Breast implant removal is a surgical procedure designed to remove breast implants that were previously placed for breast augmentation or reconstruction. There are various reasons why individuals may choose to undergo breast implant removal, and the procedure can be performed with or without replacement of the implants. Here are key aspects of breast implant removal:

Reasons for Breast Implant Removal:

Personal Choice: Some individuals may choose to have their breast implants removed due to personal preferences, changes in aesthetic preferences, or lifestyle considerations.

Complications: Complications such as implant rupture, leakage, or capsular contracture (the formation of scar tissue around the implant) can lead to the decision to remove implants.

Health Concerns: In some cases, health concerns or medical issues may prompt individuals to consider removing their breast implants.

Implant Lifespan: Breast implants are not considered permanent devices, and over time, individuals may choose to remove or replace them due to concerns about the longevity of the implants.

Breast Implant Removal Procedure:

Consultation: Individuals considering breast implant removal undergo a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon evaluates the patient’s reasons for removal, discusses potential outcomes, and addresses any concerns.

Surgery Planning: The surgeon develops a surgical plan based on the patient’s goals, whether it involves removing the implants only or performing additional procedures such as breast lift or fat grafting.

Anesthesia: Breast implant removal is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure.

Incision Placement: The surgeon makes incisions, often using the same incisions as the original breast augmentation procedure, to access and remove the implants.

Implant Removal: The surgeon carefully removes the breast implants and may address any associated issues, such as removing scar tissue (capsulectomy) if necessary.

Optional Procedures: Depending on the patient’s goals, additional procedures like a breast lift (mastopexy) or fat grafting may be performed to enhance the breast appearance.

Closure: The incisions are closed using sutures, and dressings or bandages are applied to support the healing process.

Recovery and Aftercare:

Patients are provided with postoperative care instructions, including information about managing any discomfort, taking prescribed medications, and wearing supportive garments.

Recovery times can vary, but patients are generally advised to avoid strenuous activities and follow the surgeon’s recommendations for a smooth recovery.


The results of breast implant removal depend on the individual’s goals. Some may choose not to replace the implants, while others may opt for a replacement or additional procedures to achieve their desired outcome.

It’s important for individuals considering breast implant removal to have open communication with their surgeon, discuss their expectations, and understand the potential outcomes of the procedure.
