If you have found yourself unsatisfied with the look or feel of your breast implants, breast implant removal can give you the opportunity to achieve a look that better fits your current life stage and meets your personal cosmetic goals.
Patients may choose to have their breast implants removed for a variety of reasons. Most frequently, this surgery better aligns the patient’s body with their preferred aesthetic and current lifestyle. If a patient’s large breast implants are causing back problems or discomfort, she may wish to replace the implants with a smaller size or return to her natural breast size without an implant.
In some cases, the body may react to the implant in a way that changes the texture of the breast and may require either replacement or removal. This may involve the formation of a capsular contraction and calcification around the implant, causing discomfort. Other women who have undergone breast augmentation may have simply changed their aesthetic ideals or would prefer a more comfortable, practical breast size.
Regardless of what prompts your decision, our board-certified plastic surgery specialists can evaluate your candidacy for breast implant removal and can even provide professional recommendations for complementary procedures that can be performed during the same surgery, so you can enjoy comprehensive results.
