Recommended Surgeon List
Please note: This forum receives no money from any of the surgeons on this list. This list is provided to women so that they can have a proper explant in order to ensure the best possible outcome and chances of a full recovery. We do not receive money by referring any surgeon mentioned here or in other sections of the forum.[size=medium]

We recommend you call and get current pricing information. These prices are just ball park and can change at any time. We also recommend total casulectomy for saline filled silicone implants and en bloc for silicone gel, textured saline or gummy bear. Speak to the doctor ahead of time and make sure that he/she will be performing a total capsulectomy.

SURGEON LIST NOTE:
We assume no reponsibility for this list,
and suggest you ask many questions, research carefully,
talk to other women who have used these surgeons, and
request to see "before and after" photos from the PS. We are not
paid to advertise the following surgeons. If you have
further information, good or bad, about the following
surgeons, feel free to email us and tell about your

MEMBER RECOMMENDED SURGEONS

This section of the surgeon list was created by the members of this forum. They have found surgeons in their area that they were very pleased with. These surgeons have performed their explant.

In the past, this was a separate list but I have decided to add it here so more members will see it. These doctors are added here because one or more members have used them and were please with their results. We recommend that when you 'interview' the doctors on this list, please use our 'List of Questions to ask Your Explanting Surgeon'. You can find that list here.

Please also make sure you ask the member that made the recommendation as many questions as you can think of. Capsule removal, (en bloc for silicone gel and textured saline implants, capsulectomy for smooth saline implants) drains, insurance coverage, cost, scar revision covered in the cost should you need it, etc.
