What is Breast Implant Removal?

After receiving a breast augmentation to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, some women may decide to get them taken out for a variety of factors. At The Face & Body Center of Plastic and Hand Surgery Associates in Flowood, MS, Dr. Kenneth Barraza meets with women who want to get rid of their breast implants. In some cases, a breast lift might be required after implant removal based on the size and type of the implants, as well as how much your skin stretched. A lift can help to get rid of excess or sagging skin that can remain after implant removal. If you're wanting to return to your original breast size, implant removal surgery and a breast lift can produce beautiful results to restore the original appearance and texture of your breasts.

Ideal Candidates

Breast implant removal may be employed to fix an array of issues you may experience after a breast augmentation, including scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and dissatisfaction with the new breast size. Sometimes, women might just prefer their original breast size and want to restore their normal appearance. No matter the reason, breast augmentation removal can work to counteract the outcomes of breast augmentation and when combined with a breast lift, may reestablish a natural, desirable aesthetic look. Before your surgery, Dr. Barraza will talk with you regarding your aspired look for your breasts and how to reach it.

Surgical Technique

During the breast implant removal operation, 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's affecting the shape of the breast or causing pain. After the implants have been taken out, Dr. Barraza can perform a fat transfer, breast lift, or both based on what had been decided upon during your consultation. There are also a number of alternatives to restore volume after an implant removal to improve the shape of your breast.

What to Expect

The recovery time will vary for each patient, depending upon the repair needed after the procedure. After the process, Dr. Barraza will deliver post-procedure directions and may recommend treatments to help eliminate scarring. For the first 2 – 3 weeks, patients may experience swelling and bruising and should limit strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. But, patients are invited to stand and gradually move around since it can help with blood flow. Optimal results can normally be seen about 4 – 6 months following the procedure.
