Why you might need to remove your breast implants?
Have you had a breast augmentation with implants in the past, but are considering having them removed? If so, you may be able to benefit from breast implant removal with Dr. Azouz. Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons is dedicated to providing the best natural-looking and beautiful results to each of our patients. With many breast implants banned in the United States or recalled by the FDA, many patients are turning to plastic surgeons to remove their breast implants and capsules.
Why Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implants that have been present for many years can have silent leaks, ruptures, and capsules. Dr. Azouz often finds leaked and free-floating silicone which causes severe capsules and scar tissue. Capsular contracture, can be painful or distort the look of the breast.
Breast implants can be removed through a variety of incision lines and in combination with many other plastic surgery procedures including breast lifts, liposuction, and in conjunction with a tummy tuck.
Breast implant removal:
During this procedure, incisions can be created in the same places they were during breast implant surgery, to reduce the need to create more scarring. A total capsulectomy is routinely performed at the same time as the implants are removed. If a lift is performed in conjunction with breast implant removal, a separate incision may or may not be necessary.
Breast implant removal with a breast lift:
If desired, a breast lift can be performed at the same time as your breast implant removal. This can help to lift your breasts to a perkier position. The areolas can also be resized to fit your new, smaller breast shape.
How do you prevent sag after breast implant removal?
Breast implant removal with a lift is the best way to prevent sag after a breast implant removal. Many patients elect to have liposuction of the lateral breast (side boob) and/or the axilla (armpit fat) at the same time as their breast implant removal.
