Breast Implant Removal in Scottsdale, AZ

What is Breast Implant Removal?

After receiving a breast augmentation, some women may choose to have their implants taken out for a variety of reasons. At Forma Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, we perform breast implant removal to help patients live more comfortably or feel more confident. Because your skin can stretch from your previous augmentation, we may recommend a breast lift after your implant removal. A breast lift helps eliminate excess or sagging skin, which can remain after implant removal. If you want to return to your previous breast size or you feel uncomfortable, breast implant removal surgery and a breast lift can create beautiful results that enhance the look and feel of your breasts.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Implant Removal?

Women who have previously undergone a breast augmentation procedure and are experiencing discomfort, dissatisfaction with their results, or want to remove their implants for personal reasons may be candidates for breast implant removal at Forma Plastic Surgery. Of course, it is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon in Scottsdale, AZ to discuss your options and determine if breast implant removal is the right choice. Women who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the results are ideal candidates, but please keep in mind that each patient is unique and may require different approaches.

What to Expect From Breast Implant Removal

Implant removal surgery can treat a range of issues that an individual might experience after a breast augmentation, such as:

  • Scar tissue (capsular contracture)
  • Implant malfunction
  • Unhappiness with the breast implants

No matter the reason, breast implant removal can change the results of a previous breast augmentation treatment. Before your surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss your preferences and determine the best way to help you reach your cosmetic goals.

During your breast implant removal procedure, we take the implants out and any scar tissue. Scar tissue is common after breast augmentation. If the tissue impacts the shape of the breast or causes pain, you may need to have it removed. After taking out the implants and any scar tissue, we can perform a breast lift, fat transfer, or both. There are also several options to replace volume following an implant removal to improve the shape of the breast. We can discuss these options during your consultation.

Recovery time for breast surgery will vary for every patient. After the implant removal, small drains may be placed to decrease swelling and fluid retention. For the first few weeks, patients should limit strenuous exercise until instructed otherwise. Optimal results occur 4-6 months following the operation.
