Breast implant surgery is very common in today’s age. Breast implant surgery is used to change the shape, size, and overall contour of a person’s breasts.
Breast implant surgery is also used after a mastectomy (procedure for removal of the breast due to breast cancer or as a preventative measure known as risk reduction surgery) or to correct defects and deformities.
However, many people who undergo breast implant surgery run into complications down the road after the surgery. Many times, the complications result in another procedure known as Breast Implant Removal Surgery. We are going to go over popular reasons for Breast Implant Removal Surgery.
Every surgery has some potential risks, such as reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, poor healing, and several others. However, if everything is done properly the chances of these risks are very small. Moreover, it is noted that in almost every case of breast implant removal surgery, there will be some scarring, but this will fade with time.

There are two common techniques used for Breast Implant Removal Surgery. Let us have a look at the 2 techniques:
Incision Process (En Bloc/Total Capsulectomy)- This surgery is completed by making a small incision under the breast where the implants were inserted. This is the most common and preferred method of breast implant removal.
Deflation Method- This technique of breast implant removal surgery is used when the incision process is not able to provide a better solution. This deflation method is considered to be a non-surgical method of breast implant removal however small incisions are still required.

Let us have a look at the benefits of breast implant removal surgery:
In some cases breast implants can be removed in a procedure known as “percutaneous implant deflation”. This method is only an option for those who have saline breast implants. This method involves the intentional puncture and drainage of the implant contents. The implant can then be removed through a smaller incision resulting in minimal scar tissue and less down time.
The recovery time after breast implant removal is very similar to the recovery time of the initial breast enhancement surgery. Typically, you should expect at least one week to recover meaning that you will be out of work. Any strenuous activities will be postponed for at least three to four weeks.
