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 went to Beyond Beautiful for PicoSure laser treatments for my hyperpigmentation from years and years of acne. I was nervous because I knew the negative effects lasers can have on ethnic skin. However, Sarah was very thorough with her explanations and treatment plan. She knows what she is doing and it made it that much easier to trust her. She also has had experience with doing laser treatments on asian skin tones. The laser itself was not painful. Numbing cream is applied for 15-30 minutes prior to the laser. Your face is red afterwards for about 30 minutes, but otherwise no huge downtime like other lasers. I was able to go about my day as normal the day of. I started seeing results within 3-4 weeks and could see my hyperpigmentation fading well! Overall, I am happy with my treatment and Sarah and will be getting more treatments in the future from her!"- B.H. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"I had my ZO 3 step peels earlier this year- one in January and the 2nd in February. Sarah did such an awesome job. It was not painful at all- there is a fan you can hold to keep the cool air on your face. Sarah talked me through the process and the aftercare. There was no peeling for almost 3 days. It started peeling around my chin and mouth, then the 4th day it started working its way up my face. The peeling was not painful and was completely gone after about the 6th day. My face was refreshed and had new pink skin. If you are considering this peel I highly recommend! It is worth the money and so easy. Sarah can answer all your questions and makes herself available if you have questions throughout the process. I will be doing another one this winter!"- K.C. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done - The process was so easy and Dr. Ho and staff were kind, friendly and helpful. I had this procedure done by Dr. Ho about 10 years ago and it was time for a touch-up. The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done. I just looked fresher and less hagged-out and tired. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who wanted to look a bit fresher and happier."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 29, 2020
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.
