How Is Breast Implant Removal or Exchange Performed?
Whenever possible, Dr. Mozaffari, who is an experienced breast implant removal surgeon, prefers to use the same incision lines as your breast augmentation procedure, but this is not always possible or necessary. If he does use new incision lines, steps are taken to ensure that the resulting scar is well-hidden. He may remove any scar tissue that is present before the implant is removed, or it may be more beneficial to remove the implant first.
Once the implant is removed, he will tighten the tissues if the implant is not to be replaced. If you are exchanging your implants, he works in the breast cavity to correct any issues that may allow the implant to shift or not be positioned properly.
Your procedure may involve the addition of fat grafts to refine the shape and continuity of the breasts. You can see the results of the technique in our breast implant removal fat transfer before and after pictures.
What is Recovery Like After Breast Implant Removal or Exchange?
Recovery from breast implant removal tends to mirror the initial breast augmentation procedure, averaging six to 12 months for complete healing.
