For many people, breast implants are a way to boost confidence and feel more comfortable in their body. However, there are instances where breast implants go wrong. Maybe you had an inexperienced plastic surgeon, or maybe you had health complications that prevented your body from adapting to the breast implants. Whatever the reason, you always have the option of a breast implant removal if you need it. Hanemann Plastic Surgery offers breast implant removal in Louisiana, and you can also opt to have your breast implants redone by Dr. Hanemann, a renowned plastic surgeon, if appropriate. Here are some of the signs you might need a breast implant removal.
Continuous Pain or Swelling
Some pain and swelling around your breast implants is normal as your body adjusts to them. However, if you continue to experience these symptoms months or years after your implants are put in, it’s a sign that something is amiss. This is usually a sign that your body is not adjusting to the breast implants properly.
Fluid Buildup and Bruising
Another commons sign that your body is rejecting your breast implants is a buildup of fluid around the area. You may also start to notice bruises or other strange marks around your breasts, or even discharge coming from your breasts. There are many reasons this could occur, but it could be a sign of an infection or even a more serious condition. See your doctor right away to have your implants assessed and to check whether possible breast implant removal is necessary.
Lumps or Scar Tissue
A little bit of scar tissue is normal after any surgery. However, if you notice a large lump around or under your breast implants, this is cause for further concern. This is called capsular contracture, and it can lead to further issues with your breasts over time. Any unusual breast lumps should always be checked out, but they are particularly important to address if you have had breast implants put in.
Unfortunately, implants that were not put in properly can rupture if not taken care of correctly. If your implant ruptures, it’s important to have it taken out as soon as possible. Otherwise, it can lead to infection.
If you are having issues with your breast implants, it’s important to see a qualified plastic surgeon right away. Visit the team at Hanemann Plastic Surgery in Baton Rouge and Lafayette to learn more. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
