Removal of Implants


After years of having had breast implants some women want to have them removed. Times and people change and this sometimes causes people to regret previously made decisions.  

Dr. V always recommends patients to go see their original surgeons for removal of implants, but ultimately it is a patient’s choice.

Additional Information

This is a procedure that can be straightforward and easy but depending on the indication this can just as well be a lengthy laborious procedure.

If people suffer from painful capsular contracture we have to perform a total en bloc capsulectomy. Depending on the amount of your own breast tissue and ptosis we might have to opt for a remodelling of the breast afterwards. The scarring pattern depends on the amount of ptosis or sagging.

In cases with significant volume loss you might benefit from combining a breast lift with the removal of your breast implants. Sometimes we have to discuss the option of putting in new implants.

Having worked in major breast units Dr. V will tell you all about certain risks and complications involved with this procedure. This procedure starts with the consultation and proper assessment of your breasts. We decide on the desired result and discuss the goals and outcomes together.
