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. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina 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.

"I can't recommend Dr. Ho and his staff enough. He is the only person I have trusted to touch my face with injections or fillers. He always keeps you looking natural but just like a better you! I don't want to look like I'm "trying" too hard! I want to look like best version of me for my age. Recently I did a series of 3 Plasma Pen treatments. I am very happy with the results. He says I will continue to see results for a few months as things tighten and the collagen does its work. There was very minimal downtime involved and no pain. Within a few days I could cover the area with makeup and go about my business. All in all I highly recommend this treatment. The first photo is immediately after a treatment and the 2nd is 6 weeks post-treatment."- T.D. / Google / Apr 30, 2021

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.
