Breast implant removal with replacement implants
During this procedure, incisions are in the same place as the incisions for the original surgery. The old implants are removed, and the new implants you chose are inserted. The incisions are then carefully closed.
Breast implant removal with fat transfer breast augmentation
In some cases, women no longer desire implants, but would still like to have larger breasts. A fat transfer breast augmentation achieves a more natural enhancement, increasing the breast volume by 1-2 cup sizes, depending on the amount of fat reabsorbed by the body post-surgery.
During the fat transfer procedure, excess fat from a predetermined area of the body is removed. The harvested fat tissue is carefully purified, then injected into the breasts to achieve greater volume, enhanced shape, and symmetry.
Breast implant removal by capsulectomy
Women who are experiencing capsular contracture may choose a capsulectomy to resolve their concerns. Capsular contracture is the hardening of the capsule, tissue that the body forms around breast implants. If this tissue becomes infected, the breasts harden and become painful. A capsulectomy can be performed to remove the breast implant and surrounding capsule together.
During this procedure, an incision is made at the bottom of the breast, then upward to the areola. The implant and the capsule are meticulously separated from the surrounding tissues and removed together.
Breast implant revision with breast lift
If the breasts are sagging, a breast lift can be performed during breast implant revision. Once the breast implants are removed, a breast lift can be performed to lift the breasts to a more youthful position. The same incision points are used. If desired, the nipples are repositioned higher-up on the breast mound, helping to restore a perky, youthful appearance.
