Breast surgery involving breast implants, including breast augmentation and breast reconstruction, are among the most common procedures performed. Outcomes are associated with a very high patient satisfaction. However with life changes , including aging, pregnancy, changes in body type, changes in breast tissue ptosis (sagging) , capsular contracture (firm scarring around the implant causing pain and changes in the implant position) implant rupture or illness, it may become necessary to remove the implant. For some women, the decision to remove breast implants may improve appearance and self – confidence as well as provide access to a more active lifestyle free of discomfort.
The decision to remove breast implants includes considerations for breast shape and volume after implant removal. This includes the possibilities for Mastopexy (breast tissue /nipple areola lift) or skin and chest contouring ( post mastectomy).
