When to Consider Implant Removal
Patients can decide to undergo breast implant removal—sometimes also known as explant surgery—for a number of reasons. When you meet with Dr. Albert for your consultation, he’ll get to know your cosmetic goals and learn about your reasons for wanting your breast implants removed. He’ll talk to you about whether or not you want to replace your implants, or whether you would prefer to return to a more natural look, without implants.
Some of the main reasons we find patients considering explant surgery include:
- A change in preference
- Capsular contracture
- Implant migration
- Implant rippling
- Ruptured implants
