About Breast Implant Removal

Sometimes after receiving a breast augmentation to enhance the size and contour of the breasts, a few women may choose to get them taken out for a number of factors. At Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY, plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli, John Layliev, and David Pincus meet with patients who wish to remove or replace their breast implants. In some cases, a breast lift might be required following implant removal based upon the size of the former implants, as well as how much your skin stretched. A breast lift can help to minimize sagging or excess skin, which could remain after an implant removal. If you're 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 of your breasts.

Ideal Candidates

Implant removal surgery may be used to fix a range of issues an individual may experience after a breast augmentation, such as scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and unhappiness with the new breast implants. Sometimes, women might simply prefer their original breast size and want to restore their normal look. Whatever the reason, breast augmentation removal may work to counteract the outcomes of a breast augmentation and if coupled with a breast lift, may reestablish a natural, desirable aesthetic look. Before your surgery, we will talk with you regarding your wanted look for your breasts as well as the way to achieve it.

Surgical Technique

During your breast implant removal surgery, the implants are taken out and scar tissue might also have to be eliminated. Scar tissue is typical after a breast augmentation and will need to be removed if it's affecting the form of your breast or causing discomfort. After the implants have been removed, We can conduct a fat transfer, breast lift, or possibly both to achieve your desired breast size and shape.  Additionally, there are a number of options 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, we will provide post-procedure directions and might suggest treatments to help reduce scarring. For the first couple of weeks, patients may experience swelling and bruising and should restrict strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. However, patients are encouraged to be generally mobile and active. Optimal results can normally be observed about 4 months following the operation.
