What Is Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

During the procedure, if necessary, any built-up scar tissue will also be removed. Once this is done, the incision will be closed and the procedure is completed.

Should I Get A Breast Implant Removal?

As mentioned above, women may decide to undergo a breast explant for a number of reasons.

  • Dissatisfied or unhappy with your breast augmentation surgery results.
  • Personal decision to get back to your original breast size.
  • Medical complications either caused by your breast implants or medical condition that is related to your breast implants.
  • If you are experiencing BIA-ALCL symptoms – this can happen if you have textured breast implants which have been recalled by the FDA.

Preparing for your Breast Implant Removal Surgery

Prior to your breast implant removal surgery, you will be required to undergo special tests which include getting an ultrasound and mammogram, and an MRI.

You will also be required to follow set guidelines with your diet. You will also be asked to discontinue certain medication and refrain from drinking from smoking as well at least two weeks before your surgery. Post your surgery, it is highly advisable that you have a family member, relative or friend drive you back home.

No. Breast implant removal surgery typically takes approximately one hour to complete. During this time you will be administered an anesthetic by Dr. Ortegon so you will not experience any discomfort or pain during your breast implant removal surgery. Post your breast explant, Dr. Ortegon will prescribe pain medication to effectively alleviate any post-operative pain or discomfort.
