Breast Implant Revision
Breast augmentations are extremely popular and can make a big difference in your appearance, but they are not necessarily the right solution or a permanent option for all women who get them. Breast implants that are no longer desired or that are causing certain complications may need to be removed. Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles breast implant removal surgeon, can help you decide whether or not to keep your breast implants.
Dr. Kerendian, expert in breast implant removal in Los Angeles, may recommend implant removal if you have:
• Surgical complications, such as infection or bleeding
• Asymmetry or poor placement
• Breast implant deflation, leaking, or rupture
• Capsular contracture or scarring
• Weight gain or loss that has altered the appearance of the breasts
• Breast cancer
If you are a candidate for implant removal, Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles breast implant removal surgeon, will explain the process and your options at your consultation. The implants may be removed, on their own or with the capsule, the tissues surrounding the implants. The capsule does not necessarily need to be removed unless it is causing a problem. If desired, you may be able to have a breast lift when the implants are removed. The lift can address the sagging that can occur over time and will tighten the loose tissues.
The risks of implant removal can depend on the type of procedure you need, and recovery time will vary according to your needs and situation. Dr. Kerendian, expert in breast implant removal in Los Angeles, will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to minimize the risk of complications and to address any potential issues that may occur. You may need to avoid lifting heavy objects, engaging in strenuous activities, or exercising for a few days, or until Dr. Kerendian releases you to your normal activity levels. If you are prescribed medications, take these exactly as prescribed for the best results.
