What is Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

For the last decade, breast implant surgery has been the number one cosmetic procedure worldwide. As part of reconstructive surgery or modifying a small cup size, implants come in either saline or silicone and in all different shapes and sizes to fit all body types and cosmetic goals.

While most women are satisfied with their implant surgery, there are cases when a problem arises. There are several reasons why women may want their implants removed, but the two most common reasons are because they have second thoughts about the way they look, or the implants are causing physical complications.

How is Breast Implant Removal Surgery Performed?

Breast implant removal surgery is usually a straightforward, simple procedure that utilizes the incision paths of the original surgery. Doctor Hanemann will safely and carefully remove the implants while maintaining the integrity of the tissue and causing no further damage or irritation to the breast.

After the implants are removed, the breasts should return to their original shape. In cases where implants were inside of the breasts for an extended period, the skin may have some degree of looseness or droopiness after the implants are removed.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

Healthy women who are dissatisfied with their implants or have a medical necessity to have them removed may be candidates for this procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Hanemann will assess your medical history, cosmetic goals, and breast condition to determine the best treatment plan for you.

What is Recovery Like?

After breast implant removal surgery, you should expect to relax at home for the first few days. You may be issued a comfortable bra with adjustable straps to protect your breasts as they heal. Doctor Hanemann may prescribe medication to you to ease any discomfort you may have.

After the first few days after surgery, most patients are up and walking around, and in a lot of cases begin resuming basic activities. Doctor Hanemann will advise you on the best time to return to work and other regular activities, although exercising should be avoided until the breasts have fully healed.
