Breast Implant Removal Surgery
Breast augmentation is one of the most common and widely requested cosmetic surgery procedures of all time. While plastic surgery itself has become far more mainstream than it once was, getting breast implants is still a big decision, that requires much thought and should have a lot of thought put into it. While you might think you are happy with the additional size, improved shape, and better contours provided by breast implant surgery, as the years wear on, many women end up reversing course and are no longer happy with their breast implants. This is a major reason why breast implant removal has become quite popular these days. At Goals Plastic Surgery, they are known for the best plastic surgery NYC has to offer, having helped countless men and women achieve their dream bodies. And having performed thousands of breast augmentation procedures over the years, they have seen this trend first-hand in recent years. During the late 90’s and early 2000’s, breast implants seemed to be the “it” form of cosmetic surgery, however as the times have changed, and society’s perceptions of beauty have gone towards a more natural (yet still enhanced) look, they have gotten a tremendous number of requests for breast implant removal. Just the same as having your breast implants put in, removing them is also a big decision, as it is of course, surgery. Therefore, it is important that you educate yourself as much as possible on the procedure and what the reasons for having your implants removed are. Here are 3 important things to know before having your breast implant removal surgery.
· Why Should You Seek Breast Implant Removal?
Just as with breast augmentation surgery to begin with, having your breast implants removed is a big decision, with a variety of important considerations to make behind the decision. At Goals Plastic Surgery they are known to provide the best plastic surgery NYC has to offer, they try to make sure women are absolutely sure before proceeding towards having their surgery done – as it is a life-changing decision to make. Some of the top reasons to consider breast implant removal surgery include:
o Damaged or Poor Implants – While implants are pretty durable, over time they can definitely leak or rupture in some way. Making one side deflate more than the other and a number of other complications.
o Changes in Body – Often, when women gain or lose weight, or even as a result of time – your implants will begin to look different on your body. If you lost a ton of weight, your breast may be way too big for your body size or shape now. They may appear less symmetrical, or in some instances due to their placement or your thinning skin, they may even become visible underneath the skin.
o The Size – Breast size, like all cosmetic surgery and body dimensions, like fashion and music, are a part of society that is subject to trends. In years past larger, more enhanced looking breasts were “in”, and today society is geared towards smaller more natural breasts. This may be a reason to remove your implants.
· Should You Remove or Replace Your Implants?
This is an important consideration to make is that if you are not happy with your current breast implants, whether it be because they have ruptured, leaked, the size is too big or they were put in when cosmetic surgery technology wasn’t as good – you can always have them replaced, rather then fully removed. Many women choose to go with more modern breast implants, that are more durable, and possible even a smaller size and better shape that is more in-line with today’s trends.
· Additional Cosmetic Surgery
You have to understand that if you want to have your breast implants removed, this means you must go under the knife once again. It is important to understand that all surgery has some level of danger associated with it, no matter if it is elective or not. Whether you are having them removed entirely or replaced, you should be ready for some pain, discomfort, and a couple of weeks of recovery to heal up. You may need time off from work, and bed rest, as well as to avoid physical activity for some time. Be sure to take this into consideration.
