Oftentimes the larger breast size once desired when younger no longer fits, or a variety of medical problems or personal choices can sometimes make implants no longer desirable. Whatever the reason, if you are thinking about removing your breast implants, you want an experienced, caring plastic surgeon like Dr. Filip or Dr. Eichenberg.

Removing Breast Implants
Prior to your procedure, you will meet with your surgeon so that you can understand the details of your surgery. Some patients choose to replace their implants with a smaller, more proportional size, or undergo a breast lift to create a more attractive, “perky” breast shape. Simple implant removal can be done under local anesthesia. Twilight sedation or general anesthesia are also an option. During the procedure your surgeon carefully removes your implants and, if needed any excessive scar tissue around the implant. Recovery time is typically much faster than when placing implants the first time and patients return to most activities pain-free in a few days.
