About Breast Implant Removal
Occasionally, after undergoing a breast augmentation to change the size and contour of the breasts, some women may choose to have them removed and taken out for any number of factors. At Sanchez Plastic Surgery in Baton Rouge, LA, Dr. Sanchez can consult with patients who have made the decision to remove their breast implants. At times, a breast lift might be required following implant removal based on the size and type of the former implants, as well as how much the skin was stretched. A breast lift can typically help reduce sagging or excess skin, which could remain after an implant is removed. Patients that desire to go back to their previous breast size can still attain a natural appearance with breast implant removal surgery. Dr. Sanchez will examine the breasts and create a treatment plan to help get your breasts as close to their original appearance as medically and cosmetically possible.

"OUTSTANDING PLASTIC SURGEON!!! I did a lot of research before I decided on Dr. Sanchez. His great reviews was what made me decide to make an appointment with him and he was even more amazing than his reviews. I was very nervous about having my procedure but he and his staff put me at ease from my very first appointment. My experience of having my tummy tuck surgery with him could have not been better. I am so pleased with the results so far. Every chance I get I tell people how great he and his staff are. If you’re considering having any procedures done, make an appointment with Dr. Sanchez and you won’t need to get a second opinion or price. His staff was fantastic and made sure I had everything I needed before and after my surgery. They will make you feel comfortable no matter how self conscious you may be and he will allow you to decide if it’s right for you and will be kind, caring and courteous. Best decision I ever made! Thank you Dr. Sanchez!!! Wendy"- W.M. / Google / Oct 31, 2018

Implant removal surgery may be utilized to fix a range of issues a patient may experience after a breast augmentation, such as scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and general unhappiness with the breast implants. Sometimes, women might simply prefer their original breast size and wish to restore their natural look. Regardless of the reason, breast implant removal surgery works to reestablish a natural, desirable aesthetic look. Even if a breast lift is needed in correlation with the removal, Dr. Sanchez will use the latest lift and incision techniques to create a natural-looking appearance. Before your surgery, Dr. Sanchez will talk with you regarding your desired look for your breasts, as well as the way to attain it.
During your breast implant removal procedure, the implants are taken out and scar tissue might also have to be surgically eliminated. Scar tissue is not uncommon after a breast augmentation and will need to be removed if it's affecting the form of your breast or causing discomfort. After the implants have been taken out, Dr. Sanchez will reshape the cavity so that it is clean of scar tissue and can then perform a fat transfer, breast lift, or possibly both based on what had been decided during your consultation. A fat transfer is sometimes performed to create an even shape and still add a natural amount of volume if it is depleted after the implants are removed.
What to Expect
The recovery period will vary for every individual, depending on the repair required after the procedure. After the process, Dr. Sanchez will provide post-procedure directions and might suggest additional procedures to help eliminate scarring. For the first few weeks, patients may experience swelling and bruising and must restrict strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. But, patients are invited to stand and gradually move around as it will help with blood circulation. Optimal results can normally be observed roughly 4 – 6 months following the operation.
