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.
"Sarah was thorough, professional and kind. The atmosphere is relaxing and the med spa was spotless."- S.S. / Google / Nov 01, 2019
"Excellent Results from my Lower Blepharoplasty - I was referred to Dr. Ho by my daughter who also had the same procedure. My procedure was done on 9/2020. I am so pleased with my results and have had many complements from my friends saying I look younger and look refreshed. Dr. Ho and his staff are very personal and professional. I was so impressed with the follow up as well as the surgery. He did have to do a small procedure to take care of some sagging under my eyes which was quite successful. He did not charge for the additional procedure. Again, I strongly recommend him for any plastic surgery you may have."- E. / RealSelf / Oct 14, 2021
"Beyond Impressed with Dr. Vu Ho!!! - I was beyond impressed with Dr. Vu Ho and his entire staff!! From the minute I walked in the door, everyone was extremely kind and helpful. Dr. Ho carefully listened to my concerns, and not only suggested, but educated me as to which treatments would provide the very best results. I was looking for something non invasive and with very little down time, and he provided this option for me. My areas of concern were the fine lines and wrinkles on my face, as well as sagging skin on my neck. Dr. Ho recommend a combination of Morpheus8 skin tightening as well as PDO threads. My hopes and expectations were by far exceeded, as I couldn’t be happier with the smoothing, tightening and overall appearance of my skin. I am new to Texas, and as a healthcare worker with many years in plastic surgery, I was so impressed with how Dr. Ho is ahead of the curve on offering the latest and best technology. I wouldn’t go to anyone else after my experience at Beyond Beautiful!!!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 27, 2021

"Chin Finally Symmetrical! - I had the best experience with Dr. Wu Ho. This was my 3rd time getting chin surgery and finally the last one. I’m so happy to be done with this chin journey. I had a chin implant put in 7 years ago by a surgeon in Buenos Aires which I had removed a year later from it moving out of place. (Lesson learned) I had scar tissue left over which made my chin look asymmetrical. People only noticed once I pointed it out (like most of our flaws). I dealt with this for years and couldn’t take photos from straight on. I’m so happy to finally have a symmetrical chin & can wear my hair down the middle again. I did this procedure under local anesthesia & pronox (not for the weak). I didn’t have any pain during the hourlong procedure but I think I’d just rather be asleep & unaware of surgery happening. I only took the prescribed painkillers for the first day. Healing was quick. Scar looks great 3 months later. The staff are super friendly and professional and i felt like I was under great care. They spent plenty of time answering my questions and making me feel safe. I highly recommend Dr Ho & his team! I got a facial from their Esthetitian the week after surgery once my bandage came off which felt like pure heaven & a month later some cheekbone filler which turned out great!"- A. / RealSelf / Aug 31, 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.
