There are many reasons why someone might want to have their breast implants removed. It could be simply for aesthetic reasons, one of your implants might have been damaged, you may have decided your original implants were too large, or you may have an underlying health reason, such as breast cancer or capsular contraction, that makes you decide to remove the beast implants.
Why Are Breast Implants Removed?
In addition to the reasons mentioned above, your plastic surgeon may recommend the removal of your breast implants if you develop an infection, necrotic tissue, or bleeding. In addition, if you develop a calcium build-up or experience capsular contracture, the implants may need to be removed. Most often, this is the result of having the implant surgery performed by an inexperienced or uncertified physician.
What Does Breast Implant Removal Surgery Entail?
The procedure to remove breast implants simply removes the actual implant material and then our skilled surgeons reconstruct the breast area. Depending on the reason for the removal, some women opt to have the implants removed without replacement. This is often due to underlying damage or injury, or because of breast cancer. However, we can also replace the implants with new implants, either of a different material or size. We can also revise the implant if the shape is not right.
How Long Does the Breast Implant Removal Surgery Take?
In most cases the surgery takes a few hours. It may be more or less depending on the other accompanying procedures and whether or not any reconstruction is required. For many women, removal of breast implants is an emotional decision or driven by underlying health conditions, so it can be a very stressful time.
