Breast Implant Revision / Removal

Breast implants are not meant to last forever. Over time, they may need to be removed or replaced due to size, placement, or issues such as rupture or rippling. It’s also valid if you grew dissatisfied with your breast augmentation results and wish to return to your original cup size. Regardless of your reason, breast revision surgery at Dr. Patty Miami allows you to enhance, replace, or remove your implants.

Why Consider A Breast Revision Surgery?

There are many reasons why you may consider breast implant removal, also known as explant surgery. Perhaps you are considering removing or replacing your implants because you are no longer happy with their size, type, or placement. Or maybe you wish to correct a breast implant complication, such as:

IMPLANT RUPTURE: today, breast implants are designed to be durable. But in rare cases, a leak or rupture may occur, requiring removal or replacement.

BOTTOMING OUT: as skin ages, it loses its natural elasticity and begins to sag. In some cases, implants can drop below the breast crease making the nipples appear too high and the implants too low on the chest.

RIPPLING: some women, especially those who are very thin, may develop implant ripples that are visible on the surface of the skin. This can be corrected by removing or changing the placement of the implants or with fat transfer to camouflage the gaps.

CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE: one of the most common complications from breast augmentation surgery, this condition happens when an excess of scar tissue forms around the implant. When this happens, the implant can become stiff, distorted, or painful.

What Does Breast Implant Revision Involve?

Whether it is implant removal or replacement, breast implant revision surgery aims to address any imperfections or complications following primary breast augmentation. Breast revision surgery may involve any of the following procedures:

Breast Implant Removal

If you weren’t satisfied with the results of your initial breast augmentation or simply want to return to a more natural look, breast implant removal surgery might be an option. Your surgeon may even be able to remove your implants using the same incisions created on your initial augmentation surgery to minimize scarring.

Breast Implant Replacement

If you’ve had implants for over 10 years, it may be time to replace them. During your complimentary consultation, a board-certified Dr. Patty Miami cosmetic surgeon will meet with you one-on-one to evaluate the current condition of your implants and advise you on the next steps for replacing them.

Breast Implant Removal With Lift

If you are removing larger implants or have had them for several years, you may need a breast lift to correct the drooping and sagging that occurs when the breast tissue has been stretched by implants. During this procedure, your surgeon can also reconstruct or reposition your nipples, so they are front and center of your rejuvenated breasts.

Candidates For Breast Implant Removal / Revision

The best way to determine if you are a candidate for implant removal or revision is to [schedule a complimentary consultation] with a cosmetic surgeon at Dr. Patty Miami. In general, ideal candidates for breast implant removal or revision are women who are experiencing difficulties with their existing implants or want to go back to their natural size and shape.

You may want to wait before your explant surgery in Miami, FL., if you:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have an unaddressed medical condition
  • Are a smoker
  • Are younger than 18 years of age

Recovering From Breast Revision Surgery

IMMEDIATELY AFTER

The recovery from breast implant removal surgery will be similar to your original breast augmentation. You can expect some degree of bruising and swelling after the procedure, as well as varying levels of pain or discomfort for the first couple of days.

You will be closely monitored at our private recovery suite until you are ready to go home. Like your initial surgery, your breasts will be wrapped in elastic bandages and/or a surgical bride to ease swelling and provide support. Make sure to have your prescribed pain medications within reach and appropriate pillows to support your neck, back, and arms while you rest.

1 Week

Many patients feel well enough to return to work in 7 to 10 days, but you need to avoid all types of exercise and strenuous physical activity while your breasts continue to heal. During your follow-up appointment, your dressings will be removed, and you’ll be able to see your beautiful new breasts for the first time. Your surgeon may recommend you to continue wearing your support bra for several more weeks.

2-3 Weeks

Most of the swelling and pain should have subsided by now. You may begin to ease back into physical activity unless your surgeon advises otherwise.

1+ Months

All the bruising and swelling should be gone, and your scars will be looking much better. About 6 weeks after your procedure, you should be able to resume all physical activity, including upper body exercise.

Breast Implant Removal / Revision FAQs

How Much Does Explant Surgery Cost In Miami?

It’s important to keep in mind that your breasts may not return to their pre-breast augmentation state, particularly if you are having larger implants removed. And since skin loses its collagen and elastin over time, your age will also play a role in how your breasts will look following your implant removal surgery.

Is A Breast Lift Necessary After Implant Removal?

At Dr. Patty Miami, we recommend a breast lift at the same time as the implant removal surgery. A breast lift, also called mastopexy, helps restore the shape and volume that your breasts have lost due to implant removal or the natural aging process.

How Will My Breasts Look After Implant Removal Surgery?

Yes! Breast revision is a customizable procedure that can be combined with other [surgical] or [nonsurgical] cosmetic enhancements for comprehensive results, including:

  • [Mommy Makeover]
  • [Tummy Tuck]
  • [Liposuction]

or…

  • [Botox]
  • [Fillers]
  • [Lifting threads]
  • [Sculptra]
