Breast Augmentation Doesn’t Have To Be Permanent
The great thing about breast implants is that the decision doesnʼt have to be a permanent. Itʼs quite common for women to change their minds about breast implants as their body and/or lifestyle changes. Fortunately, removing breast implants is a less complicated procedure than getting breast implants.
Procedure Overview: Breast Implant Removal
Removing breast implants is a simple and straightforward procedure and Michigan breast surgeon Dr. Rifai can usually use the old incision from when you had the implants put in. The removal process will vary depending on the type of breast implant you have. If you have silicone breast implants they will be emptied prior to removal. Those with silicon gel breast implants will have the implant carefully removed with the contents intact.
After your breast implants are removed, Dr. Rifai will inspect the cavity and attend to any internal scarring that may have developed while the implant was in place. The area will then be cleaned with a saline solution and the incision will be closed.
Recovery Time: Breast Implant Removal
The recovery from breast implant removal is minimal. You should expect little to no pain after breast surgery and the only restrictions are activities that would prevent the incision from healing.
Dr. Rifai has over 25 years of experience with breast augmentation, including breast implant removal, and will answer any questions you may have during your free consultation.
