I want to remove a body chip. I can move it around a bit and there seems to be a thick layer around it. So now I have 5 questions:
- There is cocooning tissue around it formed that is a bit hard and thick. When the chip moves around under the skin (I can push it around just a little bit) is (a) the cocooning layer moving together with the chip (so not connected to tissue of skin or under skin, just a cocoon very tight around the chip itself, cocoon and chip moving as one?) or (b) is the cocooning tissue bigger then the chip (3 times its size or so) and when I move the chip around the chip is actually moving around within this bigger socket of cocoon tissue area?
- When I take out the chip, is it necessary to take out all the cocooning tissue, or will the body solve it later on when the chip is out?
- Does anyone know a good piercing shop (or health care pro) in Amsterdam who can deal with this matter? So far no luck and Amsterdam should have a place.
- If I am mistaken and the chip is actually a chip covered with anti-migrating coating (which is not what I remember), how would that affect the removal process?
- Does anyone has experience with HF range chips? Can it be, that the body is forming a thicker layer of fat/cocoon tissue around the chip as a response to the HF (compared to LF)? Is the thickness of the cocoon tissue layer caused by the stronger frequency?
I am just wondering should I cut out the cocooning area as a whole or should I open up the cocooning area and push the chip out. I am 85% sure it has no anti-migration coating (it should not have it!) but somehow it feels like it might have a coating as the cocoon tissue is pretty tough and big.
Any thoughts are welcome, thanks in advance …
it seems in a thick cocoon, under the skin layer, but the cocoon seems slight attached to the last bit of layer of the skin (between skin and deeper tissue is an “open” layer, which makes the skin flexible). The chip is in a cocoon in that open layer, but the cocoon seems attached to the deepest layer of the skin, so grows into the skin from the open layer under the skin. Does that make sense? Cause I do not know for sure and like to know more, before asking a health professional with zero experience in chip removal.
Let’s start with the product… what product is it?
NEXT 2mm x 14mm
So far I have not found a chipimplant professional in Amsterdam (for add on, nor for removal). Piercing shops seem to not want to do it.
Did you check all of these?

i dont see Amsterdam on it. I read somewhere else Willem Vastbinder.
@Vicarious might have some suggestions
I can recommend Willem. When I was in the Netherlands last year he installed my Apex and I had a great experience. I did have to travel to his shop in Breda though, so it was a bit of a journey.
Yes, I also recommend Willem Vastbinder.
I don’t know if he only works at his piercing shop in Breda, or if he also still works at Walls & Skin or another shop in Amsterdam, contact him and ask
Thanks so far.
The cocooning layer, does it need to be taken out when to big or will the body resolve it in a few months any way after taken out the chip?
Does anyone has any insight in my original questions? Basically want to know more about the cocooning tissue around it, as I like to be well informed BEFORE i contact a piercing/health professional for help.
Generally you leave the tissue alone. It takes time but it should resolve on its own. Cutting and removing tissue is a complicated process and would require a cosmetic surgeon to do it well. Even regular surgeons leave terrible scarring and lumpy uneven results when they cut tissue.
Thanks, good answer, i guess.
I just felt it again and it seems much larger than the 2mm x 14mm of the NEXT chip. Does anyone else has the experience that the implant area feels much larger than anticipated? Does the NEXT chip make the body form more cocooning tissue or fat around it?
Remember that when you install an implant you’re not removing any “meat” as such.
Think of it very losely as a sub-dermal Archimedes principle.
Displacement - that meat has to go somewhere
How strong is bioglass? Does it ever get glass splinters from scalpels? (I will not use the twsissors too strongly, only scalpel or 1 side of twissors). Does anyone ever hear about it glass splinter while removal?
If you remove it with a hammer - it could splinter.
just let a trained installer do the job, it wont splinter.
I was not able to break a xnt like chip with a scalpel
