There are several reasons why a breast implant may need to be removed, the most common reasons being a change of size and shape of the implant, implant leakage or rupture, and capsular contracture.
Other times it is due to your body’s reaction to the implants themselves or the occurrence of a medical condition:
- Diagnosis of breast cancer
- Capsular contracture
- Formation of calcium deposits
Dr. Jejurikar performs breast implant removals with general anesthesia and the procedure usually takes one to two hours depending on the case.
Initial recovery from breast implant removal surgery is usually quick, with many patients returning to everyday activity within a few days and full activity within two to three weeks. Full recovery often takes a few months.
