After making a skin incision over the implant, the straight hemostat clamp is used to divide the subcutaneous tissue until the level of the implant, as determined by the preprocedure ultrasonography study. The modified vasectomy clamp grasps around the implant and brings it to the skin surface. A scalpel is used to clear any overlying fibrotic tissue to free the implant for removal.
