Many women who undergo breast augmentation notice a significant improvement in their figure and self-esteem. While breast implants can enhance the overall size and shape of the breasts, they can also rupture, develop complications, and change the aesthetics of the breasts over time. Implant removal is a surgical breast revision procedure that removes a patient’s breast implants to restore natural breasts and eliminate any negative physical or emotional symptoms associated with the implants.
Reasons for Implant Removal
Implant Defects or Complications
Certain issues like implant rupture or capsular contracture can necessitate implant removal. These problems may develop immediately after augmentation surgery or years down the line, and they may be the result of an inexperienced surgeon or the body’s natural reaction to implants. Implant removal can address these concerns to produce a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
A woman’s body can experience significant changes due to aging, weight loss, and pregnancy that can cause breast implants from a previous augmentation to look unnatural or unbalanced over time. Some patients may decide their implants no longer represent the look they want to achieve. Others, involved in sports or new hobbies, may find implants interfere with their new lifestyle. In those cases, implant removal can restore a sense of satisfaction and balance in keeping with new lifestyle choices.
Displeasing Initial Results
After breast augmentation, some women feel that their breast implants look unflattering or that they did not achieve the results they expected. This can cause embarrassment or self-consciousness about their appearance. Implant removal can restore the breasts to their original shape and position to restore a woman’s confidence and self-esteem.
