Whether you simply want to go back to your natural breast size, or you have had your implants for a while and you want or need to replace them, breast implant removal is one of the lesser talked about cosmetic surgeries. The implants, which will sit either directly under the breast tissue or behind the muscle depending on your original augmentation surgery, will be removed either through incisions underneath the breast or around the nipple. This is done under general anesthetic so that you don’t experience any anxiety or discomfort. If you are having your implants replaced, this can be done at the same time as the removal. However, if you are having your implants taken out and are not having them replaced, you may need a breast lift procedure since, depending on the size of your implants, you may find that you are left with excess, stretched skin. This lost volume can cause the breasts to sag and you may feel self-conscious. As such, it is possible to combine a breast lift procedure with your implant removal.
