Explant Secrets Blog With Cheyenne Burnett/How To Find An Explant Surgeon You Can Trust

The removal of your breast implants and capsule tissue around them is arguably the most crucial step to your recovery from breast implant illness. If done right, you could see many of your BII symptoms go away immediately after surgery like I did. But if done wrong, your symptoms are likely to continue well after your implants are removed. This is because the tissue surrounding your implant contains toxins and poisons from the implants themselves that will continue to trigger your immune system resulting in the BII symptoms you are experiencing and can also lead to a number of breast implant associated cancers. 

For this reason, it is critically important that you choose a surgeon who is skilled enough to guarantee a full capsulectomy and/or en-bloc to ensure no toxic scar tissue is left behind.

Unfortunately, all surgeons are NOT created equal and they do not all have the ability to explant the right way safely. Just because a surgeon can put implants in, does NOT mean they can take them out in a way that will actually help you heal and in my experience, if they can’t do it safely they don’t say “I can’t do it safely.”  Instead, they say things like “It isn’t safe to do.”  Which are two very different things!

PLEASE don’t let a surgeon scare you into letting them operate if they are not skilled enough to do the surgery the way you need and deserve it to be done.

I know from personal experience that when you decide you are ready to explant you want to get it done as quickly as possible but finding the right person to trust with the job shouldn't be something you rush.

I personally looked into 16 different surgeons and met with 4 before I decided on my surgeon so don't be afraid to take your time to find the right one since it will make all the difference when it comes to your recovery.

Now I also don't want you to have to look into 16 different surgeons if you don't have to which is exactly why I have compiled a master list of surgeons in almost 40 counties who are known to offer en-bloc or full capsulectomy and believe in breast implant illness.

The plastic surgeons included in this list are located in 40+ countries (organized by tabs that the bottom of this sheet) and have been recommended to me by the over 150,000 women in various different Facebook groups dedicated to Breast Implant Illness recovery and by other Breast Implant Illness Advocates like Nicole, Amanda, Christina, and more. Each surgeon listed is known to not only be able to remove your breast implants using the En Bloc / Total Capsulectomy method but also believes in BII and can offer specialized care but ALWAY VERIFY. Do your own careful due diligence on these explant surgeons before agreeing to let them operate.

This list is continually updated as information comes in but certainly doesn't include every surgeon capable of doing this procedure and should NOT replace your own due diligence and research.

Regardless of if you meet with one of the surgeons on the Explant Surgeon Master List or not, you should come to the consultation prepared to take notes and ask A LOT of questions. To make this process easier, included with the Master List you downloaded above you will also find a list of more than 16 questions I highly recommend you ask any surgeon you are considering for explant. 

Unfortunately, the number of us who experience gas lighting and degrading comments from surgeons when discussing explant without an interest in getting new implants is a lot... 

So if you speak with a surgeon who tells you "Your symptoms are in your head", "Breast Implant Illness isn't real", or "You'll regret not putting new implants in" respectfully tell them to FUCK OFF. DO NOT give someone like that your money, and more importantly don't trust them to help you. It's not your job to convince these doctors you're sick, but it is your job to find someone who can actually help you and if they are willing to speak to you like that, your health is not their priority and they DO NOT DESERVE YOUR BUSINESS!
