About The Procedure
Breast Implant Removal
Choosing to have your breast implants removed is a personal decision. Some women want a smaller breast size because of weight fluctuations or because, over time, their breasts have become droopy. Others opt for removal because their implants have been damaged, shifted, or ruptured. Whatever the reasons, we are happy to discuss options to safely and effectively remove implants.
Depending on a patient’s needs, either a local anesthetic or local anesthesia with IV sedation will be offered. An incision is then made under breast, often using the same incisional lines from the original augmentation surgery, to remove your implants. If the implants are saline, they may be drained before they are removed. This also helps ensure that the incision is as small as possible.
Each patient will have a different set of challenges for implant removal, so ask questions during the consultation to find out how your removal surgery will operate.
Removal is not the only option for those looking to downsize their breasts. Smaller implants can replace the current implants as well. In conjunction with a slight lift, smaller implants can create the desired aesthetic without allowing the pocket created for the original implant to close entirely. That way, if a patient wants to opt for a larger size in the future, there will be less trauma when reopening the area.
Every type of procedure will come with its own set of recovery challenges. For information on recovery after breast surgery, click the button below.
