What is Breast Implant Removal?
After getting breast augmentation to enhance the size and contour of the breasts, some women may decide to get them taken out for a variety of factors. At Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX, Dr. Jeffrey Caruth consults with women who wish to remove their breast implants. In some cases, a breast lift might be needed following implant removal based upon the type of the former implants, as well as how much your skin stretched. A lift can often help minimize sagging or excess skin, which can remain after implant removal. If you're needing to go back to your original breast size, breast implant removal surgery along with a breast lift may help to restore the original appearance and feel of your breasts.

"The results were immediate and the bruising post op was minimal - Sorry for the long review in advance but I want to be thorough! I am in my mid 30’s and have had under eye bags for as long as I can remember. It’s been something that has always bothered me and I hated seeing myself in pictures. Looking at my parents I knew genetics were not on my side, then when family and strangers started asking me why my under eyes were swollen I knew I had to get it fixed PRONTO!So my search for the perfect surgeon commenced… I found Dr. Ho on RealSelf and liked his work, I quickly made a consultation and right off the bat I was pleased with how friendly his staff was. The day of my consult arrives and Dr. Ho comes into the room and immediately makes me feel at ease. He took his time and discussed all the options, I shared my concerns and he answered all my questions and most importantly, he didn’t try to up-sell me on any other procedures. Feeling confident I was in the right hands I scheduled the soonest possible appointment for the surgery and we were off! The day of the surgery his staff were super sweet and excited for me, I opted to only do local anesthesia, the procedure was quick, relatively painless and the best part, no stitches! The results were immediate and the bruising post op was minimal! I couldn’t be happier!! My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!I’ve been back to Dr. Ho a few of times since for follow up appointments and to get lip filler, which were best and most natural results I’ve ever had. I am still completely amazed and grateful at level of skill and professionalism of Dr. Ho and his amazing staff who are the most encouraging and supportive group of women I have encountered! I highly recommend Dr. Ho at Beyond Beautiful!"- S. / RealSelf / Apr 25, 2022
"This post is long overdue. I have been seeing Sarah for over a year now. She is the medical esthetician. She not only is kind and sincere but extremely well versed and talented in her work. I don’t get in as often as I should, but when I do, the experience is relaxing and enjoyable. I always leave feeling amazing. Her conversations are delightful and her work is pristine. She always takes her time and my skin is glowing when I leave. If your looking for a esthetician that exceeded your expectations then you need to see Sarah. You can tell she loves what she does."- W.A. / Google / Mar 29, 2022
"Highly recommend Dr Vu Ho! This doctor is an artist and Will do a wonderful job at any of the services he can suggest. Highly recommend booking a consultation with him for any of your aesthetic needs!"- T.B. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2022
"Love how naturally Bellafill enhances my facial features - I was looking to get PDO threads to lift my skin just slightly and Dr. Ho recommended BellaFill instead. I was a bit nervous since it's a permanent filler, but the results were fantastic and super natural! I've done fillers in the past and hate that they go away with time. I love how naturally BellaFill enhances my facial features and that it will last for many years to come. Dr. Ho and Glory work together as a team which I think is very clever since one person alone can be biased. They are very careful not to overdo it which I appreciate and I learned so much about facial anatomy with them! This has been by far the best experience I've had with a filler."- F. / RealSelf / Feb 24, 2022
Am I a Candidate for Breast Implant Removal?
Implant removal surgery can be utilized to correct a range of issues you may have after breast augmentation, such as scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and unhappiness with the breast size. Sometimes, women may simply prefer their original breasts and wish to restore their natural look. Regardless of the reason, breast implant removal can function to counteract the outcomes of breast augmentation, and when combined with a breast lift (if needed), can restore a natural, desired aesthetic look. Before your procedure, we will talk with you about the desired look for your breasts and how to achieve it.
How Is Breast Implant Removal Performed?
During your breast implant removal operation, the implants are taken out and scar tissue might also have to be eliminated. Scar tissue is typical after breast augmentation and will need to be removed if it's affecting the form of your breast or causing pain. After the implants are removed, we can carry out a fat transfer, breast lift, or possibly both, depending on what was decided upon during your consultation. There are also a number of alternatives to restore volume after implant removal to enhance the shape of the breast.
What Results Can I Expect from Breast Implant Removal?
The recovery time will vary for each patient, depending upon the reconstruction needed after the implant removal. After the surgery, we will provide post-procedure directions and might recommend additional procedures to help eliminate scarring. For the first few weeks, patients will experience bruising and swelling and should limit strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. But patients are invited to stand and slowly move around as it can help with blood flow. Optimal results can normally be observed approximately 4 – 6 months following the operation.
