What is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal is like hitting rewind on your breast augmentation journey. It is a surgical procedure that allows individuals to turn back the clock. It is typically chosen by individuals who wish to reverse their breast augmentation or address issues related to their implants. The procedure involves carefully extracting the implants through small incisions in the breast area. Breast implant removal can be performed for various reasons.

When is Breast Implant Removal necessary?

Breast implant removal can be necessary for various reasons. Some of the common situations where individuals opt for this procedure include:

  • Implant rupture: When the implant shell breaks, resulting in a leak of silicone or saline, it is known as an implant rupture. Implant rupture can lead to swelling, pain, and inflammation.
  • Capsular contracture: This happens when scar tissue around the implant hardens and begins to put pressure on the implant. This can cause pain and create an unnatural breast shape.
  • Implant malposition: The implants can look unnatural or cause pain when removed from their original position.
  • Change in aesthetic preferences: Some individuals may wish to have their implants removed and their breasts returned to their original pre-augmentation size or shape.

Am I a candidate for Breast Implant Removal?

At the Plastic Surgery Institute, we provide comprehensive assessments to determine if you are a suitable candidate for breast implant removal. Candidates for breast implant removal must be 18 years or older and should have realistic expectations about the treatment outcome. Generally speaking, most healthy women are candidates for the procedure. Concerns a breast implant removal can address:

  • Pain and discomfort caused by a ruptured or deflated implant
  • Unnatural shape of the breast due to capsular contracture
  • Damage, infection, or inflammation caused by an implant
  • Changes in aesthetic preferences over time
  • Removal of a single implant due to asymmetry
  • Removal of both implants due to a desire to change the shape or size

The Breast Implant Removal Procedure

The breast implant removal procedure typically includes the use of general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Dr. Ordon or Dr. Chopra will make small, discreet incisions in the breast area. The implants are gently removed, and any associated scar tissue is removed. There are three different ways to remove breast implants and capsules.

  1. The first technique is surgery where an incision is created in the same location as the incision for the initial breast implant surgery.
  2. The second technique is surgery for breast implant removal combined with a breast lift. It is used if your breast skin is stretched or sagging. The surgeon removes excess skin and tightens breast tissue to provide better support. They may also resize the areolas to complement your breasts’ new shape better.
  3. If you have saline breast implants, an option for removal is deflation without surgery. This can be done using ultrasound, a non-invasive procedure that uses sound waves to soften the scar tissue and increase the blood supply in the affected area.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Following the procedure, you will wear a post-surgical bra or compression garment for support. Swelling and bruising are common but usually subside within one to two weeks. You should refrain from strenuous activities like heavy lifting for at least four weeks following your surgery. Most people achieve optimal results within three months of their procedure.
