Smaller incision sizes when removing large implants.
IF the implant is ruptured before or during surgery, the LSE is the fastest, most complete way to remove loose silicone.
If a total capsulectomy is not possible because the capsule is too close to the lungs, the LSE can remove the implant allowing the surgeon to remove as much of the capsule as possible.
When performing a total capsulectomy with fragile and easily broken capsules, the LSE will remove the implant and the capsule contents quickly and efficiently. The surgeon will be able to remove and visualize the capsule more completely.
When performing En bloc with total capsulectomy, use of the LSE and "Clean Removal Process" helps ensure any leaked silicone has been removed and the surgical site is as “clean” as possible. Provides confidence that every effort has been made for a complete removal.
Using the LSE reduces the possibility of reintroduction of silicone into the Breast pocket by keeping the surgeon from touching the implant or silicone that has leaked from the implant. The LSE minimizes exposure to harmful biohazards. In this case, less mess = less stress.
The LSE “Clean Removal Process” can reduce time and increase efficacy to surgeons while providing patients a safe, rapid, and less invasive Explant procedure, minimizing the surgical teams exposure to harmful biohazards, simultaneously providing better outcomes to the patient.
