Breast Implant Removal: Then and Now

The journey of breast implant removal stretches back to the advent of breast augmentation procedures. In the past, these removals were often reserved for medical necessities, like correcting implant issues or addressing health concerns. Early removals could be complex, involving large incisions and prolonged recovery times.

Today, breast implant removal has evolved significantly. It’s no longer solely about necessity but often driven by personal choice. Whether for health, aesthetics, or lifestyle changes, modern removal procedures have become less invasive. Dr. Guilfoyle and the Peak Plastic Surgery team, for instance, have honed their expertise to ensure that patients experience a seamless transition from implant to implant-free. Their commitment to safety and patient satisfaction has elevated the practice of breast implant removal to a new level of excellence.

Breast Implant Removal FAQ

How much does it cost to remove breast implants in Utah?

The cost of removing breast implants in Utah can vary based on factors such as surgical time and the need for additional procedures like re-implantation or a lift. For removal without any other procedures, it may be as little as $3000. At Peak Plastic Surgery, we recommend an in-person consultation to discuss your specific goals and determine the most suitable approach, including potential costs.

Will insurance pay for breast implant removal?

In most cases, insurance companies consider surgeries related to breast implants as cosmetic. However, if a silicone gel implant ruptures, insurance may cover the removal, but typically not the re-implantation. It’s advisable to check with your specific insurance provider to understand their policies.

What happens if I want to remove my breast implants?

If you’re considering removing your breast implants, we recommend an in-person consultation to discuss your goals. During this consultation, we can plan together whether you would like a re-augmentation, mastopexy (breast lift), or any other procedures to achieve the cosmetic look you desire.

Do breasts go back to normal after implant removal?

The shape and size of breasts may change after implant removal. The remaining breast tissue can be different from when the implants were initially placed, with the skin tending to be looser, and breast tissues may droop more. Most patients who choose to remove their breast implants may require a mastopexy (breast lift) for a better shape.

What age should breast implants be removed?

There is no specific age requirement for breast implant removal. The decision to remove breast implants is typically based on specific reasons such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, or symptoms associated with breast implant illness. If there are no complications or symptoms, breast implants are designed to withstand the life of the patient.

What do nipples look like after breast implant removal?

When patients choose to have their breast implants removed, and particularly if they opt for a mastopexy (breast lift), the appearance of the nipples can be adjusted. During the mastopexy, a technique like using a cookie cutter on the nipple may be employed to reposition it. The resulting nipple and areola complex size will vary depending on the patient’s breast size and the specific details of the procedure.

How do I know if my breast implants need to be removed?

The most common reasons for considering breast implant removal include implant rupture, capsular contracture, or symptoms associated with breast implant illness. If you experience any of these issues, it’s crucial to have a discussion with your plastic surgeon, such as the professionals at Peak Plastic Surgery, about your surgical options.

Is breast implant removal major or minor surgery?

Breast implant removal is typically considered a minor surgery. The procedure itself is generally straightforward and involves the removal of the implants. Pain is usually managed for 24 to 48 hours, and most patients undergo a breast lift. While additional procedures may be performed, breast implant removal alone is generally considered less invasive compared to the initial implant placement.

What happens if you leave breast implants in too long?

Breast implants are designed to last for a long time and are not typically required to be removed for specific time reasons. However, leaving them in too long without addressing potential issues may lead to complications. The most common reasons for considering implant removal are infection, rupture, capsular contracture, or symptoms associated with breast implant illness. Regular check-ups can help monitor the health of the implants and address any concerns.

“The primary goal of breast implant removal surgery is to safely and satisfactorily remove breast implants based on the patient's needs.”
