Breast Implant RemovalBreast Implant Removal
Breast Augmentation is a procedure women seek to enlarge the size or shape of their breasts. The reversal of this procedure is explantation or Implant Removal. There can be many reasons for a woman to seek explantation of her implants. These can include hardened or painful implants, rupture of an implant or medical and health issues that develop after implants have been placed. When the implants are removed the scar tissue or capsule surrounding the implant is also removed. After removal, the pressure of the implant on the remaining tissues can sometimes leave depressions of stretched skin with less than ideal cosmetic outcomes. Fat injections can be used to fill out depressions left by the implant and to enhance volume, shape, and size. Breast Lifts or Mastopexy can also help to reshape the remaining breast tissue. Dr. Maxwell will listen to your concerns and provide professional guidance to help in the decision-making process.
