Breast Implant Removal in West Hills, CA

What is Breast Implant Removal?

Sometimes, after getting a breast augmentation, women may decide to have their implants removed for a variety of reasons. In West Hills, CA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Hwang performs breast implant removal surgery. At times, a breast lift may be needed after implant removal based upon the size of the former implants and how much your skin has stretched. A lift can help reduce sagging or excess skin, which can remain after implant removal. If you want or need to return to your previous breast size, breast implant removal surgery and a breast lift may create amazing results for you. Contact Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery for more information.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal surgery may be used to fix an array of issues a patient might have after a breast augmentation, including scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and dissatisfaction with the new breast size. In some cases, women might simply prefer their original breast and wish to restore their natural look. Regardless of the reason, breast augmentation removal can work to counteract the outcomes of a breast augmentation and — when coupled with a breast lift — can reestablish a natural, desired aesthetic look. Before your surgery, Dr. Hwang will talk with you regarding your wanted look for your breasts and how to attain it.

What to Expect from Breast Implant Removal

During your breast implant removal surgery, the implants will be taken out, as well as possible scar tissue surrounding the area. Scar tissue is common after a breast augmentation and may need to be removed if it's affecting the shape of your breast or causing discomfort. After the implants have been extracted, Dr. Hwang may perform a fat transfer, breast lift, or both, depending on what was discussed as part of your treatment plan. The recovery time will vary for every individual, and for the first few weeks, you may experience bruising and swelling. Optimal results can typically be seen approximately 4 – 6 months after the operation.

Restore Your Natural Look

Are you dissatisfied with your current breast implants? Whether they are the wrong size or shape, or causing symptoms of breast implant-related illness, Dr. Hwang can help by performing breast implant removal surgery. At your consultation, he will discuss your options to restore the look and feel of your breasts.
