What is Breast Implant Removal?
After receiving breast augmentation to change the size and contour of the breasts, some women may decide to have them taken out for a variety of reasons. At Inspire Aesthetics in Delray Beach and Fort Lauderdale, FL, our skilled plastic surgery team meets with patients who wish to get rid of their breast implants. At times, a breast lift may be needed following implant removal based on the size of the implants, as well as how much your skin stretched. A breast lift can typically help get rid of excess or sagging skin, which could remain after implant removal. If you're needing to return to your original breast size, implant removal surgery and a breast lift may create beautiful results to get back the original look and texture of your breasts.
Breast Implant Removal Reviews
"My breasts look amazing and I got my confidence back - There are no words to describe my gratitude to Dr. Crane and the Inspire staff. I underwent a breast revision surgery the week of Thanksgiving. I met with four surgeons surgeons prior to meeting with Dr. Crane. I knew immediately I wanted to undergo my procedure under Dr. Crane’s care. He’s a talented surgeon with exceptional training. On top of his expertise, he’s incredibly kind, empathetic, and patient. Dr. Crane took the time to listen to my concerns and answer all of my questions. He possesses a positive energy and an eye for aesthetics. Operations day was perfect. The nurses -incredible!! They said the nicest things to me when I was coming out of anesthesia and took good care of me as I was prepped for the operating room. After surgery, Dr. Crane came to check on me and he called to check in the next day. I’m two months post op and thrilled with my results! My breast look amazing and I got my confidence back!"- F. / RealSelf / Jan 19, 2023
Who is an ideal candidate for breast implant removal?
Implant removal surgery can be employed to fix an array of concerns you may experience after breast augmentation, such as scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and unhappiness with the breast size. In some cases, women may simply prefer their original breast size and want to return them to their normal look. Whatever the reason, breast implant removal may function to counteract the outcomes of breast augmentation, and if combined with a breast lift, it can restore a natural, desirable aesthetic appearance. Prior to your procedure, we will talk with you regarding your aspired look for your breasts and how to achieve it.
How does breast implant removal work?
For the breast implant removal procedure, the implants will be taken out and scar tissue may also have to be eliminated. Scar tissue is typical after receiving implants and needs to be removed if it is affecting the form of the breast or causing pain. After the implants are removed, we can carry out a breast lift, fat transfer, or both, depending on what was discussed during your consultation. There are also several options to restore volume following implant removal to improve the shape of the breast.
What can i Expect after breast implant removal?
The recovery period will vary for each patient, depending on the reconstruction required after the implant removal. After the process, our team will provide post-procedure directions and may suggest additional treatments to help reduce scarring. For the first couple of weeks, patients may experience bruising and swelling and must restrict strenuous exercise until instructed otherwise. However, patients are invited to get up and slowly move around because it can help with blood flow. Optimal results can typically be observed roughly 4 – 6 months after the procedure.
