Breast Impant Removal Surgery

Breast implant removal can remove unwanted implants and restore your natural breasts. Although breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, some Atlanta breast implant removal patients change their minds about having breast implants. In some cases, this is for aesthetic reasons; as the body changes, patients may no longer desire larger breasts. In other cases, implants need to be removed for medical reasons. Astra Plastic Surgery offers breast implant removal for patients in Atlanta and the surrounding areas.

What Is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal surgery involves removing the implant and using existing breast tissue to reshape the natural breast. To achieve the best results, you need a breast surgeon who is experienced in breast implant removal procedures. Shaping the breasts from the remaining tissue takes a great deal of experience to give you optimum results. It is not uncommon for women to choose to remove their breast implants due to medical concerns, such as ruptured implants and breast cancer, changes to the breasts that are caused by pregnancy and aging, or a desire to have natural breasts and to change the shape and size of breasts.

What Are The Benefits Of Breast Implant Removal?

Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team recommend implant removal surgery to provide patients with relief from any discomfort and to return the breasts to their natural size, shape, and feel. Patients who undergo implant removal can enjoy results that will improve their self-confidence and diminish the chances to experiencing complications caused by their breast implants.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Breast Implant Removal?

Our plastic surgeons want you to be happy about your decision to remove your breast implants, so we take the time to fully understand your motivation to have surgery. An evaluation for implant removal in Atlanta is the basis for our surgical plan.

The ideal candidate for breast implant removal is in generally good health and a non-smoker. If you are experiencing discomfort caused by your implants or have concerns about complications caused by implants, breast implant removal may be right for you. Additionally, some patients may choose to have their implants removed and replaced. Some of the complications that may require a patient to have their breast implants removed include:

Capsular Contracture:

“Capsules” of scar tissue can form around breast implants as part of the body’s natural healing process. However, this scar tissue can drastically harden and begin to close in on the implants, causing complications to arise.


Over time, patients may experience a small hole or tear in the lining of their breast implant. When this happens, the contents of the implant slowly leaks into the body, sometimes causing adverse physical effects.

Breast Sensation Loss:

In some cases, breast implant complications can lead to an increase/decrease in breast and nipple sensitivity. Although sometimes permanent, breast implant removal may help regain sensation.

Breast Implant Illness (BII):

Breast implant illness covers a wide range of symptoms that patients may experience as a reaction to their breast implants. Although BII can present differently from patient to patient, removing the implants can help ease discomfort.

What Can I Expect During Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

Breast implant removal surgery requires general anesthesia. Your breast surgeon will make incisions in one of several areas — around the areola, near the armpit, or under the breast. The size of the incision is based upon how much breast tissue must be moved in order to access the implants.

Your breast surgeon carefully removes the breast implant and examines the underlying tissue for signs of scarring. If possible, they will remove any scar tissue that may affect the shape of your natural breast. Your breast surgeon will work with the soft tissue to reshape the breast and then close the area with sutures.
