing why you are not considering him as I am a bit fearful and want to choose the right doctor. If you know something I should know, please tell me. Thank you very much. FYI: He is the 2nd one listed on the above list and this blog says he is “highly recommended”. Jae Chun in Newport Beach, Ca.
      Thank you.

      Hi Charlene, I’ve been talking with a woman who explanted today in Ireland, but I’m not sure exactly where she’s located. She was on the waiting list with the NHS and it was going to be forever before she could have surgery which was a good thing because it gave her more time to research. She ended up consulting with a surgeon that she had to pay for and he explanted her en bloc today. I will ask her what his name is. Can you do me a favor? Please friend me on my FB page to “remind” me about this. https://www.facebook.com/jrandall53

    Hi there,

    I’ve been trying to get accepted into the Breast Implant Illness and Healing by Nicole FB group for a month now and nothing.
    I’ve filled out the form 3 times.

    I’ve consulted with Dr. Stanwix but I’d prefer to talk to other patients who have gone to him. I asked his staff for patient references and they emailed back and said it would be better for me to join this FB group for references. I thought that was a strange reply but ok.

    Please help and accept me into the group. I’d like to schedule my explant surgery but would like some references first. Thank you, Nicole
