There is increasing demand for removal of silicone-gel and saline implants. We report our experience with reconstruction using autologous tissue after explantation. We used the dual-pedicle dermoparenchymal mastopexy, previously reported, and the deepithelialized transverse rectus abdominis muscle pedicle, both of which have produced satisfactory results. There have been no significant complications, and patients have expressed satisfaction with the lasting results of both techniques.
