What Happens to the Pocket After Breast Implant Removal? If the capsule is not taken out? Can you feel it? What happens to the pocket when breast implants are removed?

Capsulectomy is often needed for complex revision breast surgery. If you are having a simple implant removal procedure, the capsule should be excised and the 'pocket' obliterated, in order to prevent a long-term fluid collection from forming. This procedure is called a capsulectomy. I generally remove the anterior capsule only (in a sub-muscular argumentation) and then place a drain in the space for a few days. You cannot feel the remnants of the capsule when it is handled in this manner. I perform breast implant removal, implant replacement and capsulectomy in my Seattle area cosmetic surgery clinic.
