Removal of Breast Implants

Minimally Invasive Removal

Removal of Breast Implants: Overview

Removal of Breast implants is not a common request by patients or well known in the surgical community. When a patient has tired of their breast implants and want them removed they often want this done with minimal recovery. What most patients fear is that after removal of the implant, that they will have a sagging breast that is going to need a lift. This is often not the case. If there’s no skin hanging over the crease then there is no extra skin. This is called being deflated. The volume was removed. The best way to remember this is: if you are not hanging or dangling from your attachments, Then you do not need a lift.

When patients have decided that implants are no longer right for them Dr. Gray can remove the implants through minimally invasive procedures.
