What are my options for breast implant removal? - Raffy Karamanoukian, M.D. - Plastic Surgeon in Los Angeles

What are my options for breast implant removal?


A breast implant is a medical device that has a finite lifespan.  Over the last three decades, plastic surgeons have noted the high level of safety and effectiveness of breast implant augmentation for volume enhancement of the female breast.  There are some patients, however who have opted to remove their breast implants in their entirety and not replace them with a newer breast implant.  This may be as a result of a history of breast cancer, presence of BRCA gene that places them at risk of breast cancer, or a change in lifestyle that prompts reduction of the breast size.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a specialist in breast implant removal and can help you undergo this procedure with minimal downtime and recovery.  In many cases, a breast implant removal is combined with a breast lift in order to improve the position of the nipple and areola after breast augmentation. 


A breast lift is an outpatient cosmetic surgical procedure that can redefine and recontour the breast without breast implant. If you have silicone or saline breast implants and want them removed, Dr. Karamanoukian can provide you with full details regarding your options for breast implant removal in Los Angeles.  He performs outpatient plastic surgery in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.  If you have questions about breast implant removal and explantation of breast implants, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533.  Dr. Karamanoukian can provide you with full details of breast implant removal, breast lift, mastopexy, and breast reduction surgery.  Our office patient care coordinator can be reached at 310-998-5533.
