What is Thermography?

Thermography uses an infrared camera to detect heat patterns on the surface of the skin. These heat patterns can be used to identify areas of inflammation and impaired lymphatic drainage.

Why is Thermography Important for Measuring Inflammation and Lymphatic Drainage?

Inflammation and impaired lymphatic drainage are two common issues women experience with breast implants. Thermography can help to identify and monitor these issues, so that we can provide our patients with the best possible information.

Why Are We the Only Surgery Clinic Offering This to Explant Patients?

We are committed to providing our patients with the most innovative and effective care possible. That is why we are currently the only provider offering thermography imaging to explant patients.

We perform thermography imaging, in-office for all of our explant surgery patients at their pre-op appointment and their 3-month post-op appointment. Thermography is a non-invasive, radiation-free imaging technique that can be used to measure inflammation and lymphatic drainage. Thermography can help us to:
Identify and monitor inflammation and impaired lymphatic drainage
Assess your progress after explant surgery
Develop a personalized treatment plan to help you heal

Few ways how thermography can be used to help you recover from explant surgery.


  • Thermography can be used to identify areas of inflammation in the breast and surrounding tissues. This information can help us to develop a treatment plan to reduce inflammation and promote healing.


  • Thermography can also be used to assess your lymphatic drainage. Lymphatic drainage is important for removing toxins and waste products from the body. If your lymphatic drainage is impaired, it can lead to inflammation and other health problems.


  • Thermography can help us to identify any problems with your lymphatic drainage so that we can take steps to improve it.


  • Thermography can also be used to assess your overall progress after explant surgery. By comparing thermography images taken before and after surgery, we can see how your body is healing and make adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.
