Breast augmentation can enhance the appearance of one’s breasts and improve one’s self-confidence and body image. The decision to have your breast implants removed is a very personal one. Oftentimes, patients decide later in life that they no longer want to have implants. Other reasons for breast implant removal include, capsular contracture, implant rupture, or deflation. Depending on your circumstances, Dr. Belz may recommend implant removal with or without a capsulectomy or a breast lift. During your personalized consultation, your expectations and surgical options will be discussed at length. The procedure itself is typically done as an outpatient surgery under general anesthesia. Dr. Belz will discuss incision patterns and whether temporary drains may be required post-operatively.
