This procedure is also known as a Breast Implant Removal. The initial insertion of breast implants is a voluntary procedure, but for many reasons, an individual may opt to have them removed. Often, breast implant removal may be necessary. For example, in situations involving implant rupture, incomplete healing or infection. Depending on the situation, scar tissue around the original implant may be removed in addition to removing the breast implants.
Procedure: It can take about 2 to 4 hours to perform. Time requirements vary depending on the patient's unique case.
Results: Most patients are able to return to work a week after a Breast Implant Removal surgery especially if the scar capsule is removed. You may have drains placed during surgery. These will be removed in the office. Recovery takes several days. Breast Implant Removal recovery involves moderate discomfort. Strenuous activity should be postponed until you are told you can by the doctor.
