Breast explant surgery in New Jersey is designed to remove breast implants. Breast augmentation is a safe, low-risk procedure when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon. In some cases, patients may experience cosmetic or medical concerns with breast implants. Breast explant surgery can remove breast implants for patients who are no longer happy with their augmentation results. More women are choosing breast explant surgery to remove silicone breast implants and replace them with saline breast implants.
Breast explant surgery is a procedure where implants are removed from the breasts. Breast implants are usually removed due to a cosmetic or medical concern. Breast explant surgery is often combined with breast implant replacement or a breast lift. One of the most common reasons patients seek breast explant surgery is that they are no longer happy with their breast implants. This can occur if a patient underwent breast surgery with a less experienced surgeon and feels their results look artificial. Patients may also become unhappy with their breast implants as they age. As a patient’s body changes with age, weight gain, or weight loss, breast implants may no longer complement their figure.
Aside from cosmetic concerns, patients may also need to undergo breast explant surgery for medical side effects. Some of the most common medical concerns of breast implants include infection, capsular contracture, and implant rupture. Dr. Asaadi believes that capsular contracture is completely avoidable when the correct techniques are used. A breast implant rupture is typically painful but can go unnoticed. A silent rupture occurs when a breast implant is damaged or leaking but is not detected. While breast implant ruptures are not as common, Dr. Asaadi will only use saline implants during breast augmentation to produce safe, natural-looking, symmetrical results. Patients seeking breast explant surgery at Asaadi Plastic Surgery may choose to simply remove their old implants or can opt to remove their breast implants and replace them with new breast implants. Dr. Asaadi may recommend breast explant surgery to remove silicone implants and exchange them for saline implants.

|Implants May Be Too Large Or Too Small||Breast Implant Leak Or Rupture|
Prior to breast explant surgery, Dr. Asaadi will perform an evaluation of the breasts to determine the best approach for your procedure. During this consultation, Dr. Asaadi will discuss any symptoms, complications, or concerns. Details about breast implant replacement or a breast lift can also be discussed if the patient chooses to undergo a combination of procedures. To begin breast explant surgery, anesthesia will be administered to ensure patient comfort. A small incision will be made under each breast’s natural crease. This incision is where the implant can be removed. After the breast implant has been removed, Dr. Asaadi can either close the incisions or begin another procedure, depending on your goals. Some of the most common procedures that are combined with breast explant include breast implant removal, breast implant replacement, and breast lift surgery.

Common side effects following breast explant surgery include breast soreness, pain, swelling, and bruising. These symptoms will fade during the first few weeks after breast explant surgery.

Avoid excessive activity and lifting until the incisions around the breasts have had proper time to heal.

When the right plastic surgeon performs breast explant surgery, there is usually no need for a revision.

Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have always had bags under my eyes, but as I became older, they seemed to get worse. Every time I looked in the mirror, all I saw were those bags. At least once a day at work, someone would ask me if I was tired. So, when my daughter announced her engagement, I thought it was time to do something. I made an appointment with Dr. Asaadi to see what my options were. My surgery was scheduled for August of 2012.
I was scared and apprehensive, but it was the right decision. I feel like a new person. No one asks me anymore if I am tired and I don’t shy away from having my picture taken. Dr. Asaadi and his staff have been terrific, so caring and professional. I only took one week off from work, and the bruising was minimal.
I probably would still have the bags if my daughter didn’t get married.
But, I am so thankful I had the surgery. And I was the proud mother of the bride. - M.W.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have known Dr. Asaadi for fifteen years. I first met him in my fifties. I look tired and worn out and looking for a more youthful appearance. In meeting Dr. Asaadi he presented a picture of a very sincere and up standing person.
He took the time to go over my goals and together we outlined what was needed. I had rhinoplasty and eye corrective surgery. Down time was minimal and the results perfect.
Several years later I had a face lift and again was completely satisfied.
Presently I am 69 years old looking way better than when I first met with him. Let me add that since my surgery Dr. Asaadi has maintained my youthful appearance by using injectable fillers. He is a true genius and a very honest person whom I highly recommend.
Also his staff is the best - A.E.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Just a short note to tell you how happy I am and to thank you for your wonderful work. As soon as I walked out the door from our first consultation, I had this “feeling” and I knew you were the one I could put 100% trust in. Thank you for your attention to detail, the care you’ve shown me, and your warm personality. I count myself luck to know you.
Thanks and all the best to you!
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“I am so very grateful for the tummy tuck that Dr. Asaadi performed on me. Dr. Asaadi has proven to me to be a meticulous artist of the body. I felt that the office and staff compares to no other. It has been 5 years since my surgery, I am 42 years old and I am feeling and looking just as good if not better since surgery. I am more confident putting on my clothing, especially bathing suits. Dr. Asaadi gave me my belly back from 20 years ago (pre-babies)."
I not only feel better in the way in which my body looks, but most important it changed the way I view myself inside and out.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
My name is Paula and about a month ago you gave me some botox injections. I had recently finished nine months of very tough treatment for a stage III breast cancer and I was neither feeling nor looking my best. My hair had just begun to grow but I still was showing way too much forehead for my comfort zone so I thought perhaps a little botox would give me a "lift".
Well, I cannot say enough about my results. I feel fantastic about the way my skin looks. In fact, the other evening I bumped into some friends at a restaurant. The first thing they said to me was "your skin looks fabulous! Even better than before your diagnosis." Now that's amazing. Since seeing you, I have received numerous compliments about how alive I look. Well, I do have a great attitude but I have to say that your skillful work has really made me feel confident.
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I wish all women who have been through treatment could feel as good as I feel. Thank you Dr. Asaadi.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“After 10 years of hearing comments about how tired I appeared, I decided that the time had come for me to take action which required more than just getting extra sleep!!!
I did my research and decided that Dr. Asaadi was the best choice upon seeing the results of past patients and the unique technique that he uses.
Now, close to two years later, I couldn't be happier! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I now feel refreshed and vibrant. No more comments about how tired I appear.
This surgery not only restored my youth, but it greatly improved my confidence level. As a salesperson and a single girl, this is incredibly Important!!! Whereas prior to the surgery, I couldn't even think about walking out the door without makeup, now I am completely comfortable with it. No more trying to conceal or detract attention from the severe bags under my eyes!!! Friends and relatives, and even sometimes I, cannot believe the difference this surgery has made! One of the best parts is that it looks incredibly natural. No one would ever know I had anything done unless I had told them. A yearlong spa getaway would not have produced such results!"
It was hands down the best money I ever spent!!!!! I feel like I'm a walking billboard for Blepharoplasty.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“Once I decided to undergo a tummy tuck procedure, I knew my appearance would change for the better. What I did not anticipate is what a profound effect the results would have on my overall way of life. Along with giving me the body I wanted, the transformation gave me a great sense of confidence, reassurance, and security with myself. I now walk upright and confident, as opposed to slouched and submissive. I enjoy shopping for clothes and wearing two piece bathing suits on the beach.
If anyone is contemplating having this procedure done, I strongly encourage them to do so."
Thanks to Dr. Asaadi I have the perfect body and a better life. - CT
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you - the phrase is simple and the words are few, but behind them lies a world of appreciation. Special people like you make the world a brighter place.
Thank you for helping me get better. Also to improve day by day my special future. I pray God bless your hands to help the life of others.
On May 12, 2010 Dr. Asaadi performed a bilateral reduction mammoplasty, CORE AbdominoplastySM, repair of diastasis recti, VASER® LipoSelection of the back, flanks, upper inner thighs, pubic area, lateral chest walls, and a small area of the upper arms. I was very sore for the first week, but after that I could see improvement every couple of days. The more I walked the better and stronger I felt.
In exactly six weeks after the surgery I went with my daughter, son-in-law, and their 13 month old son to a destination wedding feeling great. My daughter was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to take care of the baby like I needed to ( her and her husband were in the wedding), but I had so much more energy and strength than I did in years. I felt so wonderful in my new clothes, and I can’t begin to express how many compliments I received.....especially in my “Tankini”!!!
I now look forward to getting up in the morning and picking out a nice fitting outfit for the day, and not some loose fitting shirt and baggy pants. Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you for all your professionalism and time spent going over the procedure. I am pleased thus far; I can only imagine my gratitude in the months ahead, as I see my nose transforming. I put my face in the hands of a true sculptor and have nothing but praise and recommendation. Your staff are a wonderful representation of your reputation on being a true caring practice. Many Thanks.
