Rarely, do patients ever set their sights on — what If — I’m not happy with my breast implants.
While infrequent, some women do elect to have their breast implants removed and do not wish to have the breast implant revision surgery or replacement surgery.
Many women who choose to have their breast implants removed in Mexico can do so without other procedures being performed to restore their breasts back to their natural appearance.
However, over time skin elasticity becomes poor and many times women choose to combine a breast lift with breast implant removal in order to restore a perkier bust.
Choosing to Have Breast Implants Removed
Why are women choosing to have their breast implants removed? Women may choose to have their implants removed due to cosmetic dissatisfaction, to address complications such as capsular contracture or for reasons concerning implant shifting, wrinkling, rupture, deflation or asymmetry.
Some women may react adversely to the implant and develop an infection or bleed as a result. A breast cancer diagnosis can also necessitate breast implant removal, as can the presence of calcium deposits in the breasts.
Breast Implant Removal Procedure
The implants are removed using the original breast augmentation scar. The appearance of the breasts after breast implant removal is variable, depending on the amount and elasticity of the remaining breast skin. In some cases, a breast lift is required, following breast implant removal.
Breast implant removal surgery usually takes under an hour to perform, typically using general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Your surgeon will start by removing scar tissue (the capsule) that surrounds the implant. Next, he or she will remove the implant. If you chose saline breast implants, your surgeon may deflate them before removal.
In some cases, the capsule may also be removed. This procedure is called a capsulectomy. It may be performed if:
- The implant is not being replaced
- A new implant is to be placed in a new position
- The new implant is larger
- The new implant is a different type or texture
