Your Breast Implant Removal Consultation
During your consultation, you will discuss your reasons for wanting to remove your breast implants. You will also need to present your medical records, especially the records for your breast augmentation procedure. The plastic surgeon will conduct a detailed examination of the patient, especially in the breast area.
The results of the examination and the records of the previous breast augmentation surgery will be considered when developing the treatment plan. To help with your preparation, the plastic surgeon will provide specific instructions, including the medications, supplements, and diet allowed prior to the scheduled procedure.
Your Breast Implant Procedure Options
Individual factors such as body build, breast size, and breast shape will determine the appropriate implant size and surgical approach to fulfill your needs.
Breast Implant Removal
Breast implant removal alone is ideal for women who would like their implants removed and who do not seek further enhancement. During your procedure, the incision made during your previous breast procedure is reopened, through which the implants and scar tissue are carefully removed. The treated area is then cleaned, and the incision is closed using surgical sutures.
Breast Implant Removal With Lift
Some women who decide to have their implants removed may be left with a significant amount of breast sagging. Breast implant removal with breast lift surgery can remove your breast implants and raise the breasts to create a more youthful, perky bustline. This technique can also reposition and resize the nipple-areolar complex.
Breast Implant Removal With Lift and Fat Grafting
For the best results, you can combine your breast implant removal procedure with breast lift surgery and fat grafting. Once your implants are removed, breast lift surgery can lift the breasts to a higher position on your chest while fat grafting restores volume to the breasts. This combination of procedures is designed to create a natural and aesthetically pleasing bust.
