What can I expect for recovery after breast implant removal? Los Angeles Breast Surgeon

What can I expect for recovery after breast implant removal?


Breast implant removal can be performed for patients who no longer want breast implants, the patients who have capsular contracture and severe scarring after previous breast implant surgery, or patients who have had complications from breast implants that warrant removal.  The majority of patients with breast implant removal options should consider the volume of the breast that will remain after breast implant removal.  Once the breast implants are taken out of the body, the residual breast tissue will form the majority of the remaining breast tissue.  The position of the nipple and areola should also be considered as an important determinant of whether there will be excessive sagging and skin laxity after breast implant explantation. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs breast implant surgery and breast implant removal for patients who no longer wish to have breast implants in their breast.  Both saline and silicone breast implants can be removed with minimal surgery and minimal recovery.  If you are considering breast implant removal or explantation of existing breast implants, Dr. Karamanoukian can provide you with several options for post surgical contouring of the breast. 

Please call 310-998-5533 and speak to one of our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinators to determine whether you are a candidate for breast implant removal
