Breast Implant Removal

Breast Implant Removal

shutterstock_110541740-300x200 Breast Implant Removal | Northern VirginiaBreast augmentation presently ranks as the number one plastic surgery procedure in the United States. The sustainability and success rates of breast implants have improved significantly over the years. 

However, a majority of women still need implant removal or replacement at least once in their lives.

In reality, as many as 40,000 women receive breast implant removal surgery annually in the US. If similar-sized breast implants are replaced, the procedure is relatively simpler. Sometimes breast implant removal may be undertaken in combination with a breast lift.

Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast implant removal to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.

 

Reasons for Implant Removal

Breast implant removal surgery is sought by many women because they are not happy with the current size or shape of their enhanced breasts, or their cosmetic preferences have changed over time. Another major reason for women seeking breast implant removal cosmetic surgery is capsular contracture. 

Sometimes the implant may move from its original position, develop creases or folds, rupture, deflate, or become damaged, or asymmetry may develop between the breasts. 

In rare instances, bleeding or infection may occur if the woman has a poor response to the implant, or she may develop breast cancer. Breast implant removal will be necessary in all of these cases.

 

Procedure 

The procedure is relatively simpler if the breast implant removal is followed by implant replacement. But in case the implants are not replaced, the surgery is often performed in combination with a breast lift as the breasts tend to droop after the removal of implants. 

The breast implant removal plastic surgery is usually completed in around one hour and may involve general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.

The surgeon will commence the procedure by cautiously removing the capsule or scar tissue around the implant. Then they will remove the implant. In the case of saline implants, the surgeon may deflate them before removal. 

The surgeon’s goal, as far as possible, will be to use the same incisions for implant removal that were used for the primary breast enhancement surgery.

In some cases, the surgeon may have to perform capsulectomy. This involves the removal of the breast capsule. This is typically performed if the implant is not being replaced, the new implant is to be placed in a new position, the new implant is more substantial, or the new implant is of a different texture or type. 

If the patient does not require implant replacement, her breast pocket where the original implants were placed will close with time. The pocket will close faster if she wears a compression garment or breast support. In addition, this will minimize the possibility of fluid collection in the pocket. 

 

Recovery 

The recovery will differ between patients depending on whether the implants are replaced, a breast lift is undertaken, or any complication has arisen. In a majority of cases, the recovery will be similar to that of the primary breast procedure.

Alternative to Silicone Breast Implants by Using Ideal Implants

shutterstock_234815998-300x215 Alternative to Silicone Breast Implants by Using Ideal Implants | Northern VirginiaSilicone gel implants are FDA approved and safe when intact. However, when they rupture, the FDA states that the implant and any gel should be removed. But silicone gel ruptures are silent, which means that they can only be detected by an MRI. 

Therefore, the FDA recommends women to have an MRI scan every alternate year to understand whether their implants have ruptured. The Ideal implant offers a natural feel without these issues. 

The Ideal implant has a soothing feel and does not present the risk of silent rupture and offers youthful shape and definition, and many other benefits to women over round silicone gel implants. 

Women will always know if their implants are intact simply by viewing a mirror, as they should not have to choose between a natural feel and peace of mind.

Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast augmentation surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities. 

 

Benefits of Ideal Implant over Silicone Gel Implants

If a woman wants a natural, beautiful, and safe outcome that does not leave her wondering if an implant may have ruptured, she may consider the Ideal implant structured breast implant technology.

An Implant inspired by Women’s Concerns

The innovative design of the Ideal implant is what offers it a natural feel and youthful appearance without the use of silicone gel. It consists of a series of implant shells nested together as well as two separate chambers to hold the saline. 

It consists of standard implant materials, yet has a cutting-edge internal structure to manage the movement of the saline and support the implant edges to minimize collapse and wrinkling.

The Ideal implant has undergone ten years of development, testing, and refinement, which includes the clinical expertise of many board certified cosmetic surgeons. These implants have been approved by the FDA as well as Health Canada in 2014.

Women seek Ideal implants as they no longer need to decide between a beautiful, natural appearance and their peace of mind knowing that their implants are not ruptured. 

 

Materials Used

The Ideal implant is a structured breast implant made from safe and proven breast implant materials as well as time-tested production processes.
