There could be many possible reasons why you are no longer happy with breast implants that you got years ago – it happens more often than you might expect. But what is important is that you know you don’t have to live with breast implants if you don’t want them anymore. Read on for more information about a breast explant procedure!
Common reasons for a breast explant procedure
Some of the most common reasons women want their implants removed include:
• Wanting a more natural look
• Feeling physically or emotionally uncomfortable with implants
• No longer identifying with the original reasons you wanted breast implants
• Being tired of worrying about implants rupturing or other health concerns
In the end, it doesn’t really matter why you want your implants removed – what matters is that you feel comfortable and happy with your body!
What happens after my implants are taken out?
Even if you are sure you want your implants taken out, the question of what your breasts will look like afterward can make you hesitate. No one can say for sure what your chest will look like after an explant procedure, but there are other procedures you can have after the implant removal to make your breasts look natural again. A breast lift to reshape the breasts, improve the symmetry and positioning, and tighten the skin or a breast reduction to improve the shape, size, and position are options. Some women also opt for a fat transfer to the breasts to help enhance their volume.
Most any woman is a good candidate for a breast explant procedure. You should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery.
