Breast implant removal may be performed due to capsular contracture or discovered silent rupture. In cases where patients seek out removal for aesthetic purposes, your surgeon will speak with you about your concerns and goals before going over your options for removal or replacement. Some women choose to have implants taken out in as little as 5-10 years, while others might be happy with their implants for 20+ years.
Implant removal is a highly customized procedure. You can opt to have your implants solely removed or replaced in a single procedure. Thanks to the latest surgical techniques and improved implant quality over the years, women can achieve fuller breasts with more natural-looking outcomes. Breast shape can most often be improved during the same procedure.
