Any faulty implant
must be eventually removed

Medical grade materials and substances go through a strict process and sufficient trial before their safety in usage is given seals of approval. However, patients sometimes choose to receive plastic surgery with unproven material—either in an attempt to cut costs or after being tricked by someone who is not a medical professional. These questionable materials, once inserted into the body, often cause deformation, infection, swelling, or itchiness. In severe cases, they may cause more serious conditions such as calcification, skin ulcer, or even a tumor.

Therefore, if you have received surgery using a faulty implant, you should have it checked to accurately identify the problem and remove the troublesome material immediately.

Complications from using nonmedical material

Appropriate method must be used, depending on the severity of the issue

To completely remove the faulty implant, it is important to select the appropriate surgical method by thoroughly examining the implant and its surrounding tissues. BANOBAGI, using ultrasound, provides a more precise examination that can accurately determine the boundary between the implant and the normal tissues around it. If the implant is determined disintegrable, it will be liquefied then extracted using Accusculpt and injections. If an incision is unavoidable, the implant will be removed by making the incision in the most inconspicuous place possible.

Either way, the key is to extract the implant while not damaging the normal tissue around it: this requires an accurate diagnosis and precise techniques.

Improvements beyond restoration

Once an implant is inserted into the body, the surrounding tissues change shape, depending on the nature of the implant. The less elasticity the skin has and the larger the implant is, tissues undergo greater change. Furthermore, if any complication has already developed, it will leave its mark in the tissues as well. Therefore, any faulty implant removal must go beyond simply extracting the implant.

BANOBAGI offers a more precise implant removal, restoration against any damage, and even improvements upon the area. Our basic recovery care program treats any residual side effect (e.g., tissue damage, discoloration, etc.), and the stretched-out skin after a removal is addressed with treatments like anti-wrinkling or elasticity supplement.

We can also replace the troublesome implant with safety-approved medical grade products or autologous tissues, giving you the aesthetic satisfaction that you wanted in the beginning.

Faulty nose implant removal: extra tricky, but BANOBAGI does it better still

The nose, because of its structural characteristics, is one of the body parts where a faulty implant leads to severe side effects. Even using bona fide medical products sometimes generate complications, depending on the surgical method, the product shape, or your compatibility with the material. This makes removing faulty nose implant a very difficult procedure: in almost every case, a corrective nose enhancement surgery must accompany the removal.

At BANOBAGI, our medical staff, who have extensive experience and skills, carry out the procedure. We select the optimal method of extraction based on the implant type, area, and depth—which prevents tissue damage—and then replace the faulty implant with one that fits you, reconstructing the nose.

With their extensive knowledge, our nose surgery specialist team makes the replacement by factoring in the nose’s length, nose tip height, and the degree of support the nose bridge provides: this treats any existing complications more stably and creates an attractive nose shape.

In case of non-incision removal, recovery is relatively quick.
As the anesthetics wear off, patients may experience pain, but it will diminish over time.
The pain level during stitch removal or sterilization is that of a mild pinch.
If the faulty implant is removed without replacement, patients should avoid large impact or frequent contact on the area to assist with the shape forming.
