Is Breast Implant Removal Right for You?

Exploring Your Candidacy

You might be a candidate for breast implant removal if you are in good physical health, and you have concerns that may be resolved with this procedure. Such concerns may include implant heaviness, discomfort, capsular contracture, leakage, or dissatisfaction with the appearance of your breasts.

Furthermore, patients experiencing breast implant illness or those who have textured implants may be candidates for breast implant removal or breast revision surgery. If you are having issues with your implants and wish to replace them with new implants, you may be a candidate for breast revision. Breast revision allows you to resolve concerns associated with your current implants and make adjustments to your look regarding the size or feel of your breasts.

What’s Involved

To remove your implants, Dr. Richland will create an incision on the lower portion of the breast or around the areola. He will then remove your implant, as well as the surrounding scar tissue. A breast lift may be included in your procedure to prevent your breasts from sagging or appearing deflated.

The Consultation Process

Dr. Richland considers every facet of your needs to provide you with your optimal treatment plan and results. During your consultation, he will listen attentively to achieve a comprehensive understanding of your concerns, medical needs, lifestyle, and expectations, as well as examine the condition of your breasts. Based on this information, he will present you with your best treatment options, discussing the pros and cons of each. Then, together, you will create your unique treatment plan.

Breast Implant Removal FAQs

While any surgery can cause some level of pain or discomfort, breast implant removal is generally more tolerable than the initial breast augmentation. However, you may experience tenderness, soreness, or sensitivity while your breasts heal.

Due to the loss of volume, your breasts will appear smaller after the implants are removed. However, your breast appearance may be improved if you wish to have a breast lift at the same time as your removal procedure.

Depending on your reasons for treatment, insurance may cover your breast explant procedure. If your implants have ruptured or you have been diagnosed with capsular contracture, your procedure may be eligible for coverage.

Breast revision involves breast reshaping with replacing the old implants, while with removal, the implants are not replaced.
