What is Breast Implant Removal?

After getting breast augmentation to change the size and contour of the breasts, a few women may choose to have them taken out for a variety of factors. At John F. Burnett, MD in Fresno, CA, Dr. Burnett meets with patients who wish to remove their breast implants. At times, a breast lift might be required following implant removal, depending on the type of the former implants, as well as how much your skin was stretched. A lift can often help minimize sagging or excess skin, which could remain after implant removal. If you're wishing to go back to your original breast size, breast implant removal surgery and a breast lift with Dr. John F. Burnett may create beautiful results to get back the natural look and texture of your breasts.

How Does Breast Implant Removal Work?

During your breast implant removal surgery, the implants will be taken out via incision. Scar tissue is common after receiving implants and will need to be removed if it is affecting the form of your breasts or if it is causing pain. There are also a number of choices to restore volume following implant removal to enhance the shape of your breast. After the surgery, Dr. Burnett will provide post-procedure directions and may recommend treatments to help reduce scarring. For the first two or three weeks, patients may experience bruising and swelling and should restrict strenuous exercise until instructed otherwise. Optimal results can typically be seen roughly 4 – 6 months following the operation.
