What is breast implant removal in Miami?

Breast implant removal (also called explant surgery) is a medical procedure performed to remove one or both breast implants from the body. In many cases, it is possible to replace the removed implant with a new one, should the patient so desire. In some cases, stretching, lifting or removing part of the tissue or skin may be necessary to achieve a more natural appearance post-surgery. In these more complex cases, subsequent surgeries will likely be required.

Reasons to do a breast implant removal in Miami

There are several reasons a patient may decide to have their breast implants removed. At times, an explant removal is medically indicated. Other times, a patient may simply no longer desire to have their implants. Our professionals are here to help you make this decision by informing you of all the options that are available to you.
Some of the reasons a patient may undergo breast implant removal surgery include, but are not limited to:

  • Damage to the implant, in which case removal of the implant is medically necessary.
  • Scar tissue normally forms around an implant. If the scar tissue hardens it may cause pain or discomfort, in which case a patient may desire to remove or replace their implants.
  • Infection, bruising, or alterations in the position and shape of the implant. In such a case, the physician will assess the need for removal or retouching of the implants.
  • In case of suspicion of disease potentially caused by the breast implants, and after thorough discussion with the physician, it may be recommended to remove the implants.
  • Pain or discomfort as a result of the implant. If you are not comfortable with the sensation, you may choose to have your breast implants removed.
  • Aesthetics or self-perception of the body. A patient’s body and/or aesthetic opinion may change with time. In these cases, a patient may desire to remove their implants.

Preparation for breast implant removal Miami

Any necessary preparation before the extraction of the breast implants will be explained in detail by our professionals.

What is breast implant removal surgery like?

Our professionals will thoroughly explain your surgical procedure in advance and ensure you are well prepared for your surgery and recovery. Specific surgical steps will depend on the complexity of the case. Some factors that may play a role are the type of implant used, the amount of scar tissue, and whether or not you desire to replace your implants. Generally, a breast removal surgery will consist of the following steps:

  • You will likely receive general anesthesia to keep you sedated and comfortable throughout the surgery.
  • An incision will be made in the same location as the initial breast augmentation or in a new location under the breast. Next, the implant and any scar tissue will be removed.
  • If you do not desire replacement of your implants, the breast tissue may be reshaped by removing excess skin or stretching some breast tissue. These steps significantly improve the appearance of the breast post-explant. If you desire replacement of your implants, the physician will place the new implants.
  • The physician will then close the incision with stitches, medical tape, or surgical glue. If necessary, a drain will be placed to absorb any additional fluid.
  • After surgery, you will wear a bandage or compression garment to support the healing process.

What is the price of breast implant removal in Miami?

Several factors may influence the surgery cost, including whether the patient desires their implants to be replaced and whether the patient desires an additional fat transfer procedure to reshape the breasts. Other factors that play a role in the surgical procedure and therefore cost of the procedure include the patient’s previous scars, the desired breast volume, and the elasticity of the patient’s skin.

Breast implant removal: risks and precautions

The risks associated with breast implant removal surgery are the same as for any other surgery. For example, allergic reactions to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, and bruising are typical risks of any surgery. Other possible complications include hematoma (accumulation of blood) and changes in skin sensation. Despite preventative measures, such as perioperative antibiotics and antiseptic techniques, there is always a slight chance of infection at any surgery site. It is also important to consider that the size and shape of your breast may differ from what they were before implant placement. For example, your breasts may sag or droop, and your nipple position may be different than before implant placement. Your skin may have stretched or hardened due to breast scarring. These changes may be addressed with subsequent surgeries or as part of your implant removal surgery.
