Breast Implant Removal Atlanta
Breast Implant Removal Surgeon
Breast implant removal can remove unwanted implants and restore your natural breasts.* Although breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, some patients change their minds about having breast implants. In some cases, this is for aesthetic reasons; as the body changes, patients may no longer desire larger breasts. In other cases, breast implants need to be removed for medical reasons. Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery offers breast implant removal for patients in Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
WHAT IS BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL SURGERY?
Breast implant removal surgery involves removing the implant and using the existing tissue to reshape the natural breast. To achieve the best results, you need a breast surgeon who is experienced in breast implant removal procedures. Shaping the breasts from the remaining tissue takes a great deal of experience to give you optimum results.
Women choose to remove their breast implants due to:
- Medical concerns, such as ruptured implants and breast cancer
- Changes to the breasts that are caused by pregnancy and aging
- A desire to have natural breasts and to change the shape and size of the breasts
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL?*
Dr. Killingsworth recommends breast implant removal surgery to:
- Return the breasts to a natural size, shape, and feel
- Remove any concerns about implant ruptures
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL SURGERY?
Dr. Killingsworth wants you to be happy about your decision to remove your breast implants, so he takes the time to fully understand your motivation to have surgery. An evaluation for breast implant removal surgery is the basis for Dr. Killingsworth’s surgical plan. He will examine your breasts to determine if you are an ideal candidate and will explain the surgery and post-operative recovery.
HOW IS BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL PERFORMED?
Breast implant removal surgery requires general anesthesia. Dr. Killingsworth will make incisions in one of several areas — around the areola, near the armpit, or under the breast. The size of the incision is based upon how much breast tissue must be moved in order to access the implants. Dr. Killingsworth carefully removes the breast implant and examines the underlying tissue for signs of scarring. If possible, he will remove any scar tissue that may affect the shape of your natural breast. Dr. Killingsworth will work with the soft tissue to reshape the breast and then close the area with sutures.
You may be advised to wear a compression bandage following your breast implant removal to keep your breasts in the proper position. For the first few days, you will be tired, and you may have bruising, tenderness, swelling, and mild bleeding. Full recovery can take a few months, so you should plan to limit your activities.*
