Breast implants are just as popular as ever, so it makes perfect sense that the continuing growth in the number of women opting for this surgery has caused a correlational spike in the amount of breast implant removals. If you’re considering this procedure, this blog post will cover a few of the things that our patients often ask our breast implant removal doctors before they go ahead with the surgery.
Should I have my breast implants removed?
Women often ask us this, but it usually always comes down to personal choice. There’s no one set of circumstances that will lead to a woman considering breast implant removal. It could be that she is no longer happy with the way her breast implants look, or perhaps she wishes to change her current implants for new ones with a different shape, or which were created with more modern technology — breast implants are becoming more realistic all the time.
Alternatively, it might be the case that her breast implants are actually posing a health risk. This could be due to the rare occurrence of a contracture or leakage in which the saline from the implants leaks into the body due to a rupture in the lining. A consultation with our qualified breast implant removal doctors will help you assess whether having your implants removed will be beneficial for your health and wellbeing, or whether you may benefit from having them replaced instead.
Is breast implant removal safe?
When you’re choosing your breast implant removal doctors, it’s a good idea to check they have a longstanding reputation for performing quality procedures to a high standard. If you have chosen Hanemann Plastic Surgery, then you can have peace of mind that the procedure is completely safe. It will be performed whilst you are completely sedated, and an anesthetist will monitor you throughout the procedure. Our breast implant removal doctors will also check the implant pocket for any tumors whilst performing the surgery.
How long does the breast implant removal process take?
The procedure undertaken by our reputable breast implant removal doctors should not take more than an hour overall.
How will I feel afterward?
The recovery period after breast implant removal is actually somewhat easier than after you first got the implants. There should be little to no pain. You will also be provided with a medical wrap, which must be worn for a week to ensure the tissues heal properly.
