What is Breast Implant Removal?
After undergoing breast augmentation to improve the size and contour of the breasts, a few women may choose to have them taken out for a number of reasons. At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL, Dr. Armando Soto consults with women who wish to remove their breast implants. At times, a breast lift may be needed after implant removal based upon the type of the former implants and how much your skin stretched. A lift can help to remove excess or sagging skin, which can remain after implant removal. If you are wanting to return to your original breast size, breast implant removal surgery and a breast lift can create amazing results to get back the natural look and texture of your breasts.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"I chose Dr. Soto over other plastic surgeons because of his depth and breadth of knowledge, his patience in explaining my procedure, and the way he put at ease because I was pretty nervous. His staff is also amazing, and they ALL go above and beyond, answering messages at all hours and on the weekends. I couldn’t be happier with my results - I highly recommend Dr. Soto."- R.O. / Yelp / May 05, 2021

"Amazing Doctor - I am beyond impressed with my results thus far - Dr. Soto and his staff are the absolute best ESPECIALLY Nurse Leinny- she is a God sent!

"Brest Augmentation - AMAZING!! - I have had small boobs my whole life (until now) and it always made me self conscious.. I always told myself when I am financially stable I’m going to do something about it. I was referred from a friend who’s starting point was similar to mine so I booked a consultation. I had originally planned to check out multiple facilities but when I visited Dr Sotos office the staff was amazing and Dr Soto was so genuine. I asked him “what cup size do you recommend” and he simply said..I will make them look beautiful and you find whatever bra fits. I loved that. I showed him some photos the day of the procedure and asked that he make them as big as possible but still natural and fitting for my body type. Which is exactly what I got!!! I’m in love and I have absolutely no regrets. Now I’m 5 months post op and my scars are almost non existent and they look natural!! Thank you so much Dr Soto!"- R. / RealSelf / Dec 11, 2020
Who is an Ideal Candidate for breast implant removal?
Breast implant removal may be employed to correct an array of concerns you might have after breast augmentation, including scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, and unhappiness with the new breast size. Sometimes, women might just prefer their original breasts and want to return them to their normal appearance. No matter the reason, breast implant removal can operate to counteract the results of breast augmentation, and if coupled with a breast lift, can reestablish a natural, desired aesthetic appearance. Before your procedure, Dr. Soto will talk with you about your aspired look for your breasts and the way to reach it.
How does breast implant removal work?
During the breast implant removal surgery, the implants are taken out and scar tissue might also have to be eliminated. Scar tissue is common after receiving implants and needs to be removed if it is affecting the form of your breast or causing discomfort. After the implants have been taken out, Dr. Soto may execute a fat transfer, breast lift, or both based on what was decided upon during your consultation. There are also a number of choices to restore volume following implant removal to enhance the shape of your breasts.
What can I expect after breast implant removal?
The recovery time will vary for each patient, depending on the repair needed following the implant removal. After the surgery, Dr. Soto will provide post-procedure directions and may suggest treatments to help eliminate scarring. For the first 2 – 3 weeks, patients will experience bruising and swelling and should restrict strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. But, patients are encouraged to get up and gradually move around because it will help with blood circulation. Optimal results can typically be observed roughly 4 – 6 months following the procedure.
