About Breast Implant Removal

Sometimes after undergoing a breast augmentation to change the size and contour of the breasts, a few women may choose to get them taken out for a number of factors. At The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery in Ashburn, VA, Dr. Michael J. Brown meets with patients who wish to get rid of their breast implants. At times, a breast lift might be required following implant removal based upon the size and type of the former implants, as well as how much your skin was stretched. A breast lift can typically help minimize sagging or excess skin, which could remain after implant removal. If you are attempting to go back to your previous breast size, implant removal surgery along with a breast lift may produce amazing results to get back the original appearance and texture of your breasts.

Ideal Candidates

Implant removal surgery may be utilized to correct a range of issues a patient may experience after a breast augmentation, such as scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and unhappiness with the breast implants. Sometimes women might simply prefer their original breast size and wish to restore their normal look. Regardless of the reason, breast augmentation removal may operate to counteract the outcomes of breast augmentation and if coupled with a breast lift, may reestablish a natural, desirable aesthetic look. Before your surgery, Dr. Brown will talk with you regarding your wanted look for your breasts, as well as the way to reach it.

Surgical Technique

During your breast implant removal procedure, the implants are taken out and scar tissue might also have to be eliminated. Scar tissue is not uncommon after a breast augmentation and will need to be removed if it is affecting the form of your breasts or causing discomfort. After the implants have been taken out, Dr. Brown can conduct a fat transfer, breast lift, or possibly both based on what had been decided upon during your appointment. Additionally, there are a number of alternatives to replace volume following an implant removal to improve the shape of your breast.

What to Expect

The recovery period will vary for every individual, depending on the repair required after the procedure. After the process, Dr. Brown will provide post-procedure directions and might suggest additional procedures to help eliminate scarring. For the first few weeks, patients may experience swelling and bruising and must restrict strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. However, patients are invited to stand and gradually move around as it will help with blood circulation. Optimal results can normally be observed roughly 4 – 6 months following the operation.
