Breast implant removal is the surgical removal of old silicone or saline implants. You may undergo the procedure because you no longer want implants. You could also choose surgery if your implants are causing problems, or if your breasts have grown or sagged since the implants were first placed. People frequently opt for implant removal because scar tissue has hardened around the implant, resulting in capsular contracture. If this situation has occurred in your case, consulting a specialist cosmetic breast surgeon is needed. This should lead to the best consultation, and you can remove the implant without causing unnecessary damage to other organs in your body.
A surgeon may also remove scar tissue, take tissue samples, or clean out leaked silicone from the implant pocket during the procedure. You might want your surgeon to replace old implants with new ones, or if you are having recurrent difficulty with implants, maybe you don’t want implants at all. Sometimes people require Explantation Surgery because of implant complications. Whatever the reason, visiting a professional surgeon is the best decision.
Believe it or not, breast implants do not last forever. Breast implants should ideally be monitored clinically and with MRI scans on a 2-yearly schedule, or removed or replaced every 10 to 15 years, according to the evidence that around 10% are ruptured within the first 10 years. However, if you haven’t had any complications, your breast or plastic surgeon may not recommend that you have them removed, adopting the MRI surveillance schedule recommended by the FDA instead. Apparently, some people choose to have their breast implants removed because the shape of their breasts has changed since their augmentation. Breast appearance may change as a result of ageing, breastfeeding, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. The droop of breast tissue below the implant can look quite unnatural.
