Breast Implant Removal in Weston, Florida (FL)

You may want to have your breast implants removed for health or personal reasons. Implant removal surgery, also known as explant surgery, is usually quick with a mild recovery. Breast lift surgery is commonly done with implant removal to help uplift and restore the appearance of your natural breasts.

Reasons to have your breast implants removed

There are many potential reasons that you may unhappy with your breast implants and choose to have them removed. Reasons can include:        
  • Emotional stress or anxiety from having breast implants          
  • Unhappiness with the size and appearance of your breasts          
  • Medical complications such as capsular contracture, implant rupture, or pain in your neck, shoulders, and back          
  • Dissatisfaction with implant maintenance and upkeep          
  • Inability to exercise or play sports due to the size and weight of your implants

How breast implant removal is performed

Breast implant removal surgery is done under local or general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make incisions in your breasts, usually over your original scars, and pull out your implants. Your implants are surrounded by capsules of natural fibrous scar tissue, and your surgeon may also remove these capsules if they are overly thick or calcified. Your incisions are then closed, usually with dissolvable stitches.

You may choose to also have breast lift surgery at the time of your implant removal to rejuvenate the appearance of your natural breasts. Your surgeon will make incisions around your areolas, remove excess breast skin, and may also raise the position of your nipples and areolas. The size and placement of the incisions can vary depending on how much tissue is removed.

Recovery

Most women can return to their normal activities after two to three days. If you also have a breast lift, then you may need to rest for around a week and avoid strenuous activity for about one month. You will have some pain, swelling, and discomfort, but this should subside after a few days.

Costs

The costs of breast implant removal depend on your location, surgeon, and the extent of your surgery. Anesthesia fees, surgery fees, and whether or not you have a breast lift affect costs as well. You can speak with your surgeon and health insurance provider for detailed cost information.
