PMID: 36439052.


Demand for breast implant removal is on the rise, with more than 36,000 explants performed in 2020, an increase of 7.5% from previous years. Postoperative (PO) analgesia is an important consideration in this patient group due to scar tissue surrounding the implant and the potential for extensive dissection during capsulectomy.
