Breast implant removal can remove unwanted implants and restore your natural breasts.* Although breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, some 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, breast implants need to be removed for medical reasons. Astra Plastic Surgeryoffers breast implant removal for patients in Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
Breast implant removal surgery involves removing the implant and using the existing 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. Women choose to remove their breast implants due to:

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 breast implant removal surgery is the basis for our surgical plan. We will examine your breasts to determine if you are an ideal candidate and will explain the surgery and post-operative recovery.
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. You may be advised to wear a compression bandage following your breast implant removal to keep your breasts in the proper position. For the first few days, you will be tired, and you may have bruising, tenderness, swelling, and mild bleeding. Full recovery can take a few months, so you should plan to limit your activities.
Breast implant removal is a customized procedure, so the cost varies by patient. We provide a complete cost of the surgery after your consultation. You can pay by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
