Breast Implant Removal
Some women want their implants removed because they are concerned about health issues that they feel are related to their implants, or they may simply be “tired” of their implants or frustrated with an unsatisfactory breast enhancement that they have been living with for a long time.
Breast implant removal is always an option. In terms of options, every patient is unique and requires a careful analysis to determine what option is best. Implant removal will affect not only the size but also the shape of the breast.
• For those women with small breasts and good tissue quality, simply removing the breast implants is all that is needed, as the breast will retract back nicely in most cases.
• For women with poor-quality breast tissue, a breast lift may be needed.
Many women are pleased that they have removed their breast implants, and they have no desire for future implants. Others who have elected to remove their implants return some time later for new breast implants, as they are not satisfied with the outcome. It’s good to know that you have options, and you don’t have to worry that you have made a bad choice—if you don’t like your breasts after implant removal, you always have the option to come back and have new ones placed.
