Are you considering having your breast implants removed? This is something that is happening more and more often nowadays, and you should know that there is expert help available, both for the removal of the implants and for getting the results you want after this procedure.

Why Consider an Implant Removal?

In rare cases, an implant should be removed for medical reasons; in some patients they can cause complications and discomfort. Some women aren’t having problems with their implants, they just worry that they might in the future. Some kinds of breast implants should be removed or replaced after 10 to 15 years, and some women just decide they don’t want them anymore. Or, perhaps you have decided that the look no longer suits you, and you would like to go back to a more natural look.

Whatever the reason, at your plastic surgery consultation, your doctor will go over the process for the implant removal. You will receive instructions for before the surgery, such as to avoid certain supplements and anti-inflammatory drugs that might increase your risk of bleeding and to stop smoking. On the day of the operation, you may be given intravenous sedation or general anesthesia to help you relax. The surgeon will remove the implants, and then, if you have opted for a breast lift, he or she will reshape the breast, tighten any excess skin, and make both breasts look symmetrical. If a woman wants the look of larger breasts but has decided she doesn’t want silicone or saline in her body anymore, she may choose to have her implants removed and then have a fat transfer breast augmentation along with a breast lift. In a fat transfer, fat cells are harvested from another part of the body to increase breast size and reshape the breasts.
