Breast Implant Removal With Lift

Breast Implant Removal With Lift

While many women are highly satisfied with the look and feel of their breasts after breast augmentation with implants, some women change their mind. Changes in lifestyle and aesthetic desires, implant complications, breast pain, and fear of breast implant illness cause some women to return to their plastic surgeon for a revision. Removal can be a standalone procedure; however, many women experience breast sagging after the implants are gone. A breast lift can be performed during the implant removal procedure to ensure that the lighter, smaller breasts remain youthful and elevated.

Many women who choose to only have their breast implants remove regret the result as their breast tissue has laxity and their breasts now naturally sag after their implants are removed. This is due to the inability of the breast tissue to shrink back to the original size after being expanded and stretched by the implants.

However, most women decide that they will require some surgical correction of the breasts after implant removal to ensure an aesthetically pleasing result.

Breast appearance can vary from woman to woman. But generally if breast implants are removed without correction you may experience one or more of the following: lower breast sagging (ptosis), a deflated breast appearance, drooping nipples that point downward and the accumulation of loose breast tissue.

What Can Breast Implant Removal With Lift Improve?

Women choose to get breast implants for many reasons. Not all women are pleased with the larger breast appearance after augmentation. Breast implant removal with a breast lift allows these women to remove their breast implants without having to fear that their missing implants will lead to breast sagging.

While some women decide to remove their breast implants because they are dissatisfied with the aesthetic appearance, other women remove their implants after post-operative complications from their initial augmentation.

Some women choose to replace their implants for different sizes or when an implant wears out; others decide that the implants are not worth the hassle. Implant removal combined with a breast lift is ideal for those who do not wish to replace their implants.

When women undergo breast augmentation, the breast skin and surrounding tissues stretch and become accustomed to the presence of the implant. When the implant is gone, the skin and tissue cannot always contract around the smaller breast. This creates premature breast sagging. Breast lift surgery restores youth and vitality to the breasts.

Breast Implant Removal And Lift Recovery

Depending on the specifics of your procedure, you may be able to return home the day of your surgery. Recovery time differs for everyone.

Many people are able to resume working in about five days, but it’ll be about six weeks until you can resume strenuous activities like exercising and lifting.

Following all postoperative instructions can help improve your healing time and prevent infection.
