Breast Implant Removal Without Replacement

1 Year Following Implant Removal Without Replacement
1 Year Following Surgery

This woman came to consultation desiring her breast implants of many years prior be removed. She felt they were quite large for her frame. The "Over the Muscle" placement may have had something to do with that as they were only 300cc models. Soft tissue coverage is key in maintaining reasonably natural results. The distortion seen here before removal shows that her soft tissue coverage was not adequate for these implants in this position.

Post-Removal images don't always look better than those before surgery. This patient's Post-op looks better than her Pre-op.

  • Before: Previously Augmented With 300cc Saline-filled Implants in the "Over The Muscle" position by another practice.
  • After: A cup
  • Operative Design: Removal of breast implants with their scar capsules through the same incision used to place them.
