Breast Implant Removal With Lift

While many women are highly satisfied with the look and feel of their breasts after breast augmentation with implants, some women change their mind. Changes in lifestyle and aesthetic desires, implant complications, breast pain, and fear of breast implant illness cause some women to return to their plastic surgeon for a revision. Dr. George Alexander performs breast implant removal for women who wish to permanently part ways with their breast implants. Removal can be a standalone procedure; however, many women experience breast sagging after the implants are gone. A breast lift can be performed during the implant removal procedure to ensure that the lighter, smaller breasts remain youthful and elevated.

Reasons for Implant Removal

Breast Lift Incision Options

A minimally compressive garment should be worn initially to minimize bleeding, promote blood circulation, and facilitate healing. After removing this garment, some patients can switch to a sports bra for several weeks as the incisions heal and the residual swelling subsides. Most women return to work after one week to 10 days, although it will take up to six weeks to fully recover and resume exercise programs. All strenuous activity and heavy lifting are prohibited during this time. During your consultation, Dr. Alexander will provide you with extensive aftercare instructions that will include all physical limitations and recommendations.

Dr. Alexander pays meticulous attention to where and how the incisions are placed. He does his best to make these incisions small and inconspicuous. When possible, Dr. Alexander will use your augmentation incision when removing the implant, and he will carefully place the incisions during the breast lift portion. All scars fade and blend into the skin with time.

Dr. Alexander performs implant removal with breast lift under general anesthesia and a dual local anesthetic technique that assures both safety and comfort during and immediately following the procedure. The majority of discomfort is experienced during the first 48 hours, and Dr. Alexander will prescribe oral pain medication to help you through this initial stage. Over-the-counter pain medication usually suffices after this time.
