What is Breast Implant Removal?

After undergoing breast augmentation to improve the size and contour of the breasts, a few women may decide to have them taken out for a variety of factors. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville, FL, our expert surgeons consult with patients who want to remove their breast implants. Sometimes, a breast lift might be required following implant removal based upon the size of the former implants, as well as how much the skin has stretched. A breast lift can help get rid of excess or sagging skin, which could remain after implant removal. If you are wishing to return to your original breast size, implant removal surgery and a breast lift may create amazing results to get back the original look and feel of your breasts.

Am i a candidate for breast implant removal?

Implant removal surgery can be utilized to correct a range of issues you may have after breast augmentation, such as scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and unhappiness with the breast implants. Sometimes, women might simply prefer their original breasts and want to restore their normal appearance. Regardless of the reason, breast implant removal can work to counteract the results of breast augmentation and when coupled with a breast lift, may restore a natural, desirable aesthetic look. Prior to your procedure, one of our leading surgeons will discuss with you your aspired look for your breasts and how to achieve it.

how does breast implant removal work?

For the breast implant removal surgery, the implants are taken out and scar tissue might also need to be eliminated. Scar tissue is not uncommon after breast augmentation and will need to be removed if it is affecting the form of the breasts or causing discomfort. After the implants are removed, your surgeon may perform a breast lift, fat transfer, or possibly both, depending on what had been discussed during your consultation. There are also several choices to replace volume following implant removal to enhance the shape of your breasts.

how long is recovery from breast implant removal?

The recovery time will vary for each patient, depending upon the reconstruction required after implant removal. After the procedure, your doctor will provide post-operative instructions and might recommend additional procedures to help reduce scarring. For the first couple of weeks, patients will experience swelling and bruising and must restrict strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. However, patients are encouraged to stand and gradually move around since it will help with blood flow. Optimal results can typically be seen approximately 4 – 6 months following the operation.
