Breast Surgery

What Is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal is a surgical procedure that removes augmentation devices—either silicone or saline implants—to reverse the effects of breast augmentation. This surgery can be done for medical reasons, personal reasons, or both, restoring the breasts to a look that reflects their pre-augmentation state. The removal of breast implants typically takes one to two hours and is performed as an outpatient procedure. In some cases, it can be done in our Linwood or Haddonfield office.

Benefits of Breast Implant Removal

Each patient’s circumstances determine the unique advantages of breast implant removal, such as relieving back or neck problems due to large implants, adjusting breast size with new smaller or larger implants, switching implant types (saline to silicone, or vice versa), removing ruptured or damaged implants, alleviating discomfort or visible changes from capsular contracture, or restoring a more natural figure and proportions.

What Is the Sood Center Breast Implant Removal Experience?

The process of removing breast implants starts with administering sedation to the patient either intravenously or through general anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Dr. Sood will examine the implant pocket for any abnormalities, make an incision along the original line, and remove the old implant and any scar tissue as necessary. If a replacement implant is chosen, he will then insert it and adjust the pocket for size and position.

In case of silicone implant rupture, Dr. Sood will perform a thorough process to remove all silicone gel in the breast tissue.

Note that skin can stretch over time as tissues expand to accommodate implants or heavier breasts pull downward with gravity. If breasts sag after implants have been removed, a breast lift can be performed at the same time as the breast implant removal to elevate them. Some patients may opt for new implants to address a “deflated” look.

Pre-and Post-Removal Surgery Care Tips

Paying attention to specific aspects of care before and after surgery is crucial for successful breast implant removal:

A mammogram is essential before surgery, as this tool offers insights into breast health and helps Dr. Sood make informed decisions during the procedure itself. Make sure to schedule your mammogram appointment ahead of time and adhere to any preparation instructions given by your healthcare team. This ensures any potential abnormalities are detected early so appropriate measures can be taken.

It is crucial to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting after surgery—especially when getting new implants—to ensure proper healing. Dr. Sood will give you specific instructions on activity limitations, and it’s important to adhere to them closely for the best possible recovery. To maintain circulation and promote healing, we may recommend doing gentle stretches and short walks.

If you arrange for assistance with post-surgery daily tasks ahead of time, you can avoid putting undue stress on the incision sites and heal faster. Get help from family, friends, or professional services for chores like cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping and childcare.

Since the anesthesia or sedation will have a lasting effect after breast implant removal surgery, it’s not safe to drive yourself home, so you need to arrange transportation. It’s important to make arrangements for a responsible adult to pick you up and take you home from the clinic.

To ensure a smooth recovery process and minimize complications associated with breast implant removal, it is essential to follow these critical steps and any additional guidelines provided by Dr. Sood and our team.

Recovery timelines vary depending on the person, but there is generally a straightforward path to expect. After the procedure, there will be initial bruising and swelling, but the appearance of the breasts will improve gradually. Don’t be alarmed if you experience these typical symptoms during recovery.

Finally, it’s quite common to experience emotional challenges during breast implant removal, but you don’t have to face them alone. There are resources available. To help you navigate this period, consider seeking support from groups, online communities, or counseling services. Maintain a positive mindset and practice self-care while recovering—and know that you can always call us for answers, advice, and guidance.

Breast Implant Removal vs. Breast Revision: What’s the Difference?

Differentiating between breast implant removal and breast revision surgeries can help you to decide on altering your silhouette with surgery.

Breast Implant Removal

Breast implant removal surgery involves taking implants out, but not necessarily replacing them. Patients who no longer wish to have implants or are experiencing complications with older implants—such as implant rupture or capsular contracture—often consider this procedure. The end result is a more natural-looking bust that typically mirrors your pre-augmentation breast size. However, other changes in appearance may arise due to natural aging, weight changes, and how long the implants were in place.

Breast Revision

Breast revision surgery involves removing old implants and replacing them with new ones. Breast revision may be required for medical reasons (such as issues with the implants themselves) or chosen for cosmetic reasons (general dissatisfaction or to change the size, shape, or type of implant). The objective of this process is to improve or alter the outcomes of the first breast enlargement surgery to match your current aesthetic or medical needs.
