It happens more often than most people might think – but removing breast implants is a fairly standard procedure that many women undergo. Initially, women who get breast implants believe they are making a life-long decision, but many women decide to have the implants removed later on. Hanemann Plastic Surgery is proud to offer breast implant removal and multiple breast enhancement procedures.
Why Some Women Undergo Breast Implant Removal
There are so many reasons why a woman would undergo breast implant removal. It may be a decision based on emotion, or it may even be health-related. Sometimes it can be because of problems with one or both of the implants.
Some implants can cause ripples under the skin, causing an augmentation to look unnatural or unsatisfactory to a patient. Another condition that can cause a patient to undergo breast implant removal is a rare condition called capsular contracture.
Capsular contracture develops when internal scar tissue forms a constricting capsule around a breast implant. This can happen with any kind of implant. Scar tissue is the body’s natural response to the presence of a foreign object. However, capsular contracture only occurs when the scar tissue tightens or restricts the movement of the implant.
How About Replacing the Implant?
For those who choose to opt for breast implant removal, they have two options. The first option is that they can have the implant wholly taken out without being replaced. The other option is that they can have another implant put in. The implant can be the same size or a different size.
Who Can Get These Procedures?
Those who are unhappy with their breast implants or those who experienced complications are the ideal candidates for the procedure. However, certain stipulations need to be met for this procedure to be carried out.
