When getting breast implant surgery, it rarely occurs to us that we’ll ever want or need our breast implants removed in the future. Still, it happens, whether it’s due to medical or cosmetic reasons. If you’re considering breast implant removal in Murfreesboro, Tarola Plastic Surgery is happy to help you understand what the procedure entails. Here is what you should know before choosing to undergo this procedure.
1. For patients who are not opting for replacement implants, a breast lift may help
For those in Murfreesboro whose breast implant removal does not involve replacement implants, a breast lift may improve the appearance of breasts following the removal of implants. After implants are removed, patients who are interested in helping their bust maintain its structure could benefit from a breast lift.
2. Sometimes, the capsule will be removed, too, in a procedure known as a capsulectomy
If you have developed something known as capsular contracture, you will also likely undergo a procedure known as a capsulectomy. This is a procedure that removes the scar tissue that has hardened around an implant. During your consultation, Dr. Tarola will help you find out if this is something you will need to undergo.
3. Wearing breast support or compression garments after surgery can help recovery
Dr. Tarola may suggest that you wear a compression garment following your breast implant removal. A garment can help maintain the shape and lift of breasts following surgery.
4. The appearance of your breasts will improve in the weeks following surgery
The appearance of your breasts will only continue to improve following surgery. Patients are usually pleased with their results once their procedure has been finished. If you are unsure if breast implant removal is the right procedure for you, Dr. Tarola also provides breast revision surgery. We will help you get a better idea of which procedure is best for your needs during your consultation.
