Breast Implant Removal / Breast Implant Extraction

Breast implant removal in New Jersey removes breast implants due to medical or cosmetic concerns. Breast implants may be removed for cosmetic reasons when a patient is unhappy with the results from a previous breast augmentation surgery or if significant changes in a patient’s figure are causing breast implants to appear less natural-looking. Medical side effects, such as capsular contracture or an infection, may require breast implant removal. Dr. Asaadi performs breast implant removal surgery at our NJ office.

What is breast implant removal?

Breast implant removal is a procedure designed to extract breast implants. Breast implant removal can be combined with breast implant replacement or breast lift surgery. A combination approach ensures that the breasts appear full, youthful, and natural-looking.

Our NJ breast implant removal surgeon offers breast extraction surgery for a variety of reasons. In many cases, a patient may no longer be happy with their breast implants. As a patient ages and their body changes, they may feel that their breast implants no longer complement their figure.

While breast implant surgery is a very safe and effective procedure, in some cases, there are medical reasons that may require breast implant removal, such as capsular contracture, infection, accident, or injury. Capsular contracture occurs when too much scar tissue forms around the implant. This results in the breast becoming too firm. Dr. Asaadi believes that capsular contracture can be avoided when proper surgical techniques are used. To ensure safety and natural-looking results, Dr. Asaadi only uses saline breast implants and the inframammary approach when performing breast augmentation surgery. This allows for a successful and safe breast implant procedure.

If a patient experiences an accident or trauma, breast implants can leak or rupture, requiring the removal of the implants. Breast implant removal is also available for patients seeking to exchange silicone implants for saline breast implants.

Over his years of practice, Dr. Asaadi has accomplished a 100% success rate of breast implant surgery with no capsular contracture or implant leakage.

What can I expect before breast implant removal?

Breast implant removal in New Jersey is typically performed on an outpatient basis. Prior to breast implant removal surgery, Dr. Asaadi will perform an evaluation of the breasts and determine the best approach for your case. During this consultation, Dr. Asaadi can also discuss if combining breast implant removal with breast implant replacement or a breast lift may be right for you.

To begin your breast implant removal surgery, anesthesia will be administered to ensure patient comfort. A small incision will be made beneath each breast where the implant can be removed. After the breast implants have been removed, Dr. Asaadi can either close the incision or begin the next procedure if you have decided to undergo an additional surgery. Some of the most common procedures combined with breast implant removal include breast implant replacement, breast explant surgery, and breast lift surgery.

Breast implant replacement can replace implants after breast implant removal surgery. Patients may choose to undergo breast implant replacement if they are looking to change the type, size, or shape of their breast implants.

What can I expect after breast implant removal?

Following breast implant removal, Dr. Asaadi will inform you of any post-operative instructions and care. Patients may experience tenderness, swelling, and mild bruising around the incisions. These symptoms will gradually fade during the first few weeks. It is important to follow post-operative instructions closely. You must avoid physical activity until your breasts have had time to heal properly. The recovery time for breast implant removal varies patient to patient.

The importance of choosing a highly experienced breast implant removal surgeon

It is important that you choose a skilled breast implant removal surgeon who understands your individual anatomy. When the right plastic surgeon performs breast implant removal surgery, there is usually no need for a revision. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering breast implant removal.
