What Is Silicone Injection Removal From The Breasts?

Silicone is a lab-created material made from silicon, carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. Once thought to be a non-toxic aesthetic treatment option, silicone injections in the face and body became a very popular low-cost alternative to plastic surgery. However, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has now warned that silicone injections can travel to other parts of the body and cause a variety of serious health concerns. These can include deformity, severe pain, infections, scarring, and even possibly organ failure and cancer. That's why Dr. Timothy Katzen offers silicone injection removal for multiple body areas, including the breasts.

Although it is an involved procedure, Dr. Katzen's skill and experience allow him to use advanced procedures like UVASS (Ultrasound-Guided VASER-Assisted Silicone Suction) and direct excision to effectively remove potentially harmful silicone from the breasts. If you're in the Beverly Hills, CA area and are experiencing problems stemming from silicone injections in the breasts or you simply want it removed, please contact J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills to schedule a private consultation. Let Dr. Katzen help protect your health while improving your look with a personalized silicone injection removal plan.

How Does Silicone Removal From The Breasts Work?

Silicone removal from the breasts starts with a one-on-one private consultation with Dr. Katzen. He will examine you and listen to your concerns. Depending on your needs, he will then work with you to create a customized treatment plan that will use either UVASS or direct excision. Dr. Katzen may also review breast implant or fat transfer options to enhance the appearance of your breasts after surgery.

UVASS, or ultrasound-guided VASER-assisted silicone suction, uses ultrasound imaging to locate the silicone. Then, tumescent fluid (saline, lidocaine, and a vasoconstrictor) is injected into the treatment area to make removal easier, numb the area, and reduce bleeding. When ready, the VASER surgical instrument is used to dissolve the scar tissue and silicone, allowing it to be safely and effectively suctioned out.

Direct excision makes a small incision in the treatment area, allowing Dr. Katzen to cut away the scar tissue, silicone, and any diseased tissue. He will then reassemble the healthy tissue to ensure a pleasing aesthetic outcome.
